The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia: A Comprehensive Resource for Healthy Eating by Rebecca Wood

The one-of-a-kind encyclopedia of natural, whole foods that shows you how to eat right and feel better.

To a large degree, the quality of what we eat determines our health, and many cultures understand that food is the best medicine for what ails us. Arranged alphabetically, fully cross-referenced and indexed, and illustrated with line drawings, The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia provides information on how to select, prepare, store, and use medicinally more than 1,000 common and uncommon whole foods, from acorn to zucchini and aduki (a healthful Japanese bean) to zapote (a tropical fruit). Sidebar anecdotes, unique recipes, historical background, and a complete glossary of terms also contribute to the book's modern, user-friendly format.

For three decades, Rebecca Wood has conducted workshops and seminars on whole foods cookery and the properties of foods according to Western, Ayurvedic, and Chinese models. The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia shares her wisdom with a new generation of readers at a time when the benefits of holistic medicine are being recognized by the entire medical community.

With a Foreword by Paul Pitchford, author of Healing with Whole Foods.

Wood received both the 1998 James Beard Award and the Julia Child/IACP Award for her latest book, The Splendid Grain

Perfect, easy reference and take-along book to keep in your shopping cart whenever you go to the market. I keep mine in the bag where I keep my food shopping to-do list. It has attracted a fair amount of attention from other shoppers because I take it into the market/store with me and consult it when I am choosing ingredients. The front cover is well-designed to catch attention, with its title "Whole Foods Encyclopedia" and the background colored photo of fresh vegetables. It has introduced me to new produce and simple, delicious ways to prepare produce which was previously "exotic" to me. Highly recommended for every person who wants a broader choice of produce and new ways of preparing them for everyday meals.
