Overview

A complete guide to the healthiest foods you can eat - and how to cook them!

Why get your nutrients from expensive supplements when you can enjoy delicious, nourishing foods instead? From almonds to yucca, readers will find out what nutrients each of the 150 featured foods contains, what form contains the most nutrients, if it's been recommended to combat any diseases, where to find it, how to prepare it, and how much to eat - plus wonderful recipes using these sometimes obscure foods! Indexes by nutrient, by disease, and by food make finding what you need a snap, and the at-a-glance format makes the information as easy to digest as the foods themselves.

This is a great book. It really comes handy. It's natural foods with natural remedies as well. I recommend this to anyone.

This is an awesome book but you can not change the font size so it is really hard to read on nook color.

This has a clean, simple style that makes for very easy reading, and--more important in the long run--easy reference down the line. It is also very all-inclusive: there are foods and ingredients that aren't necessarily run-of-the-mill for us in everyday American culture, yet they have multiple specialists weigh in on them. So this wide variety of healthful things for our bodies is a fantastic tool. Additionally, as i mentioned multiple specialists, the authors consult many others, and it becomes like obtaining many second-opinions all at once. It frankly even makes a pretty and interesting coffee table book. Originally, it was recommended to me by the biggest health nut I know-he was right.

Great descriptions with wording a non medical person understands. The form makes it easy to remember and add to your everyday meals.

If you're looking to fix your diet and fill it with healthy foods this is an interesting list of those things you should consider and why. The benefits and some cautions included which is rare for a food book! He also recommends using this book in conjunction with medicine instead of instead of, again a rarity.Interesting stuff but you need to add your own salt and as he recommends himself, check and double-check the information.

If I give up bread and processed food, then all my problems will be solved. Eggs, seafood, some meats, nuts, some oils, fruit and all the veggies I want and then I¿ll be healthy. But, dammit, what¿s a sandwich without bread? It ain¿t a sandwich. Not ready to give up bread. (Yes, carbs are addictive. Or at least bread is.) This is an informative book. I¿m just not at a place in my life to go without some processing.

I have bought six copies of this book--five as gifts for friends and family. This is a wonderful guide for general healthy eating and it also provides detailed information on nutrition involving specific ailments/health issues. The photographs are also great. I love this book.

"The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" is very informative. Good information. We highly recommend "Rainbow Green"; "The Green Foods"; "The Raw Food Revolution Diet"; and "Raw 50" are very informative books. "Complete Idiot's Guide To Eathing Raw" is a good book to start with for learning about raw food. It has good recipes and a simple layout. We also recommend "The Sprouting Book" by Ann Wigmore; "Ani's Raw" by Ani Phyo (but be careful with using all recipes with nuts - you'll gain weight); all Moosewood books (they are not all raw, but have good raw and not raw recipes) "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home" (best simple starter); "Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special"; "Simple Suppers"; "Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates"; "Sundays At Moosewood Restaurant"; and "Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites" (although I don't recommend "low-fat" - just use healthy fat - you can see the difference "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" by Jonny Bowden)

Love the book, bought it as a gift for a friend, she and her husband love it too. It's a very useful book for me and it has helped me get a grip on understanding what the various fruits, vegtables, grains, and oils do for the body. It give great informaiton about what is the best for the body. It's like a food dictionary. It also helped me to know what I need to realistically buy organic. It's a great resource and tool. I tell all of my friends about it and they love it too.

Love this book. Instead of having to read lots of articles, different things in different places - you have everything in one book. Well written (it makes surprisingly easy and enjoyable reading), a lot of information. well resourced, objective. Even though I have a huge knowledge of what is and isn't good for you, I found this book very inspiring and motivating. Started to eat even healthier already.
