Thinking of discarding the leaves of raspberry plants? Think again. The astringent leaves of red raspberries are traditionally taken as a tea in late pregnancy. I don't recall Handmaid's Tale educating me about this fact. I guess, you can't learn everything from TV. ...more

Notes:
the writers admit that we should be eating butter, liver, raw milk and meat but none of the recipes include these items; it's all pomegranate, kale, quinoa and salmon like every other book out right now; but that aside this book is very pretty!!

It's been so long since I put this book on hold, it took me awhile to remember why I wanted to read it, and then I went and looked at the publisher, and voila ... DK ... that said it all!

As I've said numerous times before, you can't go wrong with DK!

There are a few different sections here. The first, takes the reader through various individual foods. Sections are broken down by Fruits, and then Orchard Fruits, Vine Fruits, Berries and Currants, etc. There are also sections for Vegetables, Seeds It's been so long since I put this book on hold, it took me awhile to remember why I wanted to read it, and then I went and looked at the publisher, and voila ...

There are a few different sections here. The first, takes the reader through various individual foods. Sections are broken down by Fruits, and then Orchard Fruits, Vine Fruits, Berries and Currants, etc. There are also sections for Vegetables, Seeds and Sprouts, Medicinal Herbs, Cereals & Grains, Dried Beans, Spices, Fats & Oils, Fermented Foods, Meats, Oily Fish, and "Other Foods".

There is one=page dedicated to each specific food. At the top of the page is the name of the food, and then what it is good for. In this case, Garlic, and it's good for A natural anticoagulant, Helps strengthen the immune system, Removes toxins & pollutants, and Contains anticancer substances.

Next is a brief paragraph that supports the above information.

From here the page is separated -- on one side are pictures of the various parts and types of garlic -- leaves, dried garlic bulb, fresh garlic, wild garlic, flowering stalks, and garlic scapes, and a very brief description of what each is good for. On the other side of the page, is exactly what garlic is good for: Heart Health, Immunity, Detoxifying, Cancer, Regulates Blood Sugar Levels, and then brief descriptions of each.

Under this, there are small sections called "How Do I Get the Best From It?" and "How Do I Use It?" that are both very informative.

The next section provides "Recipes That Heal", with specific sections for Heart Health, Good Digestion, Liver Health, Skin Health, Healthy Joints, Boosted Energy, Stress Relief, Men's Health, Women's Health, and a Healthy Pregnancy.

The final section has a "Recipe Chooser". You pick what you want to have for a given day, and there are quite a few options.

At the end of the book is a list of supplements, an Index by Health Area, and a General Index. ...more

Also includes descriptions of a variety of seeds and sprouts, medicinal herbs, and fermented foods. According to the authors, we need to include in our diet not only vitamins and minerals, but also the phytonutrients found in plants that support health, such as antioxidants which protect the body from free radicals. They argue for a varied, seasonal diet rich in plant foods from local, organic sources (organic, because they have higher percentages of nutrients) to help protect against some types of cancer, dementia. depression, heart disease, and arthritis. To achieve this, they suggest you "choose foods like multigrain breads and granola that have variety "built in," and eat side dishes and condiments, such as fruit and vegetable salads, sprouted seeds, fresh salsas, pickles, and chutneys. Another way to get variety, they say, is to eat stir-fries, casseroles, and soups with many ingredients.

Overall, I like this book. The ingredient list is thorough (they even point out, for example, that apricot kernels are edible and have anticancer properties). I also like how they provide lengthy lists of recipes that make use of their dietary principles and target certain ailments, such as heart disease and urinary problems. However, the authors need to provide more scientific evidence to back up some of their claims, such as the health benefits of organic foods and phytonutrients. They even make the suspect claim that "these [organic] methods are legally defined in most countries of the world and any food that is sold as organic must be strictly regulated." Really?! Is that true in the U.S.?! Consumer Reports says the opposite. They also tout the "detox" benefits of certain foods, though I have doubts that the concept of "detoxifying" your body is scientifically supported. ...more

I loved this book...but I love everything DK Publishing prints. The visuals are by far the best!

Use this like a dictionary, dip in where you need to do so.

This book as great descriptions of foods and excellent recipes as well. Use this book to improve your cooking skills and to introduce new ingredients to your kitchen.

This book would make a great gift for a foodie or a developing cook.
