The author gives insights and suggestions I can live with, and that's really important to me. Also, I could eat raw fruits and vegetables all day long, but if that isn't the desire of my family, I need to come up with a balanced plan that will work for all of us. This book gives helpful references and some good, healthy recipes that even my husband could go for (wishful thinking?)...anyway, I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is ready to embrace a healthier lifestyle through good nutrition. Forget about trying to lose weight and getting skinny for the summer --- this is not that kind of book. Why not do something different? Instead of starting from the outside in, why not start from the inside out?
With good intentions she makes many statements without much backing - relying on common knowledge from what the media pumps out - and lots of other statements quoted directly from doctors, books, etc. Several foundational statements she makes I rejected, because in my research and reading I found information that shows the opposite. I just did my best to eat all the good hay and spit out the few sticks.
I thought the book would focus mainly on Scripture, and in many ways it did. However, many of the foundational principles were still taken from doctors or research or other books, without biblical basis. It just depends what you are looking for. If you are just starting out on the healthy eating journey, this is a great jumping off point. The author includes a lot of wonderful self-examining questions and suggestions for how to start from where you are today.
There were also several subjects left out that I wish had been covered, i.e. sprouting, soaking, fermentation, etc.
And, there is a section in the back that has some good recipes. So, all in all, a great book to use as a spring board into the wonderful world of Nutrition--not as much detail as some would like, but the resources to find the wanted detail.
We prepared our study for the congregation and then had a social hour serving several tables full of foods prepared like they had in Bible times.
