It is so nice to have all the information about antioxidants and their ORAC rating all in one small place. I love this book and the recipes are a huge bonus. It is so easy to read and so empowering, it just makes you want to eat well. I highly recommend this book for all readers. It's just the facts, and that is so refreshing.

After reading the recipes, I'd just like to remind people to use very high quality olive oil when cooking at higher temperatures, so that the oil doesn't smoke, go rancid and create even more free radicals in your body! Also, I typically recommend almond milk over soy milk to my patients, for health reasons.

This is a must buy for your library and your health!

This is a fantastic book on what fruits and vegstables will benefit you most in terms in antioxidants. The ORAC values are available for free from the USDA wesite, but its not as easy to read or carry with you as this little book.

I have read books on diet and nutrition before however, I have never put into context the importance of QUALITY. This book is an essential guide to being able to identify quality. I have heard and read of antioxidant rich foods over the past few years, but I did not truly know what that meant. I thought I was a fairly healthy eater with some bad habits to work on. After opening my eyes to the availabity and simplicity of a healthy eating lifestyle, I have been more motivated than ever to eat better and live healthier. It truly is easy! With this small pocket guide I literally keep it in my purse for quick review for times when I have second thoughts about an item. Having the Antioxidant Counter readily available is great. I am now making quick and healthy choices with ease.

I have been looking for a book that summarizes practical, healthy eating. I find that a lot of books are loaded with excessive information that I'd like to read, but never really have the time to. This book was awesome about getting to the point and helping to make clear, easy, healthy eating choices. The books is broken into sections. My favorite section was the first chapter that addressed "What should I eat?" This chapter did a great job of getting me back on focus about eating real food. I was so inspired that I went home and got rid of all of the processed food in my pantry and freezer, which was pretty eye opening. My second favorite part of the book was the extensive list of antioxidant-rich food. The list was referenced based on the food type: fruits, grains, herbs, vegetables etc... That made looking up a food item really easy. The last part I liked about the book was the recipe section. The recipes are listed based on the meal of the day: breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. That made looking up recipes really easy. Overall this book has served me quite well and I would recommend it to other people trying to make healthy food choices without having tons of hours researching!

The Antioxidant Counter is a resource guide, not a fad diet book which so commonly clutter the shelves of bookstores today. The chapters are a light read, primarily for people who need quick suggestions on good food choices. This is not a book for heavy nutritional education, nor was it designed to be. Nutrition can be a confusing subject matter and finding two people to agree is a rarity in the industry. People can use this book to make better eating choices where it is most important, at the grocery store where they buy their food. I enjoy it and have already used the guide a few times to reference some food choices while shopping.

i would give this book 10 stars if i could! amazing info who knew there was so much antioxidant acttivity in an apple, dried red beans, or a piece of dried fruit? i am single so using up fresh fruits and veggies without going to the store everyday was a real chore. using dried fruit in my smoothie (thinking dried peach, mango, guava) can provide a real antioxidant boost and help cut down on chronic inflammation.

the recipies in the back of the book are an added bonus.

the tables are easy to read to find info quickly.

This book is a must for anyone trying to clean up their diet and their act. Though the guide itself is helpful beyond measure, I found a special love for the recipe section. The green smoothie recipe will change the way you eat forever! This basic jumping off point has lead to some new magical creations in my kitchen, and is bound add a healthy jump start to anyone's bland or bad habit infested eating regiment.

Have you ever gone to the farmers market and had no idea what the veggies were? This book not only helps you understand food but it is simple to understand and gives you that recipes to boot! Something every health conscious person needs to own.
