I discovered Maria Romana when I read her book " Little Miss Straight Lace", which is an outstanding novel. But, Mrs. Roama has a vast history of medical knowledge and scientific knowledge as well. I highly recomment this easy to read Good, Glorious Food book for all healthy conscieous people and you may want to pick up a copy of her wonderful and humorus novel as well. Little Miss Straight. A very fast paced houorus mystery romance novel.
If you eat a lot of chain restaurant and "brand" food, you might also look at "The CalorieKing, Fats & Carbohydrate Counter 2012."
It does have a table of contents, but it's impossible to use the search button to look up any one particular food. The table of contents lists food categories such as nuts, milk products, vegetables, etc., but you have to scan the entire list to find what you are after. I knew from the reviews that it had problems, and most mentioned the lack of an index. I went ahead and purchased it, because of the mention there was an index, so I thought this was a newer volume. I thought I would sample it first, but when I've sampled other books on the Kindle, if I haven't wanted to purchase them, it automatically makes the purchase anyway. I no longer use the sample feature because of that. The price was cheap, so I'm only out a few bucks for something I'll probably send to the bone yard.
