Thanks to the author for finally writing a healthy living / informative / cookbook / eating guidebook - that everyone who buys food for their family and friends can live by and use for years to come. My grocery shopping --- especially for grains, fruits and vegetables -- has completely changed and my husband and 3 kids are ecstatic with the food I now keep stocked in my house.
This will be my hostess gift, relative birthday gift and "go-to" gift for a long time... Thanks!
The "teaser" facts presented are interesting and draw you in to learn a little more about each food. The consistent format for each food makes it easy to jump from one to another to learn what you want to know quickly.
It's also great to have a book that doesn't spend time telling you what not to eat, but telling you what *to* eat. It makes embarking on a healthy eating plan less daunting when you have a ready made shopping list rather than just a confusing exclusion list, and makes it a more positive experience.
What I especially like is that you don't just get a list of foods, but specific instructions about what to do with them, how to select them, how to store them and recipes to prepare them.
I wish the texts for the biology classes I teach were written with such clarity and conciseness.
At first, I used Dave's book to expand my family's diet/palate (how much chicken and broccoli can you eat?). Now, my three-year-old regularly begs me for acai berry juice, kiwi and other things you wouldn't expect toddlers to like. Our daughter's tastes, at 17 months, seem to vary according to her mood, but it's good to know that we're introducing her to a wide range of delicious foods with equally wide-ranging health benefits.
Moms with limited time, take note: the recipes, in addition to being incredibly innovative (e.g. tequila shrimp, guava and cheese empanadas), are straightforward, tasty, and won't trash your kitchen. If your kids are old enough, they're also easy enough to serve as basic cooking lessons. No better way to teach kids to appreciate food!
The biggest surprise is that I find myself turning to Dave's book as a medical reference. Not for broken legs or anything, but for colds and other common illnesses, it's useful, comforting (and effective!) to turn to healing foods in addition to - or instead of - medicines that just block symptoms instead of relieving them.
After a month of use, my book's pages are crusted and filthy - what better endorsement for a food book?
