There is a lot to like about this book, but I wish the author had conflated less the nutritional and mystic properties, and given more concrete information. The book is actually less informative than it appears because it fails to provide any solid basis for the statements it makes about foods' properties, even nutritional properties that should have been easy to quantify and qualify. It's often vague about the food's properties and not clear if the attributed benefits are physical or metaphysical. (I will not comment on her information regarding mystical properties because that is not what interests me.) As an example: She notes that beans are filling and relieve constipation but doesn't finish the idea and add that it is because **they are good sources of protein and fiber**. She finally does mention that they are high in fiber, but it's a paragraph later and she doesn't really connect this to their health benefits.
I also would have to question some of the stated benefits: I'm not sure I'd eat a lot of blackberries to alleviate diarrhea. I'll agree that blackberries may have nutrients that could do so, but I suspect that they would be overpowered by the fruits' fiber, with potentially uncomfortable results.Read more ›
