The same author has written a book called "101 Foods that can Save Your Life" and looking at the index and table on contents of that one, I see it's what I should have purchased.
This book only makes the most scanty passing references to cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. This book may have some good recipes in it: I need to try them. But overall the focus is for readers who are dealing with specific health conditions that are not the huge, cosmic, life=threatening ones.
It may be a decent family reference. I was disappointed and will probably donate my copy to the library at some point soon. My mission is to try to find the best and most helpful books for those with heart failure, diabetes, and cancer.
I tried 5 recipes from the book and most are now keepers. Raw Kale Salad with Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette, Chicken Thighs with Red Wine, Dried Plums, and Garlic, Quinoa Pilaf with Currant and Turmeric, and Christine's Baked Custard were my favorite.
There is information about the various conditions this book covers, plus recipes. I don’t feel that “101 optimal life foods” is an appropriate title, because there isn’t exactly one list of foods in here but rather, lists for each ailment.
I am always concerned when people push chocolate as a health food. Yes, chocolate I ma certain has amazing anti-oxidants but when we process it into the crap most people eat it in... truly, what is left? If people were eating small amounts of organic, fair trade, dark, raw cocoa chocolate there is probably much more nutritional value.
I have clients who sock away whole milk chocolate hershey bars thinking they are getting antioxidants. We need to be a bit more clear with information so people are better informed and not using the information in ways that are counter productive to their health.
