Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we've been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations.
Eating on the Wild Side reveals the solution -- choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but that also please the modern palate. Jo Robinson explains that many of these newly identified varieties can be found in supermarkets and farmer's market, and introduces simple, scientifically proven methods of preparation that enhance their flavor and nutrition. Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, Eating on the Wild Side will forever change the way we think about food.

Great read. You will learn something on every page.
I've been a Registered Dietitan/Nutritionist for over 30 years, and while knowing that a variety of colorful fruits and veggies is recommended for general wellness, I had no idea how nutritious cauliflower is. I expected it to have some nutrition, but the high level of phytonutrients surprised me.
Easy to read and very informative, for every vegetable, it lists the healthiest varieties to grow or buy. For every common fruit, the best kinds and exactly why.
I recommend this book for everyone who gardens, and for everyone responsible for food shopping. It’s that good.

I would have like coverage of more fruits and veg (mushrooms for example).
