9780440214403: The Healing Foods: The Ultimate Authority on the Curative Power of Nutrition

The Knopf Canada Book of Healing Foods is a guide for everyday living, and the fastest way to understand how the foods you eat can help to heal, and help you remain healthy.

There's a healing food for almost every common health problem - from colds, stress, insomnia and high blood pressure to more complicated illnesses - and most are as close as your local grocer. Healing Foods is an indispensable guide to choosing the best foods for an active life - a bright and friendly market of knowledge that makes the time you spend at the dinner table an investment in spirited living.

In beautiful colour, it also highlights health-giving foods and their nutritional and medicinal benefits. Information on buying, storing and preparing healing foods is clearly listed, and each item - from pineapples and chilies to almonds and apricots - is linked to delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes from around the world.

A questionnaire helps you assess your diet and general health to pinpoint problem areas, while a section on ailments and treatments makes it easy to address individual concerns. Fully indexed, illustrated throughout in full colour, Healing Foods is a goldmine of information and recipes to treasure.

Review:

Sometimes nutrition just seems too complicated for the average person to learn, like thinking you'll take up calculus when you can barely figure a 15-percent tip (that's why so many of us eat at fast-food outlets--no math required). Daily press reports on the latest amazing discoveries or conflicting research results only further our determination to take up better nutrition--next year. But long-time collaborators Patricia Hausman and Judith Benn Hurley make healthful eating easy. The Healing Foods is laid out in their standard A-Z format with headings for recommended foodstuffs ("Apples," "Apricots," "Artichokes") and common ailments that can be improved by eating right ("Cholesterol," "Colds," "Constipation").

The information is presented in plain language, and the short, informative chapters (usually two to four pages) are easily digestible. The healing foods themselves are items common to any grocery store. Each food chapter gives a brief explanation of the food's intrinsic value, suggestions on purchasing the best produce, tips for storage, and an "Accent on Enjoyment" section that offers ideas for dressing up plain fruits and vegetables to be more appetizing. The recipes that conclude each of these chapters are flavorful and simple to prepare (Sautéed Chicken with Prunes and Shallot, Cauliflower with Mustard Sauce and Dill). Most recipes serve four and take under half an hour to prepare. Even the dietary changes suggested in the chapters on conquering specific health problems are easily accommodated (they are not lifestyle changes, only menu ideas) by the average person. This is not nutritional calculus; it's basic math accessible to everyone. --Brenda Pittsley
