The Essential Guide To Healthy Healing Foods

Today I am doing book review for all of you on the book called "The Essential Guide To Healthy Healing Foods" by Victoria Shanta Retelny, R.D., L.D.N. with Jovanka JoAnn Milivojevic. This is a 380 page soft-cover book that is jammed packed with information that we all need to know if we want to eat healthy food!

Brief Book Synopsis: The Essential Guide To Healthy Healing Foods shows you how consuming fresh, whole foods keeps every cell in your body in optimal health. You learn how fiber-filled carbs, lean proteins, and healthy fats, along with other essential vitamins & minerals, work together to fuel your body. You also discover the healing properties of fresh fruits & veggies, beans, peas, whole grains, nuts, seeds & fish, and even aromatic herbs & spices. This is a comprehensive guide!

My Review: I received this large comprehensive book a few days and I had a hard time putting it down on the first day as it is just jammed packed with information. I love how everything is broken down into easy to read chapters and from start to finish...everything just flows nicely together. Chapter 1 starts out with a chapter called Food for Life and this chapter teaches you how nutrients work together for optimal health and how to get the most from the BIG THREE nutrients which is the perfect chapter to start the book out with. Sprinkled out throughout the book you will find some recipes that all incorporate the healthy ingredients/foods that we should all be cooking with and consuming. The book finishes up with a chapter called Foods to Fight Disease and since I suffer from a few chronic illnesses, I found this chapter extremely helpful to me.

The book is fabulously laid out...so starting with chapter 1 you learn about the basics and then each chapter builds upon that. A very easy read and it has tons of information all through the book. You will learn something on every page of this book!

Purchasing Information: The book retails for $19.95 and the ISBN: 978-1-61564-108-6. I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of this book and read it cover to cover a few times so that you don't miss anything! I know I am going to read it again myself!
