Book Description

May 6 2003

We all know how important it is to eat a healthy diet that includes plenty of vitamins and minerals. But most of us know very little about an important group of substances known as phytochemicals. These are the compounds in plants that are thought to give them their colour, flavour and even aroma-but the latest research indicates they are capable of much, much more when integrated into our everyday diets. When consumed correctly, phytochemicals may reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis and many other common yet serious ailments.

Rosie Schwartz, one of Canada's best-known nutritionists and a registered dietitian, first explains the nutritional science behind phytochemicals, then goes on to discuss how we can best incorporate "phyto foods"into our daily diet. She discusses each kind of phyto food separately-fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, soy, beverages, and herbs, spices and oils-and, with the aid of more than 100 healthful and delicious recipes, shows how to maximize the benefits of phytochemicals in the foods we eat. She also sorts through the benefits and risks of the exploding market of phytochemical supplements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the cookbook library June 27 2008
This book is packed with great info about food and nutritional content but goes the extra mile by providing recipes for how to use the foods in really good meals. Great variety and very inspiring, despite the lack of images.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, informative. Must buy! Nov. 11 2005
By L. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
I checked this book out from my local library and was glued to it for the full three weeks. I copied down many of the recipes and use them often. Now I realize that I must own a copy! The information in this book is too important to my family; we need it as a reference tool. I have been studying nutrition and health for years but learned more from this book than anywhere else.
