When I delved into it, I was shocked. There's a whole world of healthy eating that I was oblivious to. I've spent much of my life focusing on healthy eating, preferring nutrition from food over supplements, and eating organic whenever possible. But little did I know, how little I knew!
I don't expect I will ever purchase another of those perfect looking tomatoes in the grocery stores. I don't care if they are organic. They have been engineered to look perfect, and the nutrition has been engineered out of them at the same time.
Flavor is another issue. Real tomatoes are bursting with flavor, and once you taste one, I doubt you will want a grocery store tomato again.
Tomatoes are only one example. The book is loaded with ways to get back to real food.
I've read many books on nutrition. I would rate this book as number one. Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon Dr. Mary Enig just moved to number two.

As a self-confessed "fruit addict", I'm very particular when selecting fruit at farmer's markets and grocery stores. This book goes a long way in explaining why many fruits and vegetables "just don't taste the way they used to." At the end of each chapter there is a list of the best varieties of each fruit and vegetable to buy, both at the grocery store and farmer's market.
This was my first Kindle book purchase. I was very pleased with the ease and speed of downloading it.
