This would be an excellent book to have as a reference. Sections are divided into vegetables, fruits, proteins, whole grains, fats and oils, beverages, and seasonings (or spices).

At the beginning of each section is a list (along with the page number) of each food discussed in this section. There is also a 2-3 page essay describing the item, i.e protein and why it's important.

This is a really cool reference book -- I'm always personally pretty interested in what makes what happen with food. What do certain foods give our bodies? What vitamins are useful for what? One other cool feature of this book is that it gives information on a food's carbon footprint, or what makes it a good choice for the planet (or not). Cool book to have on hand.

Well-organized and diverse information on what we eat and how we should be eating it. Found myself wanting to research further on the ingredients and meals to make with them. Additionally, I learned a few things about the global impact of producing familiar plants.

Common sense scientific description of individual foods one by one. Descriptions include nutrients, preparation (use), and environmental impact. Includes meats, eggs and dairy but tilts toward whole food veggies. I learned much. This is a great book with a good balance and no snark.
