This isn't a book you can just sit down and read before bed or while on the bus. For me, it's certainly more useful (and fun) as a sort of encyclopedia. I've been going through the index and picking something and then finding out how to fix it. For example, I recently had a bout of heartburn and no tums. I looked up and saw that apples and cranberries can help. Also, since I'm pregnant now I know I need more protein so I looked up protein in the index to find a few more options and recipes rathe ...more

101 Foods that could save your life
After doing research on The American Diet “101 Foods that could save your life” by David Grotto, RD, LDN is a book that had some grand idea of eating healthy. This book tells what one should include in their diet and all the reasons why! If one is interested in health, food, eating, & reading about a combination of those things, this is a good book. It can be a reference book, but it is informative and helpful when one is conscious about what to eat. One of

I've read a slue of books in this vein over the years> all informative in nature and helpful to a degree (add those buddy guys later). This little gem, is just that: little. It's a quick fun treat with little historical and pop trivia and as an added bonus, for each 101 it gives you storage and longevity tips so as to gain the most sustenance and healing out of the aforementioned 101- CUTE!
It's hard to know if I'm being serious, even for me- CUTE!

I dislike self-help books in general but this one is quite a balanced reference book, it's just a pity for the lack of illustrations (even if they came at an additional price).
As for the recipes I find them in general (not here in particular) unreadable, however I realized the need to answer some readers to a "so what then?" after a food's virtues have been exposed.
Good job Mr. Author. Why don't they start a TV series out of this book, there are so many cheap cooking reality shows around!

This books is highly informative and much needed in a time when fad diets tell you to "eat this" or "eat that". This book tells you what you should be including in your diet and all the reasons why! It is inspiring me to make some changes to my regular grocery list.

if you're interested in health, food, eating, & reading about one or a combination of those things this is a good book. it is more of a reference book but it is informative and helpful as i try to be more conscious about what i eat. i think i'm going to buy this one.

I pull this book out as a reference all the time. My kids are used to me at the dinner table referring to this book and why it's so important that I made such and such. I can usually get a couple of more bites out of my picky eaters :)

Nothing really new here. The entries are short and concise but perhaps leaving out information I find help as if a vegetable loses nutrition through cooking or storage. Could have included that info and left out the boring recipes.

One of the best and well written books I have read regarding individual foods their nutrient components, health benefits and folklore of the food! Insightful to the average person and informative to any foodie!!!

It's a really nifty book with a lot of cool facts about food and why it's beneficial to you. I have had this book for several years and I still refer to it. It also has some pretty good recipes for foods that we don't commonly eat.

extremely thorough book--for each food gives back story/history, reasons, home remedies, specific purposes and tips on preparing/selecting/storing.
