“Eat Smart Stay Well” is a great book to use as a reference tool for food nutrition awareness. I have found that the manner in which the book is laid out provides the reader with a means to easily access information about a particular fruit, vegetable, nut or plant, with pertinent information relating to each. Not only do I find the information on the benefits of each for optimum health informative, but some of the known uses shared in the book will be beneficial for food preparation.

I received this book as a giveaway on Goodreads and I'm very surprised how useful I'm finding this resource. I really love the beginning of the book where it discuss health problems and linked it to the appropriate power food. The picture really help for quick reference. This is a fabulous reference book for people who are interested in improving their over all health through healthy eating.
