I was more impressed than I thought I would be. The author mostly advocates a vegan diet. She goes into details on the dangers of sugar, white flour, meat, dairy, fat, chemicals, & caffeine and is pretty compelling. The book has charts for cooking dry beans and grains, & a chart of alternative sweeteners that I found interesting.

However, I feel there are better resources out there.

I'm not a total health fanatic, but I do feel very strongly about taking care of my own health, as well as the health of my family. It's important to me to start teaching my child, even right now at his young age - how to take care of his body. I found this book to be a great resource.
