This book was better than I expected. From the title, I would expect it to be another popular book that takes a simple theme and repeats it endlessly. Instead, I found a lot of densely packed substance in it. I was impressed that rather than being snake oil, it comprised solid information on our current understanding of how food is metabolized.

Artichoke
Avacatto
Beets
Berries
Brocclii sprouts
Brown Rice
Bulgur Wheat
Cabbage
Concord
