The Knopf Canada Book of Healing Foods is a guide for everyday living, and the fastest way to understand how the foods you eat can help to heal, and help you remain healthy.
There’s a healing food for almost every common health problem – from colds, stress, insomnia and high blood pressure to more complicated illnesses – and most are as close as your local grocer. Healing Foods is an indispensable guide to choosing the best foods for an active life – a bright and friendly market of knowledge that makes the time you spend at the dinner table an investment in spirited living.
In beautiful colour, it also highlights health-giving foods and their nutritional and medicinal benefits. Information on buying, storing and preparing healing foods is clearly listed, and each item – from pineapples and chilies to almonds and apricots – is linked to delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes from around the world.
A questionnaire helps you assess your diet and general health to pinpoint problem areas, while a section on ailments and treatments makes it easy to address individual concerns. Fully indexed, illustrated throughout in full colour, Healing Foods is a goldmine of information and recipes to treasure.
