Reviews - What do customers think about The Healing Kitchen: From Tea Tin to Fruit Basket, Breadbox to Veggie Bin-How to Unlock the Power of Foods That Heal?

Easy to swallow nutritional info and tasty recipes.  Aug 10, 2006
I came across this book at my library and checked it out on a whim. After wearing out my renewals and having to bring the book back I hopped on this site and ordered it. This one I need to own!

If you are trying to incorporate healthier foods into your diet or just bone up on what's good for what than this is a great book. Its layout is very friendly. The author breaks her chapters down into the areas you keep your food; ie "The Tea Tin", "The Honey Jar", "The Cookie Jar", "The Fruit Basket", "The Breadbox", "The Vegetable Bin" and so on. (Like the title suggests.)
Each chapter gives basic buying and storing info, pertinent health info, a highlighted section of "Best For Helping You: . . ." that lists its health benefits such as "Prevent heart disease", and "Strengthen bone" etc.

The recipes that I've tried are interesting, easy and tasty. (I love the barley bread!) They aren't complicated and you don't need to go to the ends of the earth to find some odd rare thing that the recipe can't be made without.

I love veggies but have a tendency to get bored with them and need reminders of yummy combinations or spices that I've forgotten about. This book pulls me out of that tunnel vision that there's one way to make something and when I'm bored with that then I just don't eat that something anymore for a while.

The recipes also give a per serving breakdown on calories, carbs, fat, saturated fat, dietary fiber, cholesterol and sodium. Handy info that.

I would highly recommend this book to a wide variety of people. If you're a beginner on the "eating healthier" path then this book's Basics will be very helpful without lecturing you or making you feel stupid for not knowing this already.

If you do know a lot of this nutrition stuff already, I'd bet you'd still like this book for how it compartmentalizes everything into easy-to-referece bits. You would certainly want your less nutritionally-advanced friends to have a copy for themselves because you love them and want them to live longer, healthier lives.
