What if someone could tell you what the healthiest foods to eat were, so that you’ll never have to pore over nutrition articles or read scores of health books to find out what you should be eating to be at your healthiest?
Well, wonder no more. Author Jonny Bowden has covered it for you in his book, The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth About What You Should Eat and Why. This guide doesn’t just include which foods contain the most nutrients, but it also gives recipes for how to prepare some of the more exotic list-makers like yucca. And if you’re ailing from achy joints or a runny nose, Bowden tells you which foods are best for combating your condition. The 150 Healthiest Foods also educates you on how much of each food you should eat so that you absorb the health benefits without going overboard.
The book covers a broad range of incredible edibles, including fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds, drinks, herbs, sweeteners, meat, poultry and fish. Some of the items on his list will likely feel obvious, like cherries, apples, carrots, beans and honey; but some items might surprise you, like eggs and their yolks, butter, macadamia nuts, coconut oil and even dark chocolate.
Bowden, Ph.D., M.A., C.N., C.N.S. is no stranger to health. He is a nationally known expert on weight loss and nutrition and is the author of the best-selling “Living The Low Carb Life: Choosing the Diet That’s Right for You from Atkins to Zone,” which was also the winner of the Consumer’s Choice Award for Best Nutrition Book of 2004.
The book can be purchased on Amazon.com for about $17. This encyclopedia-like read would make a perfect gift for your favorite health enthusiast this holiday season.
Happy reading and healthy eating!
