Acerca de


Organized in a convenient A to Z format, The Healing Foods features food "cures" for more than 30 medical conditions, plans for lowering cholesterol and triglycerides, and seven-day meal plans for fighting various conditions.


Sometimes nutrition just seems too complicated for the average person to learn, like thinking you'll take up calculus when you can barely figure a 15-percent tip (that's why so many of us eat at fast-food outlets--no math required). Daily press reports on the latest amazing discoveries or conflicting research results only further our determination to take up better nutrition--next year. But long-time collaborators Patricia Hausman and Judith Benn Hurley make healthful eating easy. The Healing Foods is laid out in their standard A-Z format with headings for recommended foodstuffs ("Apples," "Apricots," "Artichokes") and common ailments that can be improved by eating right ("Cholesterol," "Colds," "Constipation").

The information is presented in plain language, and the short, informative chapters (usually two to four pages) are easily digestible. The healing foods themselves are items common to any grocery store. Each food chapter gives a brief explanation of the food's intrinsic value, suggestions on purchasing the best produce, tips for storage, and an "Accent on Enjoyment" section that offers ideas for dressing up plain fruits and vegetables to be more appetizing. The recipes that conclude each of these chapters are flavorful and simple to prepare (Sautéed Chicken with Prunes and Shallot, Cauliflower with Mustard Sauce and Dill). Most recipes serve four and take under half an hour to prepare. Even the dietary changes suggested in the chapters on conquering specific health problems are easily accommodated (they are not lifestyle changes, only menu ideas) by the average person. This is not nutritional calculus; it's basic math accessible to everyone. --Brenda Pittsley
