This book is much much more than a anti-aging book. It is more like a super healthy you book! It features big and beautiful full color photos of the delicious foods that heal. Providing information about the what benefits each particular food provides. An excellent addition to the book would have been recipes for external skin care rather than just for the benefits of ingesting certain foods. If you like a particular food & are curious about it's health traits, you can easily look it up & find a good amount of information. Now remember, you aren't going to find info. about your favorite ice cream or candy bar! You will however find helpful info. about berries, fruits, veggies, nuts, dairy, meats, the sun etc. The main focus is what a particular food item does that is beneficial. The nutrients it contains, fiber, water, antioxidants. Whatever makes the particular food so good is the main focus of the food. If it has small amounts of Vitamin C, that probably isn't going to be mentioned. Loaded with Vit. E and or fiber? That will be mentioned.
It also features a decent sized recipe section at the back of the book so you can incorporate your new found knowledge into tasty meals, snacks, & smoothies! Yum!
We look forward to it's ease of use next time we are asked about a particular food item & are unsure of the answer. Now we can quickly find the information we need and pass it on. No more time consuming flipping through book after book.
