When it comes to food, nature provides a wealth of delicious choices. But each one also supplies unique health benefits. From apples to yogurt, this comprehensive guide to the top 101 power foods from top nutritionist David Grotto proves that what tastes good can also be good for you - and tells you why. For example, did you know: a handful of tart cherries before bed can help you sleep better; hot peppers may fight skin cancer; grape juice may be as heart-healthy as red wine; and, honey can help wounds heal faster. In working with thousands of clients over many years and searching for the most nutritious and tasty foods, David Grotto made a simple but profound discovery: telling people what they couldn't eat was far less effective than telling them what they could. So began his list of power foods, rich in nutrients, loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants and important omega fats - and they're more familiar than you might expect. More than a reference book, "101 Foods That Could Save Your Life" will make a significant impact on your health by guiding you to gradually add these foods to your diet. Plus, each entry includes a history of the food's origin, therapeutic benefits along with scientific research, tips for use and preparation, and an appetizing recipe from a leading chef or nutritionist. So, get ready to awaken your tastebuds, lose excess weight, and feel the healing begin.
