With 1064 pages, 500 re-tested recipes and over 300 new recipes, “The World’s Healthiest Foods, 2nd Edition: The Force For Change To Health-Promoting Foods and New Nutrient-Rich Cooking,” is one hefty book – literally. Weighing in at over five pounds (heavier than my phone book), the encyclopedic volume is a comprehensive guide to healthy eating using nutritional foods, cooking techniques and “smart menus for every meal of the day,” written by George Mateljan, an expert on health-promoting foods and healthy cooking.
All of the recipes in the book cook foods without the use of heated oil by using vegetable or chicken broth or water – a technique developed by Mateljan called “healthy sauté.” When oil (extra virgin olive oil) appears in a recipe, it is added to foods such as vegetables, sauces and soups after they have been cooked, adding rich nutrients and complex flavor to the dish.
If you’ve made a resolution to eat healthier in the New Year, or if you wish to gain knowledge about health-promoting foods and nutrient –rich cooking, “The World’s Heathiest Foods,” will be of interest to you. But, no matter the motivation for embracing a healthy life-style, or where we seek guidance, it is good to remember that our doctors and health-care providers should always be consulted regarding individual health needs or concerns.
