(Book) The World’s Healthiest Foods, Essential Guide for the Healthiest Way of Eating by George Mateljan

This book is packed with information about many different foods. The layout is great and the information given is very helpful to leading a healthy lifestyle. However, I do have two issues with the book.

First, there are a lot of healthy foods missing. The book is great if you are cooking on a budget, but if you want information on the benefits of more expensive fare, you won’t find it here. My personal trainer informed me that the book is written from a “bang for your buck” perspective, but it would have been nice for there to be a few more choices for those that don’t mind spending a little more.

Second, the book gives recommended recipes for the foods listed. However, after reading through the book you will soon realize that there are really only a few recipes and they are just used over and over with the different foods. One thing that makes people go off of their diet is that they get bored with their menu choices. I wish the author had researched different recipes for each item and let the reader try to mix and match on their own.

Overall, this book has a lot of cook information. If you are on a budget and have your own cookbooks or don’t mind experimenting on your own, then you’ll find this book very helpful. A great companion blog to this book is this Health Blog called HealthyFellow.com. The information here is very much up-to-date (I’m forgiving him for shattering my chocolate is healthy dreams *laugh*) and relevant to what’s going on right now… check it out!
