Karen Cicero is the nutrition director of Child Magazine. She lives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Colleen Pierre, M.S., R.D., is a nutritionist and syndicated columnist. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland.From Publishers Weekly:
Nutrition writers Cicero and Pierre offer an encyclopedic look at 117 foods they say can help stave off cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and a dozen other health problems increasingly common in our fast-food nation. The authors arrange the foods alphabetically, mixing herbs, fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and dairy, and for each entry they provide a simple synopsis of health benefits, useful sidebars on selection and storage, and a suggested recipe. Foodies may be disappointed with the authors’ reliance on frozen and prepared foods: the Ginger Butternut Soup recipe calls for frozen butternut squash purée, and the Stressful-Day Soy Stir-fry uses bottled teriyaki marinade. However, if time-strapped cooks don’t mind some pre-made ingredients or the punchy prose ( "Get Hooked on It," the authors say of fish; they also describe corn as "A Bite for Sore Eyes"), this volume presents a wealth of easily digestible knowledge for healthful eating.
