This is a reprint of a book about food preparation and nutrition first published in 1893. It is reprinted without the illustrations that were included in the original edition. From the Introduction: “No one thing over which we have control exerts so marked an influence upon our physical prosperity as the food we eat; and it is no exaggeration to say that well-selected and scientifically prepared food renders the partaker whose digestion permits of its being well assimilated, superior to his fellow-mortals in those qualities which will enable him to cope most successfully with life's difficulties, and to fulfill the purpose of existence in the best and truest manner. The brain and other organs of the body are affected by the quality of the blood which nourishes them, and since the blood is made of the food eaten, it follows that the use of poor food will result in poor blood, poor muscles, poor brains, and poor bodies, incapable of first-class work in any capacity.” Included in the book is a list of breakfast and dinner menus for every day of the year (52 weeks of listings of bill-of-fare for healthy meals), which is handy information to have available to assist with planning and shopping.
