Naked Nutrition: Whole Foods Revealed
Whole Foods isn’t just the name of a high-end grocer; it is a movement. People all over are trying to eat better, healthier foods. This cookbook takes a new, fresh look at a plant-based way of eating. Like most good ideas, this particular recipe for healthy eating was born of necessity. Authors Amy Choate and Annie Miller both suffered severe health problems they were able to alleviate by following this plan. Their eating philosophy is expressed basically by a statement from Michael Pollan’s Food Rules which says “If it is a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don’t.” The book contains plenty of introductory material including personal stories of the authors, how the method was born, pantry suggestions, food substitutions, and kitchen equipment. Twelve sections follow including Beverages, Breads, Condiments & Sauces, Main Dishes, Desserts, and Home Remedy Ideas.
The recipes are beautifully presented with gorgeous color photographs by Marilyn Choate, prep time, ingredients list, an introductory paragraph, and well-written instructions. A glossary and list of resources finishes things off. This well-designed book chock full of information will help people to set up their kitchens, stock their pantries, and successfully follow this process.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
