GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - As Wellness expert for WOTV, I like to consider myself somewhat knowledgeable in the area of nutrition. I also would say that I consider myself to be a pretty healthy eater and cook for my family.
I read Food Over Medicine by Pam Popper and did a second sweep of my kitchen.
If you are not well or if you are even remotely interested in caring for your own health, I recommend you read this book. I loved it and read it cover to cover. The book itself is structured as a conversation between Pam Popper, a naturopath and internationally recognized expert on nutrition, medicine and health, and Glen Merzer, an author and vegan. The style of writing and content make this book an easy read.
Not only is it full of useful information about most modern disease and it prevention/cure, but there is also a great recipe section with color photos (which I love). I was able to try several of the recipes. The North African chickpeas as well as the tofu enchilada recipes were favorites with my family.
The book really promotes the power we have over our health and the infinite potential of proper nutrition. While I did not necessarily agree with every statement in this book, I found it to be a worthy read and will pass it on to a friend or two.
