    This book is a Godsend to anyone who wants to eat good food that is healthy and tastes good. I had the priviledge of having Dave Grotto as a nutritionist during chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. He came to my home and went through all my cabinets to show me all the items that were 'bad' or 'good', then tagged them with stickers, so I wouldnt forget. Then he took me grocery shopping to show me all the great foods that are great tasting and also very healthy. So many foods we dont realize are right in front of us that we dont try!! He taught me how to read labels, not just by fat and carbs, but the ingredient contents, and explained how to make them. It was fun and educational. I am happy to say that one year after my last treatment, my last check up was wonderful, no signs of cancer!!!! Coinsedence or fact, that foods play a big part in your health? Probably both, but I am not giving up on all the advice that Dave gave me. Im feeling wonderful. Everything he told me in person, is also in his book. I take it shopping me all the time, and refer to it quite often. Buy the book!!! You WILL NOT regret it!!

    Wow - this is really an amazing book. So easy to read - so chock full of fun facts, history and information on some great great foods. I am a "cookbook junkie" and I must say, the majority of the recipes in this book are ones I would (and have started to) make on a regular basis. But more importantly, recipes I would share with friends who aren't as "into" cooking as I am. They are easy to make and unbelievably good for you!

    Thanks to the author for finally writing a healthy living / informative / cookbook / eating guidebook - that everyone who buys food for their family and friends can live by and use for years to come. My grocery shopping --- especially for grains, fruits and vegetables -- has completely changed and my husband and 3 kids are ecstatic with the food I now keep stocked in my house.

    This will be my hostess gift, relative birthday gift and "go-to" gift for a long time... Thanks!

    What makes this book unique is its easy to read, friendly format. Tired moms, who want to read but have limited time, will find it so refreshing to be able to start and finish on any one page! I love how it appeals to both the scientific and romantic side of food, with its hard facts and historical folk lore. I recommended it to my nutrition intern and she replied with, "I just started reading 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life. I'm sooooooo excited about this book! It's so original in its approach and I love that it's not some quick fix fad diet. I already emailed all my girlfriends about it." The recipes are super too!
