-Simple explanations of the role of oils, sugars, grains, meats, fruits, vegetables, and dairy foods in a healthy diet that will help you save money on food while improving your overall nutrition.
-Charts and boxes that tell you at a quick glance everything from how much fat is in your cheese to how much meat is required by law in a can of chicken soup.
-Over 100 simple and fast recipes that make it easy for you to plan delicious, nutritious, and safe meals.
It is still possible to find food that’s good for you. By changing the way you approach every item in a grocery store, The Whole Food Bible will show you how.
