Eat Your Vitamins – Your Guide to Using Natural Foods to Get What Your Body Needs
Author: Mascha Davis, MPH, RDN
Reviewer: Jeanette Perkins aka Beeba
The A-to-Z guide to essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, so you can ditch synthetic supplements and promote health naturally with nourishing foods.
Vitamins and supplements are big business and very expensive. A much better way to get what your body needs is through the foods we eat. This book can help you navigate the myriad of nutrients. At that point you can incorporate them into your diet while eliminating the need for supplements.
Eat Your Vitamins examines fifty vitamins, minerals and nutrients in the following ways:
- Role in the Body
- Side Effects, Warnings and Precautions
- How Much You Need
- Best Way to Consume
- Natural Food Sources
This book is more of a reference book than a cover-to-cover read. Think of it as an encyclopedia of nutrients. I wished there were more examples of foods containing each vitamin. And there was only one recipe per nutrient but this isn’t intended as a cookbook. If you are trying to steer away from processed food and incorporate more natural ways of ingesting vitamins, minerals and nutrients, Eat Your Vitamins is right up your alley.
