The World’s Healthiest Foods, 2nd Edition by George Mateljan – book review

The debate never ends, does it, about foods that are good for your body, others you should avoid and those which should never pass through your lips. I picked up this book, or should I say hefted it from the table, and was immediately impressed. I had read that this is the second edition of the original book and that it contained over 300 new recipes but the majority of the 1060 pages are devoted to educating readers on food. How to cook it is just part of the package.

Mateljan’s philosophy says to earn the label “World’s Healthiest Foods” it must measure up to these criterion. Whole foods: complete with all their natural endowment of nutrients. Nutrient-rich foods: research-demonstrated benefits such as preventing chronic disorders. Familiar foods: common, recognizable that most people know about. Readily available foods: nutritious foods found at the local market. Affordable foods: seasonal, purchased locally. Foods that taste good: vibrant, pleasing taste, enjoyable to eat.
