Never Eat What You Can't Pronounce (Meal Planner, Food Counter, Grocery List, Shopping for Healthy Food)

By Deanna M. Minich PhD

Transform Your Diet from Heart-Pounding to Heart-Healthy

#1 Bestseller in Diet Therapy, Diet & Nutrition

A personal nutritionist right in the palm of your hand, this guide will transform your grocery list and encourage healthy eating habits that will have you selecting the best foods for your body.

Here’s a tongue twister. Say cochineal extract, diacetyl, teriary butylhydroquinone, BHA, HFCS, and MSG. It's not just knowing how to pronounce what's in your food, it's knowing what it does and how it can affect you. The average American consumes about 150 pounds of food additives per year. With so many processed foods on the supermarket shelves, it can be hard to navigate the waters to an additive free diet.

Change the way you eat and shop.  A-Z Guide to Food Additives provides heart healthy tips while helping you avoid undesirable food additives. Also, get the rundown on which additives do no harm and may even be nutritious. Put this book in your purse or pocket and head down to your grocery store with a grocery list in one hand and your newfound knowledge in the other.

A-Z Guide to Food Additives delivers:

  • Essential nutrition advice
  • Hints on what to look for when reading those unreadable ingredient labels
  • Tips on buying fresh produce in order to avoid pesticides

Designed with you in mind. This little book will serve as an "additive translator" when navigating through the minefield of additives that may cause allergic reactions. Certain ingredients can contribute to headaches, fatigue, breathing difficulties and bloating. Included are safety ratings for 300 ingredients and reference charts for additives that may cause cancer or allergic reactions or that should be limited for sodium sensitive individuals.

If you enjoyed heart healthy reads such as The Obesity Code, Lose Weight Like Crazy, or How Not to Die, then you’ll love A-Z Guide to Food Additives.

Learn from Dr. Joseph Feuerstein, MD, and Chef Daniel Green about the 11 rich foods that can give your body health benefits, without using any CBD or hemp products.

The word “cannabinoid” can be jarring, but it doesn’t mean what you think it does. We have a whole system named after pot called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), composed of receptors and enzymes that help regulate a variety of our bodily functions. "Endocannabinoid" means cannabis-like substances that naturally occur inside us. The ECS is a chemical communication system that performs the vital function of achieving and maintaining homeostasis, or balance, within the body.  Homeostasis is your body's efforts to keep everything in the right zone. This includes our sleep cycle, mood, memory, appetite, pain sensations, and so much more. It tries to keep your internal environment stable and optimal no matter what is going on in the environment around you.

The perfect cookbook for skeptics. It is perfectly understandable to be wary about holistic foods and their healing properties. However, when used and prepared correctly these rich foods are full of natural healing remedies that can help you ease pain, sleep better, de-stress, and so much more. Jam-packed with healing ingredients, making easy and healthy dinner ideas has never been easier. Discover wonderful uses of turmeric, basil, rosemary, flax, oregano, cloves, cinnamon, cacao, and more.
