Sudhir Ahluwalia, author of this book has a vast experience when it comes to herbs, nutrition and wellness. Having worked as an IFS officer, he has brought out his vast knowledge to the benefit of his readers through his books. I have read few of his books in the past which was meticulously compiled after referring various sources coupled with his own knowledge and style of presentation. When I saw this book, I went for it immediately.
The contents were impressive as usual. It takes you deep into the world of nutrition serving as a perfect guide for your good health. All you need to do is to select the chapters of your choice(since the information is real vast), read it carefully and grasp the contents before implementing/inculcating it into your daily routine. Of course, you can always refer to the book, as and when you have a query on the content.
Building a customized diet from the most popular organic fruits, vegetables and cereals is like a breeze. Tables were used wherever it was necessary. This book is divided into two parts with 7 chapters each.
The first part discusses in detail about plant based food, good proteins, carbohydrate, fats, minerals, carotenoids, phytochemicals, flavonoids, omega 3, probiotics etc., Then comes a detailed chapter on personalized nutrition coupled with good health food portfolio.
The second part discuss about Organic Food. The fist chapter in this part "Demystifying Organic Food Facts" would come as a real surprise for you all. I am not going to discuss about it here since it would be a spoiler. The comparison of Organic Vs Conventional food is an interesting read.The detailed discussion on Organic Banana, Apples, Oranges, Grapes, Strawberries in fruits and Potatoes, Tomato, Cucumber, Gherkins, Cabbage, Brassicas in vegetables shouldn't be missed.
What I liked the most is the way these information were presented. They were vast yet simplified to our understanding. The concept is intriguing. Since it is all about our wellness, it evokes instant interest as soon as you start reading it. There are no use of jargons. Content is crisp and up to the point.
This is one book that would appeal to both the categories - Foodies and Non-Foodies(when I say this, it is those who do not care much about their eating habits, not that they aren't interested in eating).
