Food Cures
Treat Common Health Concerns, Look Younger & Live Longer

by Joy Bauer, MS, RD, CDN and Carol Svec

      Food Cures by Joy Bauer is a breath of fresh air among all the headlines focusing on food-as-the-enemy, based on rising rates on obesity in the U.S.. Ms Bauer is recognizable as the nutrition expert from The Today Show. Her new book explores how readers can utilize food to manage diabetes, treat arthritis, boost mood, end migraines, and drop pounds. Her style is sensible and thorough, offering grocery lists, exercise routines and supplements. The book’s formating makes it a handy desk reference for every home and many maladies. If you're looking for a non-fad approach to losing weight, this book provides excellent information on food and health, plus interesting recipes the author has culled from years of experience as a nutritionist.

Food Cures is peppered with FAQ'S that offer questions and answers about common myths associated with the topic. I especially liked the way she lays the groundwork for each topic with a four step program, which includes the basics, the ultimate grocery list, going above and beyond and meal plans. Don't let the heft of this book overwhelm you, it really is the ultimate soup-to-nuts way to enjoy food and be healthy. A welcome addition from a trusted authority and one with a wide following that includes high profile professionals, celebrities, and Olympic athletes.
