Eat Your Vitamins is the second book I read about vitamins and minerals after Mark Goldstein‘s book. I must say this is way better and cheaper than Goldstein’s. And this also has recipes in each chapter! Mascha Davis advocates eating our vitamins instead of taking them in other forms. That is why I chose to read this book cause I don’t like taking pills. If you are like me, you’ll enjoy this as well.
Eat Your Vitamins covers fifty essential vitamin and minerals. In the related chapters, it explains what they do in our bodies, how much we should consume, what happens if we eat them a lot or none at all. The chapters are easy to read and follow, and there are delicious recipes at the end of each vitamin or mineral.
After reading this book, I think I got enough information about this topic for now. But I know this is a neverending journey and I’ll be looking out for other books to read later. But for now, I know what I need to eat and updated my shopping list accordingly. (Now I believe spinach can save the world!) I recommend this for anyone who wants to learn more about nutrition and stop taking pills. Enjoy!
Eat Your Vitamins
Vitamins and minerals are the building blocks of good health. But the heavily processed foods that are so common in today’s modern diet are stripped of these nutrients, leaving many people nutrient deficient despite meeting (or exceeding) their daily calorie needs. The accepted solution is to take supplements created in a lab, but the dosage and interactions can be confusing, and supplements are loosely regulated and not always foolproof, especially since our bodies are designed to receive nutrients from natural, whole foods.
Eat Your Vitamins features fifty key vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients essential to your health. You will find clear definitions of each nutrient along with the role it plays in the body, how it is best consumed and absorbed, recommended daily doses, and so detailed lists of foods and natural sources that contain the vitamin along with a recipe for a nutrient-rich meal. Ditch the synthetic supplements and make the right choice about how to properly feed and fuel your body.
After more than 10 years of practising nutritional science and public health while living and working around the globe, I discovered what works, what doesn’t, and what it means to live a truly healthy life. I built a foundation of nutrition tools and techniques that have transformed my own health – and which I know will transform yours, too.
