Health Benefits and Nutrient Content of Foods

Benefits and Nutrition Information about the Foods Used in this Book

Of the foods included in many of the recipes and supplements I am recommending for the cookbook, nearly all of them fall under the list of World’s Healthiest Foods. Though I have not included every single ingredient, and added a few extra foods to this list, I hope you will be encouraged to see how beneficial these foods can be to your whole family in addition to your children with dietary limitations.

I have provided links if you would like more in depth information on each food.
The links will take you to the World’s Healthiest Foods website page regarding that food. You can also find information about some of these foods and supplements along with health benefits not included in the WHF site under the blog post Digestive and Alkaline Support Supplements.

Also, click on USDA to search any food and find the nutrient breakdown including amounts of starch, sucrose, and maltose. The USDA information is similar to that provided on the csidinfo website, which appears to be down until further notice.
