This is a paperback book titled "The Healing Foods" by Patricia Hausman and Judith Benn Hurley, published by Dell Publishing in 1991. 480 pages.
Patricia Hausman and Judith Benn Hurley make healthful eating easy. The Healing Foods is laid out in their standard A-Z format with headings for recommended foodstuffs ("Apples," "Apricots," "Artichokes") and common ailments that can be improved by eating right ("Cholesterol," "Colds," "Constipation").
The information is presented in plain language, and the short, informative chapters (usually two to four pages) are easily digestible. The healing foods themselves are items common to any grocery store. Each food chapter gives a brief explanation of the food's intrinsic value, suggestions on purchasing the best produce, tips for storage, and an "Accent on Enjoyment" section that offers ideas for dressing up plain fruits and vegetables to be more appetizing. The recipes that conclude each of these chapters are flavorful and simple to prepare (Sautéed Chicken with Prunes and Shallot, Cauliflower with Mustard Sauce and Dill). Most recipes serve four and take under half an hour to prepare. Even the dietary changes suggested in the chapters on conquering specific health problems are easily accommodated (they are not lifestyle changes, only menu ideas) by the average person.
The book is in excellent condition. There is minor edge wear. Inside the pages are tight and clean with light tanning.
