Does anyone have experience with the book Healing With Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford?

I just attended an intro to whole grains workshop at my local health food market and they read passages from the book and recommended it highly.

It sure sounded interesting. Anyone have and use it?

By the way, learning more about how to cook with bulgar, amaranth, quinoa and millet was fascinating...there were dishes made from each grain/seed and all were delicious...I'm excited to expand my horizons with new grains and vegetables...

I'm ready to get grow beyond the brown rice and lentils that I use so often.

Folks from another forum I'm involved with have highly recommended this book, so I ordered a used copy. Sounds as though it's one of those books to keep on hand for reference and consulting over the years...I'll report back if you'd like.

Anyone interested?

Well, I got the book and it's thick and full of interesting content. The recipes weren't too interesting to my particular dietary hot spots, and much of the information I was already familiar with.

I think this could be a good book as an introduction to Eastern philosophy of diet and nutrition, but for old hands who have been following the vegetarian/whole food path for a while, it's not revolutionary.

My favorite section dealt with grains such as quinoa and amaranth. The info was fascinating to read and the nutritional profile of some of these ancient grains is truly dazzling.

I would recommend this book to be purchased used as I did, and as a good all-around reference book for alternative/holistic eating. It's an interesting book, all in all, and I will be browsing its many pages from time to time, I'm sure.
