"Everything in moderation."
This list includes some of my favorite books about learning about the basics of eating well. Several items by author Michael Pollan and also Robin Green's (an acupuncturist who specializes in pediatrics) new book, Heal Your Child. As my grandpa often says, "everything in moderation". Moderation is a basic nutritional concept in East Asian Medicine and, therefore, Integrative Medicine. These are some good, accessible resources for learning more about whole foods nutrition and nutrition basics from an integrative medicine perspective. You may hear the wisdom from your grandparents or great-grandparents echo-ing through these books.
Recommending reading about nutrition for health books can be found in our new Amazon aStore, under the "Nutrition" category. A few pennies of each purchase through the aStore go to support the Project's work.
If you want to support the Project directly, contribute via our website.
