The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones
The Whole Food Guide to Strong Bones is a guide by health educator, Annemarie Colbin, PhD, on how to keep your bones healthy and strong with the right balance of food and exercise.
The first and second section of her book entitled “Understanding your Bones” and “Caring for your Bones” are excellent. There you will learn a lot about: what your bones are made up of, Osteoporosis and what it does to your bones, calcium and other minerals/whole foods, exercises that keep your bone density mass healthy. In addition, she talks about factors that can reduce your bone density mass and bone structure, factors such as menopause and how to regain bone strength again. After reading those two sections, you will have a general understanding of bones and bone health and an insight into why strong bones are so important to our well-being.
In her third section, she introduces you to over 80 wholesome recipes that not only help your bones stay healthy, but are also scrumptious and high in nutrition. Recipes such as Curried Broccoli Rabe with Parmesan Cheese, Gratin of Root Vegetables, Salmon Fritatta with Fresh Dill, Avocado Cucumber Soup, Crispy Baked Small Fish and Maple Walnut Loaf are just a few examples of delicious food that you can expect to find in this book.
Overall, we sometimes underestimate how important bone strength is to our health. Most people won’t see the consequences of bad diets and lack of important vitamins and minerals until later on in life. This book gives you all the information you need to know to keep you and your family healthy and prevent bone loss.
