Food and Nutrition by Tara Koellhoffer

Food is the fuel our bodies need to grow, move, and stay alive. We all know that eating nutritious food is important, but how do we use this information and apply it to our daily lives? Food and Nutrition examines the latest findings in food science, from the new food pyramid guidelines for healthy eating to scientific efforts to make our favorite junk foods, such as French fries and chocolate, better for us.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
