"I loved everything about this book. It was very informative without being overly technical. I appreciated the history of fruits/vegetables and the time the author took to gather all of this data. Excellent class!"
- ML, RD, Plainfield, IL

"This program filled in the gaps in my knowledge about the phyto/bio nutrients that are in the press daily. I enjoyed the historical perspective for our changing food sources. The information was well organized and succinct. I have been talking about the information to my coworkers...I felt energized with the new information I have learned!"
- BV, RD, Gurnee, IL

"Wow...I learned so, so much from this book! All the material is useable and shareable with my patients. I love that I can get CEU's for reading a great book! I continue to use this book as a reference at least weekly...and suspect it will be one of my favorite "go to" books for months to come."
- Melinda Lund, RD, Billings, MO

"The book was very relevant to my daily life. Even with my background as a dietitian, I had limited knowledge about how to pick the most nutritious produce. I also did not know how to prepare that produce once it was purchased. I have many new kinds of vegetables in my refrigerator now and am having great success in the kitchen."
- Katherine Arend, RD, South Bend, IN

"The book was great. I learned so much from it and plan to use examples in my work and in my personal life. Totally enjoyed this learning experience!"
- Diane Blake, RD, Little River, SC
