Eating On the Wild Side

Eating on the Wild Side is a book about the nutritional value and history of fruits and vegetables. Its perfect for you if you feel somewhat insecure in the produce section at the grocery store . After reading this book I felt confident about how to choose the most nutritious produce, when to buy certain types, how to choose the most nutritious variety (ex. Granny Smith vs Gala), etc..

The author, Jo Robinson, includes information about the history of many different fruits and vegetables and how they have evolved. She explains how their evolution has affected their nutritional value, which is very interesting (and a little depressing). This book is also packed with information about how to store produce to best preserve its nutritional value. Overall, this book has a TON of information in it. I recommend buying a copy and highlighting/putting tabs in it to make sure you can reference the information in the future.
