You may be buying produce that’s fresh, organic and grown locally. You may be reading labels to avoid allergens and additives, sodium and fats. But if you want to take the next step in selecting the very best foods for wellbeing and everyday vitality, check out An A-Z Guide to Healing Foods, A Shopper's Reference (Conari Press). Author Elise Marie Collins, a nutrition expert, yoga instructor and active mom, has put together a grocery list of healing foods, shown alphabetically with vitamin and mineral content and nutritional attributes that soothe what ails you. There’s even a cross-reference of foods to address a variety of common medical conditions, from Attention Deficit Disorder and acne to urinary tract infections and varicose veins.
