Unlike the many nutrition books prioritizing image and personal appearance, Eating the Rainbow instead takes readers on an enlightening journey into practical wellness. Using a visual, non-math approach and a good sense of humor, the authors share insights about food science, human psychology, and the use of real-life dietary strategies for optimizing nutritional wellness.

You'll learn to address not only the quantity and quality of the foods you eat, but also the underlying reasons for why you make those choices in the first place. You'll also learn practical strategies for dining and shopping in a wide variety of circumstances, and you can opt to take your education even further by reading the book's appendices on nutrients, dietary terminology, food journaling, and disordered eating and eating disorders.

Overall, Eating the Rainbow is a remarkable example of how two experienced educators can translate a wealth of formal scientific knowledge into an easily readable book written in a casual, conversational tone.
