This book is a compilation of the research works of many scholarly, untiring research scientists, some working all their lives to trace healing values in human foods. The phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other unlimited nutrients available in the foods do help humankind to keep the diseases like high blood pressure, heart diseases, stroke, diabetes, cataract, arthritis, cancers and other non-communicable diseases at bay.It is a fact, humanbeings lag in nutritional awareness. Though, there is strong evidence that diet can reverse the course of several diseases like heart disease, cataract, diabetes and even cancers, still humanbeings continue with poor and unhealthy eating habits. The therapeutic values of plant foods, such as vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices and other foods like dairy products, fluids and meats are brought to light. The value of the important nutrients, may lead to the basis for nutritional education lacking at present. Hope, this book brings awareness and adds to the knowledge of children and students. Vegetables, herbs, fruits, food grains, nuts and beans, have always been essential to human body. They form the basis of daily diet, providing flavour, aroma, health benefits and protection against diseases and disorders.The body of the book consists of four chapters. Under the chapter foods, there are 11 sections covering important foods. Under foods, for each crop/food item, information on scientific name and common names, a brief introduction covering its origin and distribution, as we know it/uses, and nutritional value/functional value, are furnished. A good number of references and figures are mentioned at the end.The book is designed primarily for the common person and the students, to create awareness about the importance of nutrition in the diet.
