The author is a nutritionist and health care specialist by profession, and believes the secret to a healthy lifestyle is in the way we eat, so here, too, is all the nutritional information you need to get started - a "Checklist for Healthy Eating" that not only provides practical pointers for combining proteins and ensuring an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals, but a quick reference chart for selecting you foods wisely. The price is clipped on the jacket, and it has slight wear on the top edge.

The Savannah Cook Book, Colquitt, Harriet Ross; Nash, Ogden (Introduction)
14 Colquitt, Harriet Ross; Nash, Ogden (Introduction) The Savannah Cook Book
When this collection of old fashioned receipts from colonial kitchens was assembled, it was not meant to be a general cook book. Rather, this volume was produced after receiving so many requests for receipts of rice dishes, and shrimp and crab concoctions peculiar to the region. This book is filled with interesting recipes gleaned from southern cooks and housekeepers; the book is stiff, and feels as though it has rarely been open. No spots or writing inside or out. Includes an index. ; 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall
