Many people believe they must invest a lot of money in fitness clubs, exercise equipment, or vitamins to be healthy. Not so, according to authors Raymond and Dorothy Moore. All you need to live healthfully is knowledge of what is good for you and discipline in diet and exercise.

Homemade Health has been evaluated and approved by a professional advisory group of 18 doctors and dentists and covers important health topics from a Christian perspective. These include the four food groups, rest and relaxation, raising healthy children, and pregnancy nutrition. Raymond Moore is a well-known developmental psychologist and re searcher whose work has appeared in numerous academic journals worldwide. His wife, Dorothy, is a gifted reading specialist and longtime homemaker.

In an easy-to-read format, the Moores answer important questions such as: How do you cook food to best maintain minerals, vitamins, and flavor? What's so terrible about sugar? Should cholesterol be totally avoided? What are the effects of eating too much or not enough protein? Can you get enough calcium without drinking milk? Is it healthier to be a vegetarian? Are vitamin supplements a good way to ensure you're getting what you need?

There are also inspiring personal stories, informational charts, and a topical index. The principles are easy to apply at home, require no health clubs, expensive dieting, or special equipment. They are built on common sense, biblical principles, proven nutritional research, and experience.
