"Rich Food Poor Food" focuses on micronutrients, vitamins and minerals and counsels readers on how to avoid "frankenfood" additives. The authors seek a better diet, not a perfect one, and thus present this shopping guide: the ultimate grocery purchasing system (GPS).

They divide the guide into the same sections found at a grocery store: dairy, meat, fish, produce, condiments, grains, baking items, snacks and beverages. Each chapter contains a brief introduction explaining what cautious consumers should either seek out or avoid within that particular category, then it provides two lists under the headings "Steer Here" (rich foods) and "Steer Clear." (poor foods). The colourful, easy-to-read lists name specific brands, many of which unfortunately remain unavailable in Canada. But the book's principles still apply. For example, farm-fresh raw milk from grass-fed cows may be the ideal dairy product but any grass-fed, hormone-free milk beats the conventional brands in micronutrient levels hands down.

The Caltons recommend quite a few organic foods but admit that some produce has little chance of containing pesticides (onion, avocado, sweet potato etc). All in all, even if you can't afford to do all your shopping at Whole Foods, this book can still aid in achieving a more nutrient-dense diet.
