In SuperFoods you will find information on how to lower cholesterol by eating apples, why figs can help prevent cancer and how members of the squash family can help to keep your lungs healthy.
Each Super Food is featured on its own page (sometimes two) and is shown in full-color pictures.
This cookbook is divided into three main sections:
Protect Your Health
Some of the food featured include blueberries, mangoes, melon, kiwifruit, asparagus, onions, sweet potatoes and celery. Nuts, seeds, dairy, eggs, meat, fish, poultry, herbs, spices and miscellaneous items like chocolate, tea and coffee are discussed in detail.
Each recipe features an illness the foods help to cure. Like the Pumpkin soup helps with digestive, respiratory and skin issues. An Avocado, walnut and pear salad can help with fatigue.
A few examples of the delicious recipes include:
Banana and Almond Muffins
Green Tea Bread
Spicy Winter Bread Pudding
Red Plums with Brandy
Tagliatella with Artichokes
"It is no longer possible to doubt that there is a direct link between diet and cancer." ~ pg. 264
In the last section, menus are given for various health conditions. You can find information regarding: cancer, circulatory problems, digestive problems, stress, fatigue, joint problems, respiratory problems, skin problems, urinary problems and weight control. This book also has some fun ideas, like reading the "Ten Commandments for the Overweight" gives you permission not to eat everything on your plate (see page 333). A good page to photocopy for relatives who insist on feeding you seconds, thirds, etc.
The first section on the specific foods is an educational and fun read. Seeing all the delicious foods in full-color pictures makes you hungry for something healthy. The recipes are uncomplicated and this book is perfect for anyone who loves to cook or wants to make excellent food choices from any menu.
