Product Description: This is not your ordinary cookbook. But then again, superfoods are not your ordinary ingredients. From tiny chia seeds to nut-like sacha inchi, from goldenberries to goji berries, from maca powder to cacao . . .these are the most nutrient-dense foods on earth. And their remarkable powers to heal and energize, to promote radiant good health and high performance - both mental and physical - have been celebrated for thousands of years in ancient civilizations all around the world.
It is only recently, however, that superfoods have become superstars I the Western health food industry. The rising tide of chronic diseases - diabetes, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and obesity - as well as the increasingly common complaint of fatigue and depression, have lead many health professionals to rethink the modern American diet. Superfood Cuisine offers a revolutionary and dynamically effective answer.
Each crave-worthily recipe in this book is composed entirely of plant-based, whole foods and superfoods. Combined in this way, the ingredients deliver their fullest potential: amazing amounts of antioxidants, essential fatty acids (EFAs like omega-3), important minerals and vitamins, as well as beneficial phytochemicals (plant-based chemicals). The rewarding results are delicious dishes that make you feel as good as they taste; recipes that can boost energy, control unhealthy cravings, revitalize the body and fight off disease.
Professional recipe developer Julie Morris has put it all together in this exciting exploration of superfood fare, Provided are over 100 recipes, a vivid description of each superfood (including history, benefits, use and taste), and a convenient "pantry list" of what you need and where to find these special foods. The superfood experience awaits you.
