Description

In recent years our scientific knowledge of the health-enhancing properties of a wide range of nutritious ingredients has increased ten-fold, and with the stresses and demands of daily living, it has perhaps never been more important to take responsibility for the food we consume. Our dietary choices can impact on our energy levels, moods, libido, mental performance and overall well-being. Certain ingredients are now considered to be able to help prevent heart and bone disease, promote brain activity and eye health, reduce cholesterol levels, increase metabolism and protect against cell damage. This comprehensive health food encyclopedia is packed with easy-to-follow information on sourcing, preparing, cooking and storing superfoods, and using them in the kitchen. A visual directory presents over 100 of the top superfoods - ranging from the humble carrot and apple to the more exotic goji berry and edamame bean - and gives information on their health-promoting nutrients and properties, including iron, mineral, calcium, vitamin and flavonoid content. A mouth-watering selection of 150 recipes features at least one of the superfoods in each: try home-made granola, delicious baked apricot compote, risotto, mackerel in oatmeal, hemp and nut roast, baked orange dessert and berry smoothies. Every recipe is shown in clear and colourful step-by-step photographs to ensure success, and a nutritional breakdown is given for easy dietary planning.
