Super Foods Every Day

Super Foods Every Day is a book of recipes and a miniature lessons on the nutrients in foods. The first few pages contain a basic and oversimplified view of certain foods that the author deems super foods. This view includes a picture of the food along with its corresponding health benefits and nutrients. There is also a two page overview on the smaller nutrients themselves. These first few pages are easy to follow and give a brief understanding about health foods. This is good for those who do not want to be bothered with any in-depth research.

This book includes 65 recipes that make use of the super foods listed from the beginning of the book. The book is very aesthetically appealing. Whereas most cookbooks have many recipes and few pictures, this book has a picture for every recipe. Furthermore every recipe has a before and after picture. On one page all the ingredients would be shown together, while below the picture are the written list of ingredients. On the opposite page is the completed dish along with the directions for creating it. Each recipe is also accompanied by a circle that explains the health benefit of the recipe.

There are many of these recipes that look and taste delicious. The combination of ingredients in some of the recipes is quite imaginative. However, as a vegan there were quite a few recipes that I could not try. I would even think that the beneficial ingredients might almost be cancelled out by those that were not vegan.

The book could be a good starting point for those who want to begin a healthier lifestyle.
