Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Pratt and Matthews follow their successful SuperFoods Rx by laying out a yearlong health program based on a diet incorporating the first book's 14 "best foods" plus additions like dark chocolate and kiwis, as well as lots of exercise, adequate sleep and other healthy habits. For each season, they describe proven benefits of foods in abundance then and provide recipes combining them; they also focus throughout on specific concerns like diabetes, portion control and stress. Readers may occasionally struggle with dietary jargon that isn't always well explained (e.g., "phytochemicals" and "cryptoxanthins"), and those new to the SuperFood way might be overwhelmed by the amount of certain foods they're supposed to eat (a cup or two of blueberries per day in summer; one-half to one cup of broccoli daily in autumn), but the advice is sensible and the authors make no incredible claims. The recipes, mostly simple, range from breakfast items to light entrees to desserts and show ways the book's recommendations can be put into practice. Pratt and Matthews's system is basically the age-old one of restraint: eat fresh food in moderation and exercise. (On sale Dec. 27)

As a Superfoods fan, I was thrilled that Stephen Pratt wrote another book. After reading his first book, I incorporated a lot of the Superfoods into my diet, and was fascinated to read about the new additions such as pomegranate, honey, dark chocolate, kiwi, avocado, olive oil, garlic and onions- spices like cumin and tumeric, cinnamon.

In a creative approach, he dicusses food combinations according to how they can best be enjoyed in each season of the year. January is a great time of year to read the book, since he starts of with winter recommendations. I was happy to run fix myself a cup of hot cup of cocoa with cinnamon as I settled down to enjoy the book.

The recipes seem simpler than in the first Superfoods book. I tried the Mango Yogurt Cream Sauce, and it was the bomb. As some would say, it will make your tongue jump up and slap your brains out. It was supposed to be a dressing for fruit but it was so good I ate it as a soup. The Orange Poppyseed Dressing is great for a spinach, kiwi, avocado salad. and Cilantro Yogurt Topping for turkey. I tried the recipe for Acorn Squash w/ pineapple, which was a nice change from brown sugar. Oh, one suggestion for kale was "Crispy Kale," - just put some on a cookie sheet, sprinkle it with cumin and crisp it in the oven. Not bad!

"HealthStyle" hits heavy on the importance of exercise, which just makes me squirm. You just have to do it, plain and simple. I was also cringing as he explained about the importance of sleep, since I like to stay up until 1:00 watching MASH on the Hallmark Channel and then get up at six the next morning. I guess I should get DVR. He's right about all this of course, so you're better of to follow his other advice which is to make peace in your life.

Format: Paperback
Steven Pratt and Kathy Matthews have come up with a marvelous way for you to improve your health, and change your life. Rather than (like most diet books) telling you to give anything up, they encourage you to "add" things to your diet which will make a major difference in how you look and feel over the long haul. Most diet books insist you cut out "this", or cut out "that", or at least minimize the food to some small dime-sized portion. Pratt and Matthews, on the other hand, believe that it is what you are "not" eating that is holding you back from achieving your optimum health, and so their books are focused on getting you to add those foods to your diet. Their first book (SuperFoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life) is actually the one you should read first. It is organized in an extremely logical way, and leads the reader gently yet authoritatively into the concept of adding only 14 foods, making a huge difference in your health. Their second book (SuperFoods Healthstyle) adds an additional 10 foods to the mix (for a total of 24), yet the book lacks some of the instant readability and understandability of the first book. My honest recommendation is that you start with the first book (SuperFoods Rx), whether you buy it or just borrow it from the library. Then, when you've read the basics in a clear and understandable way, buy this second book (SuperFoods HealthStyle) which includes virtually all the information from the first book, also includes a great amount of additional information on exercise and sleep and other health practices, but is not quite formatted in as clear a way as SuperFoods Rx.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
The Good: A very enjoyable read, easy and quick to get through and full of good, practical advice that's easy to apply in the real world. Pratt's enthusiasm for whole, healthy food is contagious, and most of the nutritional rundowns made me hungry (anyone who can make me hungry for avocado has really got skills). The recipes, for the most part, sound delicious and easy to prepare. The studies cited and the bibliography makes for some impressive statistics, if some are a bit "spun" for shock value (yes, people may expend as little 300 calories/day through activities, but for most that's on top of the basic 800 calories/day required to support normal body functions such as breathing).

The Not So Good: The non-nutritional advice (exercise, avoid stress, get plenty of sleep) is solid, yet simplistic. It is not much more in-depth than you'd find in any health magazine and, to me, just felt like filler. It's not BAD advice by any means, it's just old news to anyone who has ever gotten healthy advice before.

For me, I would have liked to see more nutritional detail, such as how different storage and preparation methods can affect the nutritional content and absorption for the various Superfoods. It was touched on several times, but not fleshed out in most others. For instance, he mentions that canned beans have a lot of sodium, but that a lot of it can be removed by rinsing in cold water. How much? How close does that bring canned beans to the level of dried beans? If I am watching my sodium (as Dr. Pratt recommends strongly), how much of this Superfood can I safely consume?

Another instance: garlic. He compares the nutritional content of fresh garlic vs. garlic powder, but never mentions the pre-chopped garlic in jars that many people prefer.
