From Publishers Weekly
Prolific health writer Gary Null (7 Steps to Perfect Health, The Joy of Juicing, Gary Null's Power Aging) offers 301 recipes that revolve around 15 "power foods," chosen for their health benefits and versatility: blueberries, onions, shiitake mushrooms, almonds, oranges, bananas, garlic, ginger, legumes, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, leafy greens, soy and whole grains. The dishes run the gamut, though beverages such as the fruit-laden Revitalizer Juice and the Cholesterol Buster, packed with 10 stalks of celery, account for almost a third of the book. Many of the dishes, especially the beverages, call for vitamin and mineral supplements and virtually all of the desserts are sweetened with agave, which could prove frustrating for those who aren't located near a well-stocked health food store. Vegetarians and vegans will find much to like about the book, which is completely devoid of dairy, meat and wheat-based ingredients. Even those who aren't on a strict diet will find dishes like Cambodian Soba Peanut Noodles and Parsnip Black Bean Soup worthwhile.

Some of the "ingredients" are made from separate recipes. Alternatives are not given.
And the biggest problem with the book is that there is no index.
In general, it is not a book for beginner cooks. When you know foods well, the book provides ideas more
than recipes that make great dishes. I find myself changing all the recipes to suit myself, but I've come up
with some interesting dishes, and I always appreciate that. For me, a cookbook that gets me cooking and
eating better is worth the money spent on it.
Excellent copy of this book, good price, very fast shipping, excellent seller. Highly recommended!
