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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Superfoolds, well maybe but sort of and not sort of worth the money for it. Just like the other Super Foods, save your moneyPublished on March 10, 2013 by DEANE FINLEY
Book was exactly what we needed to read. The information was great. The food recommendations are usable. Some of the ideas are too time consuming.Published on January 3, 2013 by Mary Nan White
