"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Under superfood vegetables, it lists Determination, Foresighted, Generosity, Heart, Intention, Nourish, Quest, United, Value, Experience (again under X), and Yearning. Interesting. It may not be everyone’s desire to find these things in it, but it fills an open slot in the alphabet, and anyone only interested in the fruit, vegetable, and legumes can easily skip by them. For the rest of us, it is a welcome reminder that super-nourishment includes not just the foods we put in, but the attitudes and ideals that come from within.
Also of interest to me is the appendix. It is titles Muscle Testing, but it is about some methods of communicating more effectively with your own body. Most of us can “hear” our body well enough on things like pain, discomfort, hunger and thirst (though if I’m busy enough, I admit that I often do not notice hunger or thirst – I tend to realize my productivity is slipping and only then realize I have not fueled or hydrated for too long). This system lets you ask more concrete yes or no questions of your body, and I certainly know many that are not included in the book.
The simple idea of actually stopping and asking your body questions is a fascinating one I first learned from Deepak Chopra. One thing he says is if you are trying to quit smoking, just start with awareness and actually ask your body if it really does want the cigarette. Often, we will realize that our body does not want it simply by shifting our awareness to what it is doing to our body. Maybe these system produce accurate body-answers, or maybe they work on our internalized ideas of what is good for us or bad for us. Either way, it is always a good idea to be more mindful of our own body and what we put in it.
As if the fruits and veggies weren't enough, there's the beans to consider.(I'm happy to know my black-eyed peas help my brain to function better!)
Also you get Fat Facts in this ebook. Here in the tropics coconut oil is everywhere and this book explains the differences in the types of oils as well as health benefits and risks.
Complete with colorful pix, if you miss this gem for .99, you've missed a bargain!
The book provides answers to important questions such as What is a superfood? What does it do for your health? Which fruits and veggies are included in the superfood bracket? What is organic fruits and veggies? Why are they better for your health? What foods are good for which health problem? What is the effect on your health when you don't have enough of them?
Another plus for this book is that it provides you with the information but also tells you where to find specific foods.
I found this section to make for educational reading and picked up a few things I didn't know, such as that just because food is grown without pesticides it doesn't necessarily make it scientifically organic.
The next and largest section of the book is dedicated to individual superfoods themselves. Each is dissected into the health benefits, the breakdown of vitamins and minerals and ways to include them in your diet. Each section contains tips as well to spot modified foods, for example if dried apricots are bright in colour they have had sulphites added to them.
The amount of information in here is enormous and will keep health conscious people occupied for quite some time.
Furthermore the section on fats was quite enlightening, where the author explains their uses and debunks a number of misconceptions.
Overall, this is recommended reading for anyone looking to expand their education into the world of superfoods or just wanting to eat and feel better.
