It's that time of year again - time to shed those extra winter pounds and get ready for spring break!
I don't believe in dieting, but I do believe in maintaining a healthy diet, and lightening things up a bit in the spring. Super Foods Every Day is a new cookbook that fits my anti-dieting stance: it offers nutrition-packed recipes that will supercharge your regular, healthy diet.
Author Sue Quinn is an England-based food writer, journalist, and author of several cookbooks covering subjects as diverse as Japanese, Spanish, and vegan cooking, and cooking with children. Her latest book, Super Foods Every Day is collection of more than 60 dishes that showcase super foods: ingredients from kale and seaweed to cocoa and avocado that are brimming with vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting nutrients.This book arrived just in time, as I'm looking to pack more nutrition into my daily diet. The dishes presented in this book are straightforward, the recipes easy-to-follow. I also appreciate the fact that the ingredient list for each dish is relatively simple and I can find everything at my local grocery store. An image accompanies each dish. These recipes make sense: why not amp up regular dishes, like a frittata or a fruit crisp or even a veggie side dish, with just a few extra ingredients to increase vitamins and mineral intake while also upping the flavor factor?
You can find a free sample of this book here, or order it on amazon.com or at your local bookstore.
