This is a book about nutrition and its crucial importance in maintaining good health and avoiding disease. Dr. Pratt lists 14 "super" foods (beans, broccoli . . .walnuts, yogurt), explains why they are important, names their "sidekicks", i.e., other foods that have the same qualities, recommends ways to use them, and includes recipes using these foods (which I can't vouch for).Despite its punchy title, the text is sober and exclamation point free, the data is supported and the conclusions are pursuasive.read more

I thought this book was pretty fantastic. I loved how it gave you all different aspects on the foods recommend. The history of the food, WHY the food is good for you, WHAT the food can do for you and WHO the food might benefit most. There was a lot of scientific information that sometimes I tended to glance through, but it was all very useful information. Then the book broke it down very easily for anyone on how it could be incorporated into our diet. It also gives lots of easy recipes which is great. The book was also honest about the fat content and how it should be eaten. It really inspired me to go out and throw everything in my fridge and cupboards away and start fresh. Good stuff.read more
