Jane's Delicious Superfoods For Super Health
Jane’s Delicious Superfoods for Super Health is a comprehensive guide to more than 150 delicious, nutrient-rich foods which, when eaten as part of a balanced diet, boost our immune system, improve our health and reduce the risk of disease.
From asparagus to zucchini, maca root to shiitake mushrooms, chickpeas to pomegranates, buckwheat to brazil nuts, the book covers fruits and vegetables, seeds and grains, herbs and spices, nuts, seaweeds, mushrooms and more. A wealth of detailed information is provided on why these foods are good for us, as well as how to maximise their benefits and incorporate them easily into our daily meals.
Written in Jane's practical and entertaining style, and full of fascinating titbits about the history and origins of what we eat, the book also covers health aspects such as food sensitivities and the importance of gut bacteria, kitchen and pantry basics, plus useful tips on smoothies, sprouting, juicing, dehydrating, fermenting and healthy cooking. And for those keen to grow their own superfoods, there is also gardening advice.
