This small cookbook presents a feast for the eyes, with a focus on 100 "megafoods" known for their nutritional punch. The prefatory material provides an overview of the most recent nutritional research and guidance for making sound nutritional choices. The book then presents two-page entries for each of the 100 foods; some are quite specific (e.g., lentils), while others are more general in nature (e.g., beans). Each entry includes a paragraph on the nutritional benefits of the food, tips for storage and cooking, a page illustration, and a simple recipe using the ingredient in question. Recipes range from the simple (Peach and Tofu Smoothie) to the slightly more complicated or time-consuming (Chicken with Rosemary and Garlic). The organization is confusing as well. While there is an index and a glossary, the foods included are listed individually only on the back cover of the book. The entries appear to be grouped by general themes (e.g., fruits, vegetables, meats), but this is not explicitly explained. Recommended for general cookbook collections.
