The rest of the title on this book is "the Most Nutrient-Dense Fruits and Vegetables, in 150 Delicious Recipes", and that is just what this book does. It presents 50 fruits and vegetables in alphabetical order. Each section has a description of the food, nutritional information, and other health benefits like it fights cancer, builds your immunity, or helps control your cholesterol. It then lists cooking and prep suggestions, some suggestions for ways to "try it!" (simple things like sauteed in oil with carrots and red onions, or cooked with potatoes and drizzled with balsamic), and then has three detailed recipes-- some with photos, and some without, but all with nutritional information.
One recipe I tried, that I looooved, is the one for Peachy Oatmeal.
The book also has an index that is sorted by ingredient as well as recipe, and those handy folding flaps inside the cover that are great for marking the spot of your next cooking adventure.
This book is filled with recipes I want to try, and a wealth of information on the health benefits of the plants deemed the "most nutrient-dense". I think this one is destined to become one of my favorite cookbooks (and I have lots and lots of them)!
