Background:
Nutritionist Bowden (The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth) is again exploring health y nutrition. The emphasis is on polymeal options, which are composed of ingredients that enhance heart and blood vessel health. Readers will find the work organized in an unusual way, with the first ten chapters arranged around a polymeal menu, usually made up of four dishes. Each chapter is lavishly illustrated with additional information about key ingredients and includes a pantry list as well as suggestions for menu substitutions based on recipes from other chapters. A typical menu includes Calf Liver with Green Onions, Sweet Beets and Greens, Veggie Slaw with Flax Oil, and Almond Butter Apricot Cookies. Bowden focuses on developing a high-nutrition polymeal that minimizes the use of sugar and simple starches (such as white flour or white potatoes). Other chapters focus on one pot polymeals (such as Slow Cooker Chicken Curry or Quinoa Risotto with White Beans, Arugula and Parmesan) and beverages. - Library Journal Xpress Reviews
