Library Journal
Emphasizing tomatoes, avocados, beets, spinach, quinoa, lentils, cabbage, fish, nuts, and berries for their health benefits, accessibility, and versatility, Lieberman (Young & Hungry), host of Food Network's Good Deal and Eat This, and New York Times health columnist O'Connor offer simple recipes and suggestions on, e.g., cooking beets, getting kids to eat spinach, and microwave blanching in addition to honorable-mention foods (e.g., olive oil and pomegranates). This well-researched cookbook, with 17 pages of references, is bound to inspire readers to add more superfoods to their weekly cooking rotation.

    Excellent Information

    This book answered a lot of questions for me and backed up thoughts I'd had about our food for years. I've tried almost all of the recipes in the book and they are really good. This book is well written, very informative and I'd recommend it for anyone interested in eating the right foods.

    Just get it at the library

    I was excited to get this book after seeing it on the TODAY show, but the book lacks illustrations, the paper is a bit cheap, however I learned a great deal for the use of old and new foods and recipies.
