As evidenced by past experiments with clean eating, I have an interest in putting more whole foods on my plate. I try to stick to the outside aisles of the grocery store as much as possible, and recently I picked up a Ninja blender so I could have better luck making smoothies. So when I stumbled upon Sue Quinn’s new cookbook, Super Foods Every Day, I was excited to delve into it.
The first thing that Sue does is define what a super food is for her purposes. She has developed a listing of powerhouse foods which are high in vitamins, phytochemicals and other nutrients.Its from that extensive list that she builds out 65 recipes that are easy to make and good for you too.
The recipes range from breakfast to baked goods and include a lot of blueberries, kale, and even dark chocolate. We will be trying out a few of these recipes over the next couple of weeks, and I’ll be honest, some of them will require a leap of faith on my part, but as we’ve seen from past experiments, I often use this as an opportunity to expand my palate a little bit more, plus I’m finding more and more that being pushed out of my comfort zone is a great thing.
The book is clean, easy to follow and has excellent photography in it. My only criticism would be the total and complete lack of any nutritional information on any of the recipes. Sure, I can put all the ingredients into My Fitness Pal and go from there, but having them listed would have been a big benefit to the cookbook. For someone looking to incorporate more healthy choices into their diet, this book, which lists for $14.99 is a great option. The book is available next week and can be pre-ordered now.
