Learn simple ways to incorporate fiber-rich super foods into your diet every day.

REVIEW: This is a small book (6 x 81/2) packed with good information. The author starts out talking about what a super food is. She gives a mini crash course (In a few pages) titled Superfoods 101 and a helpful information sheet on the vitamins found in superfoods. Each recipe gives the serving size, the time it takes to prepare and cook the dish. It lists the vitamins found in the recipe along with the potential benefits you could get in consuming the dish. The ingredients are easy to find and the instructions easy to follow. 

What I found difficult was the size of the print and the font style used. Even with my glasses on I felt like I needed a magnifying glass to read the instructions and the ingredient list. The other thing that made the ingredient list difficult to read was the fact that it was centered to the page. It wasn’t to the left of the margin. They bolded the ingredient name to help the reader find it but I found it hard to pick out what I needed for the recipe. I find it easier to read if the ingredients are to the left margin stacked on top of each other.

The author lists some yummy looking recipes I would try smoothies, strawberry spread, porridge and muesli. She has salads and soups that look good. The Go-to Cleanse Salad and super slaw looked good. Under Side Dishes Stir-fried greens, Healing Curry Bowl and Supercharged carrots looked good. On the Main Dish section the Salmon with Watercress Sauce, Salmon Burger and Chessy Vegetable Pies looked good. Of course there were yummy looking items in the baked good section and sweet things that I wouldn’t mind trying. Like Guilt-Free Crumble Cake, Zesty Chia Cupcakes, Virtuous Brownies, Goodness Bars and Chocolate Chia pudding.
