Power Foods is a recipe book featuring some of the healthiest foods on the planet. It was compiled by “Whole Living” magazine, a Martha Stewart publication.
Martha Stewart says, “Healthy eating doesn’t have to be a challenge. It should be easy and it should be pleasurable.” The foods featured in this book were chosen because they contain outstanding amounts of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, and more, and have a proven track record of preventing disease and supporting good health.
Readers are introduced to the health benefits and disease-fighting properties of thirty-eight “power foods”.
The first section of the book also includes nutritional information about each food and advice on how to select, prepare and store them. The foods are listed by category: vegetables, fruits, grains and legumes, nuts and seeds, eggs/yogurt and fish.
Ten “golden rules” are outlined to help you follow a healthy diet.
