 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

Background


Superfood Cuisine is a cookbook written by Julie Morris, natural food chef and health educator. Morris says that superfoods are the most nutrient-dense foods on earth and they can boost your energy, control cravings for unhealthy food, revitalize the body and ward off disease.

The book includes information about a wide range of different superfoods, advice on how to shop for and use them, as well as over a hundred recipes containing superfoods.

Super Food  Cuisine Basics

Morris starts by defining what superfoods are and how they can promote radiant health and an improved sense of well-being. She outlines how they can act as a defense against environmental toxins while simultaneously reducing our risk of developing chronic disease.

Each superfood is described in detail including a general outline and its history of use, nutritional and health benefits, how to consume it, and flavor notes.

Over a hundred recipes are provided highlighting one or more superfoods. Each recipe is composed entirely of plant-based whole foods, while avoiding the use of animal products and refined ingredients.

Morris offers readers guidelines on subjects such as how to stock a superfood pantry, smart kitchen techniques, superfood ingredient substitutions and answers to frequently asked questions.
