Superfoods according to David Wolfe

'Superfoods' could refer to almost any apparently natural and healthy nutrition.

The selection in this book includes:
  • bee products (honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, propolis)
  • algae (spirulina, AFA super blue-green algae, chlorella)
  • green sea products (marine phytoplankton, kelp)
  • fruit and berries (goji, acai, camu camu, Incan berries, noni)
  • roots (maca, yacon)
  • nuts (cacao)
  • green leaves (aloe vera)
  • seeds (hemp, coconut).
Interestingly David Wolfe does not mention many well-known healthy foods. In the Introduction he explains that
  • raw/living plant foods were already the subject of his previous books ' The Sunfood Diet Success System' and 'Eating For Beauty'
  • 'Superherbs' will be the subject of a future book.
The 342 pages are a quick and easy read. I found the information and the recipes quite useful, although some of this stuff could be quite expensive or hard to find.
