Review: 'SuperFoods Rx' by Steven Pratt, MD and Kathy Matthews

SuperFoods Rx by Steven Pratt, MD and Kathy Matthews, 2004, William Morrow, $24.95, hardbound, 336 pages. Category/Genre: health. Cover: tasty. Where we got it: borrowed it. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million.

'SuperFoods' are those whole foods that provide massive amounts of nutrition -- in other words, the most healthful foods you can eat. There's a ton of information in this book, from what each of these foods can do for you, to the nutrients each contains, to how you can incorporate each SuperFood into your diet. 

Where possible, substitutions for the SuperFoods are given -- so if you don't like oranges, for instance, you can have lemons, white or pink grapefruit, kumquats, tangerines, or limes instead. Pratt and Matthews say how many servings of each food you should try to get each day, and they also provide a smattering of recipes, some of which sound quite tasty.
