There are certain exceptional foods available in every grocery store--foods whose health benefits are well researched, well documented, and widely accepted. By eating each, we can lower our risk of developing a host of ailments--from heart disease to prostate cancer. Yet, many of the most beneficial foods remain under-used and underappreciated.
Writing in a vibrant, conversational style, Anahad O’Connor and Dave Lieberman explain why beets, nuts, fish, berries, tomatoes, spinach, cabbage, avocado, lentils, and quinoa are good for us, referencing scientific studies and historical anecdotes to inform readers on the proven benefits of each super food. The 10 Things You Need to Eat contains appealing, approachable dishes sure to please increasingly health-conscious Americans. Readers can construct full meals based on any of the 10 must-eat ingredients and satisfy not only their palettes but their brains, hearts, and vital organs as well.
But this book is more than a story about food. It is also a story of two friends from opposite backgrounds and ways of living--one with a passion for health, the other with a zest for fine food--uniting to help people eat well and live long.
