Product Description

Review

"Morris details what's needed to create a superfood kitchen and pantry, cataloging ingredients from acai berries to yacon with flavor notes, recommended forms, and best uses. Techniques, too, receive their own focus, with discussions of equipment conventional (e.g., blender) as well as nontraditional, such as the dehydrator. Helpful appendixes include a superfood substitution cheat sheet, conversion charts, how to make nut and seed milks, frequently asked questions, and an ingredient resources guide." --Booklist

I love this book. It is what I have been looking for a long time. It has a combination of easy to find ingredients and challenging ones. It is well written, good outcomes pretty much all the time. Nice photos. In general, I think its really worth it.
I think its a nice vegan book, its elegant, which is not always the case in the veggie world.

Super Awesome Superfood Cookbook!!! July 12 2011
By Captain Cacao - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
SUPER!!! This is my new favorite book, i just received my copy and cooked up 2 dishes last night for my sisters, and we are now all hooked.
I've been eating vegan and cooking with superfoods for years now, and now finally there is book that addresses all the wonderful Superfoods we've been seeing appear on the shelves of our local natural foods market, that we have no idea what to do with. I always found myself experimenting and buying a $10 bag of some superfood just to try it and see what it was about, but after snacking on it by itself, which was usually delicious, i still got a little board. Well here's a book that explains each Superfood, and gives you heeps of recipes to use them in. Now i no longer have to buy a bag of some obscure Superfood to just use 1 tsp because i can now turn it into breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack, desert or even a drink. Also It's not just a cookbook, it's a guide. The Author Julie Morris, enlightens and educates the reader on why these Superfoods are important, how the way we eat can protect us from the rise in chronic disease and the relationship between the two, how to break habits (based on her own personal experience), loads of nutritional information as well as smart kitchen techniques.

So Far i've tried the Quinoa With Secret Pesto & Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Sacha Inchi Buckeyes! I'm just gonna say that the only reason i'm not making these every night this week is that i want to try other recipes in the book. Wows, Mmmmmmm's and Nom Nom Noms were all i heard from me and my sisters until nothing was left. I might just have to close my eyes and pick a page to make deciding on the next recipe easier. All her recipes have this wonderful creativeness to them, and her words are written as if she's talking right to you, making you laugh and exciting your taste buds.

If you eat food this book is for you.
Love, Peace, Music and Superfoods

Gorgeous Book, Fabulous Teaching, Amazing Recipes! Nov. 8 2012
By Naomi Manygoats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am finishing up my natural food chef training (it was on my bucket list), and spotted this book yesterday. We learned a little about superfoods, and made a few recipes that used some of them, but that was about it. So a huge thank you to Julie Morris, for writing such a terrific book about Superfoods. Morris explains what a superfood is, why we need nutrient dense foods, and how to set up your kitchen, both in equipment and ingredients. I particularly appreciate her extensive explanation of ingredients. For example, what is a Camu Camu Berry, flavor notes for the berry, recommended forms of it, and the use of them. The book features gorgeous photography, which Morris did herself, and a beautiful layout and design, which shows her background in design before becoming a Natural Foods Chef. It would benefit all of us to eat more of these amazing foods and this book presents everything so clearly. The recipes look like they would appeal to just about everyone.

The recipes look fresh, fabulous, and yes, the ingredients might seem strange if you are not used to superfoods. But the whole point is to learn what they are, and how to cook with them. The recipes will appeal to a wide range of people, not just those into 'health foods'. So they will be great to sneak into your spouse's diet or your kids food as well. The ingredient lists contain a special symbol to annotate which of the foods are superfoods. The recipes are arranged as follows:

Breakfasts (Banana Seed Bread, Goldenberry Pancakes, Cinnamon-Almond Granola with Mulberries)
Soups (Roasted Pumpkin Soup, Tomato and Quinoa Soup)
Salads (Hearty Kale Salad, Arugula and Asian Pear Salad with Lemon Camu Vinaigrette)
Entrees (Mediterranean Vegetable Pizza, Black Bean-Hemp Protein Patties, Quinoa with Secret Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomatoes)
Sides (Hemp Hummus, Olive Caviar)
Snacks (Energizer Trail Mix, Chocolate Hemp and Oat Bars)
Sweets (Acai Berry Truffles, Raw Chocolate, Acai Berry Cheesecake)
Drinks (Antioxidant Paradise Smoothie, Chocolate Berry Protein Shake)

Then there are extra (helpful) sections, such as Charts (like the Superfood Substitution Cheat Sheet), and an Ingredient Resources Guide. I would not be surprised if the natural foods cooking schools ended up using this as a text and creating a new section specifically on the topic of Superfoods. Well done Julie Morris!

Take advice with a grain of salt - but the recipes are sensational! Sept. 5 2014
By Lauren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A beautifully designed book that is perfect for anyone delving into the realm of superfoods for the first time. The recipes are unique and inspiring (and so far, absolutely delicious!). It does call for exotic ingredients (I mean, that's what Superfoods are!). But the benefits are explained and are readily obtainable through iHerb, Amazon and her website for the most part.

Having said that, I must admit that my heart sank when the first recipe called for "wheat flour". After her introduction about the anti-inflammatory and health promoting benefits of Superfoods, I was appalled to see that there was no recognition that Gluten is pro-inflammatory and gut damaging. Based on the extensive research reviewed by Dr Tom O'Bryan and Willaim Davis (author of Wheat Belly), Gluten has been found to be a health damaging food. The alternatives to gluten are pushed aside to purchase "gluten free flour" (which one?) instead, with the necessary modifications omitted.

The book's claims are not supported by the evidence and touts repeated myths (that have long been disproven), such as avoiding dietary cholesterol to prevent heart disease and pH balancing. The one reference to a single study she cites isn't even acknowledged! Where is she getting her information from? She does make reference to the China Study, which has a flawed research design (you can read an evidence based perspective, here http://www.cholesterol-and-health.com/China-Study.html) and only demonstrates a weak correlation that hasn't been well supported by other research (which is not a definitive result). These are just a few examples of the unsubstantiated claims she makes throughout the book.

The nonsense aside, I do agree that one cannot go wrong with a nutritionally dense diet and I will take a lot of pleasure trying her unique, stunning enticing recipes. Every single recipe is a source of inspiration for taste and nutrition and makes a wonderful supplement to any food enthusiast's cookbook collection. As a cookbook, it is worth displaying proudly but as a source of information, it hardly qualifies.

Educate Yourself! July 25 2011
By Mamalu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book the minute Julie announced it on her website! It is by far the very best cookbook I have ever read or used! The recipes are delicious and the text has inspired me into a conscious and deliberate quest for a life free from mainstream "food." Yes, the ingredients can not be bought at your local corner mart, however, your health is more important than that convenience... Shop the easy online sources provided at the end of the book and before you know it, you will have everything you need to enjoy each and every unique recipe! Embrace a knew way to nourish yourself and your family. Educate yourself to better Health.
