Description
From the former medical director of America's preeminent spa, Canyon Ranch, here's scientifically sound way to boost your immune system, stave off cancers, and prevent heart disease with foods found right in your grocery store. In PowerFoods, Dr. Stephanie Beling introduces readers to phytochemicals, disease-fighting dynamos found in all plant foods, from garlic to grapefruit, from raspberries to rutabagas. She explains what they are, how they work, and the best ways of getting more of them into every meal. The book also includes 140 easy, great-tasting recipes developed by two top chefs.
What scientists are discovering is that a single fruit or vegetable contains thousands of phytochemicals in minute amounts that interact in complex but complementary ways to prevent certain diseases and enhance overall health. Every bite of an apricot, every serving of salad contains a rich chemical stew that can flush away carcinogens, lower serum cholesterol, boost immune function, and more. Some foods are more beneficial than others, and Beling highlights the top ten foods groups - the PowerFoods. She then explains their arsenal of chemical weapons and points out the most delicious sources.
