What You Should Know
The 10 Things You Need to Eat: And More Than 100 Easy and Delicious Ways to Prepare Them is a cookbook focused around ten super foods you should make part of your regular diet. Super foods are high in nutrition and help to improve overall health. The book is a collaboration between New York Times Health Reporter Anahad O’Connor and Food Network Chef, Dave Lieberman. The concept of the book helps people to find the balance between eating food that can kill you and eating food that has good taste.
List of Ingredients
The cookbook lists the ten super foods which meet the following guidelines: they are easily found in many grocery stores nationwide, provide scientifically proven health benefits, and are easily included in a variety of recipes. There is a chapter for each one of the ten super foods, which provides recipes for you to use on a regular basis, as well as information about the food, where it comes from, how it is cultivated, and what health benefits it has to offer. The recipes do not include lots of ingredients, and most of them can be made in under 30 minutes, so even those with busy lifestyles can use the super foods in their diets. There is also a list of “honorable mention” foods that are good for you to use regularly but didn’t quite make the cut in comparison to the list of ten. Foods that are recommended in this cookbook include: tomatoes, avocados, red wine, and fish.
- This book encourages people to eat a lot of foods that have scientifically proven health benefits.
- The reader is given plenty of information about the foods to determine why they are healthy choices.
- This book does not encourage people to exercise.
- This book is not specifically aimed at weight loss.
- There is no meal plan for people to follow.
- Just because the recipes feature super foods, does not make them healthy overall. Many of the recipes feature ingredients such as sugar and processed foods.
The 10 Things You Need to Eat: And More Than 100 Easy and Delicious Ways to Prepare Them is a good cookbook for those who want to learn more about the nutrition behind foods they enjoy eating. It is not specifically designed for weight loss and should not be treated like a meal plan for better health, but more as a guide to help people learn how to eat healthy. If you followed the guidelines in the book and used recipes to develop your own balanced reduced caloric intake plan and combined it with exercise on a regular basis, you may see weight loss results.
