    This book has a worthwhile goal, it lists 10 super-foods that are commonly available as opposed to exotic foods that have very few uses. FYI the 10 things are: tomatoes, avocado, beets, spinach, quinoa, lentils, cabbage, super fish, nuts and berries. Each food has its own chapter, health benefits are discussed and health factoids are scattered thru the chapter. Each item also has a few recommended recipes and some other food items are given honorable mention.

Each item also has a few recommended recipes and some other food items are given honorable mention. For the most part I found the recipes to be too common, basic gazpacho? Really?, or not suitable for small quantities, anyone who's cooked for a while probably has many recipes for most of these ingredients. Also ironic for a healthy cookbook, there's no nutritional information given for the recipes. There were some surprises, I don't much with beets and the few times I cooked quinoa, it didn't turn out that great. I may retry using quinoa and possibly mess around with some beet recipes. Also new to me is the use of avocado as a butter replacement in baked goods as well as in hot soups. What can I say about this book? Eat your veggies!

    Five years ago, "The Abs Diet" book transformed my diet. Virtually overnight I turned into a "perimeter" grocery store shopper, only venturing into the middle aisles for things like canned tomatoes, coconut milk, and whole wheat pasta. Gone were the days of Pasta Roni, Lean Pockets, frozen pizzas and microwaveable dinners. It helped that this was right around the time I met my husband, who was clearly not impressed with my culinary skills, but really, my main goal in changing my diet back then w Five years ago, "The Abs Diet" book transformed my diet. Virtually overnight I turned into a "perimeter" grocery store shopper, only venturing into the middle aisles for things like canned tomatoes, coconut milk, and whole wheat pasta. Gone were the days of Pasta Roni, Lean Pockets, frozen pizzas and microwaveable dinners. It helped that this was right around the time I met my husband, who was clearly not impressed with my culinary skills, but really, my main goal in changing my diet back then was to improve my running performance. I started to realize that a piece of salmon over a bed of spinach was much more effective recovery for my muscles after a 20 mile long run than say, an entire frozen pizza followed up by the whole pint of Ben & Jerry's. Shocking, I know. Not to mention somewhat embarrassing that I didn't already know these things, but I digress. My purpose in reading this 'book' (it's actually mostly a cookbook) was not to change my diet, but to enhance it. Fresh fruits and vegetables are already a staple in my diet - what I wanted here, was to learn which ones packed the biggest nutritional bang for your forkful. And why. The goal I have now is to get the maximum health benefits from what I put in my mouth. This book definitely fit the bill of what I was looking for. After reading it, I feel much more knowledgable about which foods I should be incorporating into my diet and why. I'm pumped to go to the grocery store and put my newfound knowledge to work. I can't comment on the recipes yet, but the information thats given on each food is impressive. I think this book should be required reading for kids in our country.

    I occasionally like to read books like this to help me get back into my healthy cooking groove. This one definitely kicked my butt with awesome facts about cancer and heart disease rates being so much lower among those who eat following these guidelines. I already know this stuff, really, but to be reminded is good and to be remotivated to make it a priority is even better. I will admit that many of the recipes still seem too far out there... like ingredients that I've never heard of, but I also I occasionally like to read books like this to help me get back into my healthy cooking groove.

I made the Chocolate Beet Mini-Cakes the other day and they turned out to be really tasty. I want to buy this book but will probably wait until it isn't popular anymore and the price drops. :)

    The 10 Things You Need to Eat by Anahad O'Connor: I really enjoyed this book! It was informative, smart, to the point, and witty. It was surprising the way you can put to use some of the foods: avocado's subbed for butter and beets in dessert. There was food that I have never heard of: Quinoa. It was a pleasant surprise to learn that I liked 7 out of the 10 foods. As a picky eater, I was a bit worried. That means it should not be difficult to make them part of my daily diet.

The list of staple ingredients were just a bonus to make your life healthier. My recommendation would be if you like books that explain why they picked certain foods then this book is a must have!

    Informative I learned so much about the foods I already eat. I am a vegetarian and was surprised the authors used meat in some of the recipes. Pork is counterproductive if you want to eat healthier.

    The 10 Things You Need to Eat: And More Than 100 Easy and Delicious Ways to Prepare Them (Kindle Edition) by Anahad O'Connor Interesting commentary... nice sense or humor, but most of the recipes are too time consuming for me, with lots of items I'd have to go out and buy.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The 10 Things You Need to Eat is really hitting the mark for me and the way I like to cook and eat. Too many times, I have found nutritional recipes that contain hard to find ingredients and/or items that are not very appealing to my taste buds! (I am less than half-way through and while I have read and visually tasted many of the recipes, I have yet to try any of them. My 4 star rating reflects this.) This book is great in that respect. Each of the 10 foods is presented within its own chapter. The 10 Things You Need to Eat is really hitting the mark for me and the way I like to cook and eat.

Each of the 10 foods is presented within its own chapter. The food is discussed and than many recipes are listed using each food. I really love the natural slant in the majority of recipes as I am not a fan of prepared foods of any kind, (I'll be skipping all the canned tomato recipes!). One other ingredient I don't care for is Canada rapeseed oil, also known as canola oil. Olive oils range in taste and I am positive that there is a mild enough olive oil amongst the many olive oils imported to the U.S. that can be used in the recipes calling for canola. I have learned a few things about some of the foods that I did not know--using avocados in smoothies--and I am really looking forward to trying them out. I also like that some of the items are items that are less commonly used like beets and cabbage. I love both, but my mind can not envision right off hand of more than a couple of ways of of preparing either of the two. I am really excited about trying out many of the recipes. This book of recipe is best for those people who like their food simple, natural tasting, and filled with a mild complexity of flavor. Provecho!

    When I heard these guys interviewed on NPR, I knew I had to check this out. It definitely does not disappoint. It was great to read about "superfoods" that one can actually find, afford, and use with some versatility. And the idea of pairing the information about those foods with recipes to try them out is a fantastic one. There were a number of recipes I plan to try, including the Triple Tomato pizza, which is made with whole wheat dough and fresh mozzerella. Yum!

    Simple to understand book on nutrition and the function of nutrients for our bodies. it lists 10 foods that you should try to incorporate into your diet with simple recipes and good information about the health benefits of these foods that create motivation to eat them. It's a simple, low-pressure book that doesn't advocate a complete diet change but simply to include these nutrient-dense foods into our regular menu.

    Trying to improve my diet and eat more veggies. This book provides some good principles to incorporate and some excellent recipes. I'm learning to love quinoa! It even made me feel good about cake (a blueberry bundt made with olive oil and topped with blueberry sauce!) Yum Yum everything I've tried has turned out well.

    This book seemed a little accusatory to it's audience, "Did you know Americans ______" Except that people who are going to choose to read this book are probably already making healthy choices to some extent. Some of the recipes look good, haven't made any yet though. The informational bits about different foods were very interesting to me.

    This was a really well-organized book and would be fantastic for meal planning because it's broken down by the main ingredient and has solid descriptions of each ingredient and why they are good for health. I appreciate the focus on healthy ingredients like cabbage over, say, sexier ingredients. Some of the recipes are out of scope for average people.

    I really liked this book. It had a great amount of scientific info without overloading me. None of the recipes seem that exciting but will still try some. I loved the information about cooking techniques with the different ingredients, for example, how much water to use with quinoa. Very helpful.

    Highly recommended! Great layout, very informative. My favorite tip was for cooking quinoa - going against most recipes and adding way less water (1:1 1/4, not 1:2) making the quinoa fluffy like couscous.

    On the fence on this one. I loved the list of 10 ingredients one should eat. However, I was under-impressed when I made one of the recipes. Now 1 recipe in not much to base a book on. So I tried a second with the same result. And I will seek out other recipes with these ingredients.

    If you're looking for a new cookbook, this is it! I read it cover-to-cover in practically one sitting. Lots of good nutritional advice, and the recipes included are amazing. I think I folded the corners on at least 50 new dishes that I want to add immediately to my cooking. If you're looking for a new cookbook, this is it!
