Grains and seeds possess potent health-giving properties; they are packed with vitamins, dietary fibre, and essential amino acids, and are known to support the immune system. But most people don’t incorporate enough of these superfoods into their diets, and they are missing out—on both the health benefits and on the flavor! Amy Ruth Finegold has rid herself of the health problems that plagued her and discovered a whole new exciting way to eat by embracing these ancient grains—from amaranth to bulgur, buckwheat to teff. Get off to a good start with Breakfast options including Amaranth Porridge and Pineapple Bran Muffins. Soups include the fruity and tangy Summer Melon Soup with Tamarind, while Salads and Snacks also make a perfect light meal—try a Wheatberry Salad with Apples and Pecans, or dip Amaranth Crackers into a vibrant Beet and Herb Dip. Entrées to enjoy include: Roasted Kombucha Squash with Avocado Hemp Yogurt Dressing and Lamb Chops with a Warm Quinoa Apricot Salad. Seeds and grains work well in sweet dishes, too. Round off your meal with Peach Pie with a Sunflower Seed Crust or Coconut Chia Pudding, or treat yourself to Quinoa Peanut Butter Cookies.
The healthy little green giant
This powerful little book encourages the imagination with recipes for everything from smoothies to appetizers to salads to side dishes to main dishes to desserts. Makes for interesting reading as well as novel but simple presentations for your next meal or potluck contribution. Beautiful photography and typeface. I like the minimalist approach, which proves that fresh, high-quality ingredients are enough, speak for themselves, and don’t need exotic hyper-preparation or improving. The recipes bring out the best in wholesome ingredients and offer guilt-free enjoyment that is easy to create and fun to eat.
