There's a superfood for everyone! Here's how to find and cook with your favorites.

A superfood is one that goes above and beyond the call of duty—not only are superfoods delicious, but they also pack a powerful nutrient punch. Skip the diet programs, pills, and promises—eating a diet rich in superfoods is the best way to stay healthy, maintain your weight, and fight all kinds of diseases and ailments. Many superfoods are familiar—blueberries, oats, walnuts, and even dark chocolate—but what about the more unusual superfoods, such as acai, farro, and hemp seeds? In this wide-ranging cookbook, author Cassie Johnston features 30 superfoods and more than 100 recipes, including:

  • Goji Berry Walnut Scones

  • Cheesy Baked Farro and Cauliflower

  • Orange-Balsamic-Glazed Beets

  • Dark Chocolate and Pistachio Yogurt Parfait

Her style of comfort food and beautiful photography will make a superfood lover out of anyone.
