Healthy Secrets Superfoods Recipes (Incredibly Healthy & Delicious Collection Book 1)
I have the entire collection of Julie Morris books and this one is my favorite. I have tried many of the recipes and enjoy all of them.
I have bookmarked many pages. Great to use with my Vitamix. I often need to substitute items due to being a vegan and my serious food allergies; however, a fabulous selection. I have purchased and tried many new items and ingredients, due to this great book. The hardcover is beautiful with high res images and easy to follow instructions and recipes.
If you love smoothies and healthy living, this is the book. Superfood Kitchen is larger. I am pretty picky about cookbooks photography and quality recipes. These books have it all! Jul 07, Lisa Shafer rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction , not-recommended. This is the height of gustatory snobbery! Are you a wealthy, lactose intolerant vegan living in New York City? This book may be for you!
On the other hand, if you're a middle-class, milk-loving resident of rural Montana whose budget has no room for weekly purchases of Thai coconuts Morris sniffs and condescends to mention there are other, oh-so-inferior types out there. Nearly every recipe in this book calls for specialty items such as camu powd This is the height of gustatory snobbery!
1. You’ll find everything you “AVO” wanted at Avocado Factory (vegan, vegetarian options)
Nearly every recipe in this book calls for specialty items such as camu powder, goji berries, and lucuma fruit. And Morris-the-Milk-Hater will go so far as to pair cauliflower with chocolate to get creaminess. Thus, if you think it odd that some of us don't actually keep a supply of dried mulberries and coconut water on hand, and if you think that peanut butter is only fit for the smoothies you make your German Shepherd in order to get him to eat kale, then this book is probably a good choice for you. Personally, I received it as a gift, and I did find it made for very amusing reading; hence I gave it two stars instead of one.

It was cool and all actually found some really neat ideas for interesting smoothies but sort of a shame that what this really is, at the end of the day, this book, it's a ploy to get you to buy certain products from a certain merchandiser. You're gonna sort of have to. It's like if I was commissioned to write a book on training to run a half marathon, and I was being paid by Nike to write the book, and in the contract, Nike's stipulations included that for each chapter, I must mention or end with recommended Nike active-wear, as part of the training.
This is that book. Except replace "half marathon" with "smoothies" and "Nike" with "Navitas Naturals" and no mention except for a thank you in the acknowledgments of the fact that Navitas Naturals is trying to get you to buy their products.

Some fantastic sounding recipes. The descriptions of each recipe make me want to try foods I've never had before. And I'm not a food adventuress!

Superfoods are the real deal, but can be hard to incorporate into your diet on a daily basis without a plan.

I'm a meat and diary lover, but that doesn't mean they should be in my healthy smoothies. Personally, I appreciate that Morris DOESN'T become didactic and preach about the horrors of meat and diary, but simply focuses on why fruit and veggie smoothies are healthy. I've tried 8 of the recipes thus far and all have been delicious! I love how thorough Morris is in describing the benefits of smoothies and each of the "Super 15" superfood ingredients. I hate just throwing in chia seeds because "they" say they're good for you. Now, I understand the benefit of each type of superfood and how to integrate them.
Using a powerful blender will absolutely make a difference in your smoothie game! Try a powerful Ninja or the almighty Vitamix! This seems like a serious oversight for a healthy living cookbook. Many of us count our calories, so it's rather annoying! Nov 23, Millicent rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviewed , healthy-recipes , favorites.
I will certainly purchase this book. Not only are the recipes in this book original and delicious, they are nutritionally dense and varied. It is a well designed book. She details the importance of various superfoods, lays out her recipes with information about their particular benefits to your health, gives you a range of tips on substitutions and how to layer the perfect smoothie so you too can design your own superfood recipes.

The down side is that eating this well is due to privilege. All t I will certainly purchase this book. All the recipes in this book contain ingredients that are inaccessible or unaffordable for many people: like lucuma, maca, camu berries, maqui berries, acai powder, and sea buckthorn berries. I think they are all worth an investment in, but it's unfortunate that many people will not be able to do the same thing and I wish she had written about this unfairness in our capitalist system which forces people into bad health.
Jan 30, Cynthia rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone interested in making smoothies. Shelves: cookbook , own , favorites , non-fiction. And this one is exactly what I have been looking for. Yes, the expense of adding the "optional" superfoods to the smoothies may lighten your wallet.
10 Superfood Smoothie Recipes to Kickstart Your Day
The book is full of color pictures with easy to follow recipes. Anything and everything you would need to know about making a smoothie, the ingredients, the basics, about the superfoods, or even making your own nut and seed milks is contained here. Jan 13, Karen rated it liked it Shelves: cooking , non-fiction. I'm glad that it was dairy free. So many recipes contain yogurt in them.
However, I had to order several ingredients online because I couldn't find them in my local store. Most of the recipes were not that tasty. Apr 09, Alicia Bayer rated it did not like it. We love smoothies at our house, so when my husband brought me this book free from the library's free book swap section I was happy to have a source for new recipes. Unfortunately, absolutely none of the recipes would work for our family. Every single one calls for expensive purchased "superfoods" which are apparently sold by the author's company. She never says she works for the company, but other reviewers did the detective work to find that out and it was a bit of an aha moment for me.
I couldn't for the life of me figure out why every single recipe had to call for a "superfood" like a tablespoon of dried mulberries and she warns not to leave any ingredients out! Now I happen to be lucky and our family forages mulberries every summer, but the author points out that most people cannot find them locally and will need to purchase them online.

For a ton of money. I love mulberries and they do have some great benefits I didn't know about the anti-aging component, which is awesome , but if I didn't have local access I'd just use another ingredient. Come on now.
Just no. You can be healthy and frugal. Smoothies and good health are not just for the super-rich. For that matter, you can forage quite a few of the ingredients for free mulberries, black raspberries, purslane, nettles, blueberries, clover, wild plums, watercress, highbush cranberries Maybe that should be my next foraging book Jan 26, Emily rated it really liked it. I have been trying to learn more about superfoods, eating healthy, and smoothies recently and picked this book up from the library on a whim.
Definitely found it super helpful, especially in breaking down a little bit more about some of the ingredients I've heard of, but didn't know much about. A great example was that other books had recommended flaxseeds to me, but this one told me I need to grind them because otherwise my body won't actually digest them!
I was flabbergasted, as many other boo I have been trying to learn more about superfoods, eating healthy, and smoothies recently and picked this book up from the library on a whim.
