101 Optimal Life Foods

Dave Grotto thinks so, in his new book 101 Optimal Life Foods he discusses the benefits of eating healthy to stay alert and keep your insides and outside shiny and new.
“For the millions of Americans tired of hearing about ‘what not to eat,’ this book is a refreshing and enlightening guide to improving your health by adding delicious foods to your diet. Dave’s simple explanations for why these foods are potential ‘life savers’ makes the book enjoyable to read, and the recipes bring the science to life on your plate.”—Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD, Nutrition Director, Prevention Magazine

Dave asked me to submit two recipes to his book and I gladly accepted. One of them is a Cocoa Encrusted Salmon with Blueberries. It was fun trying to pack as many antioxidants into the recipe as I could. Check out the book for more great suggestions. He also has included menus for great skin and alleviating the mid day nap attack.

Here are a few great ideas from this book, who knew?
• Chocolate, tea, and dried plums reduce the signs of aging skin.
• Combining walnuts and cherries can lead to the best sleep of your life.
• Artichoke leaves bring relief from common stomach ailments.
• Oysters can alleviate the effects of crippling migraines.
• Wasabi helps treat bad breath.

So check my recipes and try some out, maybe your kids will like them too.
