I am thrilled to share with you, my dearest blog readers, that my second book Everyday Superfoods is out for preorder and will be available from 1st March 2021.
ABOUT THE BOOK
THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO ADDING SUPERFOODS TO YOUR DIET, ONE EASY STEP AT A TIME.
Superfoods are buzzword and a marketing ploy more than an actual food group, that every health food brand and store is trying to woo us with. But if we had to describe superfoods, these would comprise foods that are very rich in one or more nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Due to their nutrient density, these foods help boost general health, immunity, longevity, or are known for specific benefits such as cancer prevention, blood sugar management etc.
In a country as large and diverse as India, it is important to examine what superfoods mean in the context of our local produce, which is diverse and wide-ranging – from millets in Karnataka to amaranth in Himachal Pradesh; turmeric in Salem to tea in Darjeeling and so on. This book aims to be the definitive read on how one can introduce superfoods to one’s diet through simple recipes that can be made everyday. From easy meal plans that can be followed to choosing what to use based on your needs – whether it is boosting immunity or reducing hypertension and treating diabetes – Everyday Superfoods is the book that will form a crucial next step in your wellness journey.

The book starts with an introspective look at our present-day relationship with food and how we can take baby steps to improve it.
It goes on to explore how we can enrich our diet with superfoods in an easy and gradual manner.
The Superfood Compendium takes a detailed look at 39 local superfoods from Amaranth to Wheatgrass, giving multiple ways to use each of these superfoods in the diet, the scientifically proven health benefits of each one of them and practical tips around these ingredients.
Specific Superfoods gives you a list of foods to include for specific conditions like diabetes, cancer, heart disease, digestive health, superfoods for children etc. along with the reasons for including these foods.
Getting practical with superfoods is my favourite chapter in which includes tips on weekly menu planning, incorporating superfoods into the menu, shopping for superfoods, cooking and storage implements, how to meal prep, superfood swaps, creating your own superfood recipes, setting up a kitchen garden and lots more! I promise you that you will find tons of inspiration in this chapter.
Superfoods and Sustainability – In our present times, we cannot talk about eating healthy without keeping sustainability in mind. For example, is a diet full of superfoods that have a high carbon footprint worth it? How to eat healthy while caring for our soil and planet and leaving it in a decent shape for our future generations is a very important thing to consider and it has been discussed in detail in the chapter on sustainability.
Superfood recipes – The final chapter has 60 recipes all made using the superfoods listed in the compendium in chapter 4. The recipes are divided into Meal Prep (stuff that you can make for the week and stock up in the refrigerator), Beverages, Breakfast, Salads, Mains and Sweets.
If you have been following me on my social media channels, you already know that I am just a ping away for any queries or further clarifications regarding my book or anything about healthy eating and nutrition. I plan to do a lot of little video clips and posts on my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to help bring these Everyday Superfoods into your life with ease.
So do preorder your copy of Everyday Superfoods today. I promise you that it will be your dependable partner for a healthy lifestyle 🙂
