It is agreed that in order to enjoy optimal health, our body needs a diet that embraces nutrient-dense vegetables, fruits, low-fat proteins and nuts – widely known as superfoods.
Yet, to our considerable kismet, there’s more we can do to further boost our diet.
New research from the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) shows that nearly one quarter of the top antioxidant-rich foods available to us are, in fact, spices. Comparatively, weight for weight, spices are the most antioxidising foods on the planet. Many of these spices have also been acknowledged for their medicinal properties – and thus termed ‘superspices’.
Indian food brazenly employs the use of superspices more than any other major world cuisine.
Indian Superfood is the unique mealtime synergism between superfoods and superspices.
These new and exciting recipes are designed to stimulate both your health and your taste buds. You will find heavenly tasting Salmon and Sweet Potato Fishcakes; aromatic, spicy and ever-so-slightly fruity Chicken with Banana and Fenugreek; Oyster Pakora with Punch and Gusto Fresh Coriander Salsa; naans made with seaweed and roasted pumpkin seeds; a sublime Black Rice Pudding, and many delicious alternatives to classics like chicken tikka masala, lamb rogan josh and saag paneer.
Gurpareet’s collection of Indian Superfood recipes were published in July, 2010.
Superfood + Superspices = Indian Superfood
