Open a newspaper or magazine or turn on the news and you'll likely get yet another report about a new study that demonstrates the value of "superfoods" -- foods with high-powered, health-enhancing, disease-fighting micronutrients. But what these articles never tell you is how truly easy it is to enjoy eating these foods for the rest of your life. Now, with this collection of more than 200 tantalizing recipes from award-winning food writer and chef Dana Jacobi, you can discover the pure pleasure of eating the foods that are truly best for you.

Working with key ingredients selected for versatility as well as vitality, Jacobi exploits each food's abundant nutritional value in irresistible creations like thick and spicy Lean Mean Chocolate Chili and deceptively light Spinach Strudel. Dishes like Black Bean Bisque and Pan-Roasted Halibut with Carmelized Onions are perfect for entertaining but easy enough for weeknight meals, too. Chapters cover everything from fabulous breakfasts like French Toast with Hidden Blueberries, to satisfying snacks and innovative sides, to show-stopping desserts like Hot Chocolate Soufflé with Strawberry Salsa.

With a foreword by Mehmet Oz, M.D., and 40 lush color photographs, 12 Best Foods Cookbook reveals on every page that perhaps the ultimate benefit of eating what's good for you is how very good it can taste.
