Readers looking for more versatility from their superfoods can turn to The Book of Kale & Friends ($22.95, 224 pp) by Sharon Hanna and Carol Pope, a book covering how to grow and cook your own superfoods. Though the book has a strong focus on kale, including growing tips as well as recipes raging from kale salads to kale cookies to several kale cocktails, other superfoods are profiled as well. These superfoods are not only rich in nutrients, but easy to grow, including parsley, arugula, garlic, and sage. Even the family dog can join in, with a chapter dedicated to Canine Kale Cuisine.
