A Review of “The Lost Superfoods”

As a key part of The Lost Ways book collection, The Lost Superfoods by Art Rude, Lex Rooker, Claude Davis and Fred Dwight offers an easy to navigate compilation of over 30 recipes of long-lasting survival foods and stockpile recommendations.

In this 270 page book, you’ll discover a wide variety of recipes and methods dedicated to sharing foods that are not only extremely healthy and nutrient dense, but also remarkably shelf-stable.

Some of the foods found in this book are ones you may already be familiar with or at least have heard of. Others are lesser-known or altogether “forgotten”- lost if you will- among today’s minutia of the Pinterest-pretty meals you’ll find on blogs across the web.

Although the recipes found within this invaluable info product may not be extravagant or exotic, they could certainly be considered rare. Many of them tend toward lesser-known ingredients that are not as easy to find and purchase as some of their more trendy, health food blog counterparts may be.

The Lost Superfoods

  • Berries. High in fiber, berries are naturally sweet, and their rich colors mean they are high in antioxidants and disease-fighting nutrients.
  • Fish. Fish can be a good source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which help prevent heart disease.
  • Olive oil. Olive oil is a good source of vitamin E, polyphenols, and monounsaturated fatty acids, all which help reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Leafy greens. Dark, leafy greens are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and calcium, as well as several phytochemicals (chemicals made by plants that have a positive effect on your health). They also add fiber into the diet.
  • Nuts. Hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, pecans — nuts are a good source of plant protein. They also contain monounsaturated fats, which may be a factor in reducing the risk of heart disease.

What You Will Learn About Survival Food Preparing

As expected, a quick Google search can turn up even the most obscure ingredient and avenue of purchase in a minute or less. Additionally, the book gently educates the reader about the specific foods and combinations suggested therein.

You’ll learn a little bit of trivia on the history, origin and uses of foods such as kudzu starch, pemmican, biltong, aaruul, Tarhana and much more.
