Hey Vanetta, congraulations on losing 70 lbs, that's incredible - it's a fifth grader!! Yay!
I absolutely loved the first super foods book - Super Foods Rx: 14 Foods That Will Change Your Life, it really made the science of nutrition accessible to me. There were lots of studies that were explained in simple terms so I could really understand why spinach was good for my eyes and blueberries were good for my brain and nuts were good for my heart.
I did like the second book, but I found it a little deriviative and redundant (it covers a lot of the same ground). I never bought the second book, I checked it out of the library to read and I photocopied all the good recipes
There is now a third book which has an additional author and is focused on losing weight with super foods. I checked it out of the library and I find it a lot more strict than my own approach (the new book includes: cut off times at night, portioning vegetables, lowish calorie range). It had some interesting information, but the first book is still my favorite.
I think your plan to eat more healthy, local, organic whole foods is GREAT!!
