The chef's name is Jim Coleman. It was a good show.
Ah.. I stumbled on his show one day while he was cooking the salmon on a cedar plank... it was a whole foods show.. I couldn't watch the whole thing as I was busy but I enjoyed watching him cook that salmon. It gave me the idea that when I cook salmon on the grill I don't have to turn it over... always been a problem.. fish baskets are hard to clean and are hard on the fish .. flipping breaks it anyway...

So since that show I put the salmon on a metal grate with little round holes, cook it slowly, and when its finished place the whole thing ...grate and all on a large thick wooden cutting board to serve.

The cedar planks sound great, though they are expensive.. Jim Coleman... Thanks for the info!!

140 calories sounds a lot more reasonable for a serving of 1/2 cup cooked


Sandi, thanks for offering to move this thread to the new Whole Foods Forum. I vote yes ..

Also are sweet potatoes and pupkins close enough to be consider having the same benefits?

The following is cut and paste from the website:

SUPERFOODS RX focuses on foods that are high in micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients) instead of macronutrients (fats, carbs, proteins).

The fourteen SuperFoods and their possible benefits:

Beans – lower cholesterol, combat heat disease, stabilize blood sugar, reduce obesity, relieve hypertension and lessen the risk of cancer.
Blueberries – lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, and help maintain healthy skin to reduce the sags and bags brought on by age.
Broccoli – boosts the immune system, lowers the incidence of cataracts, supports cardiovascular health, builds bones and fights birth defects.
Oats – lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of coronary heart disease & Type II diabetes, high in fiber and protein.
Oranges – support heart health and prevent cancer, stroke, diabetes and a host of chronic ailments.
Pumpkin – helps lower the risk of various cancers (lung, colon, bladder, cervical, skin, and breast) and supplies nutrients necessary for healthy, youthful skin.
Wild Salmon - lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Soy – helps prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis, and helps relieve menopausal and menstrual symptoms.
Spinach – decreases the chance of cardiovascular diseases, a host of cancers, age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
Tea – boosts the immune system, helps prevent cancer and osteoporosis, lowers the risk of stroke, promotes cardiovascular health.
Tomatoes – lower the likelihood of cancer, raise the skin’s sun protection factor and seem to play a role in preventing cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
Turkey – a perfect example of a Twenty-First Century "healthy" protein source, extremely low in fat, and provides multiple nutrients which help build a strong immune system.
Walnuts – reduce the risk of developing coronary heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
Yogurt – promotes strong bones and a healthy heart, another health promoting protein source, and a great source of calcium.
they are the lowest in calories
