Can't stomach spinach? Salmon too expensive? Broccoli make you hold your nose? These foods and 11 others profiled in SuperFoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life, by Steven Pratt, M.D., and Kathy Matthews (William Morrow, 2004), have been shown to help prevent a variety of illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Fortunately, 12 of the 14 have readily available alternatives that provide most if not all of the same health benefits. (Tea and beans are the two superfoods with no comparable cousins.) Here's a list to take to the store with you. --S.C.
