EATING TO LIVE (New book Says 14 `Superfoods' Key to a longer, healthier)

THE secret to longevity lies in the supermarket. According to "SuperFoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life" (William Morrow, $24.95), some foods will not only improve your life - but may well extend it.

Beans, blueberries, broccoli, oats, oranges, pumpkin, salmon, soy, spinach, tea, tomatoes, turkey, walnuts and yogurt - all rich in nutrients and relatively low in calories - are all credited with preventing, and in some cases even reversing, heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers and dementia.

Most of those foods have been in my diet for the past year. Especially blueberries, yogurt, salmon (and sardines), turkey, nuts and broccoli.

I have cut out nearly all processed foods and I feel great. I really need to drink more tea and have more beans and oranges. Pumpkin...don't know how I can work that into my daily diet. Any ideas?

Try Pacific salmon. Actually, it's pretty good out of Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Morro Bay, Bodega Bay, and probably almost anywhere else along the coast line. And that's just California. Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, all has good salmon.

I love everything on the list except for the 's' words, soy and salmon. Those are yucky.

Pumpkin can be really good. Have you ever had Afghan food? I love their pumpkin dishes (kadu) It has a little bit of a tangy yoghurt on it.

By the way, if you can't get pumpkin, get sweet potato. I think that is just as beneficial, if not more so.

>A heavy diet of beans will keep more than disease away.

A heavy diet of beans will accustom a person's body to digesting beans, same as anything else.

except I'm not convinced that soy is such a good thing.

I have heard rumours about this - that soy products all the time are bad for the metabolism and thyroid. Does anyone have information?

You are right on about the complex carbs. A lot of Atkins people overlook the fact that there are actually GOOD carbs.

I do eat sweet potato a lot, usually when I have turkey (which is often this time of year).

I get all the blueberries I want from my daughter's farm freezer and lift weights. Retirement is great!

Dunno about that, but I've read that soy has been the object of much marketing hype simply because it's so plentiful, and that it's not all it's cracked up to be because it's not a quality protein source the way legumes are, for example. I'll occasionally use tofu, but for use on my breakfast cereal, I've abandoned soy milk in favor of rice milk. Tastes better (to me), too.

I see Oscar Mayer Sandwich Spread did not make the list this time.

Neither did Spam or ring bologna. What's going on, here?

The best part about this post is that now I don't have to go and buy the book.
