Discover the most delicious ways to eat healthier from around the world!

We all know that eating healthier is easier said than done. New diets pop up every few months; the only problem is that the food choices are often too bland and there's usually little variety in the dishes you can eat. 30 Secrets of the World's Healthiest Cuisines is about to change all that. In a delicious departure from the nutrition-through-sacrifice school of cooking, this book celebrates the international and the flavorful with a healthy twist. You'll find out how to use the most healthful nutritional principles and ingredients from the world's major cuisines to create one fabulous, healthy global eating program.

30 Secrets of the World's Healthiest Cuisines blends the latest nutrition research with information about the culinary histories and traditions of a number of major countries and regions around the world. By incorporating this culinary wisdom into your diet, you can reduce your chances of developing a number of major diet-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. You can also feel better, look better, and be happier. Packed with practical tips to increase the disease-fighting power of your diet, this book will:
* Reveal the healthy Mediterranean eating secrets that can help you lower your risk of heart disease
* Uncover the Chinese diet that has led to lower rates of cancer and diabetes in China
* Divulge the truth about how the French often enjoy rich sauces, triple-fat cheeses, red wine, duck-liver pate, and chocolate mousse and still stay thin and healthy
* Explain how Japanese dishes and drinks can potentially help you reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease
* Explore the wealth of vegetables and grains in the tasty foods of the west coast of Africa

With 86 recipes and several meal plans to choose from, 30 Secrets of the World's Healthiest Cuisines will make your diet a delicious and healthy one!

From Our Editors

Many people think there are two types of cooking in the universe: healthy cooking and good cooking. Well, the term ‘healthy cooking’ doesn’t have to be a paradox and authors Steven Jonas and Sandra Gordon’s cookbook proves it. Global Eating: The 30 Secrets of the World’s Healthiest and Most Delicious Cuisines features recipes and dietary secrets taken from many different cultures. Perhaps the book’s only flaw is that Antarctica’s fare is conspicuously absent from it — but last we heard, seal blubber wasn’t on the top ten list of healthy food choices anyway!
