If you desire to eat healthy, then this book is for you.   Author Jane Ibbetson, a nutritionist and educator, offers simple guide to healthy eating with the end of improving quality of life and high level of wellness.   Jane’s book to me is really a smart book for smart people.  We hear new names of diets almost every week and we get sick and tired of being treated as “gullible and confused consumers”.   All we need is a good advice and tips to eating healthy, along with taste-tested recipes — as simple as that, as smart as that.   So I love this book for all the smart reasons — foods that heal, choosing the healthy fats, information on trans-fats, glycemic index, quasi-vitamins and yes, more than 125 recipes.   I already bookmarked and included in my to-do list:  Bulgogi, Succotash with Barbecue Sauce, Daily Instant Miso Soup, and Avocado Tuna Salad.
