It is quite rare to find a book or magazine that offers advice on health and wellness with attention to savory African foods. This book explores the essentials of a healthful diet for everyone, and gives Africans and non-African cooks and adventurous eaters tips on how to enjoy African meals with a healthy twist in order to lose excess weight and prevent disease.

Review:

After reading Healthful Eating for the African from cover to cover, I am convinced that it should be required reading for anyone who enjoys African food and would like to eat their way into a healthier life. Written by a physician, this book breaks down complex facts about the interplay between nutrition and disease into simple consumable bites. It offers examples and illustrations of how readers can decrease their risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer among others, by enjoying carefully prepared African food. --Frederick Korley,M.D. Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine, Johns Hopkins University
