This isn't just any cooking book. It has facts about the many things we eat and inadvertently put in our bodies. Many say food is to keep us alive. Thienna Ho has found that it is much more than that. Food is that which helps us live productive and healthy lives. We are what we eat and if we eat junk, our body will reflect this fact. Our hair, skin and energy will suffer if we are not giving our body the right kinds of food. Not only our inner and outer bodies will suffer but also our minds. When we are not healthy our minds too cloud up, and we have a hard time concentrating and making decisions.
In Cooking on the Light Side, the author will teach you, in easy understandable ways, the many facts that surround our food. Then she will help you learn how to get more for your money.
