Part lifestyle guide, part cookbook, chef Johana Clavel's first book, Cocina latina ligera, is a compilation of approximately 120 Latin American recipes turned healthy, and inspired by her mission to spread her first-hand knowledge of whole foods, nutrition and home cooking. [English translation of title: Light Latin Cooking] Latin American food is delicious, but can also be overly fried, high in gluten and loaded with sugar. Johana seeks to break the mold and inspire home cooks, mothers and conscientious eaters to embrace healthier versions of the recipes they already love. Whether it is rewriting a tamale recipe to include ground flaxseed, or substituting the rice for quinoa in a seafood paella, Johana gives her readers a taste of what is possible when we choose to eat fresh, varied and whole foods - the Latino way. However, learning to cook delicious meals is, to her, only half the battle. Understanding the importance of healthy eating, for you and for everyone around you, is the most vital part of her message. As a young teenager, she was diagnosed with a chronic heart condition, in which she repeatedly suffered terrifying episodes of cardiac syncope and was told she would have to be medicated for life. To make matters worse, her husband and young son were both facing health issues, too. She took matters into her own hands and triumphantly reversed all three health conditions that afflicted her small family - and all by embracing different lifestyle choices and changing the quality of food she set on the table.
