Latin American food is delicious, but it can also be overly fried and high in sugars and carbohydrates. Johana seeks to break the molds and inspire mothers, fathers, and any food lover to recreate healthier versions of their favorite recipes, from including ground flaxseed in her tamales, to substituting rice for quinoa in a delicious seafood paella.
In her opinion, however, learning how to cook healthy dishes is only half the battle. Understanding the importance of eating healthy is the most essential part of her message. When she, her husband, and young son were diagnosed with health problems, she decided to change her lifestyle and the quality of the food that she was putting on her table. Thanks to that, Johana was able to reverse her family’s health problems.
In addition to the delicious recipes, the book also includes a food substitution guide, ideas for feeding children, and Johana's best tips to start living a healthier life. Foreword by José Fernandez.
