A Caribbean Diet
This is a guide to the health benefits of exotic food from the Caribbean, offering advice about what to look for when buying, and how to prepare and cook New World foods with success. The book provides a history of foods from the region: where they originated, the type of people who brought them to a particular island, and their uses in cooking today. Recipes, all under 500 calories, are linked to diet charts and nutrient tables, with exact energy values quoted for over 100 individual ingredients. A "Caribbean Workout" section contains exercises such as the Mango stretch and the Arawak limbo. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
