"Real Food Has Curves" by Bruce Weinstein & Mark Scarbrough
The subtitle is "How to Get Off Processed Food, Lose Weight and Love What You Eat." The authors' premise is that chemicals in our brain expect real food when we eat. When we eat processed and fake food, our brain prompts us to eat more in hopes of getting real food. Lots of good information on buying oils, cheeses and using herbs and spices in place of salt and sugar. Easy, non-intimidating recipes as well.
From the flyleaf "...seven-step journey to rediscover the basic pleasure of fresh, well-prepared natural ingredients: curvy, voluptuous, juicy, sweet savory.
