"Mexican Light: Healthy Cuisine For Today's Cook" by Kris Rudolph (owner of the El Buen Cafe in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico), is a bi-lingual cookbook that features a compendium of fifty delicious recipes that are presented side-by-side on facing pages with Spanish on the left and English on the right The focus is on pre-Columbian Mexican cuisine that was low in fat and high in fiber and vitamins. Ranging from appetizers to after-dinner refreshers, each palate pleasing, appetite satisfying dish not only includes the ingredients and the preparation instructions, but the number of calories, amounts of total fat and saturated fat, grams of carbohydrates, and amount of fiber. Low-fat and low-carbohydrate alternatives 9as well as ways to vary the degree of spiciness) are also provided. From Chayote and Chile Poblano Soup; Green Salad with Jicama, Manco, and Cucumber; and Chicken with Tomatillo Cilantro Salsa; to Beef in Avocado Salsa; Cauliflower with Spicy Tomatoes; and Amaranth Water, "Mexican Light" is an ideal and highly recommended culinary resource for diet conscious kitchen cooks wanting their friends and family to eat healthy while eating Mexican.
