Opening with claims that eating fish will protect your heart, keep you smarter and happier, and improve your sex life, registered dietician and Self magazine contributing nutrition editor Jibrin (coauthor of The Life You Want) sets the bar high for this guide, with chef Forman contributing 100 approachable recipes. Expanding on the basic Mediterranean diet, Jibrin’s approach focuses on seafood and super-foods (such as berries, quinoa, and avocado) to help readers reach health and weight-loss goals. Tips on safe and sustainable foods enable readers to make more informed decisions when shopping as well as dining out. Forman’s recipes favor the familiar: Carrot Muffins, Broccoli Salad, Sweet Potato Gratin, and Haddock Tacos, plus healthy riffs on classics like baked catfish and fish sticks. Even novices will be able to prepare dishes like Trout in Paper with Summer Squash, Green Onion, and Basil or Cod, Cauliflower, and Pea Curry. Nutritional and portion information is provided for each dish, enabling devotees to stay focused. This informative and inspiring plan can help readers get healthy without expensive equipment or ingredients. Two 16 page, 4-color inserts.Agent: Peter Steinberg, the Steinberg Agency. (Mar.)
