A feast of sushi, soups, and salads that satisfy and slim!

Research shows that the Japanese diet is one of the healthiest in the world. It’s balanced, slimming, and packed with superfoods and protein. Even better for Americans: Just one Japanese meal a day makes a difference. Sushi and the other Japanese recipes included in the book are light, fun, supremely tasty, and extraordinarily healthy. All use traditional ingredients such as miso, wasabi, fish, seaweed, and tea, as well as author Makiko Sanu’s “diamond” ingredients: Ginger is used for overall health; nori, for healthy hair; sesame seeds, for a youthful body; and vinegar, for its fat-busting properties. Foolproof directions and gorgeous, inspiring photography make losing weight and staying healthy simple.
