Chef Alain Braux’s approach to healthy eating is literally “down to earth” in this delightful and extremely useful guide to balanced, nutritious meals on a budget. With a passion for flavor and fresh ingredients, Braux takes us through an eye-opening grocery shopping experience (including the 12 most contaminated foods in the produce section, and what “natural” really means on food labels), to alternative shopping choices (farmers’ markets, growing your own). Inspired by the foods he grew up with in his native France, Chef Braux’s recipes will not only sate the appetite, but can feed a family of four for less than $40 per day! A truly valuable guide to nutrition, plus who knew French cooking could be so affordable!
