Shoku-Iku is the way that Japanese people are taught about healthy food. This book reveals the secrets to how the Japanese stay so healthy in easy-tofollow principles so you, too, can learn to eat mindfully, the Shoku-Iku way. Each of the five recipe chapters centers on one cooking method: steaming (or microwaving); grilling; simmering; nocook; and sushi. The seventy brand-new simple recipes are largely gluten and dairy free; and the clear and graphic illustrated spreads show you how to choose which vegetables, fish or grains to eat in order to optimize your health and help with specific ailments.

Makiko Sano grew up in Tokyo, Japan, where she was immersed in cooking from a young age. Her cooking inspiration comes from the females in her family: her mother, grandmother and her aunts, their bustling Japanese kitchens and food styles. Her family was all about preparing meals from scratch. She has lived in London for the past 20 years with her four children. Makiko's restaurant, Suzu, specializes in Japanese tapas, including traditional sushi, sashimi, and tempura as well as dishes that she has created herself.
