The Network for a Healthy California—Latino Campaign invites you to discover the zesty flavors and enticing aromas of healthy Latino cooking. This cookbook provides family favorites that use a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, while keeping the amount of fat, added sugars, and sodium per serving within healthy guidelines. Eating the right amount of fruit and vegetables as part of a lowfat, high fiber diet may lower your risk of serious problems like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. The amount of fruits and vegetables that is right for you depends on your age, gender, and physical activity level. View the Recommended Cups of Fruits and Vegetables chart on pages 5 and 6 to find out how many cups of fruits and vegetables each person in your family needs.
