The authors of health and diet cookbooks are motivated to choose one topic for by many different reasons. Many have experienced difficulties of their own and want to share hard-won success with others. Many are exuberant life-lovers who plunge into what we call health foods with an air of discovering new foods and new ways of combining foods. Some provide healthy menus; many present quickly cooked recipes as fresh fruits and vegetables cook quickly.
