Imagine having the ability to stop and possibly reverse skin imperfections, increase stamina, and harness physical strength. Many nutritional guides and dietary plans have complex solutions to a healthier you, but fail to produce results. Nutritional specialist, Thienna Ho, Ph.D. , is the first to shine a light on an essential nutrient needed to a clearer, brighter complexion and robust health. That secret is packed in her groundbreaking Cooking on the Light Side: Smart Recipes for Bright Skin and Vitality.

As a nutritional scientist and "superhuman" athlete who holds four Guinness World Records for physical endurance, Thienna is living proof that her program brings results. In addition, the healthy power of a highly concentrated sulfur diet has been used throughout the ages.

Although the answer to better health is simple, the execution and integration is the hardest part to master. This book shows you how to pack the key nutrients for healthy skin into every meal and snack with countless tips and guidelines throughout. In addition, Thienna shares nutritional and appetizing recipes that are incomparable in taste, low in calories and high in hidden fiber and nutrients. From learning the benefits of oat groats, to choosing the right fruit, to a Ham and Artichoke Quiche recipe, each page is overflowing with refreshing and appealing information. Thienna keenly integrates her text with eye-popping pictures and readers are left with a better understanding of wholesome foods... and a growling stomach. She comments, "Learn how every phase of the cooking process can contribute to great skin, from food purchase to the condiments you place on your table."

Along with countless recipes and useful charts, Cooking on the Light Side is the first to reveal Bruce Lee's successful dietary plan. All in all, Thienna's new cookbook is sure to transform the lives and health of those willing to take a walk on the "light side".
