With the information included in this book, you will be well equipped to make healthy food choices and prepare nutritious meals for you and your family. Food for the Soul: Traditional Jewish Wisdom for Healthy Eating addresses nutrition and health from a Jewish perspective. The nutrition information is universal, but tailored to the Jewish population’s specific needs – kashrut, lifestyle, Shabbat and holidays, fast days and the unique Jewish culture of food.

Chana Rubin provides kosher and sound dietary advice in bite-size tasty nuggets. This book gives excellent science-based nutritional counsel in a way that improves your health while enriching your soul. I heartily recommend it.

Jewish cooking can be heavy, while healthy cookbooks too often are heavy handed. Food for the Soul is a most welcome compilation of thoughtful nutrition, dietary information and representative recipes geared towards a Jewish lifestyle. Food for the Soul is not a cookbook per se, but rather a guidebook for adapting to a healthier lifestlye. Chana Rubin proves that Jewish food, based on eating foods that are tasty and good, can be healthy and delicious.
