The Book on Healthy Cooks

If we really are what we eat, it appears that Americans who cook at home are looking to be a lot healthier. At least the ones who buy cookbooks, that is. Half of the Top 10 best-selling cookbooks so far this year stress health, wellness and dieting. Two of them aren’t even about eating solid foods: "The Healthy Green Drink Diet" (No. 7) and "The Juicing Bible" (No. 9). Still, the top two sellers throw caution to the wind, as the hugely popular Ina Garten (aka, the Barefoot Contessa) takes the No. 1 spot on the list, and Bobby Deen (son of Paula) follows just behind. Proving, we suppose, that we are a little bit of everything.
