What's a book that is similar to Healing With Whole Foods
by Paul Pitchford, only less intense? My mom is into those 'blueberries will save the world' email forwards, and for her birthday I'd like to encourage her new obsession with healthy foods, teach her how to cook them, explain about health, etc.

Healing With Whole Foods is obviously the best book in the world, but I need a 'lite' version of this one, because I think it will be too daunting for my mom. What are some good books out there that explain what foods are good to help with specific problems (or general health)?
my mom is a good cook but it's more in the 'meat and potatoes' category, and she's looking to learn more about 'health' foods.
I'm looking for:
-food-based (not supplement or herb-based) book that has recipes and explanations about food
-accessible enough so my mom will ENJOY reading it
-NOT a particular miracle cure-style book (ie, no 'eat right for your blood type books, or anything of that genre)
