Spanish Nutrition 101

Looking for books in Spanish that cover the basics of food and nutrition.

If it gets a little more into detail that's okay. A coworker, who admittedly knows nothing about nutrition, has asked me to help him find a book so he can learn. He recently had surgery for a pretty major health problem, almost died, and the doctor says he needs to change his eating habits. The book has to be in Spanish.

There are brochures that cover nutrition basics here, and it looks like at least one of Michael Pollan's books has been translated: Saber comer: 64 reglas basicas para aprender a comer bien. In Defense of Food has also apparently been translated, but I'm not seeing it in Amazon. Maybe interlibrary loan?

Diabetic Cooking for Latinos is bilingual, and is pretty awesome. It tends towards more Caribbean style and Central American than Spanish from Spain, if that matters. It does have a section on nutrition, I think. I can't find my copy right now... probably because my friends keep borrowing it....

Beyond Rice and Beans is bilingual as well, but I found the title a little obnoxious... there is also Viva Vegan! But that's just recipes.
