The subtitle of Akhtar Nawab’s "Good for You" really resonates: "Bold Flavors with Benefits." Banishing antiquated vestiges of healthy eating as a “choice” between nutrition or flavor, Nawab delivers page after page of tantalizing recipes including numerous gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan dishes. It’s not surprising an “Indian kid from Kentucky” who ends up a classically trained chef cooking American, Mexican, and Italian food casts a wide net when it comes to ingredients, techniques, and influences. Nawab also infuses his personal wellness journey into "Good for You" in a manner that adds a poignant and relatable motif — with bumps along the way. His raisin salsa will forever transport your oatmeal to a sweet, savory, and spicy place that’s good for you.
