Diet and nutrition books are perennials, but have you noticed a subtle shift? There seems to be a surge of books where the message about health and wellness collides nicely with common sense. That’s the kind of diet we like and it’s what chef Mike Mcenearney is on about in his latest book Real Food by Mike (Hardie Grant Books, $45). The recipes — like this salted kale, chickpea and green tahini salad — are achievable and side notes tell you why the dish is good for you. If better health isn’t reason enough to get into the kitchen, you’ll just have to do it for the taste.
