The Self-Healing Cookbook
- Sep 30th 2009
Cookbooks tend to have recipes, some lovely images and a few cute anecdotes, others you can read like a regular book. The Self-Healing Cookbook by Kristina Turner is more like the latter.
The back cover describes the book as “Here’s a whole foods cookbook that makes good bedtime reading! This playful user-friendly primer blends the wisdom of macrobiotics, the psychology of self-esteem, and a planetary view of healing.”
Don’t be scared off by macrobiotics, all the recipes I’ve tried from this book have been really good and easy to make. There’s over 130 recipes that don’t use dairy or sugar, they’re also low fat and delicious.
This book is a great way to help encourage anyone to eat better and to take better care of themselves, I lend a copy to to all my clients to teach them about food choices and most of them go out and get their own copy. The section on food and mood alone is worth getting the book. Don’t be swayed by the “hippie” design, the information it offers is intelligent and useful.
Check it out next time you’re at the bookstore, you might learn something new.
