The Healthy Kitchen: Recipes for a Better Body, Life, and Spirit
The Healthy Kitchen
Recipes for a Better Body, Life, and Spirit
Hardcover      ISBN: 0375413065

Two of America s most popular authorities on healthy eating and cooking join forces in this inspiring, easy-to-use cookbook. This is not a diet book. It is a lively guide to healthy cooking, day-by-day, packed with essential information and, above all, filled with enticing food.
Andrew Weil, M.D. author of the best-selling Eating Well for Optimum Health brings to this perfect collaboration a comprehensive philosophy of nutrition grounded in science. Rosie Daley acclaimed for her best-seller, In the Kitchen with Rosie brings to it her innovative and highly flavorful spa cuisine.
The recipes are eclectic, drawing from the healthy and delicious cooking of the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Asia, among other cuisines. For starters, you might try Grilled Satay or a Miso Pate; for soup, often a meal in itself, a hearty Mixed-Bean Minestrone Stew or a Roasted Winter Squash and Apple Soup with Cilantro Walnut Pesto; a special entree could be the Savory Roasted Cornish Hens with Roasted Garlic or Baked Spicy Tofu with Bean Thread Noodles, Corn, and Mango; for a simple supper, Turkey Burgers or Portobello Burgers; and for the occasional indulgence, a dessert of Almond Fruit Tart or Peach and Blueberry Cobbler.
Andy and Rosie do not always agree. When Rosie calls for chicken, Andy offers a tofu alternative; she likes the flavor of coconut milk, whereas he prefers ground nut milk; when she makes a pastry with butter, he suggests using Spectrum Spread. There are no hard-and-fast rules.
Lifelong health begins in the kitchen, so this is a lifestyle book as well as a cookbook. In it you will learn from Dr. Weil:
how to make use of nutritional information in everyday cooking
what is organic . . . and how to buy organic foods
the importance of reading labels and what to look for
sensible advice about eggs, milk, cheese, salt, spicy foods, wine, coffee
the facts about sugar and artificial sweeteners
. . . and from Rosie:
how to get kids involved from skinning almonds to layering lasagna
ways to have fun in the kitchen creating scallion firecrackers and radish rosettes
low-fat and nondairy alternatives for those with special concerns
smart menu planning letting the seasons be your guide
. . . and lots more.
This revolutionary book will change forever the way you cook for yourself and your family.
With 58 photographs in full color."

The Healing Cuisine of China: 300 Recipes for Vibrant Health and Longevity
The Healing Cuisine of China
300 Recipes for Vibrant Health and Longevity
Paperback      ISBN: 089281778x

A comprehensive guide to the Chinese art of healing with food

- Provides more than 300 authentic Chinese recipes for curing specific ailments and for promoting happiness and vitality

- Explains the theories behind traditional Chinese beliefs about health and diet and reconciles these beliefs with contemporary Western medical knowledge

- Includes a complete fitness program centered on the popular Chinese qi gong exercises

Through 5,000 years of recorded history the Chinese have developed an unequaled pharmacopoeia of food remedies and have turned this knowledge into a delicious cuisine that is simple to prepare. This cuisine has little in common with the dishes on the menus of many Chinese restaurants--which have sacrificed traditional Chinese principles to appeal to high-fat Western tastes. Instead, it emphasizes all-natural ingredients eaten in season and in the most beneficial combinations.

The Healing Cuisine of China features more than 300 authentic Chinese recipes, ranging from simple preparations to cure specific ailments to traditional longevity banquets. The authors also explain the underlying theories behind traditional Chinese beliefs about health and reconcile these ancient beliefs with Western medical knowledge about bacteria, viruses, and other causes of disease. A complete fitness program, centered on the popular Chinese qi gong exercises, and a questionnaire to help readers discover their individual body requirements make this the most comprehensive guide to the healthy lifestyle of China ever published.

Meals That Heal: A Nutraceutical Approach to Diet and Health
Meals That Heal
A Nutraceutical Approach to Diet and Health
Paperback      ISBN: 0892816252

Can a regular diet of tomatoes, soy products, and cruciferous vegetables help ward off cancer and heart disease? Can meals really heal? With increasing frequency scientific studies are responding with a resounding yes. It has been general knowledge for years that vitamin C prevents scurvy and calcium helps build strong bones. But this pales in comparison to recent discoveries concerning phytonutrients and nutraceuticals. Garlic, for example, contains compounds that may reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. Broccoli contains substances that may help prevent cancer. Meals That Heal takes the latest scientific data on these substances out of the lab and puts it into the kitchen.

Presents a compilation of the most recent research on the proven benefits of various foods along with charts and graphs that relate this research to specific diseases.

More than 100 recipes for creating healthy and delicious meals include the healing properties of the foods and the benefits we can obtain from them.
