The Mindful Kitchen

Chockful of yummy recipes, “The Mindful Kitchen” is a vegetarian (not vegan) delight. Ms. Thomas introduces us to the concept of bringing Nature back to our food and Nature back into our eating.

“You Are What You Eat”

While this concept is about plant-based eating and/or eating mindfully, it is also more. It is eating to become a caring part of Nature through a connection with our food.

Each Chapter – Eating for Vitality – Eating for Comfort – Eating for Creativity – Eating for Connection – Eating for Celebration is filled with lots of seasonal recipes, together with small rituals intended to bring us into more or a connection with the food we eat, why we eat it and how we can be more connected with both our food and the earth from whence it comes.

This book is full of beautiful, colorful illustrations of each recipe, designed to make you want to immediately run to the supermarket and buy what you need to make each one.

If you are looking to try eating vegetarian, being more mindful of what you eat and why, or bringing more spirituality to your plate, this is the book for you.
