Publisher Comments:

Eat.Taste.Heal is a groundbreaking work within the field of holistic health and nutrition, written by a medical doctor, a patient, and an acclaimed chef. A complete guidebook and cookbook in one, Eat.Taste.Heal demystifies the ancient healing science of Ayurveda, humankind's most ancient system of healthy living. The aim of the book is simple: to create harmony within through using common foods and healthy lifestyle practices as medicine. The collection contains over 150 cross-cultural recipes and received a Maverick Award for excellence in photography. The authors are a unique trio: physician, patient, and chef. Dr. Thomas Yarema M.D., director of the Kauai Center for Holistic Medicine and Research, created for his patients an understandable dietary program rooted in common sense. Daniel Rhoda, a patient who found healing through Ayurveda, demystifies the ancient science that helped restore his health. Chef Johnny Brannigan, an internationally trained Ayurvedic chef, has created more than 150 recipes to empower individual healing through the exploration of taste.

Review:

"Holistic physician Yarema, patient Rhoda and chef Brannigan contribute their individual perspectives on India's ancient medical science, ayurveda, to this attractive volume. Introduced to the system by different routes (disillusionment with Western medical practices, illness and transcendental meditation, respectively), the authors detail an array of ayurvedic techniques (diet, breathing, meditation, exercise, aromatherapy). Much more than a cookbook, this guide can serve as a complete introduction to ayurveda. Readers will learn how to identify their ayurvedic type; detect and treat imbalances and illness; select foods, daily routines and activities best for them; adapt to seasonal and aging patterns; and, most importantly, put the power to heal in their own hands. Based on cuisines from around the globe, the recipes demonstrate how to vary ayurvedic meals to nurture each of the ayurvedic types. The tempting selections include Roasted Sunflower Pt, Gnocchi with Pumpkin Sauce, Seared Sesame Trout with Coconut Curry Sauce, and Mango and Passion Fruit Cheesecake. The recipes are easy to follow and require little preparation time. The authors stress that adopting an ayurvedic lifestyle requires time, commitment and much self-inquiry, but make an enthusiastic and persuasive case for doing so. Color photos."

Best all in one Ayurvedic intro to the subject and amazing cookbook with clear basics...And i've seen alot of them. Recipes and authors tone of voice is applicable to our modern day. This book is very usable and I would recommend even to non Ayurvedic friends because the recipes are so good.
