If you need some pep talk for your soul, this book might do the trick. However, its main point, actual FOOD nourishment guidelines for your soul, was a bit extreme for me. I am not interested in testing her postulation that grains combined with proteins/fats are the hardest combination to digest and should therefore be avoided! I am not interested in cleansing myself by eating only veggies and fruits for a week. However, I will give her this: she is right to emphasize the need to listen to your ...more
One of my favorite books of all time. Really teaches you about the connection of food and body.
This book describes a dietary cleanse, the goal of which is to purify the body and spirit. I have not actually done the cleanse, so this review should be taken with a grain of salt for now.

I wish I'd skipped the first chapter. The point is to describe why the cleanse is a good thing that people should do. I do not need this motivation - I already think cleanses are good. The language in this book is also very floofy. I'll look up a random sentence now: "When you're aligned with your spirit, your
I already knew alot of the stuff in this book, so i skimmed over some of it and then read some chapters.
I reall liked that it was written from her own experiences (she works in the nutrition field) and I love that she wants you to listen to your body. Not everything works for everyone and all of our bodies change over time. Also she talks about NOT DIETING. She approaches it from the perspective of feeding your body AND mind.
Also there are recipes at the end, although I dont see myself making t
I enjoyed the book but I was hoping for a slightly more scientific study based analysis of processed foods and what they are doing to the body. This book has a much more spiritual focus on nourishment and what that actually means for a person as whole, not just nutritionally. I may still try the cleanse to see how it makes me feel. Overall a little too new age spiritualism for my taste, but if that's what you are looking for it's a great book.
I really love the idea of this book - mindfulness and nutrition. Unfortunately, there was just enough new-agey psychobabble and testimonials to get on my nerves. There was some good information in it about healthy food and food combinations (remarkably similar to some ayurvedic principles - unattributed) and the cleansing instructions seemed sane, including healthy foods and flexibility. The recipes didn't look too bad either.

It started out so good with the whole nourishing verses consuming, and again I want to eat locally, buy seasonally blah blah and this book is seven years old but she spends half the text repeating herself and a good half of the book talking about cleansing - yknow extreem fasting, I don't care how else you lable it but its not for me. I just wnat to learn how to feed myself for the next 100 years...
I'm giving this four stars because it's the only book I've picked up so far that deals with food and spirituality. it's not kooky, although a big part of the book is about fasting. Fasting, to be honest, freaks me out but this book advocates eating just veggies for a week or so.

Lots of neat ideas, I need to re-read. there are also recipes that I've yet to look over.
This is a nice primer on mindful eating with a cleanse I've been dying to try, but I'm going to wait until I wean the baby (don't need all of those toxins coming out in the breast milk). The cleanse recipes are all eastern and Mediterranean in origin, and though I'm not big on Asian food, there is plenty here that appeals to me.
Transformational Nourishment...Eating vs. Feeding, Who are you Feeding? If the Buddah came to dinner at your home, what would you serve?...Chances are you'd feed your honored guest a delicious meal prepared with love and care. But the next time you have dinner, what will you eat? This is a really great book.

I found many of her ideas interesting (and others less so). She offers new perspectives on eating that I found useful in considering my own relation to food. I think most people would walk away from this book with a few useful thoughts. There are also some tasty recipes in the back.
A spiritual journey into the concept of 'nourishment'. It's an opportunity to change the way that we perceive the food that we fix and learn how to build health from the most simple of practices. This is one that I will definitely buy for my bookshelf. AND recipes are included! YUM!
This was very interesting and I think I will enjoy the recipes in the back of the book. I'm not sure if I completely buy all of this spiritual nourishment stuff, but I think that she has an interesting approach to eating. I look forward to experimenting with her suggestions.

The book places emphasis on caring for yourself. A good message! There a few times I thought ideas were explained for too long. But the underlying point was always very true. A good cleanse plan and great recipes.
Rebecca Thompson
this book is about nourishment - in every sense of the word. I learned about my relationship with food and the impact my life has had on my ability to nourish myself with awareness, openness and life-giving care.
Interesting comments on nourishment and different ways of determining what nourishes you. A very easy read and written in a way that gently introduces you to the concept of nourishment (vs. dieting).
This book will teach you how to treat yourself right. And in essence, know yourself (through your desires and needs). I only lament that my breath smells like tea more than anything else now.

Recommends it for: anyone into simple food... anyone!
Made me think about how vital foods are in having a balanced life. how we fuel are bodies is a reflection of how we nourish ourselves. goooooooood book.
I agree with her on almost everything. I may use just a few word replacements, but I may just have to buy my own copy and highlight half of it.
It was good. As long as I come away with something @ finish the book it's good.
