This book started off so well. It opened with comments about how there is no one diet that will suit everyone due to biochemical individuality and the importance of understanding that a calorie of protein, fat or carbs each has a different effect on the body metabolically. Good stuff to start with and I thought I was in for a good read.

But then, things got bizarre and I felt a huge urge to back away from it slowly without making eye contact.

Wowsers. It is nuttier than a nutbar in parts.

If you are into meditation and balancing your chakras, this book will teach you everything about eating right for your chakras. There's a list of foods that depletes the chakras, another that activates and balances them and recipes for each of the seven chakras.

If you don't know about chakras, Chakra Foods for Optimum Health will be the ideal introductory primer and an excellent healt food guide.

I really wanted to like this book. I really tried to like this book. I have taken a class from the author. I teach yoga - I understand chakras and energy - I'm into nutrition and cooking. But this book just didn't work for me. First, it just felt too 'out there' for me - and I have a pretty open mind these days. Second, there weren't a lot of references to back up her claims about how certain foods support certain chakras.

There are some good and helpful take aways from the book - but don't expec

This book is EXCELLENT! I am fundamentally resistent to "diet" plans ... popular or not. It occurred to me that the government's "eat a rainbow a day" emphasis could work with feeding the human energy field in a way that would support energetic balance and health. Right after that epiphany, I saw a segment on Dr. Oz about it, and decided that was confirmation of what I had intuited that had just resonated with every part of me. I decided to search for "chakra diets" and found this book listed on ...more

This is an interesting book because it provides an insight into self and body. Dr. Minich provides a questionnaire for each of the body's seven chakras. Then one can determine what areas of body and energy need possible changes to diet for better health and energy.

This book is way better than I expected. It is a good link between spirituality and eating, for anyone, whether you believe in chakras or not. There are some recipes in the back, but I have never tried them. The information was awesome though!

I LOVE this book. It changed the way I view food and my relationship with it. I'd always felt intuitively that there was a spiritual component to selecting, preparing and eating food. The book clearly expressed in articulated terms things that I had felt but never vocalized. The ideas presented in this book resonated with me and make a positive impact on my life. The recipes in the back are more like guidelines than specific recipes. I usually just use them as a starting point/inspiration for ne ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book in pieces and parts. There's a great quiz inside that focuses you on what Chakra you should work on in your current state of mind, then you can read sections based on which one of your charkras needs some work. They give some background, some science and then some suggestions. The recipes in the back aren't really worth much, but the mantras and ideas are inspiring. Enjoy!
