Heaven's Banquet : Vegetarian Cooking for Lifelong Health the Ayurveda Way
Miriam Kasin Hospodar

Ayurveda, a 3,000 year old Indian science ensuring the total health of mind, body, and spirit, is one of the fastest growing alternative health models today. Publications from Vegetarian Times and Prevention Magazine to Business Week herald the growth of interest in Ayurveda-- a $2 billion market-- and the Maharishi Ayur-Veda Institute is the preeminent marketer of Ayurvedic products in the U.S. and worldwide. Research shows that Ayurvedic practices strengthen the body, enhance the immune system, and perform a wide range of preventative functions. Miriam Hospodar's twenty-year culinary journey has culminated in a major work that is as inspiring as it is comprehensive. Heaven's Banquet offers an accessible, informed, and passionate approach to transforming your cooking, and your health, with Ayurvedic principles. The recipes come from all over the world --Europe and the Mediterranean; China, Japan, Southeast Asia; the Jewish and Middle Eastern culinary traditions; and the Americas. Hospodar has guidance for the "new vegetarian" and for those cooking on "terrible schedules." She offers options for sugar-free, salt-free, dairy-free, and wheat-free diets, and provides a full complement of recipes in every category-- from appetizers and finger foods through main courses and desserts. Heaven's Banquet is a cookbook with a philosophy, a voice, and a mission. It is a landmark work that will be a standard for years, even generations, to come.

Cooking the Whole Foods Way: Your Complete, Everyday Guide to Healthy, Delicious Eating With 500 Recipes, Menus, Techniques, Meal Planning, Buying Tips, Wit & Wisdom
Christina Pirello

Christina Pirello turned to a whole-foods diet after being diagnosed with terminal leukemia at age 26. To the shock of her doctors, and without any medical treatment, she went into complete remission. She was surprised herself, as she'd been a vegetarian for more than 10 years and wasn't convinced that cutting prepackaged foods, sugar, and dairy from her diet would make that much of a difference to her health.
Pirello says, "Macrobiotics is an understanding that that food is energy, that everything we eat becomes part of us and helps create who we become." With this philosophy in mind, she advises how to plan menus, shop for quality ingredients, and combine foods for optimum energy. She then jumps right into her collection of more than 500 recipes, among them Fresh Corn Chowder, Béchamel Sauce, and Chocolate Hazelnut Torte. They should appeal to entire families; beans, tofu, and sea vegetables do figure prominently in many dishes, but rarely have these much-maligned ingredients sounded so tantalizing. Pirello's sassiness, adventuring spirit, and lust for life are readily apparent in these recipes, and her book should certainly help make the transition to a whole-foods lifestyle a smooth one. --Erica Jorgensen
