📒Life And Food In The Caribbean ✍ Cristine MacKie
📝Life and Food in the Caribbean Book Synopsis : The West Indian kitchen today, five hundred years after Columbus, is a wonderful blend of flavors and cooking styles. The islands are blessed with some of the richest soils in the world, and the different peoples who have settled there have developed a vibrant hybrid cuisine. Scottish rebels, enslaved Africans, indentured Portuguese and Chinese, and finally the East Indians all of these brought with them their traditional foods and cooking techniques. This book takes as its framework the stratified history of the islands from the early times of European exploration to the present day. The author draws extensively on original sources, such as diaries, which describe voyages from the China Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Atlantic, and the implantation of new lives in the islands. She has collected recipes from the differing cuisines of all the peoples who live on the islands, and she portrays the way of life that has developed through the generations. She writes: "The Caribbean is an esthetic as full of emotion as a work of art. The air you breathe, the light that fills you, the myriad voices of nature and the past, the soil that provides for you-all these, wrapped together, are expressed in the kitchen."
📒The Versatile Vegetable ✍ Miranda Barrett
📝The Versatile Vegetable Book Synopsis : The Versatile Vegetable is not just another cookbook. Even though it is filled with exquisitely delicious and simple recipes, it also educates and inspires you to make any changes needed to support good health and heal the body. In Miranda's simple, yet humorous way, you are led on a journey that will encourage an abundance of vegetables to come into your life. You will also learn why the condiments used in cooking, such as salt, oils and seasonings, play an intricate part in your health. The changes are simple and subtle, yet so powerful in their result, that you will truly be inspired to transform some basic cooking skills. "We are born with one body. If we do not treat that body with love and respect, it will die, and then we will have nowhere to live." This book offers an array of simple, yet delicious recipes for vegetable dishes that can be incorporated easily into your daily life. Miranda realizes that time is always a concern, meaning that quick and easy was the only way her recipes could be of service. She has also included nutritional information that will help guide you in choosing what oils or fats to use or what seasonings to flavor with. Her approach is to use foods in their most natural state. A great analogy lies in the process of buying clothes: Before paying for a new shirt, we tend to look at the label, check out the size or what it's made of, even before trying it on. If only we paid this much attention to the labels on food. Often we eat foods without even glancing at the list of ingredients, especially in this age of convenience and processing. To Miranda, this is a lot more worrying than buying a shirt a few sizes too big because we did not look at the label. The food we eat goes much deeper than the surface of the skin. You may also notice that she has chosen not to use certain ingredients in the recipes. You will not find any gluten, wheat products or refined sugars used in the book. Instead, Miranda has substituted with healthier options, suggested certain oils and flavorings, so that every part of each dish is beneficial. In her book, Miranda elaborates on the following topics, discussing them in length and suggesting a variety of excellent methods to keep the colon healthy: Digestion- a gut feeling and sometimes it doesn't feel so good. Constipation and how to eliminate it. The use of Probiotics, also known as friendly bacteria. Fats and Oils. Fats, sounds like a dirty word nowadays. Most people don't want fat, especially any extra on their bodies, so why would Miranda connect them to healing and encourage you to eat them? Because certain fats are essential to our health. In her book, Miranda separates the good oils from the bad and deciphers the potential health benefits of using the right kinds of oils. Additional sections include: How to Eat. Chewing. Regular Meals. Food Rotation. And the truth about Salt. Miranda also offers inventive alternatives for unhealthy ingredients which dramatically improve the nutritional value of an otherwise decadent dish, yet with all the flavor still remaining. The result is both a worthy and an artful skill, one that you will undoubtedly enjoy time after time while using "The Versatile Vegetable."

📒Food For Life ✍ Loyle Shannon Jung
📝Food for Life Book Synopsis : Food for Life draws on L. Shannon Jung's gifts as theologian, ethicist, pastor, and eater extraordinaire. In this deeply thoughtful but very lively book, he encourages us to see our humdrum habits of eating and drinking as a spiritual practice that can renew and transform us and our world. In a fascinating sequence that takes us from the personal to the global, Jung establishes the religious meaning of eating and shows how it dictates a healthy order of eating. He exposes Christians' complicity in the face of widespread eating disorders we experience personally, culturally, and globally, and he argues that these disorders can be reversed through faith, Christian practices, attention to habitual activities like cooking and gardening, the church's ministry, and transforming our cultural policies about food.

📒The Food Revolution ✍ John Robbins
📝The Food Revolution Book Synopsis : In 1987, John Robbins published Diet for a New America, which was an early version of this book, and he started the food revolution. He continues to work tirelessly to promote conscious food choices more than 20 years later. First published in 2001, The Food Revolution is still one of the most frequently cited and talked about books of the food-politics revolution. It was one of the very first books to discuss the negative health effects of eating genetically modified foods and animal products of all kinds, to expose the dangers inherent in our factory farming system, and to advocate a complete plant-based diet. The bok garnered endorsements by everyone from Paul Hawken to Neal Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson to Julia Butterfly Hill. After ten years in print, The Food Revolution is timelier than ever—and a very compelling read. The 10th anniversary edition has an updated, new contemporary look and a new introduction by the author.
📒Food For Life ✍ F. Deatherage
📝Food for Life Book Synopsis : This book is addressed to the university student who is not a science major and to the general reader. An attempt is made to present an integrated view of some of the basic concepts of physical, biological, and social sciences relevant to the problem of providing people with food. The application of these disciplines has led to our present technologies of medicine, agriculture, and food science on which modern civilization rests. Technical information concerning foods has increased enormously in the less than a century that the basic concepts of the science of nutrition have been recognized. Scientific agriculture to provide food for an ever-growing population is scarcely a century and a half old. Feeding oneself is a very personal matter, and at the same time feeding large groups is the concern of society as a whole. Therefore, it is understandable that, in one way or another, the problems offood produc tion and distribution underlie the actions of politicians, bureaucrats, the leaders of government, and business managers. These situations of our modern life make rational and sound solutions to food problems difficult and often contribute to alarmism founded on partial scientific "truth" taken out of context. The trend toward more "consumerism" is unmistakable. But to serve the individual best, such movements must be based on sound judgments and reasoned scientific principles rather than on the often emotional compromises of opportunistic politicians, lawyers, and businessmen. That man requires wholesome, nutritious food is indisputable.

The other chapters, each with a particular reference to the main foods of the five sectors under study, have a common structure which entails the review of LCA case studies of such agri-food products, the methodological issues, the ways with which they have been faced and the suggestion of practical guidelines.
📒Simple Food For The Good Life ✍ Helen Nearing
📝Simple Food for the Good Life Book Synopsis : Fifty years before the phrase "simple living" became fashionable, Helen and Scott Nearing were living their celebrated "Good Life" on homesteads first in Vermont, then in Maine. All the way to their ninth decades, the Nearings grew their own food, built their own buildings, and fought an eloquent combat against the silliness of America's infatuation with consumer goods and refined foods. They also wrote or co-wrote more than thirty books, many of which are now being brought back into print by the Good Life Center and Chelsea Green. Simple Food for the Good Life is a jovial collection of "quips, quotes, and one-of-a-kind recipes meant to amuse and intrigue all of those who find themselves in the kitchen, willingly or otherwise." Recipes such as Horse Chow, Scott's Emulsion, Crusty Carrot Croakers, Raw Beet Borscht, Creamy Blueberry Soup, and Super Salad for a Crowd should improve the mood as well as whet the appetite of any guest. Here is an antidote for the whole foods enthusiast who is "fed up" with the anxieties and drudgeries of preparing fancy meals with stylish, expensive, hard-to-find ingredients. This celebration of salads, leftovers, raw foods, and homegrown fruits and vegetables takes the straightest imaginable route from their stem or vine to your table. "The funniest, crankiest, most ambivalent cookbook you'll ever read," said Food & Wine magazine. "This is more than a mere cookbook," said Health Science magazine: "It belongs to the category of classics, destined to be remembered through the ages." Among Helen Nearing's numerous books is Chelsea Green's Loving and Leaving the Good Life, a memoir of her fifty-year marriage to Scott Nearing and the story of Scott's deliberate death at the age of one hundred.

📒Ikaria ✍ Diane Kochilas
📝Ikaria Book Synopsis : The remote and lush island of Ikaria in the northeastern Aegean is home to one of the longest-living populations on the planet, making it a "blue zone." Much of this has been attributed to Ikaria's stress-free lifestyle and Mediterranean diet--daily naps, frequent sex, a little fish and meat, free-flowing wine, mindless exercise like walking and gardening, hyper-local food, strong friendships, and a deep-rooted disregard for the clock. No one knows the Ikarian lifestyle better than Chef Diane Kochilas, who has spent much of her life on the island. Part cookbook, part travelogue, Kochilas's Ikaria is an introduction to the food-as-life philosophy and a culinary journey through luscious recipes, gorgeous photography, and captivating stories from locals. Capturing the true spirit of the island, Kochilas explains the importance of shared food, the health benefits of raw and cooked salads, the bean dishes that are passed down through generations, the greens and herbal teas that are used in the kitchen and in the teapot as "medicine," and the nutritional wisdom inherent in the ingredients and recipes that have kept Ikarians healthy for so long. Ikaria is more than a cookbook. It's a portrait of the people who have achieved what so many of us yearn for: a fuller, more meaningful and joyful life, lived simply and nourished on real, delicious, seasonal foods that you can access anywhere.
