Mindful Eating Cookbook
With recipes for peanut butter (made with carrots) and Caesar salad dressing (made with silken tofu), the spirit of Mindful Eating is not deprivation, but rather the use of unexpected techniques and flavor and texture blends combining to a gratifying effect. An entire chapter of the book contains mindful cocktail recipes, exemplifying the resort’s guiding philosophy that all choices, when made mindfully, are healthy and acceptable.
“The book is an honest presentation of spa cuisine. The recipes are well thought-out and balanced without a hint of deprivation of flavors. It’s obvious that Kim and Justin care about their craft and practice it well, as it’s evident on every page.”
