The Whole Bowl: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Soups & Stews by Rebecca Wood and Leda Scheintaub. Countryman Press, January 2015, list price $16.95, 120 pages.
A compendium of delicious soup and stew recipes that just happen to be gluten-free and dairy-free, The Whole Bowl offers soups and stews using real food ingredients both familiar and new to restore, nourish, and heal the body. Leda and I share a philosophy about the deep nurturing power of real, wholesome food that translates into delicious everyday meals you’ll thrive on. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a die-hard meat-and-potatoes person, a vegan, or somewhere in between.
Gluten-free and dairy-free cookbooks abound these days, yet there’s not been a great book exclusively about soups and stews. Now, this satisfying book of recipes accompanied by gorgeous photos fills this gap.
Some of the dishes have a targeted healing mission, such as Cold Quell Soup, packed with pungent mustard greens. Others are comfort food fare, such as Easy Chicken Soup and Slow-Cooker Pork Tinga. A love for Asian food is evident, with recipes including Soba in a Basket and Mulligatawny Soup. Many are complete meals in a bowl, like Yucatan Turkey Thigh and Yucca Stew; while others can easily be expanded to feed a family. Soup accompaniments like cashew sour cream, amaranth flatbread, and cornbread complete the picture.
With helpful sidebars on everything from how to cook soba noodles to the nutritional benefits of bone broth, this book is a wonderful introduction to the world of traditional foods in the form of a cozy bowl of soup.
Read Your Face: Build Your Energy, Beauty and Health with Chinese Face Reading and 5 Element Diet Guide by Rebecca Wood. 127 page eBook, 76 photographs, Illustrations, Charts. $14.95.
The face is a canvas where all the systems of their body make their mark–from the inside out. Over centuries of observation, the Chinese have determined connections between certain facial features and the condition of internal organs; they have organized these correlations into an ancient system known as “face reading”. Using your facial features as guidelines for adjusting your diet, you can bring your organs back into vibrant health. As your organs come into harmony, so will other aspects of your life, bringing increased creativity, alertness, emotional stability, and calm peace of mind. You will feel the difference —and your friends will see the difference. Who would have thought that the mirror could be your window into a healthier, happier life!
The unique advantage of this system is that you yourself can track the effects of changes you make. No need to wonder whether this or that is “good” for you or whether an organ is suffering; you will learn to see for yourself. And you will learn what to do to achieve the health you want.
Read Your Face is a unique book by a uniquely qualified author. Rebecca has been reading faces for more than 40 years; she has been studying diet and its impact on health for longer than that. In this book she shares what she has learned in terms that you can use to diagnose your own health issues and then restore harmony throughout your body. Read Your Facewill sharpen your awareness and deepen your understanding of not just how the body works but how yourbody works. You need to know what is good for YOU. Your mirror will become your best friend as you learn how to interpret what your organs are telling you in the lines and colors of your complexion.
