“The way of the heart is the foundation of this book, a cookbook for body & soul. When we listen with our hearts, we hear the way to our personal nourishment. And if we follow our hearts in the way of food, we will be nourished. A plate of food has a story to tell and its story touches us, moves us, fills us. I have talked with many people during the creation of this book and, without exception, when they begin to remember and relate their memories, feelings and thoughts about the recipes they are sharing, a light appears on their countenances and a lilt frames their voices.”
“Stories are clues and guides to our deepest sources of nourishment. They come from the heart of our nature and speak with great authority about what is meaningful to us. They are our personal authorities, because they are our personal experiences, rich with all that connects us to life.”
I’d like to share with you a sample recipe/story from the book: Excerpt from “Everything I Eat Nourishes Me”

Everything I Eat Nourishes Me, A Cookbook for Body & Soul is a book about love and food, trust and nourishment, and the stories around the recipes we create. It is a self-care book that will allow your own experience of foods and cooking to be your guide.
Some comments from reviewers:
“Everything I Eat Nourishes Me offers a refreshing, revolutionary approach to both cooking and eating, one which eliminates the taboos and guilts previously attached to delicious food. The recipes vary from elegant to down-home fare. This is food that you can go into the kitchen and make yourself – food that not only makes you feel good when you are eating it, but also when you are cooking it. This down-to-earth cookbook shows us the nurturing power of food, feeds the soul with its powerful, positive affirmations and encourages us to trust our inner choices.”
Sandra Squadrilli, chef and former owner of Entre Nous, Café Kabul and Sandra’s Restaurant in New York City
“A sumptuous feast of a book! A celebration of the art of homecooking, redolent with the spice of life. Each cherished recipe is an open invitation to partake in food shared and enjoyed over generations and cultures. A pleasurable and soul-satisfying banquet where everyone has a place at the table.”
Patricia Reis, writer and psychotherapist
