Healthy Eating

Food and Healing by Annemarie Colbin. Talks about our relationship to food and its effect on our health. Mostly philosophy, not recipes, but really interesting.

The New Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas. A great cookbook to learn simple wholefoods cooking. Easy, seasonal, no “weird” ingredients involved.

Cooking the Whole Foods Way by Christina Pirello. Based in Macrobiotic cooking, so some of the ingredients used are a little odd. However, very enlightening book. (She’s local and has a tv cooking show on Sat aft on PBS).

The Kripalu Cookbook by Atma JoAnn Levitt. A good collection of vegetarian fare from my favorite yoga institute. Especially good dressings and soups.

Low Fat Favorites by Moosewood Restaurant. One of many cookbooks from the famous vegetarian restaurant in Ithaca, NY. (When my husband Brad was in college, he worked there!).

The Versatile Grain and the Elegant Bean by Sheryl and Mel London. Bean and grain basics for beginners. How to cook them, what they all are, and lots of recipes. Not too fancy; just the facts.

A Dietician’s Cancer Story by Diana Dyer. Even for healthy people, this has great tips on eating a more healthful diet! Especially good section on how to get more fruits and veggies into your diet, even when you don’t really want to. A site to explain the glycemic index and how to incorporate it in your eating. The Vegetarian Resource Group. A great site for information on how to be a healthy vegan or vegetarian. Discusses plant proteins, has a section on issues for kids and teens, and lots of good recipes. Annemarie Colbin, PhD’s site; lots of good information and articles, some recipes. One of the original chefs at Moosewood Restaurant; lots of good articles and recipes. Take a look at her links, as well. A site listing organic farms, community supported agriculture, restaurants using locally produced foods and more. Searchable. Bucks County Foodshed Alliance. This nonprofit organization lists all of the local farmers markets and has great information regarding sustainable agriculture. Go to this site to find all the local farmers Dr Warner patronizes—the food is as great as the people!
