Two of America's most popular authorities on healthy eating and cooking join forces in this inspiring, easy-to-use cookbook. This is not a diet book. It is a lively guide to healthy cooking, day-by-day, packed with essential information and, above all, filled with enticing food.
Andrew Weil, M.D.--author of the best-selling Eating Well for Optimum Health--brings to this perfect collaboration a comprehensive philosophy of nutrition grounded in science. Rosie Daley--acclaimed for her best-seller, In the Kitchen with Rosie--brings to it her innovative and highly flavorful spa cuisine.
The recipes are eclectic, drawing from the healthy and delicious cooking of the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Asia, among other cuisines. For starters, you might try Grilled Satay or a Miso Pate; for soup, often a meal in itself, a hearty Mixed-Bean Minestrone Stew or a Roasted Winter Squash and Apple Soup with Cilantro Walnut Pesto; a special entree could be the Savory Roasted Cornish Hens with Roasted Garlic or Baked Spicy Tofu with Bean Thread Noodles, Corn, and Mango; for a simple supper, Turkey Burgers or Portobello Burgers; and for the occasional indulgence, a dessert of Almond Fruit Tart or Peach and Blueberry Cobbler.
Andy and Rosie do not always agree. When Rosie calls for chicken, Andy offers a tofu alternative; she likes the flavor of coconut milk, whereas he prefers ground nut milk; when she makes a pastry with butter, he suggests using Spectrum Spread. There are no hard-and-fast rules.
Lifelong health begins in the kitchen, so this is a lifestyle book as well as a cookbook. In it you will learn from Dr. Weil:
- how to make use of nutritional information in everydaycooking
- what is organic . . . and how to buy organic foods
- the importance of reading labels and what to look for
- sensible advice about eggs, milk, cheese, salt, spicy foods, wine, coffee
- the facts about sugar and artificial sweeteners
. . . and from Rosie:
- how to get kids involved--from skinning almonds to layering lasagna
- ways to have fun in the kitchen--creating scallion firecrackers and radish rosettes
- low-fat and nondairy alternatives for those with special concerns
- smart menu planning--letting the seasons be your guide
. . . and lots more.
This revolutionary book will change forever the way you cook for yourself and your family.
With 58 photographs in full color.

Author Bio
Andrew Weil
Andrew Weil, best-selling author and natural-health pioneer, was born in Philadelphia in 1942. He received an A.B. degree in biology (botany) from Harvard in 1964, and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School in 1968. Initially, Weil's fascination with the miraculous healing powers of the human body drove him to pursue biology and medicine; he strongly believed that, if nurtured properly, the human body had the ability to heal itself. Thus, during his academic studies, he became disillusioned with the rules of Western medicine, which promoted chemical intervention and disregarded any connections between the mind and body. His dissatisfaction with his conventional clinical training led him to explore non-Western cultures' concepts of natural health and mind-body interactions. Believing his discoveries would be helpful to Western populations, Weil began to write informative books about the healing arts. His first work, THE NATURAL MIND, was published after he completed his medical internship at Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco and worked one year at the National Institute of Mental Health. Between 1971 and '75, his position as a Fellow of the Institute of Current World Affairs allowed him to travel to South America and Africa, where he accumulated information about medicinal plants and natural remedies used to treat diseases. Between 1971 and '84, while on the research staff of the Harvard Botanical Museum, Weil conducted research on psychoactive plants. He has continued to write about natural healing practices. Many of these works, such as EATING WELL FOR OPTIMUM HEALTH, EIGHT WEEKS TO OPTIMUM HEALTH, and SPONTANEOUS HEALING, became national bestsellers, catapulting Weil into the heart of health-guru fame.
