The Ingredients Matter: India
healing with restorative recipes
Are you concerned about your health and wondering how you can eat the healthiest way to help promote a healthier lifestyle? Do you love Indian cuisine? I was asked to review a book called, The Ingredients Matter: India by Urmi M Patel, M.S., Hina Balar, B.E. and Shilpa P. Saxena, MD. When I realized this was much more than a cookbook, and concentrated on using spices in the recipes for healing, I was thrilled to see what this book had to say. I love Indian cooking and the spices mystify me. I plan on using Indian spices in the kitchen to continue my healthy living!
This book’s recipes are authentic Indian cuisine, but even more interesting is that Indian spices used in cooking are described for their healing properties and nutrients! Each ingredient has a special function in our body and there is a short tutorial about each ingredient highlighted in each recipe! How cool is that. The authors explain how the spices used affect the digestive system and in turn how that helps promote good health.
The book is divided into the following sections: Light Fare, Main Dishes, Gluten Free Breads, Accompaniments, Desserts, Energy Nut Bars and Beverages all of which are Gluten-Free and can be made Dairy-Free and Vegan!
Check here for the recipe for Quinoa Pilaf…yum! Turmeric is the highlighted ingredient.
The authors are giving away to one reader a copy of this incredible resource filled cookbook! Open to US and Canada. Giveaway ends July 6, 2014 at 11:59 PM EST.
