Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


Famed raw foods chef Ren e Loux celebrates the growing whole foods movement with The Balanced Plateover, containing 150 delicious, creative recipes and practical advice for leading a healthy, whole life

In her first book, Living Cuisine, Ren e Loux showed how nutritious and satisfying raw foods cuisine can be. Now she takes a broader look at the benefits of a diet rich in natural, whole foods. Under the banner of "nutritional cross-training," Ren e outlines the basic principles of such dietary plans as macrobiotics and Ayurveda, and dishes up flavorful whole foods recipes for optimal health--including Ratatouille Thin Crust Pizza, Roasted Spring Vegetable Salad, and Lemon Vanilla Ginger Snaps--with a nod to gluten-free living, blood sugar balance, and boosted immunity.

You are what you eat, Ren e explains, but you are also what you use to clean your house and your skin, and so sprinkled throughout the book readers will find ideas for introducing the whole-foods philosophy to their home and beauty routines, including tips for composting and choosing a healthy water filter.

When Living Cuisine appeared, Alicia Silverstone applauded Ren e's recipes, saying: "Incredibly rich and delicious and full of health and restorative energy, her food is medicine." Part eco-friendly cookbook and part organic lifestyle guide, this new book reflects that same spirit, while presenting the essential elements of living well through whole foods, and living responsibly for a sustainable future.
