Summary

In The Forager's Kitchen Handbook, expert forager and cook Fiona Bird shares the knowledge she has gained from years of gathering food from the land.
Whether you live in a large city, in open countryside or by the coast, if you open your eyes and follow Fiona Bird's advice, you will find more ingredients growing in the wild than you could imagine. Each chapter focuses on a different food type – Flowers and Blossom, Woodland and Hedgerow, Fruits and Berries, Herbs, and Sea and Shore –  and includes useful information about where to find it, how to forage and gather it, and how to use it. And once you have brought your bounty home, there are more than 100 recipes for you to try. If you love baking, try the carrot and clover cake, wild hazelnut shortbread or sea lettuce madeleines. Make the most of a hedgerow glut by making honeysuckle jelly or quince and wild thyme sorbet. Try a food-for-free main course of chanterelle puffs or wild mussels steamed with dandelions, or a quick snack of garlic mustard, chickweed and tomato bruschetta. Or indulge your sweet tooth with wild berry and herb marshmallows or a wild cherry panna cotta. Armed with this handbook, head off to the great outdoors and you will be amazed by the sheer quantity of food that is available for free.

    From the author of Clean Green Eats, a Japanese-inspired guide to finding balance, joy, and good health—A Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up for wellness—that emphasizes a simple, streamlined method for cleaning up your eating habits and offers modern-day applications of ancient Japanese healing practices and philosophy 
    Candice Kumai has always treasured the Japanese traditions that shaped her childhood. In recent years, she’s been spending more time in Japan, meeting with relatives and absorbing the culture. It was on one of those trips that she visited a Kintsugi master and found the guiding inspiration for her next book. 
    Kintsugi is an art form that reconstructs broken pottery, sealing the pieces together with gold to create something that is even more beautiful for all of its cracks and flaws. In Kintsugi Wellness, Candice shows us how this ancient Japanese practice can be applied to our lives to achieve radiant health. 
    Part 1: Lifestyle introduces the Japanese art of living and aging well, from spending more time with family + nature and honoring the seasons (and the impact of the seasons your body) to reconnecting with ancestors + learning of adaptation, discipline, humility and kaizen (continuous improvement). 
    Part 2: Mind explores the ways in which the mind and body are inextricably linked in Japanese wellness philosophies, showing readers how the philosophy of golden repair can be applied in cleansing rituals, meditation, and soothing traditions. 
    Part 3: Heart shows us how to incorporate a greater sense of connection and gratitude into our lives through community, spirituality, personal relationships, nature, respect and family—the cornerstones of Japanese culture. 
    Part 4: Nutrition offers detailed information on essential Japanese ingredients (including superfoods like green tea/matcha, miso, and fermented foods) as well as traditional cooking traditions and methods, with forty whole-food recipes including California style bowls, miso, soba, temaki (hand-roll) sushi, bento boxes and more. 
    The philosophy of kintsugi is not about perfection—it is about healing, becoming whole, and finding the beauty in our imperfections. Written in Candice’s warm, conversational style, Kintsugi Wellness offers readers the tools to mend what ails them and to embrace and celebrate what makes them unique. 
    Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.  
    This book would make a great Mother's Day gift for any foodie or wellness enthusiast in your life. 
    With its focus on Japanese-inspired wellness practices and whole-food recipes, Kintsugi Wellness is sure to be a hit with anyone looking to improve their health and wellbeing.

    If you are miserable with being overweight and tired of being on blood pressure medication, then keep reading... 
    Do you feel like being overweight has become part of your identity, always being referred to as “big” or “heavyset” behind your back, and after fighting this battle for decades are you beginning to think nothing is ever going to work? 
    Do you fear you will need to stay on blood pressure medication for the rest of your life, and that you are one “bad episode” away from having to double your meds, or worse? 
    High blood pressure is a leading cause of death, and you CAN do something about it. 
    But if you want to see those numbers on the scale drop, and tell your doctor to shove your blood pressure pills in the trash, where do you even start with healthier eating?  
    Online articles can be frustrating, with each new subject seeming to contradict the last. Should you count calories and macros? Should you weigh your food? Which foods can you eat and which should you avoid? How do certain nutrients interact with other parts of your diet? 
    You don’t need a PhD in nutrition to lose weight or lower your blood pressure. 
    U.S. News & World Report year after year ranks the DASH diet as one of the best diets for heart health and diabetes.  
    No other diet has helped more people to permanently get off their blood pressure medication than the DASH diet. 
    Unlike other DASH diets for weight loss that end up starving you or have you eating jello for 2 weeks, our DASH plan is backed by research and stays 100% true to the original DASH diet while jumpstarting your weight loss. 
    Stop letting things in your life take importance over your health. 
    No matter how much you weigh, no matter how high your blood pressure, even if you have never been on a diet before, this guide will lay out exactly what you need to do to get your life back!
