Summary

Sacred & Delicious is an award-winning vegetarian cookbook, a primer on Ayurveda (India’s ancient wellness system), and a gorgeous food memoir that celebrates the healing power of food. Author Lisa Mitchell writes inspiring and clear prose about the power of the Ayurvedic system to sustain good health and reverse chronic health problems, recounting her own recovery. The book includes 108 recipes and more than 60 full-page color photos. Most of the dishes include vegan options, and all but two are gluten-free. Only ten of the recipes reflect traditional Indian cooking. The rest demonstrate how to apply the balancing principles of Ayurveda and the creative (yet subtle) use of spices to modern Western cuisines that many Westerners prefer. Mitchell shares the Vedic perspective on why food is sacred and how cooks can bring a sacred intention to their kitchen labors to approach food preparation as spiritual practice. Traditional blessings for food from various cultures are sprinkled throughout the book. 



In April 2019, Sacred & Delicious won silver medals in two prestigious book industry awards competitions: the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards (in the Body, Mind, Spirit category) and the Nautilus Awards (in the Food, Cooking, and Healthy Eating category). It also won the cookbook category in the Body, Mind, Spirit Book Awards and is a finalist in the Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards (to be announced in June).

    Being an empath is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, most of us like having such deep emotions. We can feel a sunset clear through to our soul and love more deeply than any "normal" person could imagine. We also tend to have intuitive knowledge about people and places that can be truly helpful—if we listen! On the other hand, we usually absorb far too much energy from those around us and can easily feel overwhelmed, to say the least. 
     
     
     
    With sensitive souls, our brains are hardwired differently. When people ask me what it feels like to be an empath, I can only explain it as being "wide open all the time". 
    
     
    In this book, I want to show you that you're unique—not crazy or neurotic—and that with practice you can feel far less overwhelmed. In my practice, I've seen clients who spent years as overwhelmed introverts come to understand and work with their empathy. In doing so, they've become stronger, calmer, more outgoing, and far happier. I want this for you too!
