After the success of her first book "WHOLE – bowl food for balance", which shares the journey of moving away from fad dieting and healing our relationship with food through mindful eating, Melissa decided to dive deeper into health and look at why we make the food choices we do. She discovered that understanding why we make the food choices that hinder health, cause inflammation and compound weight gain, and learning to connect with our emotions empowers us to make healthier decisions.
HEAL – begin with food is about that journey and aims to share information on how to eat healthier, support the body’s various systems, heal ailments, and live a life of energy and abundance through beautiful whole food cooking. The close to 100 recipes in this book are beyond delicious and packed with whole foods that are nutritious and can be enjoyed without guilt, knowing that they are healthy for the mind, body and soul. The recipes are either vegetarian or vegan, but for those who enjoy meat, it can simply be added to the dish.
The recipes also feature pertinent health information and each chapter begins with questions that will help build awareness around your food choices. Healing your relationship with food is the first step in connecting to your health and HEAL will transform the way you look at food as a means to bring healing, lasting change and vitality into your life.
