Delicious vegetarian recipes blending nutrient-dense plant foods, herbs, and spices in powerful combos that amp up each dish's healing properties, from a chef-turned-health coach
The Superfood Alchemy Cookbook shares a powerful approach to wellness. Chef and health coach Jennifer Iserloh shows how cooking like an alchemist provides a way to integrate healing practices into your everyday routine. These recipes bring together nature's strongest ingredients - superfoods, adaptogens, essential oils, and healing herbs and spices - in delicious combinations that increase their healing properties.
(For example, most of us know that cooking tomatoes boosts the fruits' heart-healing lycopene, but did you know that pairing turmeric with black pepper helps the body get the most from its anti-inflammatory compounds?)
Create dishes to:
- Boost immunity
- Reduce inflammation
- Restore and maintain gut health
- Encourage mental focus and mood balance
- Support gentle detox and more
Each chapter also shares simple home remedies, natural body treatments, and powerful rituals for wellness in body and soul.
