Book Review: The Self-Healing Cookbook

It's an odd thing to say, but books seem to find me.  They leap off shelves sometimes, calling my attention - which is otherwise distracted or engaged.  Once in hand, there's no doubt I am to read them, even those on subjects I'm totally unfamiliar with.

The Self-Healing Cookbook by Kristina Turner was just such a book; though this one stayed on the shelf, courteously waiting for me to pick it up.  Its hand-lettered and illustrated spine amongst the other "tall books" wasn't even in the "Cookbook" section.

Turner's classic is an excellent primer on the food/body/mind matrix. There's no need to be concerned about the macrobiotic premise.  It reflects sound thinking and basic principles.  Enchanting illustrations and clear prose make it a book to beg, borrow, or 'buy'.
