I was excited to open the box and see that this book had arrived! This is so much more than a cookbook as it begins with a discussion of whole foods and the importance and benefits of eating these types of recipes. There is also a discussion of gluten and other food sensitivities and why there seems to be so many more allergies and food sensitivities now. There is also a section about eating to heal and how foods can help with sensitivities and improving digestive health. Then it dives into the recipes! There is a section for smoothies, which I am a personal fan of! I was began having GI issues a few years ago and had to change my diet and my doctor recommended green smoothies and I have been a fan since! I love the tips for introducing smoothies to kids that are included as well. There are sections of breakfast recipes, muffins, main meals, soups and stews, salads, wraps, snacks, pretty much every type of food. There is such a wide variety of foods included in this book and they are all healthy and "healing" foods that will good for people to enjoy. There is also a little blurb included for each recipe discussing the flavor, tips for making the recipe and personal reflections on it. Pictures of some of the recipes are included throughout the book as well adding color and something for kids to look through and pick out some things to create and enjoy together.
