After reading this book, one can no longer claim ignorance concerning the effects of diet on personal and world health.
Among the many topics explored in this book are the energetics of food on body/mind and emotions, individualizing the diet, understanding one’s physiological constitution, individual acid-base balance, transition phases to conscious eating, and a holistic, ecological understanding of the role diet plays in both personal and planetary health. Chapters on live food cuisine, the role of vegetarianism in world spiritual traditions, and the many nutritional concerns of a vegetarian and live-food diet round out Conscious Eating. Included is new information on enzymes, vegetarian nutrition for pregnancy, and an innovative international fourteen-day menu of gourmet, Kosher, vegetarian, live-food cuisine, with 150 recipes.
“This is truly the self-help text we all have been looking for, a ‘Body Owner’s Manual.’ If it were received at birth and applied, we would most likely see the average longevity double. Conscious Eating is the most comprehensive book on vegetarianism, rejuvenation, and balance, reflecting a wholism of living with the uniqueness of each individual.” —Viktoras Kulvinskas, author of Survival into the 21st Century
