Cook A Book–The Medicinal Chef

DSC_9752 -1

Yay! My first Cook A Book Challenge. For the first book I chose “The Medicinal Chef” by Dale Pinnock. I love this book for several reasons. The recipes are straight forward, no exotic ingredients. Focus is on healthy food. The recipes use fresh ingredients and look crisp and healthy. I love the icons on each recipe which tells the reader what this recipe is good for. The icons tell you that a recipe is beneficial in one or more of these categories:

  • Skin
  • Joints & Bones
  • Respiratory System
  • Immune System
  • Metabolic System
  • Mental Health & Nervous System
  • Heart & Circulation
  • Digestive System
  • Reproductive & Urinary System

The basic concept of the book is “Food for medicine” without following the often experienced boring health food evangelism. The recipes are fresh and fun to cook and eat.
