“Sometimes the most ordinary aspects of daily life are the most mysterious — holding the greatest promise for new insights into human possibility. What could be more ordinary than food? We all eat and yet we frequently do so with little to no conscious awareness of what we are taking in or how it influences our health, well-being, or connection to the social, physical, or metaphysical worlds in which we live. The Healing Secrets of Food moves our understanding of the ordinary into a new appreciation of the subtle dimensions of diet and nutrition. This beautiful book combines science, storytelling, and heart to address our relationship to food and how this relationship links us to family, culture, and spirit. As Kesten tells us so clearly, the intention we give to food can truly transform our lives.”

— Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D., director of research, Institute of Noetic Sciences

“Bursting with a zest for food and time-tested cooking wisdom gleaned from ancient cultures and modern science, this is a book that I will turn to again and again for inspiration, enjoyment, and the sheer delight of discovering new ingredients not listed on labels or found in supermarkets. Its insights will remain with you long after you have dined.”

—Jean-Marc Fizllsack, executive chef for Lifestyle Advantage

“The moment I picked it up, I knew this book was something different. This is more than a book about eating. I agree with Kesten that food shared is food much, more delicious — and healthier. The ideas expressed in this book are long overdue. It will be very welcome — and healing.”

— Marlena Spieler, author of The Vegetarian Bistro and Islands in the Sun Cookbook
