    Living Food: A Feast for Soil and Soul is not just a cookbook. Rather, it is an eye-opening assessment of the central role food plays in our lives: vibrant food creates nourishment and vitality, and the way we grow it affects the stability and integrity of our planet Earth. This book starts on the ground with the soil where food originates, moves on to how food can affect our digestion, immune system and mood, and examines how our modern practices are threatening both the environment and the nutritional value of the food we eat. Our health and the health of the planet are intertwined - one cannot thrive without the other. Through delicious seasonal recipes, nutritional insights and easy-to-understand explanations, Daphne Lambert describes how linking our eating to seasonal rhythms can ensure a harmonious relationship between ourselves and the environment. Each section, one for each of the four seasons, reveals Mother Nature's knack for providing us with the food we need when we need it - both throughout the year and at each stage of our lives - and how we can make the most of her seasonal offerings. Living Food is an all-encompassing nutritional guide that will make you think more deeply about the food you eat.
