Food isn't just food, it can be medicine!
A plant-based, whole-food diet can help prevent chronic diseases, while also promoting a healthy weight. This isn't just a modern concept that's supported by today's science, but a knowledge that's deeply entrenched in our collective food history. Master Plants Cookbook, from the founder and chef for Naked Food© magazine, takes you on a fascinating journey of discovery that spans ancient civilizations, and links the wisdom of our ancestors with the magnificent power of foods we can still enjoy today. The plants and grains that these ancient cultures grew, ate, and thrived on remain the most powerful foods for our own optimum health. And by incorporating these 33 "Master" plants into your diet-from avocados, lentils, and beets to sweet potatoes, blueberries, and chia-you can benefit from their detoxifying, immune-boosting, health-promoting powers. With more than 100 delectable and easy recipes including "Himalayan Rice," "Machu Picchu's Quinoa Cookies," and "Incan Mango Pudding," Master Plants Cookbook draws on the best of ancient traditions to spark a new love for real, organic cuisine that packs a powerful healing punch.

No longer is the pressure cooker a relic of your grandmother’s kitchen. Today, this powerful pot has become one of the most essential cooking tools in America. In this hectic, fast-paced life, with many hungry mouths to feed, a fridge of hodgepodge ingredients, and too many rules on how to cook one’s food, the pressure cooker emerges as the answer to all unnecessary problems.

With her expertise on practical living, Kate Rowinski puts together an indispensable cookbook with an introduction to the fundamentals of pressure cooking—the best equipment, how to use your tools, safety practices, and cooking time charts for different ingredients—followed by more than eighty recipes that feature the pressure cooker for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even all-day snacks. Learn to cook beloved meals in one-third to one-half the normal cooking time, such as:

• Southern-style grits and eggplant-amole
• Mini meatballs and risotto cakes
• “Beer-b-que” pork and the perfect pot roast
• Pineapple bread pudding
• And much more!

Reduce cooking time, retain more nutrients, maximize flavors, and minimize your electricity bill with your pressure cooker, the “shortcut” and convenient one-pot method that will solve all your kitchen headaches. Who knew cooking could relieve so much pressure?
