MANNA FROM THE MOTHERLANDISBN: 9781592210640
The close relationship between food and the spiritual dimensions of ones life is the focus of Manna from the Motherland. A central theme in the book is that the health and happiness we all deserve can easily be experienced when we choose a healthy diet, live with conscious intention, and cultivate spiritual qualities.
Using some of the more common recipes from Liberia, Ghana, and Kenya, this book adapts their vegetarian variations. While the main focus of the book is on African vegetarian cuisine, it contains other themes for physical, emotional, and spiritual enhancement. There are sections on meditation, hatha yoga, walking for physical fitness, as well as poems with a spiritual theme, which are all incorporated within a philosophy of good food and aim to create a whole and enlightened person.
