The Kosmic Kitchen Cookbook
EVERYDAY HERBALISM AND RECIPES FOR RADICAL WELLNESS
With over 75 nourishing recipes and herbal remedies, this cookbook and seasonal guide to wellness brings the ancient wisdom of the elements to the 21st century.
Turn your kitchen into a healing sanctuary! This cookbook will help you identify your unique constitution based on the five elements—earth, water, fire, wind, and ether. Use that insight to design an everyday wellness practice with nourishing meals, healing herbs, and self-care rituals. Tapping into these elements is at the heart of all traditional medicines—Ayurveda, Western Herbalism, and Chinese Medicine—and it is the key to discovering your most vibrant self.
Discover the power of herbalism and the elements to feel balanced and well from season-to-season. With simple spices and healing herbs, you‘ll feel confident creating remedies that support mental clarity, enhanced digestion, a relaxed nervous system, and promote an overall radiance. From cleansing tonics like Roasted Dandelion Chai or Hibiscus Punch with Schisandra Salt to rejuvenating classics like Kitchari with Golden Ghee or Tumeric Congee, you'll find transformative recipes and uses for adaptogenic herbs to restore and find balance every day.
"For anyone starting on a path to understanding the healing power of plants and herbalism, this is your book. I love the way Sarah and Summer go beyond the realm of infusions and decoctions to really dive into the space where herbalism and day-to-day cooking intersect. Everyone needs a bit of kosmic in their kitchen!" —Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Cooking and Near & Far
