What’s got my e-reader’s battery running low this month is Food and Healing by Annemarie Colbin. I’ve been conducting some personal experiments lately concerning the effects of food on my body and mental state. Colbin’s book ties right in, with a veritable treasure-trove of information on everything from “heating” and “cooling” foods, to the effects of dairy on hormone levels, with plenty in between.
I appreciate how balanced Colbin’s approach is. She states more than once that there is no one perfect diet for every body, an attitude refreshingly contrary to the standard one-size-fits-most approach so pervasive in our culture. I’ve only just begun to read, but I have a feeling this will be a virtual cover-to-cover marathon.
