Many people have shelves full of “healthy” cookbooks created by chefs with little or no nutritional expertise or home-cooking experience. The recipes are either too fussy or impractical and leave out a key ingredient—taste!

Health Begins in the Kitchen combines the know-how of a foodie and avid cook with a PhD in nutrition to create a practical and seasonal approach to good eating. Healthy has never been so easy or so delicious!

Vegan and Gluten Free

In this cookbook, I will show you how to have a guilt-free, joyful and healthy relationship with food. Health Begins in the Kitchen demonstrates the possibility of avoiding disease and achieving remarkable health by the simple process of eating delicious food

Selecting a Diet that Works for You
There are significant health benefits when you eat less meat and dairy while increasing your consumption of plant-rich meals. My book will show you how to easily incorporated more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds into your family's diet. 

Switching to a completely a plant-based diet requires some knowledge. I discuss the important benefits and shortcomings of different types of vegetarian diets (from raw vegan to semi-vegetarian), dispelling dietary myths along the way.

Besides the wide variety of healthy recipe ideas (from learning how to build the ultimate vegetarian lasagna to preparing guilt-free desserts), lots of tips are given on how to remake your own family favorites. For example: how to cook with less oil and sugar, how to replace eggs in cakes and other baked items, how to make fettuccine Alfredo or mac and “cheese” without dairy, and more. 

This delicious fettuccine Alfredo is dairy free!

Most people believe that their health and longevity depend on their genes and feel powerless to change their “destiny.” But actually, the diseases they will suffer from or the health they will enjoy depends more on the family recipes, rather than the genes that have been passed down to them from past generations. 

Health Begins in the Kitchen provides 160 delicious, vegan recipes (most are gluten free), 145 beautiful photographs, and an abundance of critical nutritional information that will inspire you to get into your kitchen and take control of your health. 

This "Parmesan" Topping is downright addictive!
Vegan and Gluten Free

This book introduces the Seasonally Raw Food Plan (with sample menus), emphasizing the importance of including raw, plant-rich foods in the diet. Unlike raw food diets that promote a high consumption of uncooked food all year round, I encourage a balance of cooked and raw foods that changes with each season. 

Tuscan Bean Soup
Vegan and Gluten Free

Cleansing the body of accumulated toxins is also important for one’s health and well-being, and many people find it helpful to do this periodically. An unsupervised water or juice fast can be dangerous and very difficult to complete; a safer and easier way to cleanse the body is by simply eating a diet of raw food for a period of time. Health Begins in the Kitchen offers instructions and sample menus for a gentle Raw Food Cleanse that will never leave you hungry.

This book is not just for vegans or vegetarians. It’s for anyone struggling to obtain the number of daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables needed for good health.  

Drawing from the book’s recipes, a variety of sample menus are provided from a casual burger night to Thanksgiving dinner. I also share tips for easy and enjoyable entertaining.  

I hope this book will become your favorite addition or a wonderful first introduction to a plant-rich recipe collection!

Health Begins in the Kitchen also provides:
  • ways to improve your diet with healthy and delicious, plant-rich, vegan recipes that will delight any palate whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, or an occasional meat-eater.

Hi, I just bought your book when I was holidaying in the US. But I was lucky - having followed your blog for a year or so I knew the release was imminent. Amazon UK wouldn't let me buy it, but I was able to get it whilst abroad using a new US account I created. Pity it's not available in the UK though. Excellent information, and wonderfully presented. Thanks for all your work on this and the blog. Mike

Dr. Joanne L. Mumola Williams said...

Thanks so much for your support. I'm glad you are enjoying it.
The book is available in 51 countries on iTunes, including the UK. Amazon also sells in the UK. Which company did you try to buy it from and what happened when you tried to search the title? Let me know your experience and I'll look into it.

Mike said...

Joanne I've just checked the UK Amazon site and it IS now available here. When I left for the US/Canada 3.5 weeks ago it simply said that it 'wasn't available in your country'. So maybe I was just a bit too quick and Amazon UK weren't quite ready then.

So no excuse for we Brits not to be healthy too!

Thanks, Mike

Dr. Joanne L. Mumola Williams said...

So glad it's now available there. Tell all your British friends about the book!
Thanks again and enjoy!
