Overview

Famed raw foods chef Renée Loux celebrates the growing whole foods movement with The Balanced Plateover, containing 150 delicious, creative recipes and practical advice for leading a healthy, whole life

In her first book, Living Cuisine, Renée Loux showed how nutritious and satisfying raw foods cuisine can be. Now she takes a broader look at the benefits of a diet rich in natural, whole foods. Under the banner of "nutritional cross-training," Renée outlines the basic principles of such dietary plans as macrobiotics and Ayurveda, and dishes up flavorful whole foods recipes for optimal health––including Ratatouille Thin Crust Pizza, Roasted Spring Vegetable Salad, and Lemon Vanilla Ginger Snaps––with a nod to gluten-free living, blood sugar balance, and boosted immunity.

You are what you eat, Renée explains, but you are also what you use to clean your house and your skin, and so sprinkled throughout the book readers will find ideas for introducing the whole-foods philosophy to their home and beauty routines, including tips for composting and choosing a healthy water filter.

When Living Cuisine appeared, Alicia Silverstone applauded Renée’s recipes, saying: "Incredibly rich and delicious and full of health and restorative energy, her food is medicine." Part eco-friendly cookbook and part organic lifestyle guide, this new book reflects that same spirit, while presenting the essential elements of living well through whole foods, and living responsibly for a sustainable future.

    Knowledge Is Power

    I would like everyone in my family to have and read this book. I feel Renee's calm and her power as I read the power packed pages she has handed us on a 'silver platter'. A must have for anyone who wishes to become very well informed about food, our planet, giving and receiving, interactions on so many levels. I expect this book to be so worn and used, that when I am gone from this world, anyone going through my home would know to grab it and treasure it as I do. I find myself at a lost of words to express my feelings, but trying, I would say, I am inspired, uplifted, excited, and greatful. I feel I have a PHD sitting next to me having a warm and easy experience of learning.
