The secret of maintaining good health is in the art of adjusting to seasonal changes. Just as we adjust our clothing to changes in nature we should also adjust our food choices. Autumn is a season when energy matures. It is a season of harvesting, but also a season when we tend to withdraw into the cosiness of our own homes. Temperatures are falling, and we are more in the mood to spend time in the kitchen, to enjoy the warmth of our homes and generate strength for the upcoming winter. Jadranka Boban Peji?, the pioneer of macrobiotic and natural cuisine, and the bestselling author, has prepared a bunch of easy-to-prepare vegan recipes for autumn.
