already crying from reading the intro such powerful words and inspiration, love it sooo much, i can’t wait to read the rest!
Kumai is known for creating inspiring, mindful food content. I first learned of her work through the book Pretty Delicious, which focused on FWB's: Food With Benefits. The object was not deprivation, but modification. Make sure to focus on the healthier parts of food (the greens, mostly), then allow space for living and enjoyment! The other cookbooks focused, again, on well-thy foods to encourage feeling good and looking good (Cook Yourself Sexy, Clean Green Drinks, Clean Green Eats). This book takes a different turn, and Kumai is going to get a huge return on her investment. She took a series of trips to Japan to speak with family and experts on Japanese philosophy. While she got to tap into her roots, and repair from her own grief and loss, we yield the benefits of her gained wisdom (all without the high ticket price and jet lag). Oh, and you still get great recipes (matcha scones are going to happen this weekend!). Kintsugi is about repair. We've all felt broken at one point or another, but I think we need to think beyond the self-care of bubble baths and face masks. Being broken isn't easy- it's tears shed, drinking too much, and losing who you are. We all have a story like Kumai's, but we have to do the hard work to fill in the cracks of our broken shell (and fill them with gold, honey!). In this book she shares her framework, but we have to be the ones to apply it, in whatever way suits you and your upbringing, spiritual beliefs, etc. Other books by Candice: Clean Green Eats: 100+ Clean-Eating Recipes to Improve Your Whole Life Clean Green Drinks: 100+ Cleansing Recipes to Renew & Restore Your Body and Mind Pretty Delicious: Lean and Lovely Recipes for a Healthy, Happy New You (the BEST spinach artichoke dip recipe is in this book!)
