I recently stayed at Miraval and picked up their cookbook during my stay. I am very impressed with the quality of the book and the fabulous recipes. The book also has excellent tips on stocking your pantry, what kitchen utensils are most helpful, etc. The photos are mouthwatering! I have tried several of the recipes of food I actually ate during my stay at Miraval and found I really could duplicate some of their marvelous cuisine! This cookbook would make a wonderful wedding gift. Although I wouldn't consider myself a health food person, the recipes in this book are so yummy I am becoming a mindful eater and smiling the whole time. Thank you Miraval.

Mindful Eating is an absolutely beautiful book with delicious, healthy recipes. The book is written by the chefs of Miraval Resort in Arizona and the relaxing spa environment is communicated on each page with stunning photos and amazing meals. With Miraval pantry essentials, it is easy to step into mindful meals such as Breakfast Parfait, Garden Quiche, Teff Banana Bread, and Cucumber Avocado Soup, it makes healthy eating fun and flavorful. This book is packed with a number of vegan and gluten-free options, and while it is not a strictly vegetarian book, it is packed with all sorts of recipes of every dietary need. Beyond delicious recipes, there are a number of staples that make this book a kitchen find - with recipes like Miraval Mayonnaise, Citrus Vinaigrette, and Spicy Peanut Sauce and additional basics like Risotto and Roasted Vegetables, this book covers everything that you might want to revamp your repertoire. I love that recipes like Cumin-Scented Black Bean Cakes and Hummus and Baked Tofu Flatbread are healthy and packed with fresh ingredients.

While not every recipe in the book is an ideal weeknight meal (some take a bit more prep time and are more involved), with the vast array of options in Mindful Eating, there is no shortage of healthy mealtime options for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Like the principle of the book, however, does not contain all of the Miraval recipes, and some ingredients are hard to find or are limited by region or country. The gist is good however one needs to be a creative cook to take this from spa restaurant menu to dinner table cuisine.

I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone who is looking for healthy, great-tasting recipes. I have been to Miraval Spa several times and love their spa cuisine. Each time I saw their cooking demos and listened to the tips from the chefs I asked if they would be coming out with a cookbook, and they finally have one so I can make some of the recipes I have tasted myself. Chef Chad and his team do a remarkable job creating recipes that are low in calories but still delicious. I recommend the chicken scallopini, kale salad, and crème brulee to start with.

My favorite tip from Miraval is to use a regular style spray bottle for oils; it works much better than the Misto Sprayer I previously used. I made the Miraval Blend oil (Canola/Olive Oil mixture) and found a 12 oz aluminum spray bottle at the Container Store that is perfect for it.

This is exactly the cookbook I've been looking for. Delicious, gourmet, HEALTHY cuisine. The recipes are inventive and flavorful and numerous. Things like Carmelized-Onion Orzo Cakes, Pistachio-Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Reduction and Prickley Pear Marinated Duck Breasts with Ancho Chili-Mango Salsa. There some really helpful tips on how to cook healthier like filling a spray bottle with oil and using it to add oil to your food instead of just pouring it straight from the bottle. Also, the book starts with great (and often innovative) recipes for basics like beans, spice rubs and stocks. I especially appreciate that each recipe is accompanied by a detailed nutritional value breakdown.

There is a definite southwest/Tucson/Sonora influence in many of the recipes. I may be biased, but southern Arizona is home to some of the best flavors in the world! Unsurprisingly for a cookbook from a super high-end resort, a lot of the ingredients are spendy. Filet mignon, gruyere cheese and such. And some are pretty exotic. Buffalo filet, arborio rice, xanthem gum. And many recipes require serious prep time. So I'll be substituting and shortcutting a bit, but I've already produced some excellent meals.

The book is arranged according to Miravel's various restaurants, which is pretty hokey, but it serves to organize the recipes by entrees, appetizers, soups, etc. Despite the title, the mindful eating concept is only briefly discussed in the introduction. So have no fear if you're not into that. But if you are, you will find the recipes exceptionally mindful.

Every recipe seemed to require another recipe to build on...life simply can not be this complicated these days. I am not using this cookbook.

I am an avid home cook and have recently decided to focus on healthier cooking for my family. I found this book to be very sophomoric with a limited range of ingredients. It appears that there a lot of similar recipes with minor changes in ingredients. It is focused on a preponderance of southwestern type of ingredients with little to no presentation. The focus of "mindful eating" noted in the reviews was barely touched on in the opening chapter but not carried through in the book. This book might be appropriate for a novice cook with limited knowledge of both cooking and dietary choices. It certainly did not give me a desire to try the recipes. I would not recommend this book and after reading it I have no wish to visit the spa itself for fear it would be as banal as the book.
