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.
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.
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.

This book has lots of great ideas, and very tasty. I recommend the spices and flavorings as a good place to start for marinating your meals. Also the peanut butter.Published on February 6, 2014 by Will Allen
