“Desire is the basis for new conception, new growth, new life. We’re born with it. And often talked out of it. When you tap it, you have access to your inner guidance. Women, Food, and Desire will show you how. Sweet.” (Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of New York Times bestsellers WOMEN'S BODIES, WOMEN'S WISDOM and THE WISDOM OF MENOPAUSE )

Women, Food, and Desire is a must read! As a physician fully aware of the impact of our thoughts and food on the waistline, I've waited for a book like this: one that brings together the sensual, emotional, and nutritional.

(Mariel Hemingway, Actress Author Speaker Mother )

"As a theologian, I am intimate with the ways that religious texts have given the body a bad rep. The idea that the flesh is sinful and deceiving has created holy wars for women in their own bodies. Alexandra Jamieson reminds us that Eve was infinitely wise to eat that red apple. Pleasure is a form of soul-nourishment that we need to feel whole, vibrantly alive, and in love with life.This book will detox the shame that has kept you from being in your body.
