By B. Marold HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on March 8, 2005
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
`Yogi in the Kitchen' by Elaine Gavalas, M.A., M.S. is a great little mish mash of culinary doctrine, mystic lore, yoga exercises, and recipes from around the world in a fun little book which has the power to get you interested, but drops the ball in the end.

While the Greeks and Romans were inventing mathematics, medicine, philosophy of knowledge, and science in the Mediterranean wild west, the Indians and Chinese were mapping the relation between body, soul, and mind in a way which has never quite been matched by Western thinkers until the advent of modern clinical psychology, which could do nothing more than affirm that the eastern mystics knew a thing or two about cultivating a healthy body and mind.

This book by a talented dabbler in both eastern lore and western nutritional science is a very nice introduction into all these matters. Ms. Gavalas manages to turn a very loose presentation into a virtue in that she does not bore us with dozens of pages on arcane Sanskrit derived words for the eastern version of a form of astrology.

For those who may be buying this book for recipes, know that in these 230 pages, 60 are devoted to the light introduction to the four different doctrines the author throws together into a mix of healthy eating regimens. These doctrines are vegetarianism, the Mediterranean diet, the Asian diet, and the ayurvedic diet. These first three are pretty well known to the average Western foodie, although the `Asian Diet' has gotten much less press and scientific review as a healthy regimen than the `Mediterranean diet'. The Ayurvedic diet is a development of Hindu doctrines and Yoga. The author describes it as `Yoga's sister science, ... a five thousand year old Indian holistic healing system for the body, mind, and spirit.

Format: Paperback
For Yogi In The Kitchen, author Elaine Gavalas draws upon her years of experience and expertise as a yoga instructor, exercise physiologist, nutritionist, weight-management specialist, and kitchen cook to provide more than 100 wonderfully presented recipes for dishes that are as good for the soul as they are nourishing for the body. Embracing the philosophy that Yoga is about healthier living in general, not just exercise, Yogi In The Kitchen begins with advice for eating the Yoga way, including how to stock one's pantry and seek balance in one's diet, as well as tips for staying healthy when eating out. Sample recipes include Baked Tofu and Vegetables, Garden de Vida Smoothie, Fresh Fruit Sorbet, and more. An excellent resource for making light, healthy, and fitness-promoting foods for oneself and one's family.
