The Yoga of Eating - I love this title
The Yoga of Eating: Transcending Diets and Dogma to Nourish the Natural Self - Charles Eisenstein

This is definitely a much more spiritual take on eating than I expected.  Learning to listen to and trust your body seems like a relatively simple thing to do but there are definitely times when my sweet tooth is warring with common sense.   The author focuses on delighting in food rather than resisting what you think you should or shouldn’t be eating. 

Since finishing the book, I have been paying much more attention to not only what I eat but also the way I eat; being mindful about actually tasting and savoring each bite, chewing my food more than a few times before swallowing a big lump and slowing down and taking the time to prepare meals that I know will nourish my body.  I like his idea that the body is always doing its valiant best with what it has rather than believing that there is something wrong with me (and my cravings) that needs fixing.   It’s a much more empowering way to think about food.

Easy Breadmaking for Special Diets: Use Your Bread Machine, Food Processor, Mixer, or Tortilla Maker to Make the Bread You Need Quickly and Easily
Easy Breadmaking for Special Diets: Use Your Bread Machine, Food Processor, Mixer, or Tortilla Maker to Make the Bread You Need Quickly and Easily - Nicolette M. Dumke Well this one would take work to make it useful for me. Let me quote from page 9: "Although independent testing laboratories, such as the Rodale Institute, find grains such as millet, milk and teff and the non-grains amarath, quinoa and buckwheat to be essentially gluten-free, at the time of this writing the Celiac Sprue Association has not yet tested these flours and recommends eating breads made from only rice, potato, tapioca, arrowroot, corn and legume flours." Things have moved on from there in the gluten-free movement and I'm unimpressed with this edition. There are also wheat free recipes that use spelt and kamut. While this has potential for being a useful book, there are others that I would find more useful.
