Book Review: The Doctor Weighs In. Getting in touch with your feelings… about raisins

Getting in Touch With Your Feelings… About Raisins

A friend put me in touch with Maureen Whitehouse, a former model and now author of a new book, Soul-Full Eating. Maureen sent me a copy of her book to review.  Now, it is a pretty book with a serenely beautiful cover photo it’s a lettuce leaf (I think) and something that looks like a animal bone stuck in something that could be some sort of fruit.

Amazon Book Review: Merete Mueller

Comprehensive but an easy read, December 13, 2006

By Merete Mueller – See all my reviews

Books on personal and cultural issues around mealtimes and food preparation. But I have never come across a book that covers all of these subjects in one volume. Maureen has done an amazing job of collecting massive amounts of research and using her personal experiences to write a book that is actually fun to read and easy to understand. This book completely changed the way that I approach food and live my life.
