We might be a little bit biased, since Angie used to be a chef at Billabong, but we think that this is one of the best cookbooks out there.

More than just a cookbook, Making Peace Before You Eat inspires the reader to connect with their meal, eating with mindfulness and intention.

The recipes are gluten free, plant based recipes focused on whole food nourishment.

Some favourites are:

  • Chia and Whipped Banana Breakfast Pudding
  • Sweet Potato Nachos with Cauliflower Mince
  • Chana Dal with Kale and Cumin Seeds
  • Creamy Eggplant Dip

Plant based diets are becoming the go-to diet for doctors with patients suffering from chronic disease. Even if you don’t follow a plant based diet, these recipes are a great place to start to increase the amount of vegetables in your diet because let’s be honest, we could all do with eating more veggies!

Happy cooking!

A long battle with anxiety led Kirsty to the practice and it completely transformed her way of life. She realised that her actions affected not just her, but all of the world: its people, its animals, its mountain, rivers and seas. That is when she committed to the life-long journey towards wholeness that, with the help of yoga, she continues today. To Kirsty, yoga is a path to self-exploration, conscious awareness, and compassion.
