Tapas, antipasto and mezze are all little treats to serve with drinks.
Deanna Minich's "Chakra Foods" offers up information on how to heal emotional and physical woes held in the various chakras through making the right food choices. The material for this book developed out of the author's highly successful "Nutrition for the Soul" classes, workshops, and private counselling sessions. Not a diet book, it looks at both the nutritional and spiritual aspects of the foods we eat and how they can heal us. For example: Someone who isn't feel terribly grounded could go to chapter 4 and find their symptoms listed alongside an explanation of the root chakra. They would then find foods to heal their root chakra (and thus their ailments): edible mushrooms; red foods such as beets, red meat, tomatoes, strawberries, pomegranate, and apples; and, yes, all the root vegetables. Someone feeling stuck in their lives could turn to chapter 5 and find a list of orange foods - apricots, carrots, salmon, pumpkin, oranges - to help their sacral chakra.They would also be encouraged to adopt a more playful attitude toward eating. For each chakra, specific affirmations and other practices are also offered, as are meal plans and recipes. A control freak or person too much in her head would be guided to work on her solar plexus chakra (the most frequently out of balance chakra) and encouraged to eat foods low on the glycemic index: beans, cruciferous vegetables, cherries, grapefruit, almonds, barley, and oats. People with a solar plexus imbalance, Minich also tells us, frequently crave quick-fix carbs, such as pretzels or cookies. Frequent helpful lists, charts, and diagrams help readers easily pinpoint and diagnose themselves and the various prescriptive options are all very clearly explained. With lots of useful charts and sidebars, this book really is a treasure trove of energy medicine in the form of food - or food for the soul.
This book provides a comprehensive theological framework for assessing significance of eating, employing a Trinitarian theological lens to evaluate food production and consumption practices as they are being worked out in today's industrial food systems. Norman Wirzba combines the tools of ecological, agrarian, cultural, biblical and theological analyses to draw a picture of eating that cares for creatures and that honors God. Unlike books that focus on vegetarianism or food distribution as the key theological matters, this book broadens the scope to include discussions on the sacramental character of eating, eating's ecological and social contexts, the meaning of death and sacrifice as they relate to eating, the Eucharist as the place of inspiration and orientation, the importance of saying grace and whether or not there will be eating in Heaven. Food and Faith demonstrates that eating is of profound economic, moral and theological significance.

With the world population set to reach 9 billion by the year 2050, and food demand expected to increase by 60 per cent during the same period, one of the key issues facing the world is food security. Major changes in policy and management, across the entire agricultural production chain, will be needed to ensure the best use of available water resources in meeting growing demands for food and other agricultural products. This new volume in the successful History of Water Series focuses on the African continent to address this key issue. Humanity has its roots in Africa and many of our food systems developed there. All types of agricultural production are present and the sheer size of the continent offers wide ecological variation from extreme desert to dense rainforest. Drawing together leading international contributors from a wide variety of disciplines Water and Food offers new insights into the evolution of food systems, from early hunter gatherers to the global challenges of the modern world.
