Are you looking for a way to improve your overall health and well-being? If you are concerned with incorporating the principles of healthy eating into your lifestyle, Joy Feldman’s Joyful Cooking: In the Pursuit of Good Health is a must-read book for you.

About Joyful Cooking: In the Pursuit of Good Health

This unique book is features more than 100 healthy recipes, but it is much more than just a cookbook. This book focuses on teaching readers what they need to know about nutrition and lifestyle practices that are essential to enjoying a healthy life. It’s more of a wellness guide and reference book for health and healing than a traditional cookbook.

The author, who is now a widely recognized expert in the field of nutritional balancing, did not start out in this profession. She changed her career path and dedicated herself to helping others after she was able to find relief through proper nutrition and lifestyle changes from a debilitating autoimmune condition that doctors told her she’d just have to live with.

What You’ll Learn from Reading the Book

The basic premise of the philosophy behind this book is simple, and it’s one that you’ve heard before. We are what we eat. That’s it. However, when this simple statement is considered in terms of what it really means, the implications for health, wellness and nutrition are profound. With so many people eating heavily processed junk food laced with all kinds of chemicals and fillers, it’s no wonder that so many people experience serious health problems that are related to their diets.


The approach described in Joyful Cooking: In the Pursuit of Good Health is one that combines mind and body balance. The book provides a road map for those who are ready and willing to break free from eating unhealthy foods that are causing harm to their physical well-being and who are willing to engage in the lifestyle changes that are necessary to achieve optimal health and well being through balance.

Joyful Cooking: In the Pursuit of Good Health includes up-to-date, relevant information on the science of nutritional balancing as well as information about how individuals can choose the right foods for nutrient-rich diets that meet their health, as well as find out what foods should be avoided. The book also includes tips for natural weight loss, cooking tips, ideas for stocking your pantry with the right foods, recipes and much more. If you’re ready to get started on your path to improved health through nutritional balancing, this book is for you.
