Radiant: The Cookbook
Paperback – December 4, 2018
From adaptogens and algae to sweet potatoes and turmeric, discover the exquisite flavors and healing magic of whole foods. In this A to Z guide and cookbook of the world’s most nutrient-dense foods, chef and nutritionist Mafalda Pinto Leite will illuminate how nature provides everything you need to achieve radiant health.
Radiant is about falling in love with pure food and receiving the dynamic life-force fuel these superfoods naturally provide. With the healing potency of raw vegetables, fruits, petals, herbs, roots, nuts, seaweeds, and more, you can age gracefully, ease stress, sleep better, and even feel more confident and creative. The (mostly) raw, vegan recipes highlight these powerhouse foods in unexpected ways, such as with the Rose Quartz Latte, Zen Chia Pudding with Matcha Whip, Moroccan Spiced Salad with Chickpea Popcorn, Into the Sea Salad Bowl, and Chocolate Maca Doughnuts.
As you follow Mafalda’s joyful “inside out” approach, you’ll experience bountiful energy, acute brainpower, balanced hormones, luminous skin, elevated moods, and restored digestion. These transformative recipes are your guide to choosing foods with the potential to change your life.
