Did you know you have access to a potent and sophisticated apothecary-right in your own kitchen? Plants, specifically herbs and spices, have been used for centuries as part of holistic healing traditions around the world to promote health, longevity, and beauty. And as more people become afflicted with chronic stress-based conditions, from inflammation and food allergies to anxiety and depression and menstrual irregularities, a whole new generation is rediscovering nature’s power for long-term wellness.
In Root & Nourish, wellness experts Abbey Rodriguez and Jennifer Kurdyla teach women how to incorporate plant medicine into everyday life through food and self-care. Organized into three areas of health concerns prevalent in women today-digestion, mental health, and female reproductive hormonal health-these affordable, seasonal, and sustainable recipes, drawn from Western herbalism and Ayurveda, are designed to help you curate a personalized herbal apothecary that will serve you for a lifetime.
Inside you’ll find dishes including:
- Thai Peanut Stir-Fry with Tofu to tackle gut health
- Heartwarming Vegan Chili to promote mental health
- Adaptogenic Chocolate Chip Cookies for female reproductive health
Once you come to learn which ingredients offer you the nourishment you need, whether in the moment or to support chronic conditions, you will understand your body-and yourself-as you never have before: as nature intended.
