I picked this book up after getting a recommendation from a friend. The Conscious Kitchen by Alexandra Zissu is another beginner primer for anyone rethinking their eating habits. The thought behind the book is to not just say you are part of a food movement whatever that might be, but to change the way you approach the kitchen as a part of your life. The topics in this book range from how you grocery shop, to preserving your food, cooking your food and serving your food. She has also speaks about the appliances in a conscious kitchen, the products you use to clean your kitchen to create a conscious way of living.
Zissu shows you how to navigate the farmer market, the small neighborhood grocery store and the giant mega supermarket, all with the purpose of bringing home fresh and healthy foods without spend loads of unnecessary cash. She makes her argument for a home garden and buying locally for both environmental and health reasons.
What I like most about this book was that there was a lot of knowledge to gleam from it and it was presented in a way that I didn’t feel overwhelmed with new vocabulary and ideas.
