Eating fills more than physical needs, which might be why we are inclined to gorge on fatty foods when feeling tired or depressed. Deborah Kesten posits that different types of food affect, not merely reflect, emotions, that how one prepares and proceeds to dine actually affects not only our emotions, but also our physical and social well-being. Kesten encourages the reader to take a kaleidoscope approach to food that appreciates its true multidimensionality. Combining scientific fact with traditional food practices from around the globe, Kesten provides reasons and ways to benefit from the six healing secrets of food — socializing, feelings, mindfulness, appreciation, connection, and optimal eating.

A story of food and love, injury and healing, Keeping the Feast is the triumphant memoir of one couple's nourishment and restoration in Italy after a period of tragedy, and the extraordinary sustaining powers of food, family, and friendship. Paula and John met in Italy, fell in love, and four years later, married in Rome. But less than a month after the wedding, tragedy struck. They had transferred from their Italian paradise to Warsaw and while reporting on an uprising in Romania, John was shot and nearly killed by sniper fire. Although he recovered from his physical wounds in less than a year, the process of healing had just begun. Unable to regain his equilibrium, he sank into a deep sadness that reverberated throughout their relationship. It was the abrupt end of what they'd known together, and the beginning of a new phase of life neither had planned for. All of a sudden, Paula was forced to reexamine her marriage, her husband, and herself. Paula began to reconsider all of her previous assumptions about healing. She discovered that sometimes patience can be a vice, anger a virtue. That sometimes it is vital to make demands of the sick, that they show signs of getting better. And she rediscovered the importance of the most fundamental of human rituals: the daily sharing of food around the family table. A universal story of hope and healing, Keeping the Feast is an account of one couple's triumph over tragedy and illness, and a celebration of the simple rituals of life, even during the worst life crises. Beautifully written and tremendously moving, Paula's story is a testament to the extraordinary sustaining powers of food and love, and to the stubborn belief that there is always an afterward, there is always hope.

Discover neglected wild food sources--that can also be used as medicine! The long-standing notion of "food as medicine, medicine as food," can be traced back to Hippocrates. Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine is a global overview of wild and semi-domesticated foods and their use as medicine in traditional societies. Important cultural information, along with extensive case studies, provides a clear, authoritative look at the many neglected food sources still being used around the world today. This book bridges the scientific disciplines of medicine, food science, human ecology, and environmental sciences with their ethno-scientific counterparts of ethnobotany, ethnoecology, and ethnomedicine to provide a valuable multidisciplinary resource for education and instruction. Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine presents respected researchers' in-depth case studies on foods different cultures use as medicines and as remedies for nutritional deficiencies in diet. Comparisons of living conditions in different geographic areas as well as differences in diet and medicines are thoroughly discussed and empirically evaluated to provide scientific evidence of the many uses of these traditional foods as medicine and as functional foods. The case studies focus on the uses of plants, seaweed, mushrooms, and fish within their cultural contexts while showing the dietary and medical importance of these foods. The book provides comprehensive tables, extensive references, useful photographs, and helpful illustrations to provide clear scientific support as well as opportunities for further thought and study. Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine explores the ethnobiology of: Tibet--antioxidants as mediators of high-altitude nutritional physiology Northeast Thailand--"wild" food plant gathering Southern Italy--the consumption of wild plants by Albanians and Italians Northern Spain--medicinal digestive beverages United States--medicinal herb quality Commonwealth of Dominica--humoral medicine and food Cuba--promoting health through medicinal foods Brazil--medicinal uses of specific fishes Brazil--plants from the Amazon and Atlantic Forest Bolivian Andes--traditional food medicines New Patagonia--gathering of wild plant foods with medicinal uses Western Kenya--uses of traditional herbs among the Luo people South Cameroon--ethnomycology in Africa Morocco--food medicine and ethnopharmacology Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine is an essential research guide and educational text about food and medicine in traditional societies for educators, students from undergraduate through graduate levels, botanists, and research specialists in nutrition and food science, anthropology, agriculture, ethnoecology, ethnobotany, and ethnobiology.
