Making Peace Before You Eat

Making Peace Before You Eat


More than the 80 delicious gluten free, plant-based recipes bound together with stunning photography – this book will enrich, nourish and deeply inspire a beautiful way of living.

Angie has spent many years catering the best yoga retreats across Australia and draws from this rich experience when creating her stunning recipes. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to experience one of her meals at a yoga retreat you’ll know that every mouthful of her organic and biodynamic dishes are a sensory explosion of joy, taste and nourishment.

Our digestive systems are already multitasking. They’re busy breaking food down, extracting nutrients, discarding what’s not needed, feeding our microbiome, producing acid, releasing bile, making enzymes, secreting hormones… Is it any wonder they work less optimally if we add stress or rush in the mix?

As we move through the pages, we find ourselves making a contract with our bodies and minds: peace of mind before food; connection to our food, awareness of textures, tastes, seasons and colours; awareness of what enables us to best thrive; connection to people we love; good conversation, curiosity, listening, sharing and bonding.

This is Angie’s food, and the recipes in this book all have huge helpings of joy and deliciousness. Set your table, pick some flowers and celebrate the food you have, the miracle that allows us to live this life. Let go of fear and invite grace to share the table with you. I wish you much joy and deliciousness at your table and in your life.

In a busy world, spending time quietly enjoying our meal is often not a priority. We eat while working or watching television, on the computer or phone, distracted with social media, or lost in our daily concerns and the endless to-do list. The impact is that the state of the body while eating is often contracted and even stressed; and it’s affecting our minds and our ability to digest optimally.

Making Peace Before You Eat is the companion app to Angie Cowen’s much-anticipated second book, and has been designed to help you bring in connection, gratitude and the stillness of the present moment, wherever you may be.

The app offers audio meditations and rituals in a beautifully designed, easy-to-use format, and also includes a weekly meditation tracker and mindful map, showing a heat map of where in the world the mindful community is practicing with the app.

Available now on the App Store, and coming soon to Google Play.
