What’s On My Bookshelf

I’ve collected many books over the years of studying health, food, alternative healing, veganism, macrobiotics, spirituality, food policy, etc. Here’s what I have on my bookshelves. Wow, this feels like getting naked in a room full of strangers!

Notable mentions and books missing that have been loaned out:

The China Study

by T. Colin Campbell

Don’t Eat This Book by Morgan Spurlock

Anything by Dr. Neal Barnard

Macrobiotic for Dummies by Verne Varona

Love, Sanae by Sanae Suzuki (doing interview with her soon!)

Staying Health With The Seasons by Elson M. Haas, M.D.

Sugar Blues by William Duffy

You would probably expect me to have more cookbooks, but I really don’t use them that much. And there are so many amazing blogs and resources for recipes online. If I’m thinking up an idea and want some help I usually just do a Google search and peruse what I find online. Or I check cookbooks out at the library.

Cookbooks that I swear by are:

Anything by Christina Pirello

Terry Walters new Clean Food

Cookbooks I’ve checked out lately:

Love, Sanae by Sanae Suzuki

The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone

The Gluten-free Vegan by Susan O’Brien

Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Cookbooks that I need to buy (any suggestions?):

The Conscious Cook by Tal Ronnen

500 Vegan Recipes by Celine Steen and Joni Marie Newman

  1. I love looking at other people’s book shelves. Thanks for the peek! Funny your comment about showing your books being “like getting naked in a room full of strangers!”

    The book that saved my life was one I read (in 1983 or 4) was about a man who healed his pancreatic cancer by following a macrobiotic diet. When I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and was told that even with conventional medicine (which I did some of) that my cancer would most likely come back within a year, I decided to embark on my macrobiotic journey. I never looked back and I remain cancer-free and healthy.

    I later went on to write my on healing story Becoming Whole, The Story Of My Complete Recovery From Breast Cancer. That’s my book recommendation and I’d be happy to send you a complimentary copy (looks like it’s not on your shelf!).

    Best wishes,

    Meg Wolff


  2. You are right it is not there on my shelf yet! Like I said, I rarely by books these days. A lot of those you see were ones I bought 5 years ago while in macrobiotic culinary school or they are gifts from friends.

    I would love a copy of your book Meg! I can feature it at my new Basics Series and do a review on my blog.
