Crazy Sexy Kitchen is the latest offering from the inspirational New York Times best selling author Kris Carr. If you are unfamiliar with this amazing women, then you have to learn more about her by visiting her website.
I have talked repeatedly about the need to view your life as an end-to-end system, instead of developing a silo thinking mentality. When a person is considering going on a diet this is what I refer to as silo thinking. If you are living a Lean Life then you are thinking about the bigger picture. There are no diets, instead your eating habits becomes a way of life.
On Valentines Day, 2003, Carr was diagnosed with a rare form of incurable stage four cancer that left her in limbo land. What Carr did was amazing. She decided to take matters into her own hands, and through a massive jolt of emotional arousal she made a fundamental choice to live a healthy and wholesome life. The Crazy Sexy way of life began.
When you create a lifestyle change that affects what you eat, recipes become extremely important. They take a huge load off a brain that is already trying to over compensate itself with the flood of new ideals that are passing the rusty barriers. Crazy Sexy Kitchen is co-authored by the celebrity whole foods chef Chad Sarno and there are also contributions from Pam Brown, Peter A. Cervoni, Fran Costigan, Richard Landau and Sarma Melngailis.
The book is cleverly divided into four courses: Philosophy, Preparation, Kitchen Know-How and Crazy Sexy Recipes. The focus is on plant empowered living and with more than 150 recipes crammed into these juicy pages, it will become sodden, sullied and scruffy in know time, as it takes pride of place on your work surface, alongside your chopping board and blender.
“Some people flock to plant-empowered living for better health; others for spiritual beliefs, animal welfare, respect for the environment, or, best of all, because it tastes great.” – Kris Carr
I used this book throughout the month of July when I became vegetarian for a month and I can concur. My sense of taste and smell has heightened and I am just not compelled to eat things like meat, sugar and processed food anymore.
I will write about my favourite recipes in the coming days, but rest assured, these recipes are easy to make, can be batched and spread out throughout the week to reduce cost and they all taste delicious.
Crazy Sexy Kitchen is Crazy Sexy Good.
