Food to Soothe the Soul
Hello and welcome to Food to Soothe the Soul – the exciting first e-cookbook from The Mindfulness Kitchen!
I’ve found food to be a great medium through which to express creativity, to connect with loved ones and to practise a little mindfulness. The past 6 years I’ve been struggling with mental health issues and recently I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Whilst once my joy of cooking was 24/7, in the past few years I’ve found that as my mood has been swinging all over the place like a monkey on steroids my passion for cooking has risen and fallen with these swings.
So I started my blog, The Mindfulness Kitchen, and rather than viewing cooking as the challenging creative outlet I had always used it for before, I began to work out how I could use cooking to support me through the highs and lows of life.
This book is laid out in 5 chapters, each one stuffed with recipes perfect for a particular mood – Easy, Nourishing, Comforting, Fun and Quick. Whatever the weather, whatever the need, there’s a recipe in there for every occasion (and every mood!).
For every e-book sold I'm donating all the profits to Mind - a wonderful charity that campaigns for better mental health support and resources for everyone. I've set the price at £5 to make it as affordable as possible, however if you are able please consider donating more. Anything above the production costs will go directly to Mind, so anything you add on to the £5 minimum will automatically go to this incredible charity!
Together we can start to break down the stigma surrounding mental health and work towards a future in which everyone has access to the support they need. Whether it's through a donation, a conversation or a self-care baking session, every little thing helps towards improving our collective wellbeing!
