Staff Reviews

This book feels like an invitation to a holistic and integrative practice, rather than a cookbook. Jennifer Iserloh has divided her recipes into chapters that each have a clear intention—immune strength, mental calm and clarity, healthy digestion—and she includes recipes for home products like toothpaste and essential oil cleaners to round out the experience. She’s infinitely thoughtful and uses her background in nutrition to craft delicious, healthy, and always beautifully interesting recipes. Pull together a savory vanilla sweet potato soup to detox the liver, roast buttered Brazil nuts for thyroid health, and learn the benefits of tulsi, turmeric, and lemongrass along the way. Cheers!

Unlock the health benefits of nature's most powerful foods with supercharged vegetarian recipes

The Superfood Alchemy Cookbook shares a powerful approach to wellness. Chef and health coach Jennifer Iserloh shows how cooking like an alchemist provides a way to integrate healing practices into your everyday routine. Create dishes to:
  • Boost immunity
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Restore and maintain gut health
  • Encourage mental focus and mood balance
  • Support gentle detox
These recipes bring together nature's strongest ingredients - superfoods, adaptogens, essential oils, and healing herbs and spices - in delicious combinations that increase their healing properties. (For example, most of us know that cooking tomatoes boosts the fruits' heart-healing lycopene, but did you know that pairing turmeric with black pepper helps the body get the most from its anti-inflammatory compounds?) Each chapter also shares simple home remedies, natural body treatments, and powerful rituals for wellness in body and soul.
