A New Way to Food

100 Recipes to Encourage a Healthy Relationship with Food, Nourish Your Beautiful Body, and Celebrate Real Wellness for Life

Eat like you’re worthy of good health–recipes, heart-opening stories, and empowering lessons to help you let go of your struggles with eating and create a positive relationship with food.

Until Maggie Battista discovered the foods and recipes that made her finally see herself as worthy of good health, she had a lifetime of struggle with eating. In this kind and generous cookbook, she shares more than one hundred mostly wholesome, mainly dairy-free, plant-based, and always refined sugar-free recipes that helped her find her way to good health, lose seventy pounds, and rid herself of years of chronic aches and pains. A New Way to Food is a nourishing cookbook with heart that will guide you to a new way to eat. Gain the inspiration and motivation to make healthy eating work for you, and discover ways to make wholesome organic ingredients permanent fixtures in your kitchen. The over 100 recipes here cover breakfasts, quick lunches, and nourishing dinners, and offer healthy updates on comfort foods and date night dinners. With a focus on plant-based eating, some meat dishes are also included. In addition, A New Way to Food is also part jubilant memoir, filled with the sort of gripping fat girl stories so many women (and men) will relate to and genuinely feel, catching glimpses of themselves within the essays that open each chapter. The recipes are arranged into chapters that chronicle her struggles, victories, and lessons from finally reconciling her relationship with food–providing a playbook of ways she began to see herself with kinder eyes, so you, too, can find a new way to food.
