I’ve been a student of yoga off and on for many years, but it was only when I found my current teacher, Aidan Casey, that my yoga practice really started to take off. One evening at class, Aidan suggested to his pupils a change of diet. From that moment, my eating habits and my life changed forever. I set out on a great journey of discovery, of which this book is a milestone.
Kriya Tma, Jivan Charv, Om Teertha and Krishna Das, of the Satyananda Yoga Academy, Mangrove, gave generously of their wisdom and their many years of study.
Barbara Konkolowicz, with her usual patience and great way with a camera, took all of the photos except the cover shot, which is by Kim Steele.
Linda Bugarin earned my gratitude and respect for her precise and insightful editing and proofreading. Scribe Consulting and fidlow design provided excellent professional support in this exciting business of e-publishing.
I have drawn recipes for this book from many sources, but would particularly like to acknowledge Marcella Hazan, Margaret Fulton, Jill Dupleix, Ian Parmenter, Joan Campbell, Michelle Trute and Stephanie Alexander.
My dear friends Anna, Alan, Polly, Barbara, Steve, Margaret, Marie, David, Brenda and many more gave encouragement and ideas. To all of them go my heartfelt thanks.
