"Whole grains and pseudo-grains, when prepared in the traditional way (as our ancestors did), offer to be healthful and delicious additions to your diet. They are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, that help maintain the health of your human ecology system! When you eat meatless meals, you help to protect the planet's natural resources and reduce the effects of climate change, according to United Nations and the University of Chicago." — Candia Lea Cole

* In my cookbook package, you'll get my book, "Gourmet Grains, Main Dishes Made of Nature", which features a buffet of four-season recipes (96 in total).

* You'll get guidance about how to cook "true grains", such as  brown rice, basmati rice, millet, and spelt, as well as "pseudo-grains", such as amaranth, quinoa, teff, and wild rice, which many grain-sensitive people can tolerate.

* You'll get familiar with the delicious whole food ingredients and condiments that I keep in my pantry, and learn about eco-friendly cookware.   

* You'll have the opportunity to watch my "Cookbook Chat" video (to learn about the content of my book) and hear about my some of my recipe faves. 

* You'll be inspired by my mini book, a self-inner-view in which I "deep dish" about the personal and planetary health benefits of eating whole grains, and share nature's wisdom for eating whole. 

Here's a sample of the recipes that I show you how to make on video. They are suitable for everyday dining as well as those special occasions! The recipes in this video package have been featured in several gourmet food and health publications.
