In Recipes from the Herbalist’s Kitchen, Brittany Wood Nickerson offers us a personal, almost magical lesson in how we are the hero in our own healing journey. Her confidence in each of us to be able to connect with our bodies so that we may begin to take care of ourselves is evident throughout this beautifully written and photographed book. I hesitate to call it a cookbook even though the recipes within are the kind that I have already tabbed to make again. The vibrant green and pleasantly sweet cilantro lemonade, which I made for the Mediterranean Living crew last weekend, will definitely find itself on my table for years to come.

The Turkish recipes in this cookbook are mainly from Southern Turkey and Ozlem’s hometown of Antakya. She really stresses seasonality and using the best ingredients possible. The recipes use olive oil, yogurt, bulgur wheat, eggplant, pomegranate, chili flakes, and lots of herbs and spices to create healthy, traditional recipes. When Ozlem starts trying a new recipe, the first thing she does is call her mother. This shows how these recipes are being passed down generation to generation. Ozlem is excited to share these recipes with her two children who are set to carry on the traditions.

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”

Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
