    Well, I should have expected what I got. Which is why I gave it a 3. She pretty much lost me in the intro when telling me I needed 3 different juicers, that a food blender is a worthy expense and also, you know, have a food dehydrator. Like it's a thing most people can afford, let alone fit into their kitchens. And I'm the type of asshole who reads this kind of book, actually lives in Southern California--where we think acai bowls are regular everyday meals. Take with that what you will.

But yeah, in this fantasy land where I could make my own nut milks and yogurt, and pickle my own veggies, this all sounds pretty great. I'm sure it is; it sounds awesome. I can hardly stand being in the kitchen to assemble a sandwich these days. So, I'll continue to overpay for my food at Sprouts like a heathen.

    Ahhh! This book is gorgeous. I broke my commitment not to buy another cookbook over this one. It has the types of foods I eat when I'm feeling fancy healthy. Just looking at it makes me happy. It's not a diet cookbook, it doesn't focus on telling you to eliminate anything. It just has amazing looking "lazy fancy" food that uses a lot of raw foods, probiotics, fermented foods, green juices and the like. Lots of very recognizable ingredients with a few I've never used.

It just has amazing looking "lazy fancy" food that uses a lot of raw foods, probiotics, fermented foods, green juices and the like. Lots of very recognizable ingredients with a few I've never used. She believes food is medicine and marks all recipes with its most potent benefits. (Energy food, immunity food, metabolism booster, alkalizer, stress reliever, etc). It's got a bit of a magical feel and you will feel like a food goddess when you finish your wellness concoctions.

    Such a gorgeous book and even though a lot of the ingredients may seem unusual or exotic for some people, I’m a bit weird and have had a lot of these ingredients in my pantry for years. I also already consume lots of dairy free nut milks and it was great to open my mind up to some new and interesting ways to use some of the ingredients in the book. I’ve also used some of the Moon Juice herbal supplements like Brain Dust and can highly recommend them for health, wellness and as a safe nootropic.

    I got exactly what I wanted out of this book- pretty pictures and amazing almond milk recipes. It was interesting reading about the author's personal life and path into the wellness industry. However, everything in this book is so labor intensive and doesn't seem to offer much sustenance. I would rather just purchase these items (particularly the dehydrated snacks) instead of spending hours preparing them.

    A unique and beautiful book for the discerning eater. Vegan eater. You must have access to high quality ingredients to make this one work for you. I've got the cilantro celery punch on my list of to-do's. From the book: As I awakened to the healing potential of food, I realized I wanted to create a space where other people could enjoy the beauty and artistry of food while gaining access to its medicinal powers.

    Lovely cookbook jam-packed with lots of amazing plant-based wholesomeness! Really looking forward to incorporating more adaptogens and superfoods into my daily diet - this was an excellent source of inspo! I already use the "moon dusts" as part of my daily ritual, so this is just going to take it to the next level. Lovely cookbook jam-packed with lots of amazing plant-based wholesomeness!

    I thought I checked this off the list when I read it last year - either way, it was an interesting foray into the world of adaptogens. I do wish it was more focused on adaptogens themselves and the science behind them rather than just 2017 era hippie recipes, but it's still got some interesting things to say. This is book is the epitome of the millenial era L.A. food scene, very trendy.

    I loved this creative, imaginative and beautiful cookbook. The photography is spectacular and the recipe ideas are fantastic. Whilst some of the ingredients are not readily available, I love the simplicity and wholesomeness of the recipes. It is the first time I read a cookbook cover to cover and really enjoyed it.

    DELICIOUS food, though inaccessible for average/daily consumption as a lot of prep or boutique ingredients necessary. Still, some of my very favorite foods, products, and recipes. Critique: too many "young-white-woman"-instagram-esque photos.

    a lot of raw and sugar free recipes - although my kitchen and cooking style doesn't contain many of the ingredients. a lot of raw and sugar free recipes - although my kitchen and cooking style doesn't contain many of the ingredients.

    While not always practical, this cookbook is fabulous, filled with interesting anecdotes and recipes. The narrative portions were especially interesting and well-written, and the book as a whole will give you the kick in the pants to really revolutionize how you eat.

    "Cosmic Alchemy for a Thriving Body, Beauty, and Consciousness" With a subtitle like that, this is certainly a cookbook/lifestyle book for a limited readership. I found it to be an interesting book to browse and took away a few ideas and even copied down a few recipes including "Sumac Tomato Jam with Pine Nuts" (though I'll use some other nuts or seeds.) and Chile & Lime Mango. Chapter titles include: Becoming the Alchemist, Rethink the Kitchen, Moon Milks, Shakes & Lattes, Cosmic Provisions and "Cosmic Alchemy for a Thriving Body, Beauty, and Consciousness" With a subtitle like that, this is certainly a cookbook/lifestyle book for a limited readership. I found it to be an interesting book to browse and took away a few ideas and even copied down a few recipes including "Sumac Tomato Jam with Pine Nuts" (though I'll use some other nuts or seeds.) and Chile & Lime Mango. Chapter titles include: Becoming the Alchemist, Rethink the Kitchen, Moon Milks, Shakes & Lattes, Cosmic Provisions and The Unbakery. The book opens with the ten tenets of the Moon Kitchen: 1.Get raw 2.Get alkalized 3.mineralize 4.get good fat 5.slow your glycemic roll 6.rewild yourself 7.embrace enzymes 8.amino-fy 9.adopt adaptogens 10.vote organic. The tenets are explained and a list of high functioning is given with benefits of each food explained. There's a moon guide which that list specific benefits derived from the recipes. Benefits such as brain activator, digestive aid, aphrodisiac, energy food, inflammation tamer and so on......Just check the book out from your library and give it a read if you're looking for an introduction to a raw, clean diet.

    I really wanted to love this book. It was on my wishlist forever and I was counting down the days until it came out. While in enjoyed the 1st half of the book which was talking about the different "superfood powders" and such. The recipes just didn't really do it for me. There were a few juice, milk, and smoothie type recipes that seemed just ok. The entree style recipes were neither appetizing or practical.

I actually have almost all of the "superfood powders" in the book required to make the recipes but if you are someone who didnt it would cost you quite a bit to be able to make this book worth it. I knew to expect that this book would require these type of ingredients but once I received it a lot of the recipes just came across as pretentious. There was a section of recipes that were just broth. They were supposed to be an alternative to bone broth but really neither are necessary. I just had to roll my eyes. The book is beautiful though, however it wasn't pretty enough for me to keep it.
