Nourishing Friends: healthy eating

Nourishing Friends.jpgThe holidays are full of rich and sweet foods. But it's probably a good idea not to give up healthy meals altogether.

Here's a little inspiration for us. A new local cookbook called Nourishing Friends: Recipes for a Healthy Life offers whole foods & Mediterranean recipes, with an emphasis on disease prevention.

It's got the backing of three medical specialists in Montreal and testimonials by celebrities like CFL star Anthony Calvillo, Lise Watier, and Celine Dion. All of the proceeds from the cookbooks go to the McGill University Health Centre and Anthony Calvillo's charity for families dealing with cancer.

Nourishing Friends is the third fundraising cookbook project by author and fundraiser Karen Dubrofsky. Her co-author is Gigi Cohen, who is originally from Israel. She currently runs Juicy Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant on Montreal's Monkland Boulevard and teaches organic cooking there. They join Sonali Karnick in studio.
