Feng Shui Gourmet gives the reader a different perspective to the kitchen and cooking in it. In the Chinese culture, and according to the theories of Feng Shui, the kitchen is much more than a space to prepare meals. The kitchen is considered one of the areas that can improve the family's health and wealth. Feng Shui masters often stress the importance of having a well-designed kitchen where the oven, hob and washbasin have specific positions. The concept of Yin and Yang and the five elements are the fundamental theory of Feng Shui and occupies the heart of Chinese philosophy. It is believed to be the essence of nature, where everything is in a perpetual state of change. All the recipes have been tried and prepared in several home kitchens to make sure that they can be done at home.Elemental qualities are also included in this book to give readers a better understanding of the relation between Feng Shui and food.

Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Weight Loss gives definitive answers to the question, "Why is it so hard to lose weight?" It is because we have missed or ignored the most important pieces in the puzzle of how our bodies determine whether to store or burn fat. Those puzzle pieces are hormones such as insulin, cortisol, leptin, and others. Individuals with food allergies or gluten intolerance face additional weight-loss challenges such as inflammation due to allergies or a diet too high in rice. This book explains how to put your body chemistry and hormones to work for you rather than against you, reduce inflammation which inhibits the action of your master weight control hormone, leptin, and flip your fat switch from "store" to "burn." It includes a flexible healthy eating plan that eliminates hunger, promotes the burning of fat, and reduces inflammation and tells how to customize the plan so it fits you, your allergies or intolerances, and your need for pleasure in what you eat. Information about cooking for special diets, 175 recipes, a list of sources for special foods, and extensive appendix and reference sections are also included.
