A Simple Table – Chi-Wan and Natali Stajcic

Recipes and Rituals for a Life in Balance.

A Simple Table is a delightful gift book, with a simple cover and beautiful photography.

If you enjoy uncomplicated, no-fuss food then the recipes are perfect.  This is a book you can delve into at anytime – either to choose a recipe just for fun or even to try out a new lifestyle regime. Options range from solo dining to family mid week meals.

The pudding recipes are a major factor of the book’s unique approach. The use of natural sweeteners such as dates, coconut, and fruit, changes your taste towards sugar and reduces intake of refined sugars, which are a major cause of many health problems, such as heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.

Delicious examples include blood orange and pistachio, or roast rhubarb with coconut sugar – and the hidden advantage is that with natural sugars you only need to consume a small amount!

Further chapters in the book help you to choose various ways to change your lifestyle patterns, including include how to change your everyday rituals from beauty recipes to relaxation techniques.

One technique that is highlighted is dry brushing  – “Your skin plays an essential role in eliminating body impurities and you can give this a helping hand with this through dry skin brushing which strips off the dead skin cells and stimulates the lymphatic system.”

Using the above relaxes and calms the mind. An ideal brush is one made from all natural fibres, best done just before a shower.

This is just one of many healthy-lifestyle techniques described in ‘A Simple Table’: others include mouthwash recipe, face mist, and a face mask recipe.

This is a great reference book to help you lead a balanced life from dealing with healthy food to individual lifestyle choices.

A Simple Table’is available from all good bookshops and online from Amazon.   Price £25.00.
