In this poignant and insightful memoir, Pratibha Masand Sachdev offers homage to her grandmother’s life and culinary skills. By sharing her life journey, the art of intuitive cooking, and the simple science of self-nurture, she encourages us to return to our roots, seeking the answers from the universe within us. She reminds us gently that too often we fail to see the sun that is already lit within our soul, while we seek a lamp from others.
Offering over 108 simple food and skincare recipes for radiance, she talks about her own healing journey—her rediscovery and simple daily application of Ayurveda and how she connected with her inner wisdom by paying attention to the ebb and flow of her emotions. This journey of an ordinary woman who was privileged to have extraordinary experiences and transform her life will engage readers as they travel along with her.
As you traverse through these pages, your own recipe for good health and radiance awaits you. Compound it, and be your own pharmacist. Explore and discover that healing light within you and Let It Glow!
