From the author of Clean Green Eats, a Japanese-inspired guide to finding balance, joy, and good health A Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up for wellness that emphasizes a simple, streamlined method for cleaning up your eating habits and offers modern-day applications of ancient Japanese healing practices and philosophy Candice Kumai has always treasured the Japanese traditions that shaped her childhood. In recent years, she's been spending more time in Japan, meeting with relatives and absorbing the culture. It was on one of those trips that she visited a Kintsugi master and found the guiding inspiration for her next book. Kintsugi is an art form that reconstructs broken pottery, sealing the pieces together with gold to create something that is even more beautiful for all of its cracks and flaws. In Kintsugi Wellness, Candice shows us how this ancient Japanese practice can be applied to our lives to achieve radiant health. Part 1: Lifestyle introduces the Japanese art of living and aging well, from spending more time with family + nature and honoring the seasons (and the impact of the seasons your body) to reconnecting with ancestors + learning of adaptation, discipline, humility and kaizen (continuous improvement). Part 2: Mind explores the ways in which the mind and body are inextricably linked in Japanese wellness philosophies, showing readers how the philosophy of golden repair can be applied in cleansing rituals, meditation, and soothing traditions. Part 3: Heart shows us how to incorporate a greater sense of connection and gratitude into our lives through community, spirituality, personal relationships, nature, respect and family the cornerstones of Japanese culture. Part 4: Nutrition offers detailed information on essential Japanese ingredients (including superfoods like green tea/matcha, miso, and fermented foods) as well as traditional cooking traditions and methods, with forty whole-food recipes including California style bowls, miso, soba, temaki (hand-roll) sushi, bento boxes and more. The philosophy of kintsugi is not about perfection it is about healing, becoming whole, and finding the beauty in our imperfections. Written in Candice's warm, conversational style, Kintsugi Wellness offers readers the tools to mend what ails them and to embrace and celebrate what makes them unique.
