"Chana Rubin provides kosher and sound dietary advice in bite-size tasty nuggets. This book gives excellent science-based nutritional counsel in a way that improves your health while enriching your soul. I heartily recommend it." -- Meir Stampfer, MD, Professor of Epidemiology & Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health "Food for the Soul is a most welcome compilation of thoughtful nutrition, dietary information and representative recipes geared towards a Jewish lifestyle. Food for the Soul is not a cookbook per se, but rather a guidebook for adapting to a healthier lifestyle. Chana Rubin proves that Jewish food, based on eating foods that are tasty and good, can be healthy and delicious." -- Gil Marks Author of the James Beard Award-Winning Olive Trees and Honey & The World of Jewish Cooking "This book offers recipes for 100 relatively simple and very nutritious dishes - three of which I have already tried at home and which were very successful. Some of the entries are categorized as being suitable for Shabbat, a variety of holidays or vegetarians... It would be great if this book were studied diligently by the English-speaking women of observant Jewish households, who have the power to change the diets and lifestyles of their usually large families." -- Judy Siegal-Itzkovich, World Jewish Digest, September 2008 "Chana Rubin's nutritional information is tailored to the needs and obligations of keeping kosher, observing Shabbat and holidays and Jewish cultural connections to food. This is about eating in moderation, with sensitivity, care, pleasure and kavanah, or thoughtfulness." -- Sandee Brawarsky, The Jewish Week
