Cooks & Books Presents Abbey Rodriguez and Jennifer Kurdyla | Root & Nourish
Join us for a conversation with Abbey Rodriguez and Jennifer Kurdyla, authors of Root & Nourish: An Herbal Cookbook for Women's Wellness, featuring more than 100 whole-food, plant-based, gluten-free herbal recipes, designed around the most common health concerns of modern women.
In Root & Nourish, wellness experts Rodriguez and Kurdyla teach women how to incorporate herbalism into their busy lives to restore and maintain their unique state of health. Expanding the herbal repertoire beyond teas and tinctures to include wholesome breakfasts, satisfying mains, indulgent desserts, and a full menu of teas and beverages for day and night, it’s the first cookbook of its kind to pair everyday herbal cooking with women’s health concerns—specifically related to digestion, mental health, and female reproductive hormonal health. Alongside affordable, seasonal, and sustainable recipes, Root & Nourish features mindfulness and holistic lifestyle practices drawn from yoga and Ayurveda that will help incorporate wellness into every part of the day.
