“A Feast for Mind, Body and Spirit: The Ashram Cookbook” Interview by Cristina Cuomo

CC: Can you tell us some foods you recommend eating every day?

CH: Vibrant, leafy salad greens. Add a little of various greens like spring mix, arugula, romaine, chard, kale, mache, mizuna and dandelion to whatever else you are eating. Greens provide chlorophyll, minerals and antioxidants to help you feel satiated. Good sources of fat are important to address inflammation, and have many other health benefits; opt for raw nuts and seeds, cold-pressed oils, olives and avocados. Fermented foods like sauerkraut are vital for gut health. Let’s not forget to have a healthy sweet treat: a beautiful bowl of colorful mixed fresh berries!

"Eat Like Oprah and Cindy Crawford With The Ashram's New Cookbook" by Stephanie Sporn

"Thanks to a new Assouline book, The Ashram Cookbook: The Way We Eat, the retreat's wholesome and delectable food can now be made at home. On Tuesday at Clover Grocery, a market offshoot of the West Village restaurant Cafe Clover, Hedberg and producer Price Arana (Ashram devotee and owner of The Press Cabinet advertising agency) hosted an intimate dinner where guests tried more than 10 of the book's recipes, which were created by Ashram head chef Suzie Spring Bohannon. Dishes ranged from a hearty cream of maitake mushroom soup to nori rolls and baked yams with Moroccan vegetables and cashew sumac yogurt sauce. One could also indulge her sweet tooth with rosé sangria and a slice of scrumptious carrot cake."

"This spiced chocolate concoction is an antioxidant, neurotrophic brain booster that delivers a palpable feel-good mental stimulus without the jittery crash of coffee. It also provides solid immune system and longevity support, counterbalancing and mitigating the physical depletion that often accompanies periods of stress and overexhaustion. The medicinal mushroom known as lion’s mane has been shown to induce Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) synthesis in nerve cells, supporting memory and the nervous system."
