Harvard Book Store welcomes celebrated cookbook author MAGGIE BATTISTA—the founder and director of Eat Boutique—for a discussion of her latest cookbook, A New Way to Food: 100 Recipes to Encourage a Healthy Relationship with Food, Nourish Your Beautiful Body, and Celebrate Real Wellness for Life.

About A New Way to Food

Discover a body-positive approach to food through nourishing recipes, heart-opening stories, and helpful lessons on creating a healthy relationship with food.

Maggie Battista struggled with eating and dieting her whole life, until she discovered the foods and recipes that made her finally see herself as worthy of good health. In this kind and generous cookbook she shares the more than one hundred mostly wholesome, mainly dairy-free, plant-based, and always refined sugar-free recipes that helped her find her way to good health, lose seventy pounds, and rid herself of years of chronic aches and pains. With stories that chronicle her struggles, victories, and lessons from finally reconciling her relationship with food; tips and advice on changing your own approach to food; and recipes for every time of day and occasion; A New Way to Food is the playbook for seeing yourself with kinder eyes and enjoying every meal along the way.

Praise

"More than a cookbook, Maggie Battista's A New Way to Food is a love story about her learning to accept herself and, along the way, inspiring us to evaluate our own relationships with ourselves and our bodies. If I could change one thing about it, it would be the ability to go back in time and give my younger self a copy." Julia Turshen, author of Now & Again, Feed the Resistance, and Small Victories

"Maggie Battista’s A New Way to Food is more than a diverse collection of nutritious and beautiful recipes. It is an essential statement about empowerment through healthy self-care. With this cookbook/self-help hybrid, Maggie shows us more than A New Way to Food; she shows us the way to a better self." Andie Mitchell, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir It Was Me All Along and Eating in the Middle

"A New Way to Food is filled with in-depth knowledge about realizing your beautiful authentic potential, reckoning with your past and loving yourself all while eating Maggie's incredibly delicious recipes along the way. This cookbook is filled with fresh, clean and delicious options for any season from Blueberry Plum Crisp Pie to Sweet Potato Gnocchi. I cannot recommend this cookbook enough. It will truly shift your perspective about what being healthy and beautiful really means inside and out." Amie Valpone, bestselling author of Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body
