Acquired Book By: I am a regular tour hostess for blog tours via Cedar Fort whereupon I am thankful to have such a diverse amount of novels and non-fiction titles to choose amongst to host. I received a complimentary copy of “Crave. Eat. Heal.” direct from the publisher Front Table Books (imprint of Cedar Fort, Inc) in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive compensation for my opinions or thoughts shared herein.

Why I had a heap of happy expectation about this cookbook:

After having the chance to talk with the author of Crave. Eat. Heal. I must confess, I was even more excited than I was originally when I caught sight of the book coming up on tour! When your seeking a healthier route to pursue in cookery and bakery explorations, you start to gather a proper sense about finding something that has the potential of being a wicked good read! For me, when I read the premise of how this cookbook was created and what drew the inspiration behind it’s creation of the writer to give it flight to home cooks and gourmet chefs alike, wells, I couldn’t wait to dig inside it’s pages!

I think we can all relate to the key topic points of craving food, thriving on what we eat, and seek a wellness of healing through foods which strengthen us rather than deplete our energy. We each take our own journey towards health and wellness, as these are just my own ruminative thoughts on a personal quest to unearthing recipes, cookbooks, and the cookery joy in finding like-minded cooks who find connection of insight within the folds of where food can lead us to venture.

Before you read my thoughts below, I encourage you to retreat inside our conversation and see what came of our joyful exchanges of foodie discussions!

About Annie Oliverio

Annie Oliverio

If there is an unnamed, undiagnosed condition where one suffers from planning, thinking about, and anticipating future breakfasts, lunches, and dinners while eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner, then I have it. And I don’t want to be cured. But I wouldn’t be opposed to having this ailment named after me.

I was fortunate to be raised in a home with two excellent cooks: my mom and dad. Mom covered the basics of breakfasts, lunches in brown paper bags, and a square meal at night. She also covered Thanksgiving and Easter dinners. Dad took over on Christmas Eve or whenever an ingredient—be it a stinky cheese or olives or eggplant or artichokes or polenta—caught his fancy. Sauce splatters and piles of pots and pans in the sink were guaranteed. Between mom and dad, my three siblings and I ate eclectically and well.

My own culinary journey got off to a rocky start when I began living on my own post-college. I went for convenience and speed (and sugary, fatty, salty) rather than quality. Slowly, however, I began buying more fresh and whole foods to make my own meals. At the same time, I was learning about what foods are best for our bodies. Long story short, my plodding and indirect journey led me to plant-based eating. I no longer rely on packaged, frozen, or prepared meals, and instead make everything we need right here in our own kitchen.

What about the non-food part of my life? Before escaping the mean city streets for the wild, windy plains of Oklahoma, I was an administrative assistant and office manager at a subscription fulfillment company in Boulder, at a think-tank in Santa Monica, at a university in Cambridge, MA, in the Green Zone in Baghdad, and at a non-profit in Washington, D.C.

I now spend a good deal of time walking the pastures trying to identify different types of grasses and insects, feeding hummingbirds, writing and reading, struggling to solve crossword puzzles (with a pen and a lot of Wite-Out), and blogging at An Unrefined Vegan and Virtual Vegan Potluck. I live in blissful satellite- and cable-free isolation with my husband, Kel, and our only son, Ike (part dachshund, part Labrador).

It isn’t everyday a bookish foodie like me has the honour of interviewing such a warm and engaging cookbook author such as Ms Oliverio! I felt a connection to her cookbook Crave. Eat. Heal. from the moment I first started to read about it’s premise, as it’s not a secret of mine to return back to being a veghead vegan! I openly discuss where I am right now on my path as an omnivore and how I very much seek the hours in the future to where I can return to living off of farm fresh fruit and veg, whilst returning to a lifestyle which is a solace to my soul. I mirror my reasons for appreciating a lifestyle of whole foods and locally sourced produce as Ms Oliverio — eating healthier in a manner that is both harmonic to the natural environ and the rhythm of your own body is the best way to seek wellness because your eating towards what enlivens your own spirit.
I love being able to gather together books to review and showcase as much as the writers who pen them to offer a topical conversation on cookery and ambrosial delights because at the heart of my bookish soul lies a foodie whose breaking into her own rockin’ confidence in the kitchen! I love engaging with people about a variety of subjects inter-related to the bookish culture we all enjoy residing inside however, when I took up the conversation with Ms Oliverio, I wanted to keep our conversation ‘food centric’ and imperative to the pursuit of eating well and thriving as we progress forward on our own individual journey.
I am itching to read Crave. Eat. Heal. as the print edition will be arriving next month which gave me plenty of time to dream about what I’d find inside it’s chapters — to quay my curiosity, I delighted in the joy of finding a happy conversationalist to converse with for today’s tour stop! I hope dear hearts, you find equal joy in reading it!
