Moroccan Chickpea Soup"I feel like I talked way too long," said author Rebecca Katz.  "I thought you would interrupt me if you needed to."

When what you have to say is not only fascinating, engaging, and critically important to anyone tuned into the show, why break in and disturb the flow.  That's exactly how I felt listening to Rebecca talk about her new book, The Healthy Mind Cookbook. My hope is you will take the time to listen to her.  I believe her approach to food, nutrition, and cooking can make the kitchen a safe place to experiment and grow in for those who presently are not comfortable there, and also broadens the perspective of seasoned cooks by introducing them to a wide variety of previously unthought of flavor possibilities.

If you sign up for her newletter at she'll send you her "Culinary Magic and the Power of Yum" infographic.  Also, I recommend you check out her recipe for "Magic Mineral Broth."

She has kindly allowed me to reprint the recipe for one of her favorite soups.  You can find it at the bottom of this post.  Rebecca's latest book is one I highly recommend to help you understand how the nutrition in foods can strengthen the mind and body, and ways to creatively integrate those foods into your diet.

In the second half of the show, "Iowa Cooks," we'll continue the discussion about the human brain and how foods aid mental and physical health with our guest, neuroscientist Dr. Alaric Arenander. You can check out his website here. 

I recently returned from a trip to Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and New York.  For a complete report on my food adventures, restaurant recommendations, and other culinary observations sign up for my free and infrequent GREAT TASTE eletter at  That report will be available later this week so sign up now.
