by Sharon Gannon —
Since 1984, Jivamukti yoga has been synonymous with a new way of living peacefully, healthfully and consciously.
Dedicated instructors teaching and sending the message of kindness have inspired a global revolution.
In 2006, Gannon and David Life opened the Jivamuktea Café to complement their yoga school as a living expression of how compassionate spiritual activism can be put to practical use.
It was an immediate success, and the peaceful ambiance, camaraderie and delicious, hearty fare struck a chord with patrons who were thrilled to eliminate meat and dairy from their diets without sacrificing taste.
Thousands of customers have become fans of Gannon’s cruelty-free burritos, chocolate mousse and flower salads.
Now, for the first time, she presents the secrets behind the café’s acclaimed menu and showcases her own home cooking with recipes she has been making for family and friends for decades, along with beautiful pictures of some of them.
Stalwart vegans, vegetarians and omnivores who are part-time vegan for its health and environmental benefits, will embrace Gannon’s accessible, delicious and spiritually powerful recipes.
