The Jewish preoccupation with nourishment, diets, and the enjoyment of eating is often a source of humor. But nourishment is more than just food in the Jewish tradition: our eating habits determine how we are nourished on many levels, not just the physical. In this third volume of his trilogy, Rabbi Bonder teaches us about creating a healthy exhcnage between ourselves and our environment. The discussion includes:

- how to eat consciously, with ecological and political awareness
- how to connect with the energetic essence of our food
- how to avoid becoming overweight--in the emotional, spiritual, and moral as well as physical sense
- the inner meaning of religious customs and laws concerning food and eating

Rabbi Bonder draws on parables and teachings of the Talmudic sages and Hasidic masters and examines a well-known text of Jewish law, the Shulhan Arukh, for its practical insights into diet and other concerns of daily life.
