How Does It Work?
Spice Yourself Slim is a healthy, flavourful way of eating based on
centuries-old traditions of combining tasty spices with fresh ingredients
to lose weight and maintain energy. It is a simple way of eating for the
whole of your life. Most diets involve a ‘crash and burn’ timeframe but
this is exactly why most diets tend not to work in the long term. For so
long people have tried everything to lose weight or to maintain a good
weight through short quick-fix diets, and while these diets may help to
lose weight temporarily, statistics show that 95 per cent of dieters will
fail to maintain weight loss. Diets tend to make you change your
normal eating habits, deny yourself eating certain foods, and eat
boring, bland foods you don’t enjoy, or grapple with complicated meal
plans. Often, you have to eat these dishes on your own while everyone
around you is enjoying their meals. Dieting is thought of as a
temporary fix with an end date. It is not seen as lifestyle change, so
mentally most people are counting the days to when their diet is over.
However, research also shows that if you can enjoy your meals, feel
positive about the foods you are eating, because of their taste and
nutrition, and share them with family and friends, you are more likely
to succeed. Spice Yourself Slim is packed with recipes that you can
enjoy and will help you to be successful in your diet.
Each recipe uses simple, natural ingredients and combines them with
one or a combination of healthy spices to create wonderful low-fat
dishes. For example, try rubbing a tablespoon of sumac (a wonderful
Middle Eastern berry-coloured spice) into a few pieces of chicken then
stir-frying them with a little olive oil, and you will have a delicious,
zesty-flavoured chicken dish. The sumac doesn’t add any calories at all.
Alternatively, add cumin seeds to fresh vegetables before cooking and a
sprinkling of roasted ground cumin at the end, and you will have a
plate of food that will sing with aromas and tastes. You will also feel
good as the cumin contains iron and other vitamins.
Spice Yourself Slim will show you which spices you need. I have used
ten spices that are normally found in most kitchen storecupboards as
well as some exciting new spices which I hope you will enjoy trying.

Introduction
Spices are powerhouses of flavour and health and have the crucial
benefits of being calorie and fat free. Spice Yourself Slim shows you a
simple and healthy way of eating using the power of spices to enjoy
tasty food and to maintain good health. This is not an invented
contemporary fad. It has a strong foundation in centuries’ old
knowledge and traditions. This book seeks to unwrap the secret
mysteries of one of the oldest, most valued and most mystically
powerful food sources known to mankind – spices – and shows how
they can be incorporated into contemporary recipes that can have a
dramatic impact on not just our diets, but also on our health and lifestyle.

A tried and tested diet, Spice Yourself Slim guarantees weight loss
while allowing you to enjoy flavourful food at every meal. At a time
when Western tastes are ever more receptive to spices, not just Indian
(chilli, garam masala, turmeric, coriander), Chinese (Szechuan, fivespice,
star anise), Mexican (smoked chipotle chillies), and traditional
spices (cloves, cinnamon, fennel), but also the Middle Eastern spices
which are exciting metropolitan foodies (sumac, za’atar, ras el hanout),
we still know very little about them. This book unlocks their magic,
fusing traditional spice secrets with simple modern recipes for today.
We live in an age in which we can enjoy the best cuisines from around
the world. We all love eating food, and at the same time, we also want
to be slim and healthy, and be careful about what we eat. It has always
seemed that we can’t have it both ways, but this book is about how we
can have it all – eat delicious, tasty food and lose weight healthily.
....
My Personal Journey
Spices are in my DNA and this book is very much the story of my
personal food journey, learning about the remarkable health and
nutritional benefits of spices.
I was brought up eating Indian spices and good, wholesome homecooked
food. However, when I moved away from home, I moved away
from my ‘food roots’ too and was tempted by the growing proliferation
of fast food. Instant (no-cook, no-mess) food availability and the
addictive effect of high fat, high salt, sugars and colours. Result – I
soon began to feel and look tired and, horrifyingly, for someone who
had always been thin, began to put on weight. Even though I cut down
on calories and felt I was eating less… I was always hungry and still not
managing my weight well or feeling good.
Over the years I began to learn more about food and the effects of it on
our health, energy levels and, of course, our weight. I began to look
into the foods I was eating and wrote a diary of what triggered my
response to eating certain meals. I realised that I wanted to eat
healthily and feel full, to enjoy my food and to have a good relationship
with it, but I didn’t want to eat bland, flavourless and often insipidlooking
food or ‘diet’ foods. I wanted to eat food with lots of flavour, to
enjoy dishes from around the world, and I wanted to share foods with
my family. I discovered that when I balanced spices with healthy foods
my weight reduced and then stayed down.
So, Spice Yourself Slim is the story of the food journey I have travelled.
I have been fortunate to meet people from around the world through
my TV career, to go to fantastic places and explore foods from around
the world. Time and again I found that the food I loved in most
countries included scrumptious spices that were used to introduce
flavour but also gave the food health, well-being and nutritional benefits.

My journey takes me from my Indian roots to traditional British
cooking, to university where I was studying Russian and went to Soviet
Russia, and then travelling myself to experience cuisines first hand in
Iran, Vietnam and Italy, and to enjoying foods from Thailand, Morocco,
Mexico, the Mediterranean, the Far East and West Africa.
I use spices every day – I love the tastes, flavours and the good feeling
I get from just cooking a meal with them. A sprinkle of freshly roasted
and ground cumin makes a dull plate of vegetables sing. When I add
turmeric to a dish, I love the rich colour and I am instantly transported
to the bustling markets of Marrakesh where turmeric powder is piled
high in large sacks. Spices are sumptuous in colour, taste and history.
Their history evokes wonderful journeys across deserts, land and sea
from faraway exotic lands and worth so high a price as to have been
used as a legal tender in many countries.
Spice are eaten and enjoyed all over the world, and relished not only
because of their taste but because they also carry the stories of their
health powers from one generation to another. My mother, other
members of my family and many Indian people I know, still use
remedies made from spices for many ailments and for strength. For
instance, if anyone has a bad tummy, everyone rushes for the carom
seeds which are mixed with a sprinkling of salt and swallowed down
with a little warm water: an age-old remedy going as far back as my
great, great, grandmother.
Recently, I was in Vietnam and I was talking to some young people in a
restaurant. Their stories about using spices for ailments and for their
general health benefits were so similar to mine. Even in that country,
mothers use oil made from cloves for toothache – an ancient remedy
that has been used for centuries.
These are all family anecdotes, but now scientific research findings are
revealing the health properties of spices. For example, turmeric has
been used for years by Asian families and in Ayurvedic medicine as an
anti-inflammatory, but now research is showing that an active
compound in turmeric, curcumin, could potentially help in reducing
inflammation.
This project has been a secret passion of mine for years. I love the
alchemy of spices, which are often misunderstood by people, who are
overwhelmed by the number of spices required to make a meal.
Through my experience, I hope to demystify spices and show how they
can be easily incorporated into our daily eating habits, as well as to
explain their health benefits at a time when changing national tastes
mean that there has never been a greater public appetite to understand
and learn how to cook with them and to master their magic allure.

 2001, 2008 by Rosemary Gladstar A hardcover edition
 of this book was previously published
 under the title Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal.

Foreword by James A. Duke, Ph.D.
Rosemary, the herb of remembrance, and the memorable Rosemary Gladstar
have much in common. Both are stimulating, ethereal, and volatile, beautifully
enhancing any setting they chance to alight in. Inspirational, effervescent,
innervating . . . enlightening to both the mood and the intellect . . . challenging,
whether with aromatic vapors or ephemeral ideas . . . these characteristics are the
essence of R(r)osemary.

Photosynthesis, the manufacture of useful things from simple ingredients in
the presence of sunshine, blesses our planet with oxygen, green foods, and green
medicines; it embraces and purifies the soil, rescues the atmosphere from
pollutants, and provides communion and peace. Through photosynthesis, plants
draw on the sun’s power to prepare the chemicals necessary for life on earth.
Anyone who sees Rosemary Gladstar in her green gardens, caressed by spring,
summer, and autumn light, wonders whether she, too, might draw her unending
energy from the sun. It’s no wonder that she is the driving force behind the
herbalist movement. She may not have chlorophyll, but she certainly has green
charisma, green passion, green wisdom, and green spirit.

It is not only Rosemary’s enthusiastic and authoritative lectures, teachings,
and writings that I praise, but her unflagging dedication to green causes, such as
United Plant Savers, which vigorously promotes the salvation of endangered
medicinal plants in North America. Having brought so much to the herbalist
movement, Rosemary now brings us this great and useful book, Rosemary
Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. A delightful guide to a green
lifestyle, it will certainly help you and your loved ones live healthier, happier,
more joyful lives. As Rosemary writes, “Everyday radiant well-being, in mind,
body, and soul, is a function of everyday self-care. It’s a prescription for life. It’s
a part of what you do, what you take into your body, and what you feed your
mind. Radiant well-being is . . . finding your joy in life. Exploring your passions.
. . . Whatever you choose to do, do it well, and do it joyously.” The information,
advice, recipes, and stories that Rosemary — the gladdest of herbalism’s
superstars — provides in this treasury will help and inspire you and your family
to achieve radiant well-being and enjoy a well-lived life.
To your health! Think green!

Eco-Logical Herbalism
This book began, at the urging of my friends, as a project to collect my various
writings and teachings that span the past 30 years into one volume that could
serve as a practical home guide to herbal health care. I must admit, I was
reluctant at first to take on the project. I couldn’t imagine what I might possibly
add to the rich treasury of herbal medicine that hasn’t already been written —
and, in many cases, written quite well. But months later, as I finished up the
pages of what has turned out to be a rather hefty volume, I realized that the
teachings shared here have a vitally important purpose. They are not necessarily
new, astounding, or complex, but they serve as a firm reminder of the roots of
herbalism: Our heartfelt connection to the plants. I wanted to create a guide to
sustainable herbal medicine for the entire family. My hope is that this book will
be used and cherished, the pages dog-eared and the cover crackled with time,
and, just as important, that it will bring to the forefront of our consciousness the
idea that our health is integrally linked to that of the world around us. Then I will
know the book is truly worth not only my time — and yours — but also,
perhaps, the lives of the trees that were used to make it.

Introduction
There is a certain comfort one comes to feel when growing herbs. Just
knowing that our ancestors grew their own food and herbs links our gardening
endeavors to theirs. Ancient as well as modern-day gardeners trod
the same path, preparing the soil, selecting and sowing seeds, propagating
plants, and praying for sun and rain.
All gardeners have enjoyed the same benefits of growing their own
food. However, an added advantage when growing your own herbs is the
wonderful scent of lavender; the refreshing, cool aroma of mint; or the
delicate taste of chervil…to mention a few. No matter how large or small
your herb garden, foods simply taste better when prepared with fresh
herbs. Yes, many culinary herbs can now be found in the fresh produce
section of the supermarket. However, they pale in taste when compared
with a handful of freshly picked herbs from your very own garden. For that
reason, we want to share with you tips on growing herbs successfully in
a garden, or potted in containers on a patio, or even placed indoors on a
sunny windowsill.
Growing herbs can also be part of a green lifestyle. Stay green, get
green, learn green, be green! What is all this talk about green? Seriously,
isn’t it about time all of mankind started paying attention to what we
are doing to the environment as well as what we are putting into our
bodies? We certainly think so and have thought that way for a very long
time. The body has been very efficiently designed to absorb what is natural.
When you ingest food that has been artificially colored or flavored,
the body becomes disoriented. Blueberries are welcomed, but blueberryflavored
candy? Water is always welcomed into the body, but artificially
flavored water? What do you think the stomach would rather have? Without
becoming too authoritative, we ask you to think green when making
food choices.
Upon reading our book, should you decide to try your hand at gardening,
go as organic as possible. Follow our suggestions and stay green in
your choices. You’ll be glad and your body will be even happier.
In the following pages, we have chosen a number of our favorite culinary
herbs, designing recipes and even whole meals around them. We
have researched each herb to bring you history and lore, along with gardening
and culinary information. We hope you will find the lore and
cooking tips both enlightening and entertaining as you plan your garden
and cultivate new tastes for your kitchen menus. Please read the information
thoroughly before trying a recipe for the first time.
At the end of each chapter, we have left blank pages for you to
record both your garden and kitchen findings. Perhaps you would like
to try the same recipe, only using some different herbs, to create a new
taste. For whatever reason you choose to use them, the blank pages are
there for your convenience and your notes.
It is our sincere desire that you enjoy The Herb Garden Gourmet: Grow
Herbs, Eat Well, and Be Green. There is so much to learn about the world
of herbs! We thank you for inviting us into your cookbook collection
and we hope you will refer to our book often, as you enjoy this fresh and
healthy way to add flavor to your cooking.
—Tim and Jan

HERBAL PREPARATION BASICS
Versatility is such a highly prized quality these days. It’s a high
compliment to be called a versatile actor, artist, parent, or student.
Well, the herb world is no different.

Plants have been used for medicinal purposes for as long as
we’ve been walking the earth. It just makes sense that different
preparations will offer different results, and that how you prepare
your herbal remedy depends on the situation, the herb used, and
the body part effected. Here is a bit of what you’ll encounter on the following pages.

Introduction
Discover Herbs and Recover your Power
Herbal medicine, yoga, and natural health are buzzwords we’ve
heard over and over again in recent years. There are many reasons
for this, but I think the key reason, the superhero(ine) of reasons, is
that these modalities allow us to take charge of our own mental,
physical, and spiritual health.

That’s huge! We’ve been giving away our power for so long now
that we didn’t even know we’d lost it. Until now. I mean, look
around you. Nature gives us everything we need — food, water,
sun, raw materials for clothing and for building shelter — so why
not the materials we need for our own health? When we tune in
and tap into these natural resources, we become our own healers,
safely, knowledgeably, and, most of all, intuitively.
Herbalism is our cultural heritage. No matter where our
ancestors came from, chances are they used plants as medicine,
probably without even thinking about it. This knowledge was
instinctual, deep, and common. Sure, there were wisewomen
(herbwives, they were called) who would know exactly what to do in
dire situations, but most families had a stillroom (or home-grown
apothecary) in or near the family hearth.

Yes, we might have lost some of that knowledge along the way,
but the instincts are still there. It’s still in our genes or collective
subconscious. We reach for peppermint when we want to freshen
our breath or cool down, for instance; chamomile when we want to
relax; and tea when we want to wake up. Yup — black, green,
oolong, and rooibos teas are all herbs. In fact, you might be rather
surprised to see so many “non-traditional” herbs in this little volume.

Technically, an herb is any plant that produces seeds, has a nonwoody
stem, and dies down after flowering. But to an herbalist, any
plant that has medicinal, culinary, or aromatic mojo is considered
an herb. Trust me — every plant I’ve included is an herb by that
definition. There’s major mojo here.
I know that, taken as a whole, learning about herbs seems like a
lot of work. The sheer amount of information out there — on
websites, in books, and in periodicals — can be overwhelming. And
when you think of every possible medicinal plant out there? Ye
gads! It is a lot. It’s too much for most professional herbalists, even.
That’s why I’ve limited this book to 12 herbs.

You may be wondering, “How on earth can one herbalist decide
on just 12 herbs?” Well, that choice came down partially to
intuition; I’ve worked with many herbs over the years and these 12
continue to stand out to me as some of the most versatile and
easiest to work with and source. These are my favorite go-to herbs,
the ones that offer a range of solutions for healthy living from the
outside to the inside, from the mind to the body to the spirit. These
are the herbs my apothecary is never without. With these 12 herbs,
I feel confident that I can take care of (almost) anything that might
crop up in day-to-day living. Plus, there’s a good variety here —
some are beautiful, aromatic, and surprising (like the rose); some
are familiar and, perhaps, already in your pantry (like chamomile).
So that’s it: just 12. Easy. Fun. Intuitive.

Sure, there are scads more than 12 herbs out there (enough to
dedicate your life to their exploration, let’s put it that way). But I’ll
tell you a secret: Most herbalists are intimately familiar with a
handful of herbs (say, 30 or so) and we spend a long time getting to
know each herb that we work with. So here’s my suggestion: Try
focusing on one herb at a time, and spend an entire month getting
to know each one. It’s the best way to become really familiar with
how each herb affects you.

Think of the close relationships in your life. Think of the time it
takes to really get to know someone — how much care and
attention that kind of cultivation requires. You don’t take that time
with everyone you run into, but you know when it’s worth it. It’s
the same thing with herbs. They, too, will become more familiar
with time and attention. This is your moment of introduction. And
if you’re already acquainted, this is your time to go deeper. This is
late-night-chardonnay-drinking sisterhood time.

To that end, I’ve supplied you with not only lots of specific
recipes, but also some general formulas throughout the
appendixes. These master recipes will allow you to blend, create,
and invent your very own herbal preparations, from teas and
tinctures to salves and cosmetics; from herbal oils and vinegars to
flower essences. Here you’ll learn the ins and outs of herbal
crafting as you become inspired to build your own personalized
herbal apothecary. You’ll take your health into your own hands,
secure in the knowledge that you are intimately familiar with
every ingredient going into every remedy.

And speaking of your health and your hands — you’ll notice
yoga poses scattered throughout this book, each herb’s spirit
inspiring a yogic posture of its own. I included these because, to
me, yoga is as close to connecting to plant spirits as our bodies can
get. This isn’t a book about yoga, so I’m assuming some basic
familiarity with these poses; there are lots of reference guides out
there if you’d like to explore yoga more fully. Just flow with it; if it
inspires you, fantastic!
And on that note, feel free to read this book in any order. You’ll
find, I think, that this guide becomes a starting place for your
herbal exploration — that learning about these herbs will
springboard learning about other herbs, and your studies will
continue organically, with you creating the course and the
curriculum. I’m giving you the basics so that you can become your
own master teacher and Herbal Goddess down the road.
To my mind, you’re an Herbal Goddess when you find that
moment of inspiration, of inspired action that spurs you to
experiment in your own way and to do your own exploring. To be
an Herbal Goddess means to create your own craft of wellness,
your own traditions, your own heritage while tapping into those of
your sisters — both here-and-now and long gone. Because that
knowledge is never really lost, is it? We may have strayed from the
path of natural healing in recent decades, but herbs have a
mysterious aspect to them — an ancient energy and wisdom. Just
like any source of inspiration, this energy speaks to us.

Herbs have long been a part of spiritual and magical traditions,
and those traditions are intricately woven into their healing
properties and history. In honor of that sister-herbalist-goddess
lineage, you’ll find lots of magical applications for your herbs here as well.
Whether this is all new to you or provides a deeper exploration
of herbs that you’re already familiar with, you will find room to
play here. There are always new avenues to take, even when
heading for familiar homes.
At any rate, read at your leisure, have fun, and explore.
Be bold, be creative, and be healthy.
Oh, and be sure to goddess it up, you divine creatures, you!
