About the author:
Juliana Castaneda Turner as born in Colombia. At age 5, Juliana adopted a vegetarian diet and at age 9 was already cooking meals for the family under the guidance of her mother. She visited and lived in many Bhakti yoga temples in South and Central America as a young girl, and was fascinated by the idea of cooking with devotion and purifying her meals with mantras.
At age 23, Juliana return to Colombia and with the help of her long-time friend Ekala Isvara, she founded the first and only vegan animal sanctuary in the Andes Mountains, in which 50 rescued animals are cared for, including a cow and an ox, making it the only animal shelter in Colombia that protects cows.
Along with giving public talks in South America on animal protection, Juliana continues to develop her culinary skills as she visits different countries and is currently a student Australian born, Paul Rodney Turner, the "Food Yogi."
Juliana has held regular gourmet vegan cooking courses in Colombia for the last 6 years and through her teaching, she also tries to instill in her students the importance of food in one's spiritual development.
Juliana is now a certified animal reiki and aromatherapy healer and has been a student and practitioner of bhakti yoga for more than 28 years. She is currently the coordinator for FFL in South America and assistant to the director of Food For Life Global, the world's largest vegan food relief.
Cooking with Jaggy
Pure Food Artistry in the Kitchen
Food is fundamental to our life; it unites and has the power to build relationships, but to do this really effectively, the food must be pure and as natural as possible. Therefore, the golden rule in Juliana's cooking is: do everything with love.
Food should never come from the suffering and pain of others and that is why a long time ago Juliana chose to eat a plant-based diet.
This book is Juliana's gifts of love to the world. It is an invitation to expand our love by starting to love ourself and then expanding this wonderful energy to all our food preparations, so that you can take everybody you feed to a place of peace, respect and fulfilment.
Juliana's hope is that the small steps you'll take in using this cookbook will help the people around you return to their core truth - that we are all equal, regardless of the external form we are occupying, and that what makes us most happy is when we learn to serve others with love.
Her first cookbook is a labour of love and 100% of the profits from sales support her animal sanctuary.
