The Philosopher's Spoon, the first book by Gina De Roma, was inspired by the author's own transformative experience with gratitude and food.
Some years ago, Gina found herself thirty pounds overweight. Dieting wasn't working; in fact, with each attempt, she seemed to be slowly gaining more. In The Philosopher's Spoon: Food and the Transformative Power of Gratitude, she revealed how the practice of giving thanks every day transformed her relationship with food, her body and the world around her. Her second book, Cooking and Mysticism: Year One of The Philosopher's Spoon Blog, is a collection of essays and recipes from the inaugural year of her blog.
Gina, an ethical omnivore and certified yoga therapist, created the blog in 2010 as a resource for intellectually curious philosophers and foodies. Click on the links above to explore the blog, find out more about the author or inquire about her work as a yoga therapist.
