Since Amanda Chantal Bacon founded Moon Juice in 2011, it has evolved into one of the nation’s fastest growing wellness brands, and in The Moon Juice Cookbook, she artfully distills her powerful approach to healthy living, sharing over 75 recipes for the brand’s most popular healing beverages and provisions. Amanda’s recipes harness the healing properties of adaptogenic herbs, raw foods, and alkalizing ingredients to create potent drinks, snacks, and sweets that deliver a multitude of benefits, including sparked libido, glowing skin, and boosted immunity. She begins by guiding readers through the fundamentals of the Moon Juice kitchen, teaching them how to stock the larder with milks, juices, cultured foods, and “unbakery” doughs and crèmes—all of which can be mixed and matched to create nutritionally turbo-charged meals with minimal effort—and the essential time- and money-saving strategies they’ll need to make their new kitchen practices stick.

About the Author
Wellness entrepreneur, world-traveling chef and passionate food educator, Amanda Chantal Bacon began her journey toward health at a young age. Sick with chronic respiratory ills that proved unresponsive to antibiotics and other Western medicine, she credits her recovery to an Ayurvedic doctor who removed sugar, wheat and dairy from her diet and saved her life. After graduating high school in her native New York City, Bacon traveled across Europe, South America and New Zealand, working in restaurant kitchens and developing a love for the diverse cultures and flavors of each region.
Back in the U.S., Bacon studied at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, which raised her consciousness on the importance of sustainability, sourcing and collaborating with local producers. She continued her culinary journey, working in the kitchens of celebrated Los Angeles restaurants like Lucques and Canele, and serving as assistant food and wine editor for Los Angeles Times Magazine. The gestalt of her professional food experience, world travels and immersion in Eastern wellness finally led Bacon to become a wellness entrepreneur with her launch of Moon Juice in January 2012.
