Food Yoga presents simple choices to improve your lifestyle. The deeper you dive into the knowledge of this book the higher will be your understanding of values in life. Hearing Paul Turner talk on the subject is a bigger threat to make you happier, healthier, and satisfied in life. A must-read to make the world a better place to live in.

“Good source of knowledge about the body. As a monk, the speaker is uniquely qualified to speak on the spiritual and energetic aspects of food. Here you’ll find a wealth of thought-provoking words of inspiration, a clever blend of wisdom, and an extraordinary guide to eating and living with a conscience. “

This book written by the Food Yogi is informative, enlivening, and chock full of valuable information. The well-researched history of vitamins, medical treatments, as well as animal abuse is quite amazing. A lot of work has gone into presenting the truth about food to the world. In addition, the spiritual aspects of food gathering and preparation are presented in a non-judgemental fashion, inspiring the reader to approach nutritious foods with a mood of gratitude and appreciation. This will inspire abundance as well as spiritual growth, a much-needed asset in today’s world. I highly recommend this book to every one, since everyone must eat in order to live. And this book teaches a healthier approach to something we all must do.

Thank you so much for the Food Yoga demonstration on Sunday at Witchie Woo – Bribie Island Queensland. It was a magical day and the food that you made with only a blender was amazing. It really makes you think about what you do put into your body and how we live in a world where we are conditioned as per our childhoods as to what and how food is cooked and eaten. The Sunflower Seed Pate was delicious and the Smoothies whether many types of blends were incredible in their taste and the Cheesecake was awesome. Thank you again for your inspiration to make one really think about what we do to our bodies and also give the confidence to change one’s own habits.


I am on my third reading of your delightful book Food Yoga. What a remarkable journey that you’ve shared with us all. Everything about the book is uplifting and unifying. How fortunate the world is to have this laid out like this. As you may know in all of our classes and chef training the crux of all that we share is how to offer our food based on knowledge not just beliefs, You’ve done a marvelous job in giving the world the tools to do just that KNOWLEDGE! You’ve have covered every area needed to give any lay person insight and knowledge about the science of food and the science of Yoga. Blessings many times over for your continued endeavors to serve humanity to the utmost. Hari Bol

I just want to say thank you, now that I really know what I got. 🙂 Your book is incredibly inspiring. I spent 2 days at the seaside and read it front to back in one breath. 🙂 It touches so many topics, and at this moment in life, the “water” chapter (and many others) resonated with me…I don’t consider myself a great cook, but I’ll appreciate eating now quite a bit more:) and I just wanted to add, I’m having my first raw month (9th day), being vegetarian 16.5 years, vegan 1.5, this opens totally new dimensions. YOUR BOOK CAME TO MY HANDS AT JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT as everything always does :)))

This is the kind of book you want anyone you love or care about to read and benefit from. Beautifully written from the heart with such truth and wisdom. The knowledge I enjoy teaching my son and one day he can teach his kids – like a gift that keeps on giving. Ancient wisdom is presented in a practical way that anyone can take something from this book and will feel a sense of empowerment and motivation that you can live a healthy more fulfilled life. The recipes are fantastic for kids especially if you have fussy eaters like I do. Brilliant!

I didn’t know much about your background and am impressed by it. What a long time to be a monk! There was quite a lot I’d not heard before in the book, especially about the Torus shape… I’d heard that some Hindus and Krishnas don’t eat garlic/onions, and am glad to now know why. Really appreciated the line about how easy it is to find fault, but how little we gain by doing so. If only more animal advocates took that to heart.

The book is fantastic! I cannot believe how much you packed into that number of pages….everything from your personal story to various spiritual paths to USDA organics myth to Monsanto and more…I think this book will be a hit.

FOOD YOGA is an eye-opener and very educational for the public in general. It is well researched and provides the reader with a lot of insights into the art of healthy eating. I recommend this book for everyone to read and I congratulate Priya Vrata (Paul Rodney Turner).

Paul’s Food Yoga Workshop is an enrapturing concoction of culinary, scientific and spiritual wisdom topped with some of the best raw food I’ve ever eaten.

An inspiring and refreshing read for all health-conscious people. Awakens compassion, gratitude, and spirituality.

Food Yoga is one of the most interesting and beneficial books I have ever read. Full of fascinating facts, such as the Sacred Geometry of Whole foods, the story of an Indian man who survives on Sun Gazing alone, Laughter Yoga, etc. It has helped me and my family tremendously in daily lifestyle habits, being selective with the food and water we consume, incorporating as much fresh & locally grown fruit and vegetables, and eliminating unbeneficial ingredients from our diet. “Food Yoga” is a unique book, because it does not only concentrate on what to consume for optimal health but makes that important realization that food has the power to change our thoughts, feelings, and our hearts. Above all food is a gift, and as such, we should always respect it and give thanks and offerings to the Creator.

I just finished reading your book! I loved, loved, loved it. Also, this is the first time that I actually read a book on the computer and since I have a nice comfy laptop it was great. I was even able to highlight passages and quotes that I plan to integrate into a presentation that I am doing next month for a Unitarian Universalist congregation. Anyway, back to your book. First of all, I think that you are a great writer. You write in a clear manner. I did not get lost or drift away at any time. I don’t have a lot of experience reading books on this subject (perhaps because the number of such books are limited?) but one book that I did “try” to read well, the fact that I even use the word “try”…I tried but couldn’t get through it. I picked up a lot in your book that I will integrate into my own life.

Maribeth Abrams

Incredible! I’ve been taking it with me everywhere. I’m in the middle of many exams and assignments at the moment but its also helping with that which is very convienient! It’s really motivated me be offering all things to the divine spirit first now, instead of just when i think to do it.

Whether the holiday is Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Hanukah, Janmastami, or Diwali, you can be sure that there is plenty of feasting and lots of joy in the air. Indeed, none of these public holidays or religious festivals would be complete without the sharing of sumptuous food. Unfortunately, these festive holidays are often celebrated at the expense of innocent animals’ lives.
