The new way of cooking deals with the typical issues related to brain trauma: problems with concentration, sequencing, and with determining that dishes go together
NEW YORK (PRWEB) September 13, 2019
People who have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are no longer able to cook, even if they were proficient cooks before the trauma. That is what happened to the Susana Stoica, author of a new five-part cookbook series "Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery", a companion book to “Heal Your Brain, Reclaim Your Life: How to Recover and Thrive After a Concussion.”
Susana had two TBIs on the same day and ended up not being able to make sense of cooking. With determination and patience, over a span of ten years, Susana was able to find a way to cook again and documented her new approach to cooking so she can share it with others fighting to recover from the impairments of brain trauma.
The new way of cooking deals with the typical issues related to brain trauma: problems with concentration, sequencing, and with determining that dishes go together. The books in the series contain increasingly complex recipes.
Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery: Book 1 contains the simplest possible recipes, requiring a minimum of cooking. The recipes are thus suitable for people with limited attention span and difficulties following a step-by-step process. The recipes are healthy, suitable for vegetarian, vegan, Keto, and other diets. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W4S2FWZ/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i3
Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery: Book 2 contains somewhat more difficult dishes, so the person with brain trauma can go one step further in improving his/her cognitive abilities, introducing the use of the oven. Like in the first book, the recipes are easy to follow and healthy. Some of the dishes can be used both as sides and, if desired, as vegetarian dishes.
Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery: Book 3 goes one step further in complexity, introducing pie making, and more complex meals.
This fourth book in the series contains more advanced recipes than the previous three books. These should be attempted only after one is comfortable cooking the previous ones. As the intent of the series is to gradually enable the person to use the normal cooking approach, the shopping lists are only part of the book, instead of also being listed on a web site.
Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery: Book 4 contains dishes that are even more difficult to cook and should be attempted only after one is comfortable cooking the dishes in the first three books. While the previous books have mainly vegetarian dishes, book 3 contains a lot of meat dishes (meatloaf, meatballs, paprikash, etc.).
Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery: Book 5, the last book in the therapeutic cookbook series written by Susana Stoica, Ph.D., has the most complicated recipes but it still follows the same approach that enables those with brain trauma to cook, and by doing so, recover their cognitive abilities. The recipes are healthy and compatible with special diets. Following the series, one should be able by the end of this book to be quite a proficient cook, and most probably be able to sequence, remember things, and even cook multiple simple dishes on the same day.
