Overview


Food is more than just fuel; it's key in helping us live longer, healthier lives. Looking carefully at the science of nutrition, Dale Pinnock uses his culinary skills to create practical, delicious dishes that are a pleasure to eat but also alleviate a variety of ailments and illnesses. From antioxidant-rich blueberries that aid the heart and circulation to shiitake mushrooms to boost the immune system, these ingredients target the skin; joints; respiratory, digestive, metabolic, and nervous systems; and even fatigue and hangovers! The recipes include Herbed Mediterranean Frittata, Thai Fish Soup, a Roasted Vegetable and Guacamole Open Sandwich, Wholemeal Bean Quesadillas, and-because everyone deserves a sweet treat-Mint Chocolate No-Cheese Cake!

Just bought this book today and have not actually cooked from it yet, but reading through it there are so many things that are whetting my appetite. I am also loving how many recipes are just for one or two people, or for 4 with an easy save for another meal. Excited to try many of these recipes.
