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!

Pinnock also provides a general overview of conditions and what foods can help heal them.

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.
