This book has been written with one thing in mind: to make us think differently about the food we buy and eat. New diets appear all the time with promises for drastic weight loss and better health while the supermarket shelves are full of products that have bits put in, bits taken out, 'healthy' ranges, low-fat alternatives and fortified foods - not to mention exotic new 'health' ingredients (goji berry, anyone?). The fact is that eating good nutritious food doesn't have to be this complicated. This book is a straight-talking take on the best way to buy, prepare and cook the best ingredients - and it really is easy. Each of the 100 foods covers all the information you need, including what it is, health benefits, the best way to buy, cook and store it and a simple recipe or serving suggestion. Organized into eight chapters that reflect the way we eat (Breakfast, On-the-go, Lunch, Store cupboard, Fine dining, Lazy cooking, Tipples, Desserts & treats) the book is fantastically easy to use and includes photographs of recipes as well as ingredients. Packed full of recipes, information and guidance, this is a book for anyone who wants to take a simpler approach to health and good food.
