Healthy eating is within everyone’s reach in this simple guide to buying, preparing, and cooking one hundred delicious and nutritious foods.
Packed full of recipes, information, and guidance, 100 Foods You Should be Eating is a book for anyone who wants to take a simpler approach to health and good food. It has been written with one thing in mind: to make us think differently about the food we buy and eat.
Award-winning author of The Health Delusion, Glen Matten, gives us a straight-talking take on the best way to buy, prepare, and cook the best ingredients—and it really is easy. The details of each of the one hundred foods cover 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.
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. The fact is that eating good nutritious food doesn’t have to be this complicated.
Organized into eight chapters that reflect the way we eat (Breakfast, The Munchies, Lunch on the Go, Strapped for Cash, Summer Living, Friends Round, Fast Food, Lazy Sundays, Kids, and Desserts and Drinks) the book is extremely easy to use and includes photographs of recipes as well as ingredients.
“If you think that healthy eating is all about eating “rabbit food,” foods that are expensive and foods that are difficult and time-consuming to prepare, then this book will turn everything you think you know about healthy living on its head…. Glen proves that healthy food doesn’t mean food that is tasteless, dull and bland.”—Norwich Evening News
