Have you noticed that as you moved from childhood through the teenage years and into adulthood your food tastes changed? How what used to work for you food–wise as a 30–something, no longer works for you as you near retirement? That you can’t eat the same dishes as your friend and feel good? That your energy levels are lacking or your digestion is just not the same?
Like the calendar year, the body has its seasons and no one understands this better than Martyna Angell, author of the bestselling book The Wholesome Cook and the popular and award–winning blog of the same name. In her new book The Wholesome Cook: Recipes for Life’s Seasons, Martyna focuses on bio–individualism – the recognition that we are all a little different – and offers 180 endlessly flexible recipes that can be adapted to support your individual health and well–being, no matter your age or stage of life.
All recipes emphasise seasonal wholefoods and the strong focus on fresh fruit and vegetables will inspire you to prepare them in new and exciting ways every meal time. All recipes are refined sugar–free and can easily be made gluten–free (perfect for coeliacs). Many cater to dairy–free, nut–free, egg–free, lactose–free, paleo, vegan and vegetarian diets. Every recipe is also tagged to show you the healthiest options for babies, children, teenagers, and men and women at various stages of life, so you know how to best nourish your body through the different seasons in life. These recipes offer delicious options that allow you to tune in to your body’s needs quickly and effortlessly, making this book perfect for singles, families and people of older age, too. Twenty of Martyna’s friends from the wellness world offer their favourite healthy recipes in this book as well.
Recipes for Life’s Seasons is not just a cookbook, it’s a guide to a creative approach to food and offers you the healthy balanced nourishment and real enjoyment that sharing delicious food brings.
