A guide to eating and drinking well
Food can be good, and it can be awful. It can make you feel fantastic and full of vitality, or downright sick. It can be an intensely pleasurable or utterly miserable affair. The best food – and drink – should create a divinely pleasurable experience that also makes you feel great and promotes your good health. It’s not too much to ask.
This book guides you towards the food and drink that fit that criteria. It is a practical guide to what’s best to have for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks. It is packed full of facts on what (and what not) to eat and drink, and why. It will tell you what the food and drink you choose can do for you, and to you. Each chapter covers the most common conundrums faced by the discerning consumer, such as:
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The in-depth information you’ll find in this book is evidence-based and fully referenced. I have sifted through the marketing and myth to bring you the most robust scientific research into the effects of food and drink on your health and your risk of avoiding – or developing – chronic disease.
Food, and How to Make a Healthy Meal of it is also a celebration of real food and an antidote to so many pointless dietary regimes of joyless abstinence. Enjoy.
