What Is It All About?
So, let’s start as we mean to go on, and keep it real: if we’re going to stay on top of life, maintain emotional balance, keep mentally sharp, and bounce with energy, we need to feed our bodies (and brains!) the right fuel. Not just any fuel; not empty calories, or food depleted of nutrients, or processed frankenfoods more toxic than tasty. We must feed ourselves the fuel we actually need.
Functional food is not just about the recipes and ingredients, it’s also about the impact they have on our health. The book will pass on all the advice and information you need to nourish those systems that have their own requirements, but which are also part of a holistic whole. Systems like our hormones, gut, brain, adrenals, and more, plus how these when out of balance affect our weight, our mood, our skin, our energy, and more.
So, how does that work in real, frantic, everyday life? It can, and it does, believe me! It’s what I’ve spent nearly 25 years showing people, via client work, books, courses, resources, recipe hub, media columns, work with organisations and charities, and on my social media pages. Putting it all into one book that is as visually delicious as the health and food content is an ambition I’ve had for most of those 25 years!
