What happened to just eating real, whole food? Like her best-selling books Supergrains and Superlegumes, Chrissy Freer's new book Real Delicious highlights the importance and nutritional benefits of eating whole foods. Not limited to grains, Real Delicious also encompasses legumes, dairy, meat & fish, nuts & seeds and good oils to put you on the path to a healthier and happier you.
You only need to look at the increasing incidence of food intolerances, allergies and digestive disorders to see that what we are doing to our food, is not agreeing with us. Likewise, the idea that reduced fat or diet food is healthier for us, is gradually being thrown out as simply not true. Reduced fat foods are often highly processed, with additional sugars, thickeners and stabilisers added to replace the fat. By eating foods in their most natural state, Chrissy shows how avoiding highly processed, reduced fat, fat free and artificially sweetened foods will have a positive impact on your health.
With over 100 recipes, Real Delicious shows that eating healthily doesn't have to sacrifice flavour. Fuel your morning with Oat and Ricotta pancakes, snack on Carob, Peanut Butter and Banana Oat Bars, stop for an easy lunch of Baked Sweet Potatoes stuffed with Spinach, Feta and Pepitas, rustle up a Prawn, Quinoa and Vegetable stir fry for dinner, and indulge in Hazelnut and Raspberry Cake for dessert.
