Book Description

19 Jun 2014

The Art of Eating Well is a revolutionary cookbook that will help anyone who wishes to feel better, lose weight or have more energy. London-based sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley teach their principles of life-long healthy eating with exciting and inventive recipes that are so delicious you forget the purpose is good health and nourishment.

Jasmine and Melissa’s philosophy is simple: a healthy gut leads to a healthy body and mind, and a better, happier you; that changing the way you eat doesn’t have to involve deprivation, but can be enjoyed everyday - whether you are home, work, with family or friends, or eating out.

This stunning book includes over 150 mouth-watering recipes - all of which are free from grain, gluten, refined sugar, high starch and are alkaline friendly.

The sisters’ down-to-earth, encouraging and practical guidance will motivate you to try new foods and no longer crave high sugar and processed foods. They include comprehensive advice on ingredients, techniques, equipment, cooking in advance, meal plans, juicing, and packed lunches and snacks that fit busy lifestyles.

The Art of Eating Well is divided into clear categories – Kitchen and Store Cupboard Basics; Cooking in Advance; Breakfast; Soups; Salads; Sides and Snacks; Main Meals, including meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian; Baking and Desserts; Dips, Dressings and Sauces; Juices and Smoothies; Basics.

Beautifully photographed and designed, The Art of Eating Well is a kitchen bible that delivers maximum taste and maximum nutrition. A bold and beautiful cooking companion for food lovers that will change the way you eat leaving you energized, healthy, slimmer and strong.

This is a first review for me, but after several conversations with friends and family asking me about this book I kept mentioning I thought I would share my experiences on Amazon

My wife and I had previously read some articles on the sisters and subsequently had seen them on Saturday Kitchen, we were at the time looking for a way of changing our habits and diet and this seemed to fit what we were looking for. Having young children we were also aware, particularly when attending several parties a month, that sugar and processed food is pretty much the standard and only options available. Yes, we do still let them eat some party food on occasion.

Substituting ingredients has not been overly challenging, certainly less than we initially thought e.g we would normally eat cous cous or rice, so changing this to Quinoa is not a great stretch and taste wise is for us (as non food specialists) really no different.

My wife now bakes with coconut flour and ground almonds which we found online easily enough but since the kids get more than enough opportunities to eat the sweet stuff we've been concentrating on more the savoury stuff like broccoli fritters (which they like with the addition of ketchup still - halfway there!) and eating more stews. The stews took a bit of coaxing with the kids, but we are pleased they are into them as they don't seem to mind eating vegetables as much in this format. Added benefit with the stews, is making use of our slow cooker more and the fact we can normally get a couple of meals out of them, which saves us time and money. So with eating in the week we tend to cook every other day now and just eat the same meal twice in a row which is actually refreshing and means a night off from planning mealtimes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiralizer fun and I'm feeling good! 29 Sep 2014
This book was an unexpected gift and I am so pleased. I've just had a weekend of pretty much sticking to recipes from it, and I must say I feel better - less 'bloaty' and more energised. It's a pretty book - lovely photography.

The Courgetti is a brilliant idea, especially for those of us who planted far too many courgette plants this year! I did splash out (25 quid) on a spiralizer - great fun machine and good for all sorts of veg. I made crisps with mine, too, which kind of negates the healthy aspect, but, hey, they were homegrown potatoes and they were delish ;)

Basically, I just like the healthy options, the reduction of sugar and grains. So what if you have to soak a few beans - it's no great hardship and if you forget, you can always eat something different from the book - (courgetti takes about 5 mins from garden to plate!) until they've been soaked long enough.

The carrot and flax (linseed) crackers are brilliant with hummus and dead easy. The BB brownies (mine are AB brownies - had to use aduki beans - no black beans in these parts) were not that popular with the confirmed sugar addicts in my house and gave them dodgy tums (they did eat them anyway!) - but I didn't soak the beans in enough water first. Better 2nd time around.

I make bone broth anyway, so nothing new there, though I didn't really realise the health benefits - just wanted to stretch the budget and get soup out of a carcass!

As they say, dipping in and gradually changing is fine, which is what I intend to do. All in all a great book.

By Hugh
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ok, so I don't write reviews. But the effusive, exclamatory and multiple-asterisked reviews kinda annoyed me.

Firstly, there's a definite philosophy which is sound; and from which I am totally sure that people (including myself) would benefit. So I'm not in any way questioning the intro (yes - I've read it) or the ingredient lists regarding their health benefits (yes - I have read, cooked and eaten the recipes... unlike many of the other reviews).

However, if you were to attempt to adopt overnight the advice and recipes in this book, you would be an impoverished and depressing soul long, long, loooong before you became the promised creature sizzling with energy, rising with the sun and tip toeing gracefully to your chlorine-filtered shower (with pre-shower skin brushing) .

I am a keen cook, and would argue that the many review comments saying this is perfect for the novice are .... well, .... er, ..... wrong. (No offence). Novices don't boil bones for 12 to 24 hours. And they don't have a store cupboard with sumac, stevia, amaranth, tamari, seaweed, cacao nibs, butter and powder, etc etc etc. And they don't go trying to source these things – not an easy or inexpensive job. I only had one of the examples I’ve picked out there - the sumac. (And I don’t even have a chlorine filter on my shower. Bad home cook, bad.)

As for the recipes, I picked the ones which combined ingredients I liked, but which I personally would not have paired. While I won't go so far as to those favourite ingredients are now dead to me, it was a close call a few times. I think I might need to adapt the recipes in the future while staying true to the philosophy (e.g. garlic and almond won't be going together again anytime soon). Having said that, who the hell am I to say that?
