More About the Author

Dale Pinnock is creating something of a stir in the UK media. He is regularly sought after for his indepth knowledge of the fields of nutrition, and phytonutrients, and his bold passion for showing what works, and what is just wishful thinking. He is recently getting a great deal of media attention due to his unique work in the area of prescriptive "medicinal cookery" based upon tailoring menu's to meet individuals specific health needs.

After completing his undergraduate studies, Dale is now pursuing his post graduate career, undertaking a Masters Degree qualification, in Nutritional Medicine at the University of Surrey - one of the most highly respected, evidence based Nutrition post graduate courses available. Whilst studying he also worked as a wholefoods chef. This combined experience has led to him working in the way that he does. He wears many hats at once, and delivers the full spectrum of his expertise, in order to guide the public towards a healthier life, and more informed choices.

Dale has no belief in the idea of 'alternatives' to conventional treatment at all. His approach is in no way meant to be a replacement for the treatment that individuals would get from their doctor, and he works directly with many GP's, specialists, and academics in the healthcare field. We now know enough about food and nutrition, and its effects upon the body in both health and disease, to know that it can be a very valid tool in the healthcare picture, and in the prevention of disease. Dale's work aims to give individuals tools and information that they can easily and safely implement into their daily regime, no matter what type of treatment they are undergoing. The food we eat is one part of the healthcare picture, and thankfully one that we have ultimate control over.

Dale is very much of the belief that diet and lifestyle offers some fantastic opportunities for individuals to take elements of their own healthcare into their own hands. At the same time, he is acutely aware that there is a lot of quackery and fairytales in this field. It is his mission to be vocal and passionate about what works, and why, and to weed out that which is nothing more than science fiction, to give you, the people who need this information the most, the real picture.

Format: Hardcover
Every recipe in this book is extremely simple to make, probably more so than any other cook book I've come across. No intricate techniques are needed. The book uses nine symbols (Skin, Joints & bones, Respiratory system, Immune system, Metabolic system, Mental health & nervous system, Heart & circulation, Digestive system, Reproductive & urinary systems) to categorize the recipes. The symbols are printed in the top left of each recipe, and a full list for each is contained in the back of the book. Each chapter and recipe contains a good explanation, while there is also a star ingredient or clever combination at the bottom of each recipe which details the science behind using certain ingredients. A more detailed description of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fat, fatty acids and phytonutrients is at the end of the book.

Perhaps the book could have added nutritional information (calories, fat, sugar/carbohydrates, protein and so on) for each recipe given it is a healthy recipe book, and not all recipes have accompanying photographs, but I don't think this detracts from the overall effectiveness of the book, which is very good.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough, it will change your life. Since eating the Pinnock Way, I feel better and friends have noticed my skin and hair looking, as they say, amazing.

If you think healthy eating is boring and tasteless, then this is the proof that it is not.

Dale Pinnock's books never leave the kitchen, I use them to write my shopping list and plan my menu every week.

I am vegetarian and although this book is not just for veggies, there are many recipes for us and loads that can be adapted.
I have cooked some of the non veggie recipes for friends and they have loved them.

The details on each recipe telling you what the health benefits are is brilliant and the product detail is priceless when planning other meals that you wish to have an added benefit.

I have lost weight since using his recipes too, because these recipes fill me up and I am not picking between meals as I feel satisfied. It's all about eating a balanced healthy diet, so look at Mr P's book as being a great way to lay the foundations of a healthy you.

Format: Hardcover
I really liked his last book The Medicinal Chef: Eat Your Way to Better Health. And in this book he has kept the same format of listing what each recipe is good for and giving great info on star ingredients and why they are so good. Again, it is well laid out and easy to use and contains some delicious recipes.

The recipes in this book are quick and easy to make. The book is broken down into the following chapters:
Intro
Recipes:
Start the day
Grab 'n' go
Lunchbox
Grazing
Feed me fast
Lazy weekends
Healthy indulgence
Winding down

The Food Pharmacy:
Vitamins
Minerals & trace elements
Fats & fatty acids
Phytonutrients

Recipe list by body system.

I would gladly recommend this book to anyone especially if you liked his last book. If you don't have it get it because I cannot recommend this chef highly enough. Not only is he a great chef but a nutritionist who knows what he is talking about, not just repeating the usual fad rubbish. .

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my second Dale Pinnock book and I am delighted by it. As someone who is making the transition from dieting to healthy eating I have found the recipies simple, inspiring and delicious. Dale categorises each section of the book in rgards to the benefits of the recipie such as Skin, Metabolic system, Nervous system and Digestive to name a few. So if you are looking to target your cholestertol you can locate a recipie and ingedients that may help you.

The recipies them selves are sectioned into -

1. Start the Day
2. Grab n Go
3. Lunchbox
4. Grazing
5. Feed me fast
6. Lazy Weekends
7. Healthy Indulgence
8. winding Down.

The recipies cover main meals as well as desserts, snacks, smoothies and juices, a few examples are

1. Beetroot and SMoked Mackerel Frittata.
2. Swamp Donkey Smoothie
3. Chocolate and Nut Oat Bars
4. Stabalizing Salmon and Quinoa Salad
5. Chicken and Grapefruit Powerhouse Salad
6. Lycopene-boosting Tomato and White Bean Soup
7. Magic Mushroom Soup
8. Blooming Bean Burgers with Red Cabbage and Apple Slaw
9. coconut Panna Cotta.

I've made a few of the recipies already and was really impressed with them. Not only are they simple 'clean' and healthy recipies, I was really impressed with the taste result as well.

I haven't given this book 5 starts as he uses 'ready made' apple juice and the like - and being a great juicing fan, I know that making your own fresh juice is far better for you and contains far more health benifits than bought juice. I found this book a really good transition between a regular cook book and a far more 'hard core' helthy eating cook book such as Honestly Healthy.
