Book Description

16 Jan 2014

The new book from the bestselling Medicinal Chef, Dale Pinnock, provides 80 new recipes to eat healthily day-in day-out.

Dale acknowledges that breakfast is, for many people, the first hurdle in a healthy diet as time pressures force us to make unhealthy choices. Here Dale provides ideas from eggs royale, chilli chocamocha breakfast bomb, to an indulgent brunch of beetroot and smoked mackerel frittata. Throughout the day, snack on choc & nut oat bars or sesame chocolate fudge. Lunchbox ideas include Roast root and rocket salad with honey mustard dressing, Cheeky chicken & lettuce roll-ups and Miso mushroom noodle soup. The need to get food on the table quickly in the evening is answered with family-friendly dishes such as pad thai, green curry salmon burgers, cholesterol-busting chicken curry or one-pot Moroccan vegetable tagine.

This new book also includes several healthy meat-based recipes such as a Chicken & pink grapefruit powerhouse salad or a healthy kebab to lure you away from the takeaway.

Short explanations alongside every recipe highlight the incredible nutritional benefits of a wide range of ingredients we all know and love, and easy-to-use symbols show which bodily systems and conditions each recipe can help with.

A special index lists recipes by the area of health they aid, including:

  • Skin
  • Joints and Bones
  • Respiratory system
  • Immune system
  • Metabolic system
  • Heart and circulation
  • Digestive system
  • Reproductive & urinary systems

Dale feels passionately that making a long-term change to the way you eat is a far better path to good health than short-lived, difficult-to-follow diets. Simple, tasty, good for you — now it's never been easier to be healthy every day.

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Book 24 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had ordered this book and The Medicinal Chef. This arrived first and is fabulous!
I have a lot of diet cookery books but this one is fascinating with the nutritional information that I did not know.
I cooked Moroccan Vegetable Tagine and really enjoyed it.
Also, I made apple crisps wonderful as a snack, and Chocolate Sesame Fudge.
I will be working my way through the recipes and can't wait for the other book to arrive!
Dale's sense of humour and enthusiasm shines through this book and I believe he knows his stuff
and wants to share this in a practical way.
Ingredients are mostly easily available and I had most of them in my cupboards and fridge.
I will be using this as my go to cook book and feel very strongly that this information would be
invaluable in the school curriculum for youngsters on healthy eating!

I feel compelled to write a review because it's rare that books like this are actually any good. I don't even own the book but I read through almost all of it in a coffee break as it was for sale by the Book People.

This chap clearly knows his stuff nutritionally; in an easy-to-read glossary and information section at the back he talks about different fats, talking not just about omega 3 but EPA and DHA! But in a very concise, accessible and friendly way. This really impressed me, as did his clear understanding that although fat is relatively high in calories, it is not to always be avoided and there are some very healthy fats out there. Makes a refreshing change from the usual rubbish advising a low-fat diet. He is also one of the few mainstream chefs/authors who recognises the need to limit inflammatory omega 6 fats. He doesn't put anxiety-inducing calorie values on his recipes (or any "nutritional information" actually, beyond the beneficial nutrients present) which is brilliant - if people eat the right food there is little reason to because neurotic about quantities.

He has recipes that specifically contribute to healthy gut flora, and are almost all lower in carbohydrates and/or low GI. The food is attractive, fresh, simple and natural, with quite a hands-off approach - very little in the way of lengthy preparation (which often reduces the nutritional value) and allows ingredients to speak for themselves. Nevertheless, some of his flavour combinations are quite novel/interesting; I count myself a fairly experienced home cook but I certainly picked up a few ideas leafing through.

For those who read a lot about nutritional health, I think it's fair to say that Dale is fairly close to a "paleo" style position on healthy eating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book 17 Jan 2014
By Terri
I can't recommend this new book highly enough. I really like Dale's approach to healthy eating and his recipes are delicious. The bonus is that they are easy to make as well. So far I've only tried two recipes from this new book but I am looking forward to working my way through the rest. If you already have any of the earlier books you won't be disappointed with this one and if you have not come across the medicinal chef before (really?) you are in for a treat.

The Medicinal Chef Healthy Every Day

I have already have the Medicinal Chef and love it... use it all the time. The Medicinal Chef Healthy Every Day arrived today. I have been reading it all morning and have to say (and this is the first review I have ever been compelled to write) that it looks absolutely fantastic! Superb presentation... lovely pictures, clear instructions and lots of information about nutrition.... make you want to try every recipe immediately. The only problem is trying to decide which recipe to make first.

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.
