This book is brilliant. I tend to exaggerate so as much as I want to say ‘this changed my life’, it hasn’t - but it’s made me feel healthy, happy and like I can persevere with my diet in a nutritious and enjoyable way. I am not brilliant at finding healthy alternatives to everyday meals, so I tended to eat simple but probably not nutritious meals because I was feeling guilty if I added anything I deemed as ‘unhealthy’. But what I was really after were simple ideas and recipes that are healthy, nutritious and simple to make - and this book gives me just that. Of course, taken with a pinch of salt because not everything is super healthy, but it gave me exactly what I was after. I struggled with things like simple lunches that didn’t involved bread, and snacks or treats for the evening that wasn’t boring dark chocolate. Again, the salad pots and hazelnut balls have been massive game changers! To summarise, I found this book brilliant. It’s got ideas for workout drinks after the gym, protein snacks for an energy boost, as well as healthy vegetarian options when not feeling like meat, and simple treats which don’t make me feel guilty. I’ve had this
Book for about 8 days now and I’ve made something new everyday from each section and cannot believe how simple and tasty a few deliberate ingredients can be. I’m so happy and feeling brilliant!
