Treat your tastebuds with Patrick Holford’s latest cookbook
Delicious, Healthy, Sugar-Free celebrates health with simple, delicious and exciting recipes that don’t compromise on taste despite being sugar-free.
“There’s absolutely no reason why healthy food has to be tasteless and dull. After all, the basis of good nutrition is simple, fresh, high-quality ingredients, which provide maximum flavour as well as the best nutrients,” says Holford.
“We believe eating should be an actively pleasurable experience that positively promotes health at the same time,” he adds.
According to Holford, the key to maintaining health is balancing blood sugar. As such, the focus of Delicious, Healthy, Sugar-Free is on avoiding sugar. But that doesn’t mean this is a tough or boring dietary regimen that forces you to restrict yourself or cut out your favourite foods; rather, it gives you an understanding of the fundamentals of nutrition to help you make the right food choices.
There’s also an entire section dedicated to nutritious and tasty recipes for budding vegetarians, an overview of the best cooking methods as well as an entire chapter showcasing a variety of flavours and cooking styles from all over the world to help you spice up your meals.
With everything from curries to healthy roasts and gluten-free chocolate brownies, made from easy-to-obtain ingredients, good food is firmly on the menu. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to feel and look healthier and boost their energy levels, without disappointing their taste buds.
