Celebrated nutritionists and food consultants Hemsley & Hemsley are starting a food revolution in their native U.K. With their first cookbook, The Art of Eating Well, they have compiled their recipes, knowledge, and advice on how to make the switch to a delicious, healthy, and satisfying diet, and bringing it stateside. The Art of Eating Well is a cookbook with exciting and inventive recipes that are so delicious you forget that the premise is health and nourishment. These recipes will not only reset your approach to food in the most enjoyable way, but will help you realize how satisfied and great you can look and feel. They will empower you to take control of what you put into your mouth.
Over the years Hemsley & Hemsley have created—through personal experience, research, and much trial and error—an ethos and style of eating that just makes sense. "Diets" are often not sustainable. The Art of Eating Well takes readers on a journey, educating them and helping them reclaim the word diet as a noun (the kind of foods that a person habitually eats) rather than a verb (to restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight). Hemsley & Hemsley show you how and why cooking and eating organic or equivalent, nutrient-dense, grain- and sugar-free, whole and unprocessed foods will nourish both body and mind. They promote an all-encompassing, nurturing alternative to fad diets and processed, pre-made meals, focused on taste, quality foods and ingredients, traditional wisdom, and modern science.
The recipes are easy enough for midweek meals but with enough flair to share with friends; you'll learn why eating the right fat feels good in your body, why a plate of meat and two veggies fills you up better than any low-fat pasta dish, and how you can put an end to your sugar crashes and cravings. The Art of Eating Well is a unique approach to a healthy cookbook; there are no calorie counters. This book is about eating simple, homemade, family-style food—food that your grandparents or great grandparents ate—that will reawaken your taste buds and tune you into the taste of real food, so you can take control over what goes into your body and look and feel
better as a result!
