Imagine having a peaceful relationship with food. One which leaves you feeling healthy, happy and full of life. No anxiety or guilt. No calorie counting or cutting out food groups. No wasting energy worrying about what to eat or striving for a perfect diet that doesn't exist. You're not alone - many people feel anxiety around food, including the need to always 'eat clean', or feeling guilty after eating food that is considered unhealthy or not 'pure'. In some cases this can lead to eating disorders such as orthorexia. In Fear-Free Food, nutritionist and Intuitive Eating Counsellor Nicola Jane Hobbs shows you how to break free from the toxic messages of diet culture, make peace with food and discover how to truly nourish yourself. Filled with compassionate advice, mindset techniques and practical steps to help you trust your body and find food freedom, as well as science-backed information dispelling widespread nutrition myths, Fear-Free Food shows you how to replace dieting and deprivation with nutrition and nourishment. With over 80 nutritious and delicious recipes to reignite your passion for eating, ranging from Italian Baked Eggs, Sweet Moroccan Falafel and Pan-fried Salmon Tikka, to Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, Honey Oat Banana Bread and Carrot Cake Cookies. Each recipe embraces the Fear-Free Food philosophy of balanced, fun, fear-free eating to inspire you to get creative in the kitchen and fall in love with food, your body and your life!
