This authoritative new title from health and wellness expert Renee Elliott is a modern encyclopedia of 99 brilliant ingredients that will help you use them in the best possible and easiest way. Carefully curated by Renee in close collaboration with the buyers of pioneering organic supermarket Planet Organic, it's a mix of great ordinary ingredients that you may be taking for granted - like apples, nuts and beans - and ingredients you may have heard of but haven't yet included in your diet. Eating well as Renee says is 'unavoidably important' for she believes 'many of the illnesses that plague us today, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease are the result of poor eating habits'. The look and feel of this important book will appeal to both millennials and longstanding foodies and for all those looking for an invaluable guide for eating well and living better.

A 'Piece of Passion' from the Publisher...

'The first time I met Renee Elliott I was watching her at panel discussion on start-up businesses in the wellbeing industry. Renee is a wonderful public speaker, and as the pioneer of Planet Organic, she is also an inspiring and hugely experienced entrepreneur. I knew immediately that she was someone I wanted to work with and I was delighted when she agreed to write this book for us. We at Pavilion have learnt a tremendous amount while working on this book and are incredibly proud of What to Eat and How to Eat It. Renee’s take on health and the wellness industry is unique, and her knowledge is second to none. An encyclopaedia of 99 super foods, Renee explains each of their benefits and the best way to prepare and cook with them in delicious recipes. Renée is an established, informative and authentic voice and I am absolutely thrilled to publish What to Eat and How to Eat It.' ~ Katie Cowan, Publisher, Pavilion Books
