An immensely doable healthy eating book, the recipes are short on preparation but high on nutrition - quick and easy family meals. Unlike many healthy eating books this is low on “weird” ingredients, Sally Bee is well aware that eating seaweed is just not going to cut the mustard when you’re trying to tempt a child into eating well. Losing weight isn’t the aim of the book but following Sally Bee will definitely trim the waistline without leaving you feeling deprived.

The Recipe for Life : Healthy Eating for Real People Synopsis

Bestselling author and home cook Sally Bee is back with a collection of deliciously simple recipes that show how easy it is to follow a healthy diet for life. Many of us know the principles of healthy eating but actually incorporating them into daily life is much harder. Whether it's eating more fruit and vegetables, reducing fat without losing flavour or feeding a family after work without the aid of a take-away menu, Sally Bee explains how to make good food second nature. Sally isn't a dietician, but a busy mum who knows how tough it can be to change eating habits. Her down-to-earth advice and realistic approach is borne from her own experience of life-threatening heart disease, from which she recovered thanks to her own delicious and easy-to-follow eating plan. Sally understands how real people eat and how recipes must be quick and made with affordable, readily available food. Her plan won't leave you feeling deprived or hungry, but allows you to enjoy many of your favourite foods in a balanced way. Recipes for Life offers refreshingly simple advice and tasty dishes that will change your eating habits and help you enjoy a healthy mind and body - not just for a few weeks, but for life. Recipes include: Chicken Korma Healthy Chinese Chicken Wraps Smoked haddock and leek pie Healthy Fish Chips and Mushy Peas Roast Monkfish with Olives and Capers All-in-one Lentil and Sausage Casserole Spanish Pork and Bean Stew Caramelised Veggies with Sausages and Baked Sweet Potato Winter Salad Asparagus and Artichoke Salad with Wild Rice and Basil Dressing Pumpkin and mushroom lasagne Broccoli and Leek Bake Apricot and Pistachio Tart.
