Food is our most powerful medicine. This outstanding book introduces and teaches us how to apply the ancient wisdom and traditions of the healing that comes through food according to Chinese medicine.

Ellen provides a keen and comprehensive understanding behind the basic principles of Chinese medicine so they can be easily applied to our day-to-day lives. She then takes these same concepts, expands on them and applies to the food we should be eating in order to maximize the tenets of Chinese dietary therapy. Eating well is essential to good health and Chinese medicine believes that food truly is medicine. In an easy-to-understand and straightforward manner, Ellen explains how and which combination of foods and flavours act upon the body to move qi (which is energy) and how they act on the body to warm or cool. Many of the modern day chronic health problems caused by lifestyle, genetics and stress can be helped by distinctive and long lasting changes in the way we eat. 150 enticing recipes organized by season help you easily put the theory of Chinese medicine into practice.

Easy dishes for all occasions for colourful health. It's been known for some time that colourful foods and spices help to boost nutrition and promote good health, but how do we do this without crunching our way through yet another boring salad of peppers and carrots? Rainbow Food has the answer: 50 easy and delicious recipes for all tastes using standard grocery foods. The only change to make will be fewer potatoes in the grocery bag and more vibrant fresh fruits and vegetables. The book opens with a brief description of the three most powerful nutrients in colourful foods-chlorophyll, carotenoids, polyphenols- and what their roles are in good health. This is followed by instructions on how to create natural food colouring for food, featuring the 50 recipes, many of them using vegetables and fruits past their prime yet nevertheless edible and nutritious. In this colourful and healthy book you will find recipes for: Appetizers e.g., Aperitif mix with dried fruits; Pickled roasted peppers; Marbled eggs; Lacto-fermented vegetables; Carpaccio of root vegetables and gremolata sauce; Coloured cabbage tabbouleh; Marinated grilled peppers; Rainbow crudite; Spring rolls. Main Dishes and Accompaniments e.g., Roasted heirloom carrots with balsamic, yogurt and pomegranate sauce; Wonderful oven ratatouille; Winter veggie bowl with lentils; Colourful tagliatelle; Old tomato tart; Rainbow pizza; Gnocchi; Hasselback potatoes, roasted corn and candied tomatoes; Omelette with arugula, courgette and borage flowers; Harlequin bean salad; Rainbow maki sushi; Vegetable skewers with smoked tofu.

Frozen and Liquid e.g., Fruit popsicles; Dried fruit ice cream; Fruit Iced rooibos tea with fruit; Mojitos. Unicorn food recently hit Instagram, Starbucks and other food providers but little of it gets its colour or nutrition from nature; it could be said that the synthetic colourings are downright garish. Rainbow Food, however, uses beautiful, naturally colourful foods that attract the eye and stimulate the appetite. It makes it easy to put a truly nutritious rainbow-not an artificially coloured unicorn-on everyone's plate.
