We all know we need to eat our five-a-day, but sometimes it s hard. No longer. Over half the recipes in this book: soups, salads, curries and family favourites, are carefully created to include ALL your five in just one dish. Job done!
It is now known that five-a-day is, in fact, a minimum, so the other recipes focus on how to top yourself up to 7, or more, with delicious smoothies, cakes, puddings and snacks. There s also a section on children's food, to start them off on the right track for a long and healthy life.
Whether your goal is simply to eat more healthily, or you are following a particular diet 5:2, low fat, low carbohydrate, vegetarian, vegan this book has plenty for you. All the recipes are meat-free, but are easily adaptable to include meat or fish.
All the recipes are inexpensive to make, and use ingredients that are readily available. Curries and spice, traditional British food, exciting modern salads and filling soups: the food you love, made healthier. Indulge in a Goan aubergine and sweet potato curry; discover how to make a shepherds pie that contains ALL your five-a-day; or snack on cucumber maki with red pepper houmous. I bet you didn't think a chocolate mousse could provide two of your five-a-day, but it can!
