Seasonal wholefood recipes for wellbeing.
Real Food by Mike reminds us of the age-old truth that we are what we eat. Everything we put in our bodies has a profound affect on our wellbeing and longterm health. But this doesn’t mean it can’t also be extraordinarily delicious, diverse and indulgent!
Over four chapters spanning the seasons, acclaimed chef Mike McEnearney harnesses the best produce available to bring you fresh, wholesome recipes you will want to cook and eat over and over. Ranging from breakfast ideas to salads, more substantial dishes, sweet things and even drinks, many of these recipes are simple and take only minutes to prepare; others are broken up into stages to fit in with our busy lives. At the back of the book is the Larder section, to inspire you to make the most of what’s plentiful each season – and give you a head start in the kitchen. The bottom line is that it’s all about flavour. Food in season just tastes better – the food and its flavour both in their prime.
The ultimate aim of Real Food by Mike is to assist you in maintaining good health while enjoying real food that will enhance your life. Mike doesn’t claim to be a doctor, naturopath or nutritionist but rather an inquisitive chef who loves all things food. That’s why he’s provided notes for each recipe, which list the benefits of quality wholefoods and demonstrate how a small amount of education about the medicinal benefits of ingredients can truly have a positive effect on your overall wellbeing.
Beautifully photographed and illustrated, and with notes on the health benefits of each recipe, Real Food by Mike elevates the sometimes lost art of joyful eating with a mind to wellbeing.
