In my second, e-sampler I'm highlighting the wonderful seasonal produce that autumn has to offer as well as offering you some tasty and healthy recipes to appeal to everyone. Despite the weather getting colder, autumn and the transition to the winter months brings wonderful ingredients that are brimming with vitamins, minerals as well as 'phytochemicals'. A number of research papers look at the effect of these chemicals on inflammation, bone health and even cancer which is why I encourage you to eat fresh and seasonal as much as possible. Why not try a bowl of my Fig and Nutmeg Porridge or some delicious, filling Leek and Brussel Sprout Orecchiette and round off with a stunning Rose and Coconut Burfi? I hope you enjoy this tiny peek into what's coming in the main book that is full of tips, information and delicious food that will motivate you to want to cook. In my mind, the key to health starts at mealtimes which is why I'm a firm believer in Plates over Pills. Food is the delicious conversation starter to lifestyle medicine which teaches us how to prevent disease, improve mental health and feel fantastic.
