‘Food is a celebration, something that brings people together. Create delicious meals that nourish you, your family and friends.’ Pete Evans
Chef and host of My Kitchen Rules, Pete Evans, loves to nourish his body with fresh, healthy food. Food that not only tastes delicious, but also leaves you feeling great by providing all of the most important nutrients and avoiding empty carbs and bad fats.
In Healthy Every Day, Pete shares his favourite recipes for good health and vitality. Inspired by a ʻpaleoʼ way of eating, these are the meals he cooks for his family featuring loads of fresh veggies, nuts and seeds, sustainable seafood and meat, and free of gluten, sugar and dairy. There are no recipes for potato chips in here, but you will find one for crispy Kale Chips that will satisfy you and give you a hit of iron, calcium and antioxidants at the same time.
And instead of the usual fatty and non-nutritious burger and fries, there’s a Burger with the Lot that is full of flavour but won’t leave you feeling bloated and sluggish.
Drawing on his love of the cuisines of Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam and Morocco, he shows you how to make lighter, healthier versions of your favourite breakfasts, salads, curries and burgers. Pete has also been inspired by the fermented food of Korea and Japan, and has included a chapter that shows you how to create your own Kimchi and other delicious fermented dishes, like Summer Kraut with Pineapple and Mint.
And while you won’t find any sugar in this book, there are some delicious gluten- and dairy-free treats, such as Young Coconut Ice Cream and Raspberry Mousse Cheesecakes.
Healthy Every Day makes it easy to change the way you cook and eat, inspiring you to create delicious meals that will make you feel (and look!) fantastic.
