Simple, easy-to-make natural food fit for the whole family
REVIEW Dr Libby's Real Food Chef
Nutrition guru Libby Weaver teams up with one of Australia's leading organic wholefood chefs, Cynthia Louise, to produce a cookbook that focuses on what Weaver calls "low human intervention foods" - the way it comes in nature.
Vegetables feature strongly in this book. Green not being my favourite colour, I tried the smoothie that had blueberries with its spinach. To my surprise it tasted great.
The food is simple, easy to make and suitable for the whole family.
I am quite hooked on a salad made with fresh basil, red and yellow peppers and spinach - it is really quick to make and I feel quite virtuous because it is healthy.
The only problem I have with this book is that it doesn't state how many servings each recipe makes, so I have stuck to the breakfast, lunch and smoothie recipes as I was a bit concerned I could end up with heaps of food left over. Most of the recipes are gluten-free and those that aren't contain either essene bread or spelt flour - both of which can easily be replaced by gluten-free alternatives.
