The Little Green bed shows you how easy it is to cook healthy tasty dishes and for you and your whole family, plus how easy it can be to eat your greens. The meals are all based around a bed of greens - 'The Little Green Bed' - and I create tasty recipes which can fast become a staple in your household and a family favourite. I believe healthy eating is not about fad dieting and that no one need to deprive themselves of eating good food, however no one need feel bloated and only know how to cook the foods that make us put on weight.
With the assistance of talented photographer Madara Kurtsia, THE LITTLE GREEN BED is a cookbook which aims to be not only full of delicious recipes but looks amazing to. With recipes including prawn and chorizo pasta, along with a green juice, kale crisps a green smoothie and other tasty ways to get your greens.
You’ll enjoy the recipes and if you take on this way of cooking, you could also lose weight and feel healthier, as you will be consuming more fibrous nutrient dense vegetables and less carbohydrate foods such as pasta and rice - which the cookbook does allow. Pasta in fact when cooked al-dente is a low GI carbohydrate and is perfectly healthy staple in the diet if not overeaten. So many of us over eat pasta and cereals and this book focuses on eating these in small amounts in combination with lots of vegetables.
The cookbook advises around a Mediterranean diet, which is the best evidence based diet for heart health and longevity.
