Description of this Book

Eating healthily can be a confusing business. But what if there were a single, simple change you could make that would transform your health, without forcing you to give up the foods you love? According to a growing body of international studies, little tweaks to your everyday diet to get you beyond the 5-a-day minimum and towards 10-a-day could slash your risk of developing the biggest diseases to affect the Western world. In fact, experts agree that simply eating more fruit and veg is the single most important dietary change you can do for your health! As only 3 out of 10 people are even achieving the minimum amount of fruit and veg, this book aims to make getting there easy. No gimmicks, no 'banned' foods, no miserly portion sizes. Just 80 of the classic recipes you know and love made healthier (and tastier) by simply upping the amount of fruit and veg in them, all backed by the best science available.

Author's Bio

James Wong is a Kew-trained botanist, science writer and broadcaster based in London. Graduating with a Master of Science degree in Ethnobotany in 2006, he pursued his key research interests of under-utilized crop species and traditional food systems through field work in rural Ecuador, Java and southern China. He is the author of the best-selling books Grow Your Own Drugs, Homegrown Revolution and, for Mitchell Beazley, RHS Grow for Flavour (more than 64,000 copies sold) and How to Eat Better (more than 85,000 copies sold). He has presented BBC2's award-winning series Grow Your Own Drugs and co-presented, with Dr Michael Mosley, The Secrets of Your Food - a major BBC series on the science of food. He has a column in the Observer magazine. With his obsession for food almost eclipsing his love of plants, James's small London garden serves as a testing station for all manner of crops from around the world. Nutritional Consultants: Rosie Saunt (RD) and Helen West (RD) of The Rooted Project Nutrition and wellness is a booming industry with a critical problem at its core: anyone can call themselves a guru and dole out advice to the public. The Rooted Project is an award-winning enterprise founded by registered dietitians Rosie Saunt and Helen West. They love food but hate nutri-nonsense and have made it their mission to empower people to choose what goes on their plates with the latest science-backed information.
