Nutrition Brought to Life
“I was really delighted to come across Nutrition Brought to Life by Kirsten Chick, which is clearly tuned in to the latest scientific evidence on diet, and also feels inspiring, compassionate and achievable for the reader. It’s a book that I’m sure would be really helpful for a lot of people.”
— Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
This complete guide to nutrition cuts through the confusion, and brings the science and research to life. At the same time, each chapter provides opportunities to reflect, explore new ways of eating and thinking about food, and try new recipes. So rather than imposing strict rules that may only work for a few people, it helps you to find your way – with clear guidance and a myriad of useful tips and support.
Nutrition is not just about what food to put on your plate, but how well you digest, absorb and use it. It’s also about how food makes you feel, physically, mentally and emotionally. Kirsten takes you through every step of the process, and explains how diet impacts every aspect of your health and well-being. Learn how to:
• Use proteins, carbohydrates, fats and other nutrients to your advantage, with an in-depth understanding of what they do and how to eat them
• Improve digestion and your relationship with food
• Increase energy and vitality
• Reduce inflammation and strengthen your immune system
• Nourish your microbiome (including gut bacteria)
• Support your gut-brain-adrenal triangle
• Cook 50 new recipes
• Support your detoxification processes
Packed with essential information to help stave off chronic illness and unhappiness, and keep you enjoying life for longer. The number one resource for anyone who wants to support their health through nutrition, as well as a complete handbook for nutrition students and health practitioners.
