Lee Holmes believes it's time to escape the cycle of restrictive and fad diets, and allow ourselves to fall in love with food all over again. In Supercharge Your Life, she shows us how to shed our fear of eating the 'wrong' thing and instead celebrate beautiful and nourishing food, embrace commonsense eating and make our kitchen the heart of our home.
You will find out how to set up your food workspace; simplify meal preparation; stock your pantry, fridge and freezer; and master cooking vegetables. Lee shares flavour pairings and food partnerships information; advises on setting up a basic herb and vegetable patch; and presents some inspiring tablescapes where you can rediscover the lost art of mealtimes at shared gatherings with family and friends.
Recipe chapters include:
- Refreshing Drinks
- Tummy Warming Drinks
- Breakfast Dishes
- Snacks, Breads and Dips
- Main Meals and Comfort Food
- Morning and Afternoon Tea
Lee also provides menu suggestions for occasions ranging from a romantic supper to a picnic rug lunch with friends. Woven through the book is a discussion of the cornerstones for living a 'whole' life: home and family; health and longevity; friends and community; spirituality; finances; career and passion; and of course, beautiful and nourishing food, which can be a connecting force in every aspect of our lives.
