This innovative book introduces a whole new way of eating with a unique plan developed specifically at Grayshott Spa, one of the world's leading health spas.
By focusing on digestive health as a route to true health, the Grayshott Plan helps to boost your energy and rebalance weight safely through a nutrient rich diet that will give you everything you need to face the demands of modern life.
The Plan dispels the misguided notion of 'detoxifying' through spartan, punitive regimes and instead focuses on regaining good health by eating the right foods to aid the body's natural detoxification.
The Plan can confidently recommend quality grass-fed red meats, fish, eggs, fermented foods, butter, avocado, and organic vegetables. This is not a plan of privation but a sensible and satisfying approach to food that brings you back to feeling great.
The first section will introduce you to the 'Plan' and provide information and meal plans for a short-term course to rest and repair your digestive tract. The 'Post-Plan' information will show you more foods to introduce to your diet and keep your gut healthy.
The recipe section contains 100 delicious meals split into breakfasts, soups, main meals, vegetable sides, salads and special occasions and includes delicious, satisfying and nourishing meals like:
- Baked eggs with tomatoes, peppers and chorizo
- Porchetta with plum and fig chutney
- Grilled sole fillets marinated in ginger and tangerine
- Crayfish cakes with coconut and mango, and many more
