The Recipe for Life

The Recipe for Life

Bestselling author and home cook Sally Bee’s collection of deliciously simple recipes that show how easy it is to follow a healthy diet for life.

Many of us know the principles of healthy eating but actually incorporating them into daily life is much harder. Whether it’s eating more fruit and vegetables, reducing fat without losing flavour or feeding a family after work without the aid of a take-away menu, Sally Bee explains how to make good food second nature.

Sally isn’t a dietician, but a busy mum who knows how tough it can be to change eating habits. Her down-to-earth advice and realistic approach is borne from her own experience of life-threatening heart disease, which she recovered from thanks to her own delicious and easy-to-follow eating plan. Sally understands how real people eat and how recipes must be quick and made with affordable, readily available food. Her plan won’t leave you feeling deprived or hungry, but allows you to enjoy many of your favourite foods in a balanced way.
