How to Eat Better: How to Shop, Store & Cook to Make Any Food a Superfood
SELECT a Braeburn apple over a Fuji and get almost double the antioxidants from a fruit that tastes just as sweet.
STORE strawberries on the counter, instead of in the fridge, and in just four days they will quadruple their heart-healthy compounds.
COOK broccoli with a teaspoon of mustard and send its levels of cancer-fighting potential skyrocketing ten-fold.
Between the rush to keep up with the latest miracle ingredient, anxiety about E-numbers and demonization of gluten/dairy/sugar (or the next foodie villain du jour) many of us are left in a virtual panic in the supermarket aisle. Tabloid headlines, ‘free-from’ labels and judgemental Instagram hashtags hardly help matters – so what should we be buying?
How to Eat Better strips away the fad diets, superfood fixations and Instagram hashtags to give you a straight-talking scientist’s guide to making everyday foods far healthier (and tastier) simply by changing the way you select, store and cook them. No diets, no obscure ingredients, no damn spiralizer, just real food made better, based on the latest scientific evidence from around the world. With over 80 foolproof recipes to put the theory into practice, James Wong shows you how to make any food a superfood, every time you cook.
