A powerhouse collection of soups and meal pots that deliver 5 portions of fruit and veg (sometimes more!) that are also low in calories, sugars, carbohydrates and salt, plus are dairy and gluten free.
The first section explains what 5-a-day really means and includes a guide to what counts and what doesn’t, as well as which fruits and veg give you a large dose of sugar. Armed with this better understanding of how to achieve your 5-a-day, you can then aim for even more.
The recipes range from soups such as Pea & Watercress (which also includes onion, apple, spinach and garlic) and Tomato & Aubergine (which also includes onion, peppers, carrot and basil) to Spiced Pineapple & Tomato Stew (which also includes sweet potato, peppers, onion and garlic). Each one makes enough for one person but can easily be adapted for larger servings. They have all been fully analysed by a qualified nutritionist so that the reader can see immediately the benefits of what they’re eating. The authors also show the reader how to create their own 5-a-day soups and meal pots that range from cleansing to therapeutic and everything in between.
