The Sourdough School: Sweet Baking: Nourishing the gut & the mind Hardcover published 3 Sept. 2020

The Sourdough School: Sweet Baking: Nourishing the gut & the mind Hardcover – 3 Sept. 2020 by Vanessa Kimbell

Healthy food, the key to a positive life and at its base should be good bread. Many benefits accrue to sourdough bread. The process of preparing sourdough involves a slow fermentation process. This in turn creates a healthier and lighter dough that is easier to digest. Personally I find this to be the case.

So this process can be applied to a range of breads, tarts, biscuits and others. They can all be made with sourdough. In Vanessa Kimbell’s new book you will find many recipes that will provide for for nourishing the gut but will also improve your mood.

In Vanessa’s book, you will use a variety of flours, including chestnut, spelt and einkorn, as well as blends you can make up. There is a wide variety of options including cakes, tarts and biscuits, to doughnuts, brioche and pretzels.

It is impossible to read this book without wanting to scuttle off into the kitchen.’ Nigella Lawson

The basis for the health benefits based upon gut microbiome considerations, are expained by Vanessa when she considers the health benefits of having diversity in your diet to the amazing work of enzymes.

A fundamental connection between our food, gut microbiome and the potential impact on our mental health. New studies are unveiling links between the microorganisms in our gut and our mood and behaviour, and Vanessa is at the forefront of this research.

‘Britain’s queen of sourdough.’ – Telegraph

‘Vanessa Kimbell wants to change the bread we eat, one loaf at a time. She’s the real deal: a total inspiration.’ – Diana Henry

Just five years ago if someone said to you that they were writing a book about sourdough bread and mental health you would have thought they needed psychiatric help. Today nobody is laughing as the latest science tells us that microbes are the key link between food and the health of our mind and bodies.’ – Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth

A great introduction on how to live as a Vegan:

The authors Henry Firth and Ian Theasby provide the definitive guide. This book is an excellent non-judgemental guide to why and how to become a vegan.

Really beautifully written and explains carefully why we might consider such a path.

No preaching just great ideas and reasoning, no funny stuff.

Eating plant based food might seem strange at first – but the reasoning is based on considering what benefits can plant based food incorporated into your diet provides?

It is a diet that includes a wide variety of nuts, oils, fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.

Bosh gives examples of why this diet might help you and the world.

Check out the reference to the power of plant based nutrition at Natural Food Benefits
