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

Dr Mosley The Healthy Gut Diet @drmichaelmosley Daily Mail Thursday

Out today – 18 May 2017: Dr. Michael Mosley The Clever Guts Diet and has a series of articles each day in the Daily Mail with free pull-out.

Dr Michael Mosley is famous for the Fast Diet and the 8-week Blood Sugar books.

He is fascinated with how our bodies work, disease, longevity and how to promote long-term and lasting health.

It is a laugh out loud read… although all the advice in the book will do us good , the laughter I had reading is was a therapy in itself!

In Thursday’s Daily Mail, the topic is how to repair a bothersome tummy and the recipes included today are:

  • Seaweed and Prawn courgetti
  • Avocado with smoked salmon
  • Tanya’s healing smoothie
  • Crunchy carrot and beetroot salad
  • Kippers with spinach and tomatoes
  • Happy gut chicken soup
  • Hearty beef and orange stew
  • Moroccan beetroot chicken
  • Classic squid Provencale
  • Mackerel or cod in salsa verde
  • Tummy-soothing bone broth

 

If you have IBS or ‘leaky gut syndrome’ – any stomach or bowel sensitivities – then there is good news, depending on our history, the book can help with advice on how to remove foods from the diet and slowly reintroducing foods to locate those that may be causing the illness. Check out the book for the guidance through this process.

The great thing is the book is now available to buy!!

A large amount of very useful advice, guides and recipes can be found in the very well-written and amusing book – see the links to read more and consider buying the book as a reference volume to keep handy.
