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.

Jamie Oliver Everyday super food review TV series and book

New July 2016 – Jamie cookbook – Jamie’s Super Food Family Classics

From Jamie Oliver at last some really Everyday Super Food in Jamie’s new cookbook where there are loads of healthy recipes – with the super foods already included!! Read the cook book review of what is in fact Jamie’s guide to improving Men and Women’s health.

Based on recipes that you can enjoy everyday but more than that – a lifestyle change!!!

Are we listening to the advice from Jamie? This is potentially a book that can change our lives. Overall excellent!

Best selling cookbooks now

After reading – I recommend this new book from Jamie Oliver – Everyday Super Food.

Why?

Because of the very thorough work by Jamie and what this book can do for us all. We follow the recipes – Jamie has used his skills and knowledge to design super food recipes that stills tastes fabulous but packs in all that goodness that our bodies need.

To see more about the book and how much it costs to order – click the image for our best half-price offer:

Notice the clever play on words, Superfood meaning those foods that have super-charged nutrition and Super Food relating to the tasty and delicious conconctions Jamie has developed…………..

While reading all the new ‘stuff’ from our stars, celebrities and chefs I know there is justification for watching what we eat.

Cut back sugar, select the correct fat, watch for gluten free foods, sort out your gut get your microbiome under control. There are many of us who need to watch our diet.

A major concern is of course diabetes and we don’t seem to know how to avoid this major health concern.

All these new ideas are based on studies that are trying to contribute to the furthering of our knowledge about what we are – what we eat and how what we eat affects us and our bodies.

Good food, that is nutritious – do we have the time to be aware of all these factors?

So what is in the book? I have my copy now – note publication is on 27 August 2015.

The book is, as usual, beautifully produced. Great pictures.

There are sections on Breakfast, Lunch,  Dinner,  Snacks and Drinks.

Jamie has a section explaining his study for a nutrition diploma. He has consulted with all the experts and studied current knowledge about health, nutrition and wellbeing.

Recipes include dairy-free, gluten free and vegan.

See list of sample recipes below.

His guidance is distilled down into the changes we can make, some small and the new habits we could take on board.

Jamie discusses the food groups, what they are and the portions that we should eat. Calories, fat and sugar and their daily limits are given. The recipes in the book are all structured to show the calories,  fat, saturated fat, protein, carbohydrates, sugar, fibre and cooking time.

Each foodgroup is then discussed in detail and the quality and quantity of each that we need. For example carbs, fats – what is good – what is bad.

How do so many of the Greeks in Ikaria live to 90 with great healthy lives?

Simply – by every day – eating wonderful and natural food.

Milk and it’s benefits – healthy alternatives!

The liquid we all need and the effects of alcohol.

Jamie gives a guide to shopping and the way to make good choices.

Another very important factor is sleep! I would suggest we ignore a good night’s sleep at our peril. Try a week of seven and a half hours sleep and see the benefits.

There is an app that can help if we are serious about our bodies our lives and feeling well.

Recipes:

  • Baked eggs in popped beans
  • Granola dust
  • Poached egg smashed avocado
  • Smoothie Pancakes
  • Mexican pan-cooked breakfast
  • Black rice pudding
  • Fig banana bread
  • Silken omelette

Jamie’s (see a link to the new book) Everyday Super Food makes eating well exciting, delicious, easy and fun.

Find Jamie’s new book in your country………….

Again Jamie is aware of our busy lives and lack of free time, so no matter how busy you are, this new book is designed to provide us with healthy eating solutions the Jamie. He has designed a way that is both straightforward and achievable, making it super easy to choose and make exactly the kind of meals that suit you.

You know, Jamie’s heart is certainly in the right place, his concern for our potential to become overweight and trend to ill health is not misplaced. He does make alot of money – yes- but Jamie is in the position of being able to help influence people and he is trying hard to get the healthy message across. An honest approach that I think gives Jamie the grounds for some attention and respect.

Amazon Book Review:

“The book is divided into breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and every tasty meal is nutritionally balanced so that any combination over the day will bring you in under your recommended daily allowance of calories, allowing you to enjoy snacks and drinks on the side. You can eat Smoothie Pancakes with Berries, Banana, Yoghurt and Nuts for breakfast, Tasty Fish Tacos with Game-Changing Kiwi, Lime and Chilli Salsa for lunch and Griddled Steak and Peppers with Herby-Jewelled Tabbouleh Rice for dinner, and still be healthy! Whether you dip in and out of it, eat from the book Monday to Friday or use it faithfully every day for a month, it’s totally up to you.

In Everyday Super Food, Jamie’s done all the hard work for you – all you need to do is choose a delicious recipe, cook it up and, most importantly, enjoy it.

Every meal in this book is a good choice and will bring you a step closer to a healthier, happier you.”

I suppose this is a plea for us to be careful about what we eat. Does it not make sense that the food that we eat – its quality, its component constituents and their efficiacy – our sleep and generally how we take care of our selves will affect our bodies gradually each day? All adding up to wear and tear over the weeks and years.

If we maximise the care and attention we give to our food and to our bodies, sleep and relaxation, then should we expect to live longer and perhaps have a better quality of life?

Or can we really eat anything and not be affected?

His new approach to eating, is very helpful and the new book Super Food is a great guide to the new healthy way of eating….

Sea Bass recipe

Jamie Oliver Super food every day

The accompanying TV program has started see Channel 4 watch Jamie Superfood – Squash Daal with Fried Egg, and Griddled steak Episode 1

Supplementing your diet is one thing, however getting these health providing foods is sooo much better….  Jamie’s recipes include nuts, seeds, greens, coloured veg and minimal fruit, examples of gluten free, wheat free choices and low in sugar and only healthy fats.

Try looking after yourself, eat well, keep fit, keep active and most of all get 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Better moods, memory, perfomance are all possible examples of good nutrition.

Hopefully we can assist our body to will retain as long as possible the youthful health that we all had? Keep well and change your life.
