There is also a PDF version available for £9.99 which has the nutritional content of the meal ideas removed (for those who don’t want to see the calorie content etc.). If you would like to buy this version then please email:

This book takes you step by step through advice for:

  • Nutrition tips
  • Advice for food shopping
  • Meal preparation
  • Creating balanced meals
  • Choosing snacks
  • Adopting the mindset of a ‘food realist’

The second half of the book contains 50 quick and balanced meal ideas so that you can put this nutrition advice into practice.

Your No-Nonsense Guide to Eating Well highlights the importance of adopting a balanced and flexible approach to eating well as “food should compliment your life, not dominate it”.
