10 Easy Steps to lose weight, look younger and feel healthier : Review of Eat Nourish Glow


Review by Ceri Wheeldon

Eat.Nourish.Glow by Amelia Freer

It is refreshing to come across a book which is straightforward, talks common sense and makes you want to take accountability for your own health.

Eat. Nourish. Grow. by Amelia Freer guides you through 10 steps to destock and restock your cupboards and your approach to diet and fitness. Starting many of her chapters with thought provoking quotes such as :

Don't dig your grave with your own knife

Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork

2

Those who think they have no time for exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.

They certainly help to focus the mind!!

Healthy habits rather than restrictions

Amelia writes about creating healthy habits rather than restrictions. She suggests making simple changes, planning ahead to produce healthy home cooked meals as opposed to relying on ready meals, cutting down on sugar. Some of the changes suggested are not things we haven’t heard before or don’t already know, but they are put forward in such a way that you think they are achievable – and maintainable!

Amelia offers lots of alternatives to traditional storecupboard staples such as Coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and tahini and raw nut butters instead of mayonnaise.

Eat. Grow. Nourish. has a collection of delicious, healthy recipes to inspire you , including steamed monkfish with a broccoli and ginger mash, buckwheat toast with harissa ‘butter’, sauerkraut and poached egg , and beef curry (Served with sweet potatoes instead of rice).

Amelia’s philosophy is that we should be conscious about the food we eat, choosing nourishment instead of just ‘food’. She believes that the right food should be savoured and enjoyed  Food is there to nourish and protect, but as well as being healthy it also has to taste great. Amelia’s approach is to look at how food can help prevent illness in the future as we nourish in the present.

Amelia is a nutritional therapist who is credited with Boy George’s recent astounding weight loss.

It is a sensible ‘gentle’ book. Highly recommended!
