Everyday Superfoods

Everyday Superfoods


The real food medicines that the big health companies and supermarkets don’t want you to know about

A hundred years ago, our food was grown locally using natural fertilisers. Fruit and veg travelled short distances from farm to plate. Certain foods were available only in certain seasons, just as nature intended.

Now supermarket shelves groan with food air-freighted from thousands of miles away. We fly vegetables from the other side of the world so we can eat asparagus in winter. We even import food we already grow here in Britain!

In 2010, the Independent newspaper took 10 foods grown in the UK. They found seven major supermarket chains importing these foods from as far away as South America. Asda sold aspargus from Peru, strawberries from Spain and cauliflower from France. Marks & Spencer sold beans from Guatemala and broccoli from Spain.

This is damaging in many ways:

  • The food miles racked up cause havoc to the environment thanks to carbon emissions from plans, ships and trucks
  • Local producers in Britain are being edged out of the market, unable to get their food on the supermarket shelves
  • The time it takes for food to get from the field to the plate depletes the levels of nutrients and the taste of the product

This is crazy. And I want to show you how you can avoid this without paying through the nose for fad foods or buying organic...That’s the reason why I chose to write this book – I wanted to show you how you can use ordinary, everyday and often boring foods to improve your health, save you money and actually deliver really exciting and interesting meals.
