I wanted to write a cookbook, that was for everyone. And sorry I am not going to say what you might want me to say..
Many 'healthy cook books' tend to strive for and recommend a certain way of living and eating, and it is a whole trend what to put in your mouth today. I believe that every individual is different and as much as seasons change our bodies needs also change, everyone differently. So how can one diet be good for everyone? First of all,
- what do you enjoy eating?
- Second, what is growing around you?
With those two sentences you got it pretty far ahead than any food trends. When it comes to therapeutic, and environmental facts - the food we tend to over eat and are poor in nutrition today because of its high processed and refined end product are; sugar, dairy and gluten.
So I wanted to make a book, without those three - but that still could be used by anyone. I wanted the book to be an inspiration, like a photo book with small stories and facts. As a base, for everyone to use as a creative start to make their own cuisine the way they wanted.
Because I think what people are missing is not a diet - but fun, pleasure and inspiration !
