Now in a new, smaller format The Healthiest Meals on Earth contains recipes for more than sixty dishes and drinks that use nutritious and healthy cooking methods. Forty dishes will combine to create ten different "poly-meals," specially crafted meals that contain key nutrients found to promote long-term health, They include Sweet and Thai Spicy Shrimp and Fruits as well as Persian Chicken with Autumnal Accompaniments. The poly-meals are designed to be eaten three-to-five times a week. Another ten recipes are one-pot meals that include Slow-Cooker Chicken Curry. A chapter on drinks will include nutirious smoothies, "green drinks," and others. Jonny provides healthy cooking tips, as well as an analysis of the foods in each recipe. Side dishes, such as Cold Strawberry Soup, and desserts, such as Raw Chocolate Fondue, are also featured.
Unfortunately, the recipes do not include nutritional values, but most people will find the book an interesting and different approach to healthy cooking. Recommended for most culinary collections. Background: Nutritionist Bowden (The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth) is again exploring healthy nutrition. The emphasis is on polymeal options, which are composed of ingredients that enhance heart and blood vessel health. Readers will find the work organized in an unusual way, with the first ten chapters arranged around a polymeal menu, usually made up of four dishes. Each chapter is lavishly illustrated with additional information about key ingredients and includes a pantry list.
