Cookbook inspiration from our Nutritionists
If like us you love cookbooks you might want to let your friends and family know about our favourite picks:
Giulietta's Top 3 Cookbooks:
1. Get The Glow by Madeleine Shaw -  of all the 'trendy' instagram-style cookbooks that have come out in recent years this is my favourite. Why? Because all the recipes are easy to prepare, well balanced and unpretentious! I know I can always find an easy mid-week recipe in here. The breakfast section is also packed full of inventive and interesting options which keep you full for hours on end. Unlike lots of other 'trendy' books, Madeleine's recipes also contain plenty of protein and fat which makes them great to recommend to clients.
2. Stewed! Nourish your soul by Alan Rosenthal  - winter is the time to pull my slow cooker out from hibernation and this book has 80 amazing recipes that keep me busy all winter long. I love being able to throw some ingredients into a big pot in the morning and come home to a delicious dinner! What I love about this book is its variety - from Prawn Jambalaya to Spicy Ethiopian Beef Stew to Ghanian Chicken and Peanut Stew this book has a stew from every corner of the world covered! Perfect for lifting your mood on those cold, dark winter nights!
3. Mediterranean Food and Cooking by Jacqueline Clarke and Joanna Farrow - this is one of the first cookbooks I ever added to my collection. Growing up in Gibraltar I absolutely love any recipe that reminds me of long, lazy days on the beach. This book goes round the whole Mediterranean and is jam packed with fresh and inspiring recipes. It's also a great one to pull out when you want to impress at dinner parties. I may be biased but I still think Mediterranean food is the best and this book always provides me with new ideas to experiment with.
Emily's Top 3 Cookbooks
1. Love Bake Nourish by Amber Rose - I love baking but I don't like to eat wheat or consume refined sugar, so this book is a fantastic resource. Amber uses natural forms of sweetener such as fruit or maple syrup and different flours such as polenta or almond flour. Everything I have baked from this book has been delicious and nutritious. The Chocolate Chestnut cake is perfect for Christmas!
2. Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi. I love Middle Eastern food and Yotam Ottolenghi is my favourite chef. In this book he shows you how to make vegetables and pulses the star of the show. The dishes are full of amazing flavours using herbs, spices and unusual ingredients. Vegetables need never be dull again!
3. The 30 Minute Cook by Nigel Slater. My copy of this book has had so much use that it no longer has a cover! I was bought this book before I started studying nutrition and it inspired me to start cooking from scratch more regularly. The recipes are all straightforward, delicious and perfect for a midweek meal.
