Riverford Farm was started by Guy Watson in 1985 with the three acres of land owned by his family in Staverton, South Devon. Within two years Guy had dedicated the entire area to organic farming and now Riverford is one of the country's largest independent growers, as certified the Soil Association.
This leap came when Guy began to deliver his produce to local shops, including those owned by his brother. Eventually, word spread and an incredibly successful box scheme was set up, in which local distributors were incorporated to provide home delivery, with all the boxes packed at Riverford Farm.
Continuing on from the success of the first Riverford Farm Cook Book and the popularity of the Riverford Organic Vegetables website, this book will be an accessible guide to help readers get the most out of their box all year round.
Guy Watson and Jane Baxter, head chef of Riverford's Field Kitchen, share useful advice on seasonal variations and simple, delicious recipes, with the must-have guide handily organised into months to allow the reader to enjoy it froim January to December. Not only is this a brilliant guide for moving produce from the field to the kitchen, but it is also a celebration of healthy, local and organic food.
In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly healthy foods like tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice: a class of plant-based proteins called lectins. Many people are familiar with one of the most predominant lectins—a substance called gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. But while cutting out the bread and going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task.
Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry will offer an overview of his Plant Paradox program and show readers how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals. He’ll also share his hacks for making high-lectin foods safe to eat, including methods like pressure-cooking grains and peeling and deseeding tomatoes.
With a quick-start program designed to boost weight loss and recipes for smoothies, breakfasts, main meals, snacks, and desserts, The Plant Paradox Cookbook will show readers of The Plant Paradox—and more—how delicious it can be to eat lectin-free.
