We rarely wake up feeling energised or refreshed, so we pop some vitamins, slug a coffee and get going. Julie Montagu has the answer. She is The Flexi Foodie and her book of 90 delicious recipes and friendly facts will show you how to introduce plant-based superfoods into your daily diet. Through meat-free, dairy-free and sugar-free recipes made with unrefined, wholesome ingredients, you can raise your energy levels, lose weight, lower your cholesterol, keep blood sugar levels under control, and look and feel more youthful than you have in years. Simply by adding more good foods into your day, you will naturally crowd out the bad ones. So, if you know you've got an indulgent dinner planned, whizz up a green juice in the morning and you'll get your five-a-day in one hit. If the week ahead looks gruelling, make some high-energy power balls on Sunday and eat one every afternoon for a boost. If you love a weekly steak, serve it with one of Julie's nutrient-packed side dishes and you've done some good with minimum effort. Enjoy what you cook, be flexible, eat well and feel so much better with Julie's brilliantly inspiring recipes.
