Summary from Goodreads.
As a professional athlete, whenever I see a book about nutrition, I am alway intrigued. Nutrition for both my profession, and for my life in general to aid in my job is a massive factor in my lifestyle. Every little things adds up.
The Nutritionist’s Kitchen is spilt into two seperate sections: ‘Your Guide To Using Whole Food As Medicine’, and then recipes. Each section is further split down.
The first section, ‘Your Guide To Using Whole Food As Medicine’ is all all about the food that you consume. We all know that different food contain different vitamins and minerals, and that certain foods are supposed to be better for us than others. Here we get Knowles version of what her thoughts are on the more controversial food are.
The recipes are split down into 5 categories: Recipes for All Season, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. This makes it very convenient to find the appropriate recipe for the time of year. If you are to follow the principles set out in the first section, then this is an extremely useful tool for meal planning and figuring out other recipes that are suitable for the current season.
While this type of nutrition book will be well suited for some, I was not overly convinced that it is for me.
