Supercharge Your Life - Lee Holmes
"Supercharge Your Life includes over one hundred and sixty tried and tested, nourishing recipes that will cover every occasion from breakfast, afternoon tea, dinner, and festive occasions.
The food as always is underpinned by my Supercharged principles of anti-inflammatory, balanced meals that draw from the traditional wisdom of Ayurveda. There are no fandangled ingredients in these pages; just honest, real, accessible food as close to nature as possible.
Supercharge Your Life, is a book that culminates all that I’ve learnt throughout my journey of life and the years of research, cooking and writing I’ve enjoyed during the creation of Supercharged Food.
To be perfectly honest, in the world of wellness I’ve seen the waves of fad diets, exotic superfoods and kale smoothies rage and settle. I’ve also observed the underbelly of the wellness movement; where the extreme focus on clean eating can create more anxiety than it’s really worth.
I wrote this new book to take the fear out of food again. My aim is that it will be a breath of fresh air for our relationship with food; widening our focus from the meaning of food simply being a potential catalyst for health or harm- towards a much broader and truly holistic perspective.
Food ties through every part of our lives, and when we perceive a broader appreciation of food and its power, we can lighten up a little; connecting food with purpose and joy once again!
To help you understand the diverse, multifaceted power that extends from your relationship with food, I bring forward the concept of The Seven Keystones Of Life: Home and Family, Friends and Community, Career and Passion, Finances, Health and Longevity- with Love and Food at the centre of it all. I take you on a journey of how each of these areas represents a complex cultural, philosophical and even political relationship to food, and how each keystone is interwoven.
I explore concepts such as leading your household’s food culture, voting for the ethical production of food with our wallets, food as fuel for our passions and creativity, hospitality as the language of the heart, our food choices being key to a long and a fulfilling life and cultivating a respect for the wonder of earth's provision of food that traces back to our ancestors."
