Recipe FAQ…

Q. What kind of diet is all this?

A. All the recipes are 100% raw, whole plant foods, apart from a few spices, like cacao, smoked paprika, Ceylon cinnamon, etc..

I have 2 basic rules for my diet, 1.5 grams of omega 3 and 6 and 25 grams of fibre per 500 calories

Q. What’s with the omega 3 and 6 thing?

A. All my recipes are made to provide approx 1.5g of omega 3 ALA and omega 6 LA per 500 calories. This is a perfect amount and ratio allowing the body to produce all the EPA and DHA it requires to maintain a healthy brain while keep AA production down which is a highly inflammatory insult throughout the body when produced in excessive amounts.

Q. What’s with all the fibre?

A. The more fibre we eat the less health problems we get. I try to get at least 25 grams of fibre for every 500 calories in my recipes.

Q. What’s with all the references to human breast milk?

A. Because a human baby doubles in size in 4 months consuming nothing but human breast milk. So as long as the food we consume is hitting that standard we can rest assured that we are getting all our amino acid requirements.

Q. Which is better, juice or smoothie?

A. See here for thoughts about juice v smoothie.

Q. What blender do i use?

A. I’ve been using a Salter EK2154 1500W BlenderPro for over 14 months and totally recommend it. You can find these at very good prices, under £100, if you hunt around. Huge jug and extremely powerful. Great value for money and you’ll have seriously smooth smoothies that do actually taste much better.
