Eating the right sort of fat is tantamount to a good and balanced diet. Fats are a major source of energy, contain all the essential fatty acids and help the body to absorb vitamins A, D and E. Your body needs fat to help protect cells and curtail inflammation. But it is important that you are choosing the right fats.

Nicola Graimes dispels the myths about fats, including information on which fats are healthy, how to avoid trans fats, how to increase your intake of mono- and poly-unsaturated fats, what is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol and what your daily fat intake should be. She showcases the best ways to prepare and cook fats for maximum nutrition and flavour and minimum nutrient loss.

With a collection of over 50 recipes, Nicola covers Breakfasts, Small Plates, Big Plates, Sides and Treats. Each recipe has a nutritional breakdown of saturated and unsaturated fats and calories to guide you.

Bursting with delicious, speedy recipes, this is a practical and inspirational approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
