Forget so-called superfoods, discover the ‘common or garden’ produce you can use as potent preventative medicine.

Sophie Manolas, a straight-talking, down-to-earth clinical nutritionist, is passionate about showing people how they can eat their way to being the greatest, healthiest version of themselves.

Defying food fads, Sophie’s refreshing approach will inspire you to take eating well out of the too hard basket, and fill your shopping trolley with a wider, more nourishing repertoire of everyday fresh foods.

In The Essential Edible Pharmacy she takes over 60 of the most commonly available nutrient-dense foods (covering everything from leafy greens to root vegetables and legumes, from herbs and spices to fruits, nuts and seeds), and with great warmth, enthusiasm and knowledge explains exactly why each of these foods is so good for you.

This is followed with a simple and delicious recipe for each ingredient that will entice even the fussiest tastebuds. Over 60 simple yet mouth-wateringly delicious recipes are included, such as Wholesome Lentil Dahl; Chicken, Mushroom and Ginger Hot Pot; Spinach, Sweet Potato and Quinoa Burgers; Decadent Brazil Nut Truffles; Baked Apples with Macadamia Crumble; and Salted Coconut and Strawberry Semifreddo.

Fully illustrated throughout with gorgeous photographs of fresh produce and flavoursome recipes, this is a practical and beautiful reference book that will both entertain and educate. Supercharge your health and tingle your taste buds into life with The Essential Edible Pharmacy.
