Diets come and go. One year you are eliminating red meat from your meals. The next year carbohydrates are the casualties. But what all nutritionists know is that a balanced diet combining vegatables, fruit, meat, fish and carbohydrates in the right quantities is the best diet. If you want to lose weight or simply eat better, reducing fats is the first place to start.
In my first book Green’s Cuisine (see below) and this new book Green’s Greens, I have created quick and easy recipes with little or no fat but bursting with the flavours of The Orient. This new book, with its emphasis on vegetables often imaginatively combined with seafood and meat, uses basil, lemongrass, chillies, fish sauce and other oriental condiments to turn humble vegetables into a symphony of flavours and colours.
Whether you’re a busy mother, a fussy child, a singleton or a bon viveur, Green’s Greens offers quick and easy starters, soups, main courses and desserts, which would not be out of place in your favourite restaurants. Bon appetite!
