THE 5 TASTIEST POWER MEALS
This, gentlemen, is our guide to clean eating for dirty appetites
FOOD, LIKE FASHION, IS SUSCEPTIBLE TO TRENDS.
FTaste is subjective; it’s at the mercy of vagary and whim. But what about nourishment? You might think that nutrition – it being a science, and therefore by definition objective – would be impervious to impulse. Yet in 2017, ‘eating clean’ remains as on trend as Yeezy Boosts. Consequently, these are confusing times to be a foodie with a vested interest in his health. Never before has there been so much choice between food that hardens arteries on sight and so-called ‘clean’ fare that even the most yielding Instagram filter can’t make toothsome. While tenderstem broccoli sales are up 25%, the most-watched programme on television is the sugar-laced Great South African Bake-Off. Which raises the question: whatever happened to the middle ground?
Now, if the strain of this argument feels like it’s headed toward a sensible conclusion, that moderation is key, fear not. We have tasked nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert (rhitrition.com) and a team of chefs to come up with recipes that deliver on both gluttonous desire and nutritional benefit. And as anyone who has ever sunk their teeth into a hot dog on legitimate health grounds can attest, these guys have more than met the challenge.
