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.
