There’s a sure-fire way to feel good and that’s to eat well. And it’s eas­ier than you think

Women's Fitness (UK) - - Contents -

From new su­per­foods that are con­stantly pop­ping up on su­per­mar­ket shelves to the lat­est gad­gets that prom­ise to make your healthy life­style eas­ier, the world of healthy eat­ing is con­stantly grow­ing. But one man is al­ways ahead of the well­be­ing curve, and that’s James Duigan. His Cleanand Lean cook­books have been lead­ing the dis­cus­sion in nu­tri­tion for years, and the lat­est in­stal­ment, Cleanand Lean­for­life, is no dif­fer­ent.

Putting health and hap­pi­ness first, the book con­tains 150 recipes to keep you feel­ing vi­brant – all of which are easy to whip up for any­one, whether you’ve been fol­low­ing James from day one or you’re a new fan. One thing you’ll al­ways find with his recipes is that they’re not re­stric­tive, and food is a friend, not an en­emy. ‘Food is there to be cel­e­brated,’ says James. ‘The [clean and lean] phi­los­o­phy is much more fo­cused on food and recipes be­cause that’s what peo­ple were cry­ing out for.’

You’d be for­given for think­ing that healthy eat­ing is a has­sle. Pic­ture-per­fect In­sta­gram-ready meals or ex­pen­sive ‘clean’ restau­rants can make you think it is, but ac­cord­ing to James, the key is sim­plic­ity. ‘You don’t need 17 dif­fer­ent su­per­foods cooked in a fancy bam­boo, moon­rock steamer,’ he jokes. ‘Eat as many good qual­ity fruits and veg­eta­bles as you can and if you eat meat, try and keep it or­ganic or lo­cally sourced wher­ever you can.’ Fol­low­ing this very ba­sic con­cept will make the clean and lean life­style – and cook­ing up the recipes – a breeze for you.

While James’ nu­tri­tion switch-up turned him from a hy­per­ac­tive, trou­ble­some kid into the pic­ture of health he is to­day, Cleanan­dlean­for Life will bring you your own ben­e­fits. ‘It’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to de­scribe how good you can feel when you start to treat your­self with kind­ness and choose foods which work for you,’ he says. We can pre­dict things like more sound­ful sleep, an in­crease in en­ergy, and of course im­proved im­mu­nity. ‘Ba­si­cally any­thing in your life just gets 10 times bet­ter be­cause that’s what healthy feels like,’ James adds.
