The book is divided into Kitchen and Pantry Basics; Cooking in Advance; Breakfast; Soups made from nourishing bone broth (quality animal foods are at the heart of what they do); Salads; Sides and Snacks; Main Meals, including Meat, Poultry, Fish; Vegetable Mains; Baking and Desserts; Dips, Dressings and Sauces; Super Powered Juices and Smoothies; Basics. There are also tips on Cooking with Children; Getting a head start on the week with the `Sunday Cook Off`; Frugal Feasts and easy One-Pot Dishes.
Self-taught cooks, the British Hemsley sisters have created, through personal experience, research, and much trial and error, an ethos and style of eating that is disarmingly simple. "Diets" are often not sustainable, andThe Art of Eating Welltakes readers on a journey, gently educating and framing a perspective from which the reader can reclaim the word "diet" as a noun (as in the kind of foods a person habitually eats) rather than a verb (to restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight). Jasmine and Melissa show you how and why cooking and eating organic, nutrient-dense, grain- and refined sugar-free, whole and unprocessed foods will nourish both body and mind. They promote an all-encompassing, nurturing alternative to fad diets and processed meals, focusing instead on taste, quality foods and ingredients, traditional wisdom, and modern science.

“The Art Of Eating Well by Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley, two ultra-chic food-obsessed sisters from London, is anything but a diet cookbook.”
