This innovative book introduces a whole new way of eating with a unique plan developed specifically at Grayshott Spa, one of the world's leading health spas.
By focussing on digestive health as a route to true health, the Grayshott Plan helps to boost your energy and rebalance weight safely through a nutrient rich diet that will give you everything you need to face the demands of modern life.
The Plan dispels the misguided notion of 'detoxifying' through spartan, punitive regimes and instead focuses on regaining good health by eating the right foods to aid the body's natural detoxification.
The Plan can confidently recommend quality grass-fed red meats, fish, eggs, fermented foods, butter, avocado, and organic vegetables. This is not a plan of privation but a sensible and satisfying approach to food that brings you back to feeling great.
The first section will introduce you to the Plan and provide information and meal plans for a short-term course to rest and repair your digestive tract. The Post-Plan information will show you more foods to introduce to your diet and keep your gut healthy.
The recipe section contains 100 delicious meals split into breakfasts, soups, main meals, vegetable sides, salads and special occasions and includes delicious, satisfying and nourishing meals like:
Baked eggs with tomatoes, peppers and chorizo Porchetta with plum and fig chutney Grilled sole fillets marinated in ginger and tangerine Crayfish cakes with coconut and mango and many more

"Based on the findings of Grayshott Spa in Surrey, England, this book showcases a new way of eating healthy that builds on the idea that the gut is the key to restorative health. Edgson (Eating the Alkaline Way), a nutritional therapist and cofounder of the Food Doctor, a nutritional program, and Palmer, the spa's executive chef, take a naturopathic approach to gut cleansing and rebalancing the digestive system. They don't put forth a diet so much as a way of eating, which combines a broad range of healthy foods with intermittent fasting in order to give the digestive system time to heal and repair itself. This is achieved by allocating two nonconsecutive days per week on which food intake is limited, allowing energy to be redirected from digestion to other parts of the body. The authors identify 10 principles that constitute their plan, such as creating healthy gut flora, omitting dairy, and consuming high-quality protein at every meal. They provide a detailed examination of the food groups, such as animal-based proteins, carbohydrates, root vegetables, and fats. While the details of the plan may imply deprivation, the opposite is actually true. Dishes are satisfying and occasionally border on indulgent, such as confit of duck, porchetta with plum and fig chutney, and roasted tamarind, chilli, ginger, and coriander chicken. The authors include wonderful full-color photos, which make these meals even more appealing. For those seeking better health, there is much here to consider and entice." - "Publishers Weekly"
