Sometimes you meet people and you just ‘click’. That’s what happened when I met Catherine Saxelby (read about our funny first meeting here, scroll to the last paragraph).
She’s just one of those people who are instantly likeable because they’re so honest, generous and extremely knowledgable in their field.
As a reader of this blog you know that I am very health conscious and I love to know the nitty gritty of every little thing about food. How it fuels our body (protein, carbs etc), exactly why it’s good for us (vitamin content etc), how foods can be combined with other foods for maximum health – and most of all, how to make raw ingredients taste delicious without losing any of the good stuff. As in, nutrients.
That’s why I loooove meeting nutritionists. I pick their brains until they politely move on to speak to someone else. But not Catherine. She always lets me go on and on and seems to genuinely enjoy it!
Above is Catherine’s personal mantra, which I absolutely love! It speaks directly to all my nutritional needs and I bet it does for many of you too.
I’m looking forward to having this companion on hand when Poppy asks me a curly nutrition question, because although I can easily ‘Google it’, it’s nice to flick through a beautiful book by someone you have personally met – and there’s no spam ads to contend with!
Congrats Catherine, your book is wonderful.
