Healthy eating must be one of the most written about subjects. Almost every day we’re given advice on what we should and shouldn’t eat. Much of it goes over my head. But as a so-called flexi eater – someone who follows a plant-based diet with fish, and occasional meat – I recently found a book, the Doctor’s Kitchen 3-2-1, excellent. The author, Dr Rupy Aujla, is a practising GP and a nutritionist. Not only are the recipes in his book easy to prepare, tasty and nutritious, they all can be cooked in one dish.
Here’s Dr Rupy’s introduction:
‘What is 3-2-1?
It’s a brand new way of cooking delicious food that will completely change your life. Every recipe is formulated to contain 3 portions of fruit and veg per person, each meal serves 2 people and only requires 1 cooking pan (like a roasting tray, saucepan or casserole dish) … that’s it!’ Dr Rupy Aujla
The Doctor doesn’t preach but provides solid nutritional evidence backing up his belief that we can all eat our way to good health.
Take a look at The Doctor’s Kitchen site and gain access to many delicious recipes.
His weekly podcast, The Doctor’s Kitchen, is very good and free. You can subscribe through his website and all other podcast providers.
My recent publications
Otto and Frankie, my latest novel, is about a dying man’s fight against injustice, his wife’s unusual affair, and the love from his long-lost daughter.
Otto and his daughter Frankie could not be more different. He’s rich, an acclaimed author, human rights activist, and lives in England. She lives in New York, just about survives from one pay cheque to the next and hasn’t seen or spoken to her father for twenty years. Dutifully reunited by his impending death, she’s amazed to find him a kind and noble man who, while grappling with his wife’s bizarre affair, champions for the world’s forgotten and dispossessed to his last. After Otto’s death, Frankie’s admiration for her father leads her into a dangerous and life changing pursuit.
Life in four stories
Recently, I donated a substantial sum to the INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE OF THE RED CROSS (ICRC) from the proceeds of this little book of shorts. ICRC help the most vulnerable communities fight COVID – 19.
Four shorts: two about life, love, and death; one a poignant and disturbing memory that dangles a question unanswered; and one a wild fantasy – plus the first chapter of my latest book, Otto and Frankie.
By buying this book you are helping fund ICRC in its valuable work.
