About the Book

It’s easy to eat the same old things every week with a family to feed and a budget to stick to, but eating nutritious and delicious food every night is achievable and affordable. Learning how to use, prepare and incorporate a base of new and old ingredients is key to tasty and exciting food and the health of you and your family.

From Peasant Foods to Superfoods does just this. Based on cooking for the entire family, this book guides cooks from all experiences on how to integrate healthy foods into everyday life. Using ingredients we all take for granted in the kitchen, this book takes a ‘keep it simple’ approach, educating readers on the benefits of food and how we can use food as our cheapest and most accessible medicine.

This book explains the simplicity of food and removes much of the confusion and fear of healthy eating. Melissa takes traditional home recipes and transforms them into nutritionally dense super-meals. She uses culinary history to shape her book and educate her readers of food origins and why we ate particular foods and should continue to do so.
