EAT IT TO BEAT IT…

‘Food is medicine’ might be an increasingly fashionable term right now, but it was coined by Hippocrates, regarded as the father of Western medicine, 2500 years ago. He believed wholesome food is the basis of good health. ‘Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food,’ as the quote goes.

This much we know. There is no one miracle food or cure-all superfood. There are plenty of occasions when what you need is medicine. However, eating a good range of healthy foods can have a huge impact on your physical and mental wellbeing. What you eat plays a critical role in controlling inflammation levels, balancing blood sugar, regulating cardiovascular health (blood pressure, cholesterol levels), how you absorb nutrients, and more.

Here in our mini food-fixers section we bring you nutritious dishes to see off colds, meals to support a healthy gut and prevent afternoon belly bloat, plus plates to support brain power to keep your grey matter sharp for life. And they’re all delicious, too!

HONEYED CITRUS SALAD

BOOST YOUR VITAMIN C WITH A ZINGY, BEAUTIFUL DESSERT.

Take 2 large oranges and 2 pink grapefruit. Slice the tops and bottoms and pare away skin and pith. Slice oranges into thin rounds and arrange on platter. Segment grapefruit flesh and drop over the orange slices. Top with 8 dates, pitted and torn. Spoon over 2 tbsp honey and sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon. Marinate for 30 mins, then scatter over pomegranate seeds, fresh mint leaves and chopped pistachios to serve.
