The V word

Could a plant-based lifestyle be the best therapy?

Many people use the phrase ‘you are what you eat’, but it’s not often that we truly think of how deep a phrase that is. Most of the time we talk about the physical benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle: weight loss, glowing skin, anti-ageing etc. But, truly, we don’t discuss the effects a plant-based diet can have on mental health and wellbeing as much as we should.

About PlantBased

This month’s issue is all about embracing the new term; sure it’s not January, so we can’t coin any pun-tastic New Year’s resolutions, but there’s never a bad time of year to make a change; whether that’s reinventing yourself, your diet or even just adopting a more positive outlook on life. September in itself brings with it a feeling of freshness; it marks the changing of season – the start of a sunny summer turning into a mild, golden autumn – while children of all ages will be heading back to school for the start of the academic year. And food wise: it’s all about lunch! We’ll be looking at the most scrumptious, yet simple recipes for your lunchbox, that’ll mean – whether it’s for school or work – you’ll be looking forward to lunch every day. Turn to page 34 for oodles of inspiration for your midday meal. Then we’ll be reinventing the wheel – well, ok, the cauliflower – with some inventive new takes on traditional recipes using this uniquely nutritious vegetable. And for the perfect healthy balance, we’re giving you a selection of tempting cheat-day meals, including my favourite mint choc-chip sandwich cookies (page 53), followed by our biggest health and fitness feature to date. See page 80, for fitness expert Maxim Leach’s top tips and tricks on HIIT workouts. And though most of our summer holidays will have been and gone, there’s no time like the present to start booking the next one! Turn to page 58 where we’ll guide you through the beautiful Comoros and explore its exciting vegan delicacies. For now, just grab an apron and get experimenting!
