Research shows that 1 in 7 of us across the globe is addicted to ultra-processed foods (UPFs), with 1 in 8 children also addicted to UPFs. Often labelled as ‘healthy’, UPFs are everywhere we look – in our shopping baskets, our children’s lunch boxes and our kitchen cupboards. Yet research has shown these foods are synonymous with ill-health and a litany of chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Breaking free from the hold of these cheap, convenient UPFs is one of the best things we can do for our health, but it can feel impossible to know where to begin.
In UNPROCESS YOUR LIFE, expert nutritionist Rob Hobson sets out practical steps and delicious recipes to make your diet fresher and healthier, yet still bursting with flavour.
Helping to navigate the modern food landscape, Rob explains how to identify UPFs, providing handy tips on choosing foods to suit your lifestyle. The recipes have been structured to satisfy all those moments when we are most vulnerable to ultraprocessed foods, such as dinnertime with the kids, quick meals and packed lunches.
Sharing effortless wholefood swaps and tasty recipes that will create speedy meals, freezer favourites, sauces and snacks, UNPROCESS YOUR LIFE presents a simple, satisfying and achievable way to embrace food without the nasties.
