In Donna's own words:
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself, it’s that I’m at my happiest when life is balanced.
It rings true in all areas – work and play, friends and family, and, for me especially, food.
Diets have never been my thing. I don’t like the idea of anyone being on one!
But I do love the way food can make me feel, uplifting me with energy, nourishing me with cosy goodness, or treating me with a little sweetness.
life in balance is about embracing food and all its benefits.
It’s my everyday approach to eating. Each chapter, from breakfast through to baking, has simple recipes enriched with nature’s superfoods – think leafy greens, bright fresh berries, creamy nuts and nourishing grains.
Plus, I’ve profiled all my power pantry staples for you (ingredients like chia seeds, coconut sugar, buckwheat flour and raw cacao) so you’ll feel confident to add them to yours.
I hope this book inspires you to find your own perfect balance, while enjoying every bite!
