In Pure & Simple, Pascale Naessens celebrates delicious meals, pleasure, and health with passion.
Her method for staying happy, healthy and slim will help readers acquire new, conscious eating habits and freedom from carbohydrate addiction.
With more than 60 recipes and a new up-to-date approach to eating, Pure & Simple creates a culinary movement.
Naessens‘ approach is building a lifestyle that embraces only natural, unprocessed foods that will leave you satisfied and with more energy.
With gorgeous images of healthy cuisine that inspire, Naessens‘ latest book also exhibits her knack for design and her talent as an acclaimed ceramist.
Her aesthetics are evident in the styling of her book, which she is solely responsible for, while her tableware designs adorn the pages of Pure & Simple.
Naessens‘ ceramic tableware line, Pure, is sought after by home cooks and top restaurants alike.
Pure & Simple shares delicious, simple recipes with a romantic flair that are designed to be shared with friends and family.
More than a cookbook, it is chock-full of the latest nutritional insights, helpful tips, and inspiration for healthy eating.
Mouthwatering recipes for appetizers, mains, and desserts make adopting this eating style entirely uncomplicated.
Naessens emphasizes that what you eat is just as important as how you eat; creating a pleasurable eating experience is not only simple to achieve but something to savor as well.
Naessens came to this realization after experiencing an eating disorder as a model, then delving into the world of health and nutrition and soon becoming a qualified health consultant specializing in traditional Chinese medicine.
She is well versed in a wide array of health practices, including tai chi and shiatsu massage.
Naessens also is a qualified restaurateur.
At its core Pure & Simple focuses on food combinations, demystifying this nutritional philosophy by providing a simple food combining chart with a simple philosophy: replace bread and potatoes with vegetables and fruit at every meal. This is her only rule —concentrated carbohydrates should not be eaten with concentrated protein.
The basic series of food combinations in her meals include meat or fish + vegetables, carbohydrates + vegetables, or dairy + vegetables.
And she doesn’t fear fat.
Pascale‘s very easy and simple recipes to prepare are more satiating than the classic high carb meals.
To Naessens, the terms “cooking” and “eating” are synonyms for “enjoying;” food should not be about a calorie war, but rather the pleasure of balanced, conscious eating should be celebrated.
Her two conditions for acquiring new healthy eating habits?
The food you eat must be good and you must be satisfied after every meal.
You won’t need to count calories or restrict portion sizes.
Simply choose healthy food consciously and enjoy what you eat.
You will cook delicious food simply and easily.
You can drink wine.
You will be satisfied.
And you will enjoy your food with pleasure.
A few of her recipes include:
• Salmon with Olive-Pistachio Tapenade and Tomatoes
• Fish Wraps with Soy-Sesame Dipping Sauce
• Seared Scallops with Sea Beans
• Cajun Chicken Salad with Guacamole
• Roasted Rosemary Lamb, Tomatoes, and Carrots
