How to Eat Happy!


Kitchen pioneer Melissa Hemsley – one of our Head Talks ambassadors – has published a wonderful new book, called Eat Happy: 30 Minute Feelgood Food.

Central to Melissa’s philosophy is that food should be comforting, with bold flavours and clever ways to use up leftovers, and should be healthily indulgent. Eat Happy is a book about being kind to yourself, and eating inventive yet simple food, packed full of vegetables and nutrients, and using easy-to-find supermarket ingredients.

Melissa has kindly shared three recipes with the Head Talks community, which will keep you full all day. Click below for the recipes for:
