How often do you find yourself grumpy or angry because you are starving? How much do you love going out to dinner, lunch or breakfast? How good is the feeling when your big plate of food arrives in front of you with the smell going straight into your nostrils? Sound familiar?


It is through this passion and love for food that we get a true rush of happiness thanks to the relationship with our hormones. By eating, you create a sense of enjoyment and this is well supported by the release of endorphins and serotonin from your glands. In my opinion some of the best times of the day revolve around our food.


Widely-acclaimed cook, certified physical trainer, and a dynamic new voice on health and fitness issues, Dan Churchill rose to fame in 2013 when, at the age of 23, he gained international attention and legions of fans after appearing on MasterChef Australia which aired in over 90 countries.


His recipes have since been featured in publications like Men’s Health, Women’s Fitness, and on websites like PopSugar and Lululemon’s blog. Churchill has a bachelor’s degree in Sport and Exercise Management, and a master’s in Exercise Science (Strength & Conditioning). He speaks on a number of food and health-related topics and consults for athletes and sports teams worldwide to help optimize their performance through nutrition.


My View:

Beautifully designed (I particularly love that the book has a “page marker” ribbon- so useful), fresh, exciting recipes that are beautifully and realistically photographed and when I trialled some of these recipes they actually looked as good as those in the book and tasted fantastic. These are healthy recipes that taste so good you won’t even think about them being good for you, that are easy to make, with most of the ingredients stocked in your pantry; you cannot go wrong with this recipe book, there is a recipe in this book that will appeal to all members of your family and some that will quickly become your family favourites.

    • Have done a few already Margot protein balls, pull apart lamb, strawberry and coconut muffins… – and have more luscious looking cook books to delve into – just been sitting reading through some today – they look so good I don’t know where to start .

  1. Really like cookbooks where they use ingredients you likely have in your pantry already – makes me more inclined to give something a go
