Last year I bought a recipe book called Happy Food by Niklas Ekstedt.
“Writing this book changed Niklas and Henrik’s lives, and it could soon change yours too. In writing HAPPY FOOD they re-evaluated everything that they had learned about food and stepped beyond the conversation around gut health to look at how the food we eat affects our brains and mental health, too.
With so much going on in our daily lives, it’s often much easier to grab fast food than cook a meal at home, and as a result so many of us our suffering both physically and mentally. Within these pages Niklas and Henrik look at how we can get what we need on a deep and nourishing level.
You won’t find a more interesting and hands-on book about this subject. The unbeatable combination of Ekstedt’s recipes and kitchen know-how with Ennart’s research and flowing narrative, along with beautiful pictures and impeccable Nordic cooking, makes this book a must-have. HAPPY FOOD brings Hygge and lagom into your kitchen, allowing everyone the chance to live and eat like the Scandinavians.
With its practical and inspiring advice, HAPPY FOOD will be your companion in everyday life, both in and out of the kitchen. Ennart and Ekstedt elegantly navigate between the “Early Bird” health-shot and the anti-inflammatory burger all the way to super-beetroot juice. It’s all about good food, and how the right meal can change your life.“
After playing tennis this evening, I will be enjoying some Happy Food !
