The Self-Care Cookbook
  • The Self-Care Cookbook

  • Fast, nutritious and super easy recipes and self-care tips to boost your energy, help you sleep and lift your mood.

    So many of us go about our busy, ‘always-on’ lives without fulfilling our most basic self-care need – eating wholesome, nourishing food. Yet without giving our body what it truly needs to fuel us through the day (and night), we get ill, feel low and have trouble sleeping. In this beautiful full-colour recipe book, Gemma Ogston introduces us to the concept of eating as the ultimate form of self-care and self-love. Drawing on decades of experience as a plant-based chef, and her own personal journey to becoming a mother and business owner, each recipe has been carefully crafted to be quick, easy and affordable (no more excuses!), but, most importantly, kind and nurturing to your body – and mind.

    With over 60 delicious recipes including cacao and cherry granola bowl to increase your 'feel good' endorphins, miso with seaweed and chickpea tofu to give your gut flora a super boost and pear crumble with vanilla cashew custard because YOU deserve it, The Self-Care Cookbook is for anyone who needs some extra TLC.
