The Foodie Teen

Who’s the author? Teen blogger, healthy enthusiast and photographer Alessandra Peters. The young foodie, who runs the award-winning blog The Foodie Teen, is passionate about helping young people embrace a healthy, natural, unprocessed diet with her delicious and exciting recipes.

What’s it about? In The Foodie Teen you will find over 100 recipes for naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and nutrient rich dishes, including after-school snacks and 'dishes to get out of bed for'. In her quest to get teenagers (and everyone else) to embrace a healthy lifestyle, Alessandra's book also offers yoga sequences, 5-minute meditations and advice on how to deal with stress and anxiety.

Recipes we love: Decadent Coconut Hot Chocolate, Asparagus & Tomato Frittata Slice, Pesto Eggs with Avocado and Garlic-Lemon Spinach, Salted Caramel Brownie Stacks, Oven-Baked Meatballs with Courgette Noodles

Good book for: Anyone suffering from food allergies or those wanting to enjoy a healthier diet. This book is especially good for young people wanting to learn new recipes that will not only taste delicious but will help make them feel incredible too.

You’ll like it if: You're fed up of feeling exhausted and want a diet that will make you spring out of bed in the morning.
