The Self-Care Cookbook: Easy Healing Plant-Based Recipes

Who’s the author? A plant-based chef and mum of two with her own Brighton food brand, Gem’s Wholesome Kitchen, Gemma Ogston has amassed a solid fan base of food lovers who love her nourishing, flavour-packed Nourish Packages to takeaway. Gemma started her catering business as a ‘vegan takeaway’ from her Barcelona apartment, when she’d cook up a plant-based meal, posting it on Facebook and waiting for the orders to roll in – word spread and soon her business flourished. The rest is history!

What’s it about? A recipe and self-care book rolled into one, this is the first of its kind. With over 60 delicious recipes including fiery bean stew for the days we feel we need some comforting, calming miso pasta to give your gut a boost and indulgent chocolate pud for those days you need a treat. This is a recipe book for anyone who feels they need some good mood food to replenish and restore – the type of food that takes away guilt and makes you feel good inside and out.

Perfect for: Cooks who believe in the power of food to nourish body, mind and soul, anyone seeking to get more veg-centric, wholesome meals into their diet, and any vegan food-lovers who want to cook more wholesome food from scratch.
