Recipes From Joyous Health

Recipes From Joyous Health - House & Home

Blogger and nutritionist, Joy McCarthy, shares healthy recipes and tips for everyday living.

Toronto-based Joy McCarthy is a holistic nutritionist and blogger who advocates a "no diet" philosophy in her new cookbook, Joyous Health (2014, Penguin Canada). She puts forward the idea that food should be thought of as energy, and explains what foods are detrimental to good health, as opposed to counting calories. McCarthy describes how different dishes affect our bodies in both positive and negative ways, and shares examples of ways to get on a long-term healthy track. The majority of the recipes are in large part gluten- and dairy-free or vegetarian, and none contained refined sugar.

Many recipes included are alternatives to many standard meals with some unexpected twists. For an easy starter, try her Carrot Ginger Soup With Lemon Tahini Drizzle.
