Dip your toe into the world of wellness, and it won't be too long before you encounter an avocado. And avocados are basically magic, right? The promise of food these days is enormous: it can make our skin glow, depression lift, energy abound, bodies strong, unblemished and fertile....our lives perfect? In Episode 9, we are at last getting into the specifics of nutritionally-sound (but still delicious!) eating with Stephanie Ridley and Dorothy Barrick of Fig & Bloom, a London-based nutritional therapy and recipe development service that truly embodies our dream destination of "where science meets lifestyle". Tune it to get the lowdown on the real power of food, looking at how much it can actually do for us (including possibly healing a nightclub-induced gunshot wound!), and the other factors that impact our health & wellbeing. We talk OG modelling culinary escapades, how homemade cookies might just be healthy, the potential transformation of gluten over the years, and the basics of how we can bring better health into our lives through recipes that are delicious, sexy and anything but basic.
And just so we're clear, though avocados get a bit of a hard time in this show, we do very much still enjoy them in the LB kitchen (and in restaurants where they are always perfectly ripe)! Check out Fig & Bloom's recipe page for an avocado cauliflower-toast recipe that looks especially yummy!
