Why I wrote this book – Catherine’s answer

“I’ve written this book because I wanted to help people understand the ins and outs of nutrition better so they can select the healthier options when they’re shopping – without making it a chore.

“We live in a world where modern life ‘conspires’ to make you fat. Junk food is widely available (think of all those vending machines and petrol stations) and cheap, yet it’s packed with all the things we shouldn’t be eating like refined carbs, trans fats, saturated fat, sugar and salt. My aim is to give alternatives that are healthy, quick and taste good. “
