Magdalena’s food is simple, nutritious and delicious. Her recipes celebrate traditional whole-foods that not only taste great, but also have great health benefits. It’s the way our grandparents (or great grandparents) used to eat, but with a little bit of indulgence too. It’s not about eliminating things such as sugar, dairy or carbs – although many recipes are free of these ingredients, but focusing more on what’s in season, tastes the best and then enjoying every moment of what we make! It’s about being more thoughtful or mindful about what we feed ourselves and our loved ones.
The recipes are divided into chapters based on the weather and the kinds of foods we crave in those environments – sushi, seafood and cooling sorbets in humid weather; soups, stews and warm desserts in cloudy/cool weather; and fresh salads and smoothies in sunny weather. Scattered between the recipes are spreads in living naturally as possible, covering everything from Magdalena’s food philosophy, to DIY beauty tips, simple decorating ideas, and natural cleaning products.
