After hearing the internet rave about Ella Woodward’s new book “Deliciously Ella“, I wanted to know what the hype was all about, so I picked it up along with some other blogger books when I got gifted an Amazon voucher the a couple of weeks ago. Deliciously Ella was published earlier this year and has been a huge success, reaching number 1 in various bestseller lists. You usually find it in the cookbook section of book stores, but to me it’s a more of a lifestyle and cookery book as it gives you so much more than just recipes.
Deliciously Ella is a great book, if you are looking to eat more healthy or introduce plant-based, dairy-free or gluten-free food into your every day diet. If you’re looking for juicy steaks and boozy cocktails, Deliciously Ella is probably not for you, but if you are after a non-preachy book that introduces you to the benefits of grains, seeds, legumes and more in a supportive and friendly way, Ella Woodward’s bestseller could become your new food bible.
Across 256 pages, the UK food-blogger shares her extensive knowledge about different ingredients and their health benefits and shows you how to create both nourishing and delicious recipes in just a couple of minutes. Deliciously Ella by Ella Woodward is a book full of beautifully photographed recipes that will not only inspire you to try something new, but also make you more conscious of what you eat on an every day basis.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love meat dishes and I will never ditch pasta or bread (at least I don’t intend to right now), but since reading Deliciously Ella over the last couple of weeks, I am more aware of the ingredients that we use and when thinking about the meals we’ll eat during the week, I am always looking for healthier alternatives or substitutes. Yes, I am not eating a completely plant-based, dairy-free or gluten-free diet, but I have made changes and any change, no matter how small will have awesome benefit – says Ella – and she must know!
