The Midlife Kitchen has been written with nutritional common sense. The recipes use a broad range of healthy ingredients to ensure that you’re eating well without making any major sacrifices. Rather than focusing on ‘super’ foods or diet restriction, The Midlife Kitchen is about enjoying a balanced and varied diet with less sugar, better fats and good carbs.

Many women start to prioritise their health at midlife or later. Adjusting your diet is an important step to take and one that can have a real impact on quality of life. The Midlife Kitchen has been designed to inspire these choices, and has even rated their recipes on 8 important factors for midlife health; including Digestive Health, Hormone Harmony and Mind, Memory & Mood. Tailor your meals to your own needs and enjoy new flavour combinations while you’re at it.
