Dr Gemma is one of the few brave voices in the medical community who is experienced, courageous and confident enough to talk openly about food and its significance in preventing disease to save lives. What you choose to put on your plate is one of the most important health interventions and more plants is certainly the message we all need to hear. This book is a fantastic resource for people looking to improve their wellbeing and I'm personally inspired by Gemma's resilience and effort.
