Planetary Health Diet

A diet that can avoid premature death and safeguard the Earth at the same time sounds too good to be true – but that’s exactly what experts are saying is possible with the ‘planetary health diet’.

It was the first story I ever wrote about food, and it begins with a chicken in a cloth bag hanging on the back of a kitchen chair. It was dark outside, and I was lying on the hall floor, looking at the chicken through the door, and looking at the rust in the door hinges, and wondering if I was ever going to get up,” explains Ella Risbridger, author of new cookbook Midnight Chicken (named after this very recipe).

Golden Berries

Golden berries might sound like a fruit made up by Roald Dahl, but trust us – they’re a real thing and actually pretty great.

The delicate orange berry has many names, including Peruvian groundcherry, physalis or Cape gooseberry, but for now we’ll just stick to the much easier golden berry. The French actually refer to it as ‘amour en cage’ which means ‘love in a cage’ – a rather romantic way to describe the brown husk you find the berries in.

January is all about trying new things, so now could be a good time to add this exotic fruit to your shopping list.
