Passionate about delicious cooking and wellness, Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley are the brains and beauty behind Hemsley + Hemsley – a name that has become synonymous with wellness warriors and the high-fashion crowd alike thanks to their regular contributions to British Vogue.
Utilising a simple, whole-foods approach, what we love most about the Hemsley sisters is their no-nonsense approach to food and eating which encourages taking it back to basics when it comes to how we choose to nourish ourselves.
Since their emergence on the healthy foodie scene, the Hemsley sisters have become renowned for their wholesome and delicious recipes and healthy eating principles that rebel against the low fat, calorie counting mentality so prevalent within the diet industry of today. Instead, they propagate a diet rich in natural sources of fats such as butter and coconut oil and good quality cuts of meat.
A food philosophy ten years in the making, their nutritional principles have been developed with a specific focus on digestive health – an aspect of overall wellbeing that the sisters cite as the key to a healthy body and mind.
In celebration of their first cookbook The Art Of Eating Well, on July 3rd we will be hosting an in-store event where you will have the opportunity to purchase their book and have it signed by both Hemsley’s on the night.
With a host of mouth-watering recipes created to reset your body and banish cravings for high sugar and processed foods, the Hemsley’s are adamant that the dishes featured are so tasty, it is easy to forget that the purpose is rooted in wellness and nourishment.
The Art Of Eating Well is a must-have kitchen bible for anyone interested in reaping the amazing benefits that adopting a healthy food philosophy can have on your health, not to mention your skin. Comprised of sections dedicated to breakfasts, main meals, sweet snacks, super-powered juices and smoothie’s alongside a host of information on cooking in advance, cooking with children and getting a head start on the week ahead, The Art Of Eating Well has all your bases covered.
First up on our to-make list is the succulent lamb meatballs with cauliflower tabbouleh, the colourful and grain-free Flower Power Pizza and the Caramelised Garlic Tart with Almond Crust – yum!
