BOOK REVIEW: ‘Heart Disease’ by Dale Pinnock, The Medicinal Chef

‘Heart Disease’ by Dale Pinnock, The Medicinal Chef – book review


Do you have high blood pressure, angina or other forms of heart disease? Have you recently suffered a stroke or heart attack? Do you have a family history of heart disease? If so, then this new book could be a good buy as it offers heart healthy recipes for everyday meals.

The Medicinal Chef Dale Pinnock returns with a new book called ‘Heart Disease’ to help people with the prevention and management of heart disease by eating their way to a better health.


He says that despite living in a modern society cardiovascular disease is on the rise, and in terms of health, ‘we are victims of our own ‘progress’.


His insightful publication looks at the role of nutrition and the key ingredients to maintaining a healthy heart, and explains to readers that sufferers or those at risk of heart disease can be in the driving seat.


Pinnock guides his readers through the mechanics of the cardiovascular system and explains how diet and lifestyle can have a great impact on developing heart disease.


 The author takes a no-nonsense approach and the result is an engaging, clear and informative guide packed with plenty of tempting easy to follow recipes for breakfast, lunch and (fancy and quick) dinners that incorporate powerful super-nutrients into a diet.


He believes that sufferers should not deprive themselves of delicious food but embrace them with tastier alternatives which are beneficial to the human heart.  


Take for example his heart healthy twist on the classic chilli – Mixed Bean Chilli with Baked Sweet Potato – a low GI meal which swaps regular potatoes with a version packed with beta carotene and the flavoursome Mediterranean Brown Rice Risotto which uses easily accessible ingredients.


‘Heart Disease’ is part of a wider series of books written by the Medicinal Chef: ‘Digestion’, ‘Diabetes’ and ‘Anxiety & Depression’.


Pinnock is the pre-eminent voice in eating for good health. He has degrees in Nutrition and Herbal Medicine and a Masters in Nutritional Medicine. He has also worked as a chef and know the importance of using affordable, accessible ingredients in his recipes.


‘Heart Disease’ by Dale Pinnock, the Medicinal Chef (143pg hardback) is published by Quadrille Publishing, £14.99. Also available from specialist health food stores.
