In The Kitchen Prescription, gastroenterologist Dr Saliha Mahmood Ahmed draws on her love of good food and her expertise in gut health to create 101 recipes that are easy to make, incredibly delicious to eat and will effortlessly keep your gut and digestion in tip-top condition.

These are family-friendly dishes made for food lovers that are cost effective, diverse and backed by credible scientific advice. Gut-friendly breakfasts, immune-boosting lunches, quick family suppers and a host of simple, mostly plant-based dishes make up this colourful collection of recipes.

I'm Saliha's biggest fan. I love cooking her recipes, learning as I go about the intricate power of our glorious guts. Saliha always keeps it simple. Cook with joy, variety, abundance and cook for you and for others. Her work in the kitchen, in the hospital, in NHS canteens and in the wider community is to be hugely admired!
