Our Symprove shelf-fillers

With #GUTWEEK2015 highlighting the connection between our gut and our health, here at Symprove we thought it might be worth sharing our reading matter with you …

Four well-thumbed books, we refer to time and time again, are:

Follow Your Gut: the enormous impact of tiny microbes by Rob Knight

The Drugs Don’t Work by Professor Dame Sally C Davies

Brain Maker by Dr David Perlmutter

Missing Microbes by Professor Martin Blaser * currently on loan

We have this week received two new additions to our library, which we are very much looking forward to getting stuck into

Gut by Guilia Enders

10% Human, How your Body’s Microbes hold the key to Health and Happiness by Alanna Collen

And finally we have come across two cracking recipe books which we know you are all loving also, and one nutritional bible, which we refer to time and time again. These three books keep us busy, as we now have a Friday healthy lunch day – with someone cooking a healthy meal from these books for the department, hopefully every day will be a healthy lunch day soon; there are more than enough recipes to keep us going …

Deliciously Ella by Ella Woodward * currently on loan

Get the Glow by Madeleine Shaw

Eat. Nourish. Glow by Amelia Freer

We do hope you enjoy our library, and any recommendations for further reading much appreciated and always welcome (the same for your favourite recipe books of course).
