In an exclusive recipe extract from his latest book, Jamie Oliver shares some nutritionally fabulous recipes that are deliciously easy too.
“The ultimate promise in Everyday Super Food is that every recipe choice is a good choice,” says Jamie. “Quite simply, I wanted to celebrate delicious, nutritious, achievable meals that will help you cook your way to a healthier, happier, more productive life.
“By the time you read this, I will have reached my fortieth birthday. About 18 months ago, this upcoming milestone made me pause and look at life slightly differently. It’s taken me on a bit of a personal journey as far as my health is concerned. In order to give yourself the best chance, good personal healthy needs to be your upmost priority. So my philosophy in this book is to help you get it right on the food front, most of the time.
“I believe my job with this book was to go out, learn from some of the best health and nutrition experts, and travel to some of the healthiest places in the world, absorb as much info as possible, then express the most relevant stuff back to you. So that’s exactly what I’ve done, combined with 30 years of cooking in order to create these yummy recipes. Every recipe reflects the balanced plate philosophy and appropriate portion control to ensure you’re getting the right amount of food.
“The book has become more of a natural diary me, and this has meant that I’ve also photographed all the food myself, as the recipes have often taken time to shape and perfect. What you see is a real reflection of the journey I’ve been on and I’m really proud of this book – a lot has gone into it.”

Jamie Oliver makes a healthy snack with this dleicious recipe for energy balls. "Medjool dates have the double benefit of being high in both fibre and chloride, a nutrient that helps our digestion, and we get a hit of copper from the pumpkin seeds," he says.
"Cumin and turmeric are great sources of iron, and teaming them with lemon juice like I?ve done here means our bodies can absorb that all-important iron really efficiently," says Jamie.
"Giving us two of our 5-a-day, this colourful salad also uses quinoa ? it?s a brilliant, tasty grain packed with both protein and fibre, and is also gluten-free," says Jamie.
