Madeleine’s food philosophy is all about enlivening the hottest, happiest and healthiest you. It’s about keeping things simple and delicious so you don’t feel bored or deprived. She believes that with every bit of food we eat, we are influencing how we look, feel and think. ” I think healthy eating should be a way of life, not just a fad or phase.” Madeleine Shaw
