The self-proclaimed “Queen of Fibre” is coming and she’s going to help you get an A+ on your next Colonoscopy, phew! On May 28th media personality, bestselling author, and professional home economist Mairlyn Smith is presenting her new fibre infused cookbook, Peace, Love & Fibre. This event includes an on-stage interview with local celebrity Julie Van Rosendaal, followed by an audience Q&A and book signing.
About Peace, Love & Fibre
In her newest cookbook, Mairlyn breaks down exactly what fibre is, and why it is such an important part of a healthy lifestyle. You'll learn how fibre positively affects your blood sugar levels and gut health, and how it reduces the risk of certain types of cancer. Then, Mairlyn will teach you exactly how to create a more balanced, fibre-rich diet, without going overboard. Moving into the recipes, you'll find a mouth-watering assortment of choices for every meal and occasion, with dishes such as Pumpkin Spice Griddle Cakes, Cheddar Cheese Mini Dinner Biscuits, Lentil & Wheat Berry Salad with Strawberries & Mint, Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork, Chicken & Chickpea Curry, and even desserts like Chocolate Fudge Cake!
“Mairlyn Smith’s hilarious approach to all foods nutritious and fibre-filled has made her a daytime television favourite. We live for her tasty recipes, her easy-to-digest prep advice, and, of course, her ability to never take herself too seriously.” —Tracy Moore, host of Cityline
