01:10 my book eat like you give a fork the
01:12 real dish on eating to thrive it's
01:13 really about simplicity and elevating
01:16 ingredients rather than masking them so
01:18 you're starting with the good stuff and
01:20 you don't have to you know use heavy
01:23 sauces or things like that it's really
01:25 simple preparation that everybody can do

01:37 um i've got a little avocado rose those
01:39 healthy fats are good for your heart as

02:01 wild caught cod dish and we've cooked it
02:04 in parchment paper this helps with the
02:07 cleanup so you don't have to make a
02:08 bunch of pans dirty you cook everything
02:11 in the parchment paper you just twist
02:14 the sides and everything cooks up in
02:16 here and what's gorgeous is when you
02:18 open it it lets out this beautiful steam
02:22 and i've got my cod layered with some
02:25 roasted brussels sprouts some leeks
02:28 which are also great for your heart
