Amelia Freer, the nutritionist behind Sam Smith’s incredible weight loss, is back with a brand new book of her favorite healthy recipes – including one from longtime client Boy George.

“It contains recipes to cover you in every circumstance – from big dinner parties to rustling up something when you’re on the go, to ways to embrace healthy fats or improve digestive health,” Freer tells PEOPLE of her new book Cook. Nourish. Glow.

Wow. I had all these ingredients on hand, and it sounded intriguing, so I just made this as an afternoon snack. It was so delicious! I recommend this as an easy way to ease yourself into eating more healthily. Absolutely yummy!

I thought the combination of ingredients sounded revolting, but I decided to try it out of sheer curiosity (and a stringent diet necessitating low calorie fare). This soup is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted! Somehow, it all combines to make magic (I used a yellow apple, which is what I had on hand). Incredible.
