The Beauty Chef. Beauty is more than skin-deep; it comes from within – from the gut, to be precise. In The Beauty Chef, Carla Oates, founder of the natural beauty company of the same name, combines the joy of cooking with the science of nutrition, offering you radiant skin and robust health. More than 150 delicious and nutritious recipes that are gluten-free and mostly dairy-free will feed both your skin and your gut. Glamorous it may not be, but well-balanced gut bacteria can be the answer to glowing health and beauty. With every meal you eat, be it breakfast, dinner or a tempting dessert, you will feel and look better inside and out.
