In this special, 5:2 food and health writer Kate Harrison talks about going green – eating more veggies to superpower your fast days, your weight and your health.

To celebrate the publication of her new book, 5:2 Veggie and Vegan, Kate talks about her own history as a vegetarian since her teens, and her tips on how to max out the plant content of your diet to keep you, and your friendly bacteria, in great shape.

Plus she talks about how she develops recipes and why ‘eating the rainbow’ is the opposite of woo-woo- not to mention her loathing of the idea of ‘clean eating.’
