A celebrity chef who claimed to have invented the ‘world’s healthiest meal’ has died of a heart attack, aged 45.
Gurpareet Bains, whose fans included Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow, penned several superfood cookbooks. The co-founder of Vedge Snacks, who lived in Enfield, London, was hospitalised following a heart attack last Thursday, his management have confirmed.
Gurpareet’s interest in healthy eating came to him after watching his own weight creep up, at one stage hitting more than 17st on the scales.
In an interview with the Telegraph, he said: ‘I loved Indian food but thought a healthy version would mean dry naan and a boiled curry, which didn’t appeal.
‘There was a lot of talk about superfoods and antioxidants, and I thought, surely if we add spices to the superfoods they will become more super?’
