John Platter returns! With the same simple approach to wine which made him a household name in South Africa, he tells the stories of wines and winemakers; taste the wines himself; writes about them in language everyone can understand. Todayís winelands are another country. Young revolutionaries are leading a charge. Old campaigners are rising to the challenge. New areas, new varieties are being explored, ancient vineyards revived. Never has the wine scene been so exciting, so ready for this new book by an old hand. A writer who has also grown and made wine himself. This is not another Platter wine guide. It is not a list of the Ďbestí wines blind-tasted and scored by a panel. It is no more, no less, than John Platterís purely personal picks of the wines he enjoys drinking. And why. It is completely different from any other wine book on the market. The stunning images are by photographer Clinton Friedman.
Few people would dispute the fact that there is a bewildering array of books available on the business of eating, fi tness and nutrition, many of them, unfortunately, with (hidden) vested interests in the food industry and singular theories. But every now and again a refreshing and ethical book based on sound, proven scientific principles comes onto the market which is more than just another trendy diet book.
Wholesome Nutrition For You is such a book. In it, nutritional therapist and exercise physiologist Ian Craig and his co-author, health food specialist and sports scientist Rachel Jesson, cover in detail the emotive topics of nutrition and health from a scientific perspective. They neatly unwrap all the jargon and pseudo-mystique, offering sensible, practical, economical everyday dietary approaches in a book that’s not only enjoyable and informative to read, but at the same time accessible to all South Africans who care about optimum health and the business of living life to the full.
And most importantly, Wholesome Nutrition For You stresses the fact that we are all different, and therefore a one-size-fits-all approach is counter productive to good health.
Weight Watchers knows the secrets for pairing good nutrition with great taste. From hearty breakfasts to flavorful dinners, discover new recipes that rely on lean meats, whole grains, and fresh produce.

The Real Meal Revolution was all about taking on the global obesity epidemic with a revolutionary approach to eating; it challenged ingrained beliefs, it sold (and still sells) in record-breaking numbers throughout South Africa, and it changed people’s lives.
With Raising Superheroes, the authors have now set out to revolutionise the way we feed our children. It’s time, they believe, to challenge the kids’ food industry and our old assumptions; it’s time to give our children the best nutrition possible, and the best start in life.
Raising Superheroes is not a Banting cookbook, and it doesn’t offer no-carb eating for kids. But – in advocating low-sugar, low-refined-carb, “real” food eating – it is the Real Meal Revolution’s next step towards changing the world.
