Whole: Bowl Food For Balance is all about healing your relationship with food. Food is not the enemy and neither is your body.
Taking the time to get to know your body, treating it with respect and nourishing it with real fresh food is the single most important thing you can do for yourself. Eating mindfully, cutting out processed foods and embracing the foods that fuel you and leave you feeling energised are all part of the journey to finding happiness with food.
The nearly 90 recipes included in this book are packed with nourishment, providing healthy, balanced and easy meals in a bowl. Many of the recipes are vegan or vegetarian, or can easily be adapted to suit either lifestyle choice. But there is plenty for the meat-eater too, with the added bonus that not only does the food look inviting and uplifting for the soul, it’s good for your body too. There are also snippets of information about some of the ingredients to inform your food choices and why eating fresh, whole foods will benefit you.
Melissa Delport is a Cape Town-based food photographer and blogger who loves to travel. Her food career started when she entered a cooking competition in South Africa. Her love of food was born while learning to cook at her mother’s and grandmother’s knees. After years as a fad dieter, Melissa discovered the path to health and wellbeing. Linking this directly to food and working with health coach Nikita Stallbom, Melissa’s new mindset of mindful consumption was integrated into her food philosophy. Learning to release fear around mealtimes, coupled with her knowledge of food and a desire to share this way of eating, the concept of Whole: Bowl Food For Balance was born, Melissa’s first cookbook.
Braaisnoek op die kole, swartmossels met ‘n lekker brosbrood, ontbeende gevulde skaapkop, sampioenrisotto, nastergalkaaskoek, beesstertsop met ’n Thaise kinkel en oondgebakte kwartels is net ‘n paar van die verruklike resepte uit Smeul – die resultaat van drie vroue, laatnagkuiers in die kombuis en hul gunsteling resepte.
Navorsing het getoon dat vir die eerste keer in die geskiedenis daar meer oorgewig mense is as mense wat nie genoeg kos het nie. Lekker Low Carb, deur die gerespekteerde dieetkundige Sally-Ann Creed van Die Kosrevolusie-faam, bevat gesonde, bekostigbare, praktiese resepte om ’n dieet van lae koolhidrate ’n leefstyl te maak.
Sy verduidelik wat so ’n tipe lewenstyl behels en hoe om graan, koolhidrate en suiker tot ’n minimum te beperk. Sy bepreek ook kwessies soos vesel en hoekom vroue sukkel om ’n dieet hoog in vet moeilik vind. Aan die hand van resepte vir ontbyt, kospakkies vir kinders, vingerkos, sop, gebak en selfs pizzas, hoof- en bygeregte, souse, snoephappies, koek en koekies, poeding en dranke is dit duidelik dat enigeen ’n gesonde selfgekookte ete daagliks vir ’n gesin kan voorsit om so werklik optimale gesondheid te geniet.
In geselstaal, wat dit maklik vir almal maak om te verstaan.

Real ale and other craft beers have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and as a result more people have been compelled to try making their own homebrew.
With a range of equipment and guidance now readily available, home-brewing is more accessible than ever. However, while the actual concept behind making beer is simple – add water to barley to create and extract sugar, add hops while boiling, cool, then feed to yeast – the execution can at times seem complex and confusing. The key to bridging the gap between brewing in theory and practice is being able to spot the signs of trouble and know how to respond.
Whether the reader is a first-timer trying out a new hobby or an old hand looking to produce a finely crafted artisan ale, The Home-brewer’s Problem Solver provides the information needed to nip problems in the bud and to avoid them in the fi rst place. It contains 100 common home-brew snags and setbacks, spelling out the underlying causes and offering practical solutions. Each key stage of the brewing process is tackled with accompanying photographs, practical tips and useful insights.
Contents: The basics, Ingredients, Mashing/steeping, Boiling, Fermentation, Packaging, Equipment, Finished beer.
