Many people want to lose weight and are looking for the easiest way to do so. When it comes to weight-loss programmes, one of the excuses most frequently heard by dieticians is ‘I don’t know how to prepare the right meals’. This book provides a solution to that.
In A Slimmer You Cookbook, the author presents recipes for 1000 kJ meals to suit individual preferences, family circumstances and budgets. It demonstrates that by monitoring your portions, you can cook for a family, eat healthily, and enjoy a variety of foods, all while achieving your goal of losing weight. But eating correctly is not just about following a recipe or meal plan; we need to understand how what we eat affects our health. The introduction includes topics such as BMI and cholesterol, how to balance daily food intake with physical activity levels, the role of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in our diet, making the most of ‘free’ vegetables, and tips on how to interpret food labels.

Izelle Hoffman is on a mission to change perceptions about food and to increase awareness of the benefits of eating the right foods and choosing a life of health and wellness. Did you know, for instance, that the humble sweet potato contains anti-inflammatory properties and regulates blood sugar levels? And that raw honey isn’t simply a sweetener – it has antifungal and antiviral properties as well?
In Mindful Eating, Izelle encourages you to rethink what you put in your body in a fun, healthy way, and demonstrates that living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean that your diet needs to be boring and restricted, especially where vegetables are concerned. By sharing her recipes for energising breakfasts, quick weekday meals, sweet baked goodies, classics with a healthy (Izelle-approved) twist and family favourites, among others, Izelle aims to help you take back control of your wellbeing.
Packed with delicious, nutritious and deceptively simple recipes, Mindful Eating is more than a cookbook; it is an inspirational and motivational guide to leading a healthy lifestyle through good eating.

Delicious pasta recipes each under 500 calories per portion, from classic traditional dishes to contemporary twists, including vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options.
Pasta is one the easiest to make and most joyful to eat meals; always in the cupboard, ideal to turn to in a pinch and the ultimate comfort food. However, a fear of carbs has placed pasta firmly on the no-go list of 'bad' foods for many people - a huge mistake and wholly unnecessary! If you're on the hunt for a balanced, nutritious meal that can please a crowd as easily as provide a quick supper for one, pasta is a great choice. It's often the accompanying sauces and toppings that pile on the calories in a pasta dish, so here Julia Azzarello proves otherwise - all recipes are small on calories, big on nourishing ingredients and full of flavour.
Focusing on fresh, healthy ingredients in delicious combinations, Skinny Pasta also has many vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options. From Vermicelli with Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Feta and Mafaldine with Romanesco Sauce, to tasty salads such as Greek Rotini and soups Butter Bean, Chorizo & Spinach with Pappardelle, as well as quick and easy mains including Orecchiette with Cime Di Rapa & Chilli, Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n' Cheese, there's a pasta for every occasion.
If you have a little extra time on your hands then make your own basic pasta dough, gluten-free gnocchi, fresh pesto or marinara sauce, or simply add shop bought pasta, and indulge in a delicious and nutritious treat.
People with gluten intolerance or coeliac (celiac) disease often struggle to find suitable recipes. Gluten-free ingredients can be expensive, making it a challenge to prepare family meals that don’t break the budget. One of the keys to successful gluten-free cooking is knowing which flour will give the best result. In this book, the various types of flours are discussed and a homemade gluten-free flour mix that forms the basis of many recipes in the book is included.
The South African Gluten-free Cookbook presents 100 tried-and-tested recipes that are perfect for everyday meals, as well as for entertaining. Baking and desserts receive special attention, but there are also recipes for great-tasting breads, quiches, noodles and pasta dishes that make use of a variety of gluten-free flours and flour substitutes.
In keeping with current trends, caulifl ower, quinoa and kale feature alongside salmon, pesto and Asian-style chicken, while traditional cooking holds its own with pumpkin fritters, waffles, mince pies and Yorkshire pudding.
