The Seaweed Cookbook

Aster
Authors:
Aster

While seaweed remains a core culinary ingredient in Asia, these traditions are enjoying a resurgence across the world, from California to Cornwall, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.Seaweed is one of nature's healthiest foods. Rich in vitamin B12, it is particularly good for vegans as this vitamin is usually found in animal sources. It also contains iodine, which helps promote a healthy metabolism.A little seaweed goes a long way and so it is perfect as a seasoning, whether in salt or infused in oils and dressings. It can be used to flavour both sweet and savoury, from broths, salads and stews to scones, shortbread, chocolate and granola. And because it is so good for our skin, there will also be recipes for body scrubs, seaweed soaks and masks.

Pilates for Weight Loss

Lynne Robinson
Authors:
Lynne Robinson

A 2006 study stated that 'Fat loss comes from burning sufficient number of calories. While cardio exercise tends to be an efficient calorie burner, Pilates appears to possess the potential to burn enough calories if done regularly, over the long haul and properly.' (Medicine and Science). Pilates for Weight Loss is a pioneering regime that will put you back in control of your weight. Pilates will change your shape and help you to achieve a long, lean silhouette, while also controlling your weight. This is the first book to create a programme to emphasise these benefits. Burn calories, flatten your stomach and gain a more defined waist. This title helps improve your posture; learn better breathing techniques; gain greater flexibility and core stability; and control stress and boost energy levels.

Ikigai

Yukari Mitsuhashi
Authors:
Yukari Mitsuhashi

Ikigai is a traditional Japanese concept that embodies happiness in living. It is, essentially, the reason that you get up in the morning. This book is about finding your ikigai - identifying your purpose or passion and using this knowledge to achieve greater happiness in your life. Your ikigai doesn't have to be some grand ambition or highly noble life's purpose - it can be something simple and humble, like tending your garden or walking your dog.Having grown up in Japan, Yukari Mitsuhashi understands first hand what ikigai means to Japanese people. Now living in Los Angeles, she has written this book to introduce the traditional concept to a new audience. This is not a 'one size fits all' book. Instead, Ikigai encourages you to look at the details of your life and appreciate the everyday moments as you learn to identify your own personal ikigai. The book includes case studies from a range of people sharing their ikigai, from athletes to writers and business people.With its refreshingly simple philosophy and liberating concepts, this beautifully presented book will be a guide you will return to again and again.

The Sunday Times Food Book Of The Year'A masterpiece' - Bee Wilson, The Sunday TimesAs featured on BBC Radio 4 The Food Programme 'Books of the Year 2018''This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. I couldn't love anyone who didn't love this book.' - Nigella LawsonShortlisted for the Irish Book Awards - Eurospar Cookbook of the year '...her best yet...superb menus evoking place and occasion with consummate elegance' - Financial Times'The recipes are superb but, above all, Diana writes like a dream' - Daily Mail 'Any book from Diana Henry is a joy and this canny collection of menus and stories is no exception' - delicious (As featured in delicious. magazine Top 10 Food Books of 2018)When Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper) in which she wrote up the meals she wanted to cook. She kept this book for years. Putting a menu together is still her favourite part of cooking. Menus aren't just groups of dishes that have to work on a practical level (meals that cooks can manage), they also have to work as a succession of flavours. But what is perhaps most special about them is the way they can create very different moods - menus can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They are a way of visiting places you've never seen, revisiting places you love and celebrating particular seasons.How to Eat a Peach contains many of Diana's favourite dishes in menus that will take you through the year and to different parts of the world.
