The Secret Language of Dogs

Victoria Stilwell
Authors:
Victoria Stilwell

Recent studies into the minds of canines show that they have a rich social intelligence and a physical and vocal language as complex and subtle as our own. The Secret Language of Dogs is a guide to understanding your dog, communicating effectively, strengthening your bond, and helping them to learn in the most effective way possible so they feel confident navigating the human world with success. Along the way, you'll learn the answers to questions such as:-What do different tail wags mean?-What does being right-pawed say about my dog's personality?-How can I tell the difference between boredom barking and warning barking?-What does it mean when my dog spins around, arches his back, or gives me the whale eye?-Do dogs feel guilt?-How do dogs perceive human faces?-Why do some scientists think dogs' emotional experience is even greater than ours?Filled with adorable full-colour photographs and instructive illustrations, this insightful 'dog decoder' will soon make you dog's best friend.

The Midlife Kitchen

Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice
Authors:
Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice

Are you at a point in your life where health is becoming more of a priority? Are you confused by ever-changing headlines that contrive to make the simple act of eating a peril rather than a pleasure? The Midlife Kitchen has the answers.Midlife is not a time to be concerned with food fads and foibles, but rather a glorious opportunity to wrest back control of your eating in the interests of health, happiness and a long life. Taste must certainly come first, but with health firmly snapping at its heels, underpinned by well-established nutritional common sense. Busy lives require simple, sustaining recipes that incorporate health-giving ingredients without too much fanfare or fuss. This book is not about 'clean-eating' or super foods, detoxing or restriction. Instead, it is about building up a balanced and diverse diet, with less sugar, better fat and good carbs. Alongside each recipe is the Midlife Kitchen emblem, the star anise. With each of the eight seeds representing a specific Midlife Health category - such as Hormone Harmony; Mind, Memory, Mood; or Heart Health - authors Sam and Mimi are able to provide simple nutritional information. Health tips explain the benefits of certain ingredients, while 'Why We Love It' sections explore the advantages of cooking each dish. Midlife Must-Haves show how to create homemade essentials such as Midlife Grown-up Granola, Midlife Power Porridge and Midlife Sweetener. From Seared Sirloin on Pan-Roasted Veg to The Mother of All Greek Salads, Best Lunch Wrap Ever to Three Fire Ginger Cake, the recipes in this book come together to create a vibrant menu bursting with mouth-watering flavours.
