Authors:
Phil Vickery

This is a collection of 70 mouthwatering gluten-free baking recipes that coeliacs have until now only been able to dream about.

But Phil Vickery's easy-to-follow instructions and practical advice, which draw on his Michelin-honed cooking skills, will have you whipping up melt-in-the-mouth Blueberry Cheescake, Chestnut and Roasted Onion Bread, Springy Scones and Squidgy Chocolate Brownies in an instant.

Authors:
Daniel Green, GREEN, DANIEL

The Paleo diet is all about returning to a healthier way of life - cutting out all the heavily processed, high fat, fast food that is an invention of recent times, and getting back to the fruits, veg, meat, seafood and nuts that our Paleolithic, hunter-gatherer ancestors thrived on when our species evolved. The digestive system we have now was shaped back then so is makes perfect sense to return to a similar diet - eating organic, omitting dairy and cooking with healthy fats and the right kind of carbs. This diet offers a welcome change in lifestyle that not only helps us lose weight but also enjoy many additional health benefits. The 100 recipes in this book cover breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. They are easy to follow, low in fat and high in flavour and will inspire and encourage you to cook and eat well so you not only lose weight but also look and feel fantastic.

The 2 Meal Day

Max Lowery
Authors:
Max Lowery

In The 2 Meal Day, Max Lowery introduces intermittent fasting - eat just two meals a day, either breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner - to burn fat and get fit fast. Rather than grazing on food all day or having to do complicated calorie calculations for two days of the 5:2 diet, simply eat two meals to lose weight, reduce hunger and feel more energised. Choose your two meals from Max's delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare recipes; start the day with Salmon Mini Frittatas or a Breakfast Burrito; Lunch on Thai Green Chicken Curry or Tuna Casserole or enjoy Creamy Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto or Sea Bass Sauce Vierge for Dinner. There are even healthier desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth without over-indulging - choose from Two-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse or Banana Pancakes. Max shows how to combine your 2-meal day with High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) - short duration and maximum effort exercises - and resistance workouts to help you drop fat and get fit quickly. So ditch the calorie-counting and the sugar highs and lows and enjoy two meals a day alongside Max's workouts for a leaner, fitter, healthier body.
