Fresh, nutritious, modern vegan food

With people becoming increasingly aware of the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet, vegan food has become more popular than ever, with 2016 declared 'The Year of Vegan' by PETA US. Many more 'part-time vegans' are turning to a vegan diet to broaden their food choices and improve their health.
The vegan way of eating is nothing new. But what is new, is how much more aware people are of the provinence of their food and how accessible it is to not only eliminate meat from your diet, but also dairy and eggs.
This new cookbook offers long-time vegans and those just starting out, fresh recipe ideas using 'new' alternative ingredients readily available in most supermarkets. There are also recipes for making your own yoghurt, cheese, mayonnaise and ice-cream - all free of animal products.

More Veg, Less Meat

Rachel De Thample
Authors:
Rachel De Thample

We eat twice the amount of meat we need to and only half the amount of vegetables that we are supposed to. We're all aware that cutting down on meat and dairy would significantly help reduce greenhouse gases, and also improve our health, but the majority of us do not want to cut it out entirely. Rachel de Thample reveals how you can reverse that statistic and pack your meals full of fresh plant-based ingredients. In More Veg Less Meat Rachel shows how to make the most of meat by buying good quality produce and eating it sparingly, but also how to the most of every bit of meat. This could mean spinning out a roast to last the week, or using lesser known cuts in imaginative ways. With 150 delicious recipes, such as Beef Miso Ginger Soup, Mayan Gold Chilli, and Lamb Burger with Roast Aubergine and Pistachio Mayonnaise, even the most hardened carnivore can be convinced that eating less meat is a good thing. With quick and easy ideas for seasonal vegetable dishes, as well as each recipe meeting recommended protein needs, you'll be eating a better balance of meat, fruit and veg in no time.

Authors:
Lucy Whigham

Written by a specialist gut dietitian, Lucy Whigham, M Nutr Diet SRD, The Low-FODMAP Recipe Book can help you to take control of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), functional bowel disorder and digestive distress, and can also help those suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Coeliac Disease and functional symptoms following gastrointestinal surgery.

FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) are naturally occurring sugars that are found in a wide range of everyday foods. They are difficult to digest and cannot be completely absorbed by the body - instead they are fermented by bacteria in our gut, causing excessive wind, bloating, pain, abdominal distension, cramping, stomach gurglings, diarrhoea and frequent bowel motions. The low-FODMAP diet: Is the most successful diet for bringing relief to sufferers of IBS. Has been medically proven in rigorous clinical trials to help identify food intolerances and improve symptoms in up to 75 per cent of people with IBS. Is quickly becoming an essential treatment for people with a sensitive gut. Can help in the management of a wide range of stomach troubles and gastrointestinal discomfort. This book is an easy guide to why and how the low-FODMAP diet can help, and includes tables of what foods need to be avoided for the elimination phase and beyond. Empower yourself with the knowledge of exactly which foods cause you problems, putting you in the driving seat and letting you control your symptoms rather than have them control you.

Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice

As featured in The Times and The Daily Mail.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, Nurture Bircher to Three-ginger Fire Cake, the recipes in this book come together to create a vibrant menu bursting with mouth-watering flavours.
