Eat It Anyway

Fight the Food Fads, Beat Anxiety and Eat in Peace

By Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison

  • Paperback
  • £10.99

A game-changing narrative for anyone who has struggled to find a balance between healthy and happy, between empty and full. The principle is very simple: eat what you like and don't worry about it.

'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.' - Virginia Woolf.

The definition of 'healthy eating' has been chewed up, spat out and re-digested enough times to make Joe Public give up and seek out their nearest branch of McDonald's. Our mindless obsession with eating 'right' is such that we're now more concerned about what our Instagram followers think of a poorly lit picture of our dinner than we are of its effect on our own palate. Or, indeed, our happiness. We seem to be living in a time where we no longer eat with our hearts, emotions or heritage - but with what our waistlines (and followers) in mind.

Not Plant Based are on a mission to help you love food again. The principle is very simple: eat what you like and don't worry about it. It's a menu that's especially delicious, 'guilt-free' and requires a hell of a lot less money spent in health food shops. Throughout the book, Laura and Eve call on experts to debunk myths and provide a balanced exploration of our attitude towards food, with some delicious recipes thrown in along the way. They discuss their own experiences of eating disorders and offer personal tips and coping mechanisms to help rid you of anxiety linked to food. No one is saying healthy eating is bad; there is simply a lot of misleading information out there. More to the point, food is so much more in the grand scheme of life than health: it's family, friends, enjoyment and memories.

So go on, take a bite out of Eat It Anyway and learn to love your food all over again. It's SO mouth-wateringly good - we bet you'll be back for seconds.

Biographical Notes

Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison, both of whom are survivors of eating disorders, are the co-founders of Not Plant Based. Eve and Laura are both full-time journalists; Eve works at the Mail on Sunday and Laura is currently freelance, following a stint at The Press Association.

When Laura saw Eve being interviewed on the BBC Documentary Clean Eating's Dirty Secrets she decided to approach her about founding a new website, Not Plant Based. Their website covers a broad range of topics from nutritional advice to restaurant tips, physical fitness to mental health, and features interviews with a wide range of chefs, food writers and influencers, including Jay Rayner, Ella Mills and Adam Richman. Since being founded in September 2016, the blog has received coverage in The Times, the Telegraph, the Metro, the Evening Standard and the Mirror, among others, and it has already attracted a growing social media following.

From fresh and flavourful Vermicelli with Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Feta, and Mafaldine with Romanesco Sauce, to tasty salads such as Greek Rotini and soups including Butter Bean, Chorizo & Spinach with Pappardelle, as well as many quick and easy mains like Orecchiette with Cime Di Rapa & Chilli as well as the ever popular Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n' Cheese, there's a pasta dish for any occasion. And if you have a little more time on your hands then make your own basic pasta dough, gluten-free gnocchi, fresh pesto or marinara sauce, although all the recipes can be made with shop-bought pasta too.

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.

Thinking on My Feet

Kate Humble
Authors:
Kate Humble

** SHORTLISTED FOR THE EDWARD STANFORD TRAVEL WRITING AWARD - TRAVEL MEMOIR OF THE YEAR **A lovely, civilised and transporting read, that should have all of us stepping out to meet the world with fresh eyes.' - Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall'An enticing read that makes every walk Humble describes an adventure' - Ranulph Fiennes'A beautiful and magnificent book. A paean to a simple act. I defy you to read this book and not be inspired to walk, march or hike - and as a result live a better life more connected with nature and the world around you.' - Simon Reeve'A lovely book, fast-flowing yet at every turn giving the reader pause for thought. Kate Humble makes a delightful companion, her words full of sunshine and the raw pleasure she radiates as she encounters life in its many unexpected forms.' - Benedict Allen'I've discovered that going for a daily walk has become as essential to me feeling good for the rest of the day as that first cup of tea. But I would argue that all I am doing is responding to a natural need we all have. Humans have always been migrants, the physiological urge to be nomadic is deep-rooted in all of us and perhaps because of that our brains are stimulated by walking. I solve all sorts of problems, formulate ideas, work things out to that gentle rhythm of self-propelled movement.' - Kate HumbleThinking on My Feet tells the story of Kate's walking year - shining a light on the benefits of this simple activity. Kate's inspiring narrative not only records her walks (and runs) throughout a single year, but also charts her feelings and impressions throughout - capturing the perspectives that only a journey on foot allows - and shares the outcomes: a problem solved, a mood lifted, an idea or opportunity borne. As she explores the reasons why we walk, whether for creative energy, challenge and pleasure, or therapeutic benefits, Kate's reflections and insights will encourage, motivate and spur readers into action.Also featured are Kate's walks with others who have discovered the magical, soothing effect of putting one foot in front of the other - the artist who walks to find inspiration for his next painting; the man who takes people battling with addiction to climb mountains; the woman who walked every footpath in Wales (3,700 miles) when she discovered she had cancer.This book will inspire you to change your perspective by applying walking to your daily endeavours.*PRAISE FOR THINKING ON MY FEET *'A diary of sorts, charting a year of wonderful walks through the sun, wind and rain...each entry builds an image of her life in the great outdoors...it sounds idyllic to say the least.' - Sunday Express, S Magazine'These are 365 days of inspiration to get out and, sometimes literally, smell the flowers.' - Wanderlust Magazine'Humble's book about going for a walk can inspire absolutely anyone to make a change. Because all you have to do is step outside the front door.' - Waitrose Weekend'Witty, enlightening and often startlingly profound' - Country Walking Magazine
