Authors:
Nadia Sawalha

We've all been there: you start a diet with the best of intentions, but, after a busy day at work or a nightmare journey home, the thought of spending an age chopping vegetables for a salad or gloomily sipping a flavourless soup is just too much. Before you know it, you're reaching for the frozen pizza or dialling the number of your favourite takeaway. That's where Nadia comes in. In Greedy Girl's Diet, she proved that healthy food doesn't have to be dull and that you can still have treats without overindulging. Now she's back, with a host of family-friendly, healthy and nutritious recipes (including her famous desserts!) that can be prepared and on the table in no time. Greedy Girl's Diet: Second Helpings is full of delicious, diet-friendly dishes, with one chapter specialising in ten-minute meals, another for half-hour dinners - perfect for a weeknight - and a whole host of lunchbox suggestions. There's a section on guilt-free 'junk' food, a guide to making takeaway-style dishes without the calories, and even an emergency three-day detox for when you just have to fit into that dress.

Annie Rigg, Annie Rigg

Soft, delicately flavoured nougat bars, topped with vanilla caramel and covered in chocolate are just big enough for three or four (big) bites and far surpass the shop-bought equivalent. Crisp butterscotch popcorn with just a hint of sea salt is the perfect adult indulgence, a box of Praline Hearts makes a delightful Valentine's Day gift and chocolate dipped honeycomb is tailor-made for Father's Day. The recipes come with failsafe instructions that will ensure success every time, even for novice confectioners, plus creative packaging ideas, making this the ideal book whether you want an imaginative present for someone special or merely to treat yourself.
