Eat Your Veg

More than a vegetarian cookbook, with vegetable recipes and feasts

By Arthur Potts Dawson

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Eat More Veg answers the call to eat more veg and less meat, offering everything you need to take your vegetables from accompaniment to centre stage.

The new paperback edition of the acclaimed vegetable cookbook Eat Your Veg.

This isn't a vegetarian cookbook. It's a way of life that celebrates vegetables and puts them at the centre of the plate. Eat More Veg presents a mix of classics, basics, simple food and show-off dishes that make the most of what's in season. Whether you receive organic food box deliveries, go to farmer's markets or raid what's on special offer at the supermarket, you'll be able to enjoy more veg, every day.

With suggestions for your store cupboard and advice on what to eat when, and an incredible variety of vegetables and recipes, we've got all the inspiration you'll need - from beetroot soup with cumin and coriander to butternut ravioli with brown butter, and from gratin dauphinoise to asparagus salad with peas, broad beans and mint - all arranged by vegetable in an easy-to-use format.

Mindfulness for Children

Uz Afzal
Authors:
Uz Afzal

This inspirational and timely guide is about how mindfulness helps children, why it's becoming more popular and how to do it. It combines practical exercises that children can complete alongside their parents/carers with a fun and engaging commentary on the theory and science behind the practice. Uz takes you through the day, from waking, eating, learning and appreciating to sleeping, including exercises for how to cope with exams, how to deal with the screen culture and what mindfulness practises you can do in holiday time. Together, this gives the reader an enjoyable and accessible path into the practice of mindfulness for children. Many schools are not able to include mindfulness in their curricula and educators and parents alike are eager to have more guidance on how to support children. This current era of rising levels of child mental health, with the pressures in schools as well as the increasingly fast-paced, digitized and image-obsessed world is having a really negative effect. Mindfulness for Children is a positive and practical tool that will give children the skills to manage their feelings, increase their confidence and concentration levels as well as aiding their transition to secondary school. And it can help parents and caregivers, too, by promoting happiness and relieving stress.

Dominic Roskrow

What can we expect from the best whiskey producers in America today? Whiskey America showcases some of the most exciting new styles of whiskey and why they are so special. With fascinating interviews with some of the leading characters in the recent distilling revolution, this absorbing book relates the stories of how successful lawyers, doctors and city slickers made the life-changing decision to turn their backs on conventional careers to pursue the 'good life' of making spirits in the most far-flung outreaches of America. And thank goodness they did, because this new generation of distillers not only customized conventional whiskey styles but also invented new ones never seen before. Whiskey America investigates how best to enjoy the new whiskies - in cocktails, with food, mixed or straight - and looks forward to where these exciting American spirits are going next.

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.
