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.

Kevin Braddock

An honest guide to depression and anxiety, from rock bottom to recovery, from someone who has been through it and come out the other side. Everything Begins with Asking for Help is a frank, insightful and thought-provoking book on mental health, drawing on the author's own experience of a severe mental breakdown and sharing the recovery tools he has developed in partnership with various medical professionals and mental health experts. Kevin shares his own story to give the book a vital human element, explaining how his fast-paced life in Berlin as a successful magazine journalist was brought to a sudden halt by a major depressive episode. In this dark time, Kevin reached out to friends for help, and it was that act - asking for help - that set him on the long road to recovery. Building on this narrative, Kevin leads the reader through the stages of asking for help, learning to listen, the physical, emotional and mental elements of recovery, and how to maintain stable mental health at home and at work. Written with warmth, honesty and compassion, this is is a valuable resource for anyone who needs help and doesn't know where to begin.

It's become the norm to remain solo until much later in life, given the average marriage ages of 35 (women) and 38 (men). Many of us are choosing never to marry at all.

Cue: single sorrow. Dating like it's a job. Spending half our lives waiting for somebody-we-fancy to text us back. Feeling haunted by the terms 'spinster' or 'confirmed bachelor.'Catherine Gray took a whole year off dating to find single satisfaction. She lifted the lid on the reasons behind the global single revolution, explored the bizarre ways cultures single-shame, detached from 'all the good ones are gone!' panic and debunked the myth that married people are much happier.Let's start the reverse brainwash, in order to locate - and luxuriate in - single happiness.
