By Angelique Panagos

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

Balance your hormones and transform your life.

'The wellness world's new holy grail is hormone harmony' - ES Magazine

'Angelique has created a beautifully presented and easy to use guide that inspires everyone to look at their food in a new light. I love the recipes, the beautiful illustrations and how lifestyle is a key part of her message. I particularly like her emphasis on women's health and I believe this could be useful for a lot of people.' - Dr Rupy Aujla, author of The Doctor's Kitchen

'I can't function without coffee'
'I need my daily fix of chocolate'
'I look puffy and retain fluid easily
'I'm hungrier than I used to be but never feel satisfied'
'I struggle to lose weight no matter what I try'

Sound familiar?

These are complaints that nutritionist Angelique Panagos hears every day. Time and time again, they're caused by the same thing - hormonal imbalance.

The Balance Plan explains how to tune in to your hormones and make the changes necessary to bring them into balance. Take the six steps, follow the 28-day plan and transform your life!

- Sleep better
- Enhance digestion
- Lose weight
- Reduce stress
- Elevate energy levels
- Feel happier

'The Balance Plan is an inspired book by my friend Angelique Panagos. It effortlessly combines recipes that help support female hormonal health, prefaced by bite-sized chunks of the science and concepts that underpin them. With easy to create personal plans, I would heartily recommend this to any woman who wants to improve her wellbeing through a simple yet creative approach to food as medicine.' - Dr Ayan Panja

'The Balance Plan is a pertinent piece of health literature. In modern medicine, we've treated hormone problems as a black or white issue. Disease or healthy. In reality, hormones are our body's way of sending intricate messages of our environment and helping us to react and be as responsive to what is happening around us. Hormones cycles are happening everyday and your diet, lifestyle, and other habits all influence this. Thank you Angelique for this enlightening journey through our body!' - Dr. Steven Lin

'The Balance Plan is a beautiful approach to improving hormonal health, grounded in the perfect synergy of personal journey, clinical experience and excellent health advice. The understanding that your diet, environment and lifestyle powerfully affects your hormonal balance and reproductive health will empower you with the knowledge and wisdom you need on your own journey to better health and wellness.' - Benjamin I. Brown, ND

Biographical Notes

Angelique Panagos is a writer, total foodie and health crusader with an immense passion for the healing power of food.

Her journey into nutrition and hormonal health has been one of self-sabotage, healing and discovery. In her early 20s, at her heaviest weight, Angelique was determined to take radical control of her body - obsessive exercise and curbed eating led to anorexia and bulimia.

Finally, at age 27, she began taking small, consistent steps to changing her beliefs around food, and to educate herself about nutrition and hormonal balance. Angelique learned not only how stress and poor nutrition wreak havoc on our hormones, but also how vital gut health and proper digestion are to our overall wellbeing. Now a nutrional therapist with her own successful West End practice, Angelique features in ITV's Sugar Free Farm and has contributed to I Quit Sugar with Sarah Wilson and publications such as Women's Health, InStyle and Rude Health.

Angelique completed her nutritional therapy training at the renowned Institute of Optimum Nutrition in London. She is registered and regulated by The British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and is a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). In addition, Angelique is proud to be an Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) AFMCPT UK graduate.

Skinny Pasta

Julia Azzarello
Authors:
Julia Azzarello

Although pasta is often on the 'avoid' list of a diet, this needn't be the case as it's the accompanying sauces and topping that pile on the calories, and the pounds. The recipes in Skinny Pasta prove otherwise - all are small on calories, but big on nourishing nutrients, full of flavour and decent portions.Featuring a mix of timeless classics and contemporary interpretations, the recipes focus on fresh, healthy and nutritious ingredients, plus many are vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and dairy-free. 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. With nutritional info for every recipe, each dish is 500 or less calories per portion.

Eat It Anyway

Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison
Authors:
Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison

'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.
