100 mouth-watering slow cooker recipes to help you eat healthily, lose weight and save time

For many people, the downside of eating healthily is the thought of having to spend hours preparing and cooking meals. This inspirational, full-colour recipe book shows how a slow cooker can enable you to have a very healthy, home-cooked diet with just a few minutes spent in the kitchen.

Author Dannii Martin reveals how her slow cooker changed her life. She ditched her fast food and ready meals habit and learned to cook from scratch, transforming herself from an unhealthy student into a healthy young mum and losing seven stone along the way.

The Healthy Slow Cooker includes 100 recipes, each with a colour photo, and indicates clearly how long each recipe will take to cook for easy planning. You'll find:

· Sustaining breakfasts such as Superfood Porridge, and Dark Chocolate and Cherry Granola
· Healthy meat, fish and vegetarian main meals, including Vietnamese-style Chicken with Pak Choi, Sesame Beef with Broccoli, Lemon and Chive Salmon and Leafy Green Madras
· Tasty side dishes such as Baba Ganoush and Salsa
· Desserts and drinks including Apple and Pear Crumble and Apple Chai Latte

The book also includes healthy options of some popular 'comfort' dishes, together with tips for choosing your slow cooker and how to get the most out of it.

The Part-time Vegan

Sarah Flower
Authors:
Sarah Flower

Many people are intrigued by the current trend for veganism. This book is for all those who want to 'have a go' - whether it's simply to improve their diet or lighten the load on the planet - but who don't have the time or the inclination to follow a vegan diet full time. There are numerous glossy vegan cookbooks (and authors) extolling the benefits of everything from making nut milks to replicating the taste of cheese. This book is different. The recipes in The Part-time Vegan are straightforward, feature readily available ingredients and are, of course, delicious, because they are based on the best simple, natural flavours that nature has to offer. As well as providing recipes for midweek and weekend breakfasts, lunches and main meals, the book covers why being a part-time vegan is a great approach to health - when we balance vegan recipes with high-quality sources non-processed meat, fish and dairy. After all, variety is key to a healthy diet.

The Obesogen Effect

Bruce Blumberg, PhD, Kristin Loberg
Authors:
Bruce Blumberg, PhD, Kristin Loberg

What if everything you knew about the biology of body weight is wrong? According to compelling, leading-edge science, being overweight isn't just the result of too many cheeseburgers and not enough cardio. Another silent factor is contributing mightily to our obesity epidemic: "obesogens."These toxins--which are everywhere, from our food containers to furniture--sabotage our efforts to lose weight by disrupting our endocrine system, altering how we metabolize fat and permanently changing our fat cells, despite our efforts to count calories, exercise, and lose weight. Even scarier: lab tests have proven that these chemicals can irreversibly re-program the expression of our genes, which means that obesity can become an inherited trait. The chemicals we're exposed to will not just meaningfully affect our health, but our children's health, and future generations as well.Sound like science fiction? Dr. Blumberg was the first to coin the term "obesogens" in 2006 when the irrefutable data was staring him in the face. His research spawned a whole new area of study that has triggered a fascination among top scientists worldwide to understand obesogens-how they work, where they are hidden, and what it means for our health and that of future generations.In THE OBESOGEN EFFECT, Dr. Blumberg is ready to reveal his landmark research to show how hidden chemicals might be the root cause of our 21st century obesity epidemic. With a rich blend of storytelling, anecdotes, a synthesis of his research, and a three-step action plan to prevent and minimize the effects of obesogens, THE OBESOGEN EFFECT will transform your life and the lives of future generations.

This beautiful book will follow on from the plan, showing the reader how to Nourish, Sweat and Strengthen for a healthier, stronger lifestyle. Nourish will provide readers with delicious and balanced recipes with easy-to-source ingredients to encourage readers to eat from all the food groups unless medically advised not to. As a former chef Hollie is strongly against 'diets' and feels that we should eat to nourish our bodies, not starve them. The Sweat part of the plan will be split into three key areas of the body so that the workout can be personalised to the readers' goals or weaknesses. All the workouts will include elements of both Pilates and HIIT. Pilates is amazing at toning and fixing postural issues but does not address the incredible health benefits you tend to only get from HIIT (including reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity). Strengthen provides Pilates exercises and descriptions of technique, progressions and regressions, muscles activated and why you would carry out that exercise. The book is designed to be personalised so will also teach the reader about their body, posture types and muscle imbalances, and which Pilates technique would be best for them.Above all, The Model Method is about how our bodies function and perform, rather than how they look, in order to encourage a healthy relationship with food and exercise.

Les Marchés Francais

Brian DeFehr
Authors:
Brian DeFehr

This luscious cookbook was inspired by the unparalleled experience of shopping the open-air markets of Paris. Author Brian DeFehr was raised on the prairies of Canada and struck out to greener pastures in Winnipeg, Chicago, Montreal, and finally landed in Paris, where he developed an appreciation for the French way of shopping the markets, being in tune with the seasons, and allowing the flavors of an exceptionally delicious country to influence what's for dinner. The star of any French book, though, is always France itself: from the bright and clear ocean flavors of the coastal Mediterranean and the Germanic influences in Alsace and Lorraine to the rich comfort foods and cheeses from the mountainous regions near the Alps, the familiar foie gras and cassoulet of Bordeaux, and the piquant Basque flavors closer to Spain in the South, stirred together in the cosmopolitan melting pot of the City of Light---all of this and more, in 75 glorious dishes. They all happen to be gluten-free, inspired by seasonal market produce, and you'd never guess how healthy they are.Photographer Pauline Boldt has shot every dish in the book, along with atmospheric market shots, ingredient, and process shots. The recipes are inherently simple, focusing on good-quality produce, meats, and clear flavors, and the French mystique is ever present. Its aim is to take the reader on a tour of the best markets Paris has to offer, seasoned with culinary traditions from across France, without ever leaving your kitchen or armchair.
