Fermenting Food for Healthy Eating

Delicious probiotic recipes to boost your digestive and immune systems

By Catherine Atkinson

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

'Probiotics' is the latest buzz word and refers to 'healthy' gut bacteria which are vital to destroy 'bad' bacteria, to boost our immune system, keep our digestion ticking and maintain and improve our overall well-being.

Fermented foods - kefir, kimchi and kombucha, to name just a few - are flooding the supermarket shelves but can be costly to buy.

Whether you are new to fermented foods or looking to expand your repertoire, with Fermenting Food for Healthy Eating you'll discover the astonishing nutritional benefits of fermented foods and drinks, how easy they are to make at home and how to incorporate them into everyday eating.

It includes:

· A comprehensive introduction explaining how fermentation works to preserve food, make it more digestible and increase its vitamin and mineral availability.
· All the basic and more advanced techniques, with step-by-step recipes, foolproof advice and handy hints.
· Individual chapters on fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut and dill pickles, dairy products, including kefir, yogurt and cheeses (and many non-dairy versions), a selection of fermented drinks such as rejuvelec and kvass, plus how to make sourdough and other fermented breads.

Fermenting Food for Healthy Eating is the ultimate guide to fermenting. The book contains a total of 40 recipes for making fermented foods and drinks, and over 40 more nutrient-packed recipes showing how these fermented foods and drinks can be used to create delicious and healthy meals for everyone to enjoy.

Hollie Grant

'Hollie Grant, trainer to Deliciously Ella and Melissa Hemsley, is the new body coach on the block' Style'The Model Method's effective combination of recipes and workouts will leave you feeling stronger, healthier and happier. Hollie is one of the best task-masters on the fitness scene, with a refreshing, balanced approach' Sweaty BettyNourish, sweat and strengthen your way to lifelong wellness with award-winning Pilates instructor and chef Hollie Grant's balanced recipes and workouts.Hollie started The Model Method online plan after years of teaching her private clients so anyone can carry out the plan, anywhere. This beautiful book follows on from the plan, showing the reader how to Nourish, Sweat and Strengthen for a healthier, stronger lifestyle. Nourish: 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. Strengthen: provides Pilates exercises and descriptions of technique, progressions and regressions, muscles activated and why you would carry out that exercise. The book teaches the reader about their body, posture types and muscle imbalances, and which Pilates technique would be best for them.Sweat: split into three key areas of the body so that the workout can be personalised to the readers' goals or weaknesses. All the workouts 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). 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.
