Transform your relationship with food and develop healthy eating habits through mindfulness in this cookbook and guide from a renowned nutritionist. Whether you are trying to lose weight, recover from an eating disorder, or improve your overall state of calm and wellness, this book helps you change your relationship with food and cultivate a positive eating mindset. Eating a sandwich while running from a bear isn't good for digestion or nutrition. That's exactly what we're doing when eating a meal on the run or being distracted by computers, TVs, and newspapers. Rather than nourishing our bodies, we are feeding anxiety and poor habits that prevent our systems from functioning well. Author and registered dietitian Michelle Babb shows you how to practice mindful eating that lets your body access the nutrients from food and turn on its self-regulating system. It's the sustainable way to shed pounds, maintain your healthiest weight, and ensure optimal digestion. When you build a positive relationship with food, you reduce binge and emotional eating. Included in the book are 30 vegetarian recipes designed to enhance your introduction to mindful eating by engaging all the senses. Learn how to: * Bring your attention to eating * Engage the senses (tune into smell, taste, texture, thoughts) while eating * Identify your habits and patterns around food * Eat when you're hungry (and know when you're full) * Discover foods that taste good (and make you feel good)

Number 1 best-selling author, Cathy Glass, shares her experience and expertise gained across 25 years as a foster carer in this accessible and practical guide to establishing healthy and happy mealtimes. As well as bringing up three of her own children, Cathy Glass has had to radically improve the diets of most of the seventy-five children she has fostered - encouraging them to eat more healthily and helping them to understand the importance of mealtimes. As a result Cathy has become very good at producing simple but wholesome meals that appeal to children of all ages - here for the first time she shares her knowledge. Children with bad diets are often under or over weight, short in stature, with dull skin and hair, they can lack energy and often have difficulties concentrating. Cathy will help to explain what constitutes a bad diet and why foods heavy in sugar, fat and salt should be limited. She will explore the effect a poor diet and food additives can have on a child's behaviour and intelligence. Most importantly, she will suggest quick, easy and straightforward ways of making a difference. From how to establish routines to what to feed your children for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the importance of mealtimes for family bonding to the impact of the recent UK legislation governing school dinners, Cathy has compiled a comprehensive yet accessible guide to all you need to know about producing healthy and happy family mealtimes.

The author of the New York Times bestselling Genius Foods offers a lifestyle program for resetting your brain and body to their "factory settings"-to help fight fatigue, anxiety, and depression and to optimize cognitive health for a longer and healthier life. The human body was honed under conditions that no longer exist. The modern world has changed dramatically since our days as hunter gatherers, and it has caused widespread anxiety, stress, and disease, leaving our brains in despair. But science proves that the body and brain can be healed with the intervention of lifestyle protocols that help us to regain our cognitive birthright. In The Genius Life, Lugavere expands the Genius Foods plan, which focused on nutrition and how it affects brain health, and expands it to encompass a full lifestyle protocol. We know now that the health of our brains-including our cognitive function and emotional wellness-depend on the health of our gut, endocrine, cardiac and nervous systems as there is a constant feedback loop between all systems. Drawing on globe-spanning research into circadian biology, psychology, dementia prevention, cognitive optimization, and exercise physiology, The Genius Life shows how to integrate healthy choices in all aspects of our daily routines: eating, exercising, sleeping, detoxing, and more to create a healthy foundation for optimal cognitive health and performance. Among Max's groundbreaking findings, you will discover: * A trick that gives you the equivalent of a "marathon" workout, in 10 minutes * How to get the benefits of an extra 1-2 servings of veggies daily without eating them * The hidden chemicals in your home that could be making you fat and sick * How to boost melatonin levels by up to 58% for deeper sleep without supplements The book features an achievable prescriptive 21-day plan for Genius Living that includes daily workouts, meal plans, and meal prep tips, and accompanied with helpful suggestions for healthy swaps and snacks
