Plant-based eating is more than just putting vegetables on your plate. It offers the opportunity to experiment with different flavours and textures, and discover how a single vegetable can be transformed into a multitude of nourishing and tasty meals.
Amerae Vercueil has used her many talents to produce a book that will appeal to vegans and vegetarians looking for something different, as well as anyone who simply wants to add more veggies to their diet. Based on recipes that she enjoys cooking and eating, Food That Loves You Back presents popular veggies in a way that will inspire you to go beyond ‘meat-free Mondays’!
If you’ve ever wondered what to do with Brussels sprouts, canned artichokes, leeks or lentils, this book has the answer. Healthy carbs are covered too, in the form of olive oil pastry, seed & oat bread, and fl atbreads, and if you’re searching for a sweet treat to end a vegan meal, look no further than Amerae’s peanut butter and choc-chip cookies, banana gingerbread loaf, or showstopping date & chocolate cake with chocolate ganache.
We would all love to eat less carbohydrates and switch to a low-carb diet, but many of us think we just do not have the time. We believe that low-carb cooking and baking are time consuming, because you have to start from scratch, and it involves specialised ingredients which may be expensive or hard to find. Not so, says Vickie de Beer, who believes the problem lies in the fact that we have become afraid of the kitchen and lost the know-how of basic cooking techniques. The truth is that you can still cook nutritional and flavourful meals without refined carbohydrates even when you are pressed for time.
In Low-carb Express, Vickie shows that with a little planning and better time management, you can cook healthy meals in a cinch that will not only benefit you and your family’s overall health, but might also benefit your budget. In Low-carb Express, you plan your meals around your available time. Whether you have five minutes to whip up a nutritionally dense egg scramble or immune-boosting smoothie, or half an hour to make a delicious low-carb bobotie or the best-ever low-carb cupcakes, Vickie proves that there is no such thing as too little time to make healthy food choices.
With recipes that take between five and thirty minutes to prepare, there really are no more excuses!

Armand is back, stripped all the way, as usual.
His first cookbook, Nude, was a runaway success and his accessible approach to food has won over many people to a new way of eating and living – fresh, unadorned, with affordable ingredients prepared in the keto and banting style. His book showed that eating good, healthy food improves health and optimises weight loss. Now in his latest book, Armand’s Nude Food, Armand strips down his favourite dishes (and himself) even further. His self-imposed challenge was to use ingredients that were already in his pantry. These creative explorations lead to a ‘farm-to-table’ approach which proves that simple food is usually the tastiest and healthiest fare.
Armand’s Nude Food consists of 50 banting- and keto-friendly dishes. Step by step, and illustrated with beautiful photographs, Armand shows you how to create delicious dishes from fresh ingredients without making your scale or budget suffer.
So add his keto herb rolls, marrow röstis and coconut milk panna cotta to your cooking arsenal and enjoy the stripped-down goodness.

It took a viral pandemic to reinvigorate the evidence that a low-carb,
high-fat (LCHF) diet may be a ‘vaccine’ against ill health and
premature death. The Eat Right Revolution exposes the real pandemic we
should all worry about: it’s not another coronavirus, but a
diet-related medical condition that threatens people’s life expectancy
and well-being globally.
Izelle Hoffman is on a mission to change perceptions about food and to increase awareness of the benefits of eating the right foods and choosing a life of health and wellness. Did you know, for instance, that the humble sweet potato contains anti-inflammatory properties and regulates blood sugar levels? And that raw honey isn’t simply a sweetener – it has antifungal and antiviral properties as well?
In Mindful Eating, Izelle encourages you to rethink what you put in your body in a fun, healthy way, and demonstrates that living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean that your diet needs to be boring and restricted, especially where vegetables are concerned. By sharing her recipes for energising breakfasts, quick weekday meals, sweet baked goodies, classics with a healthy (Izelle-approved) twist and family favourites, among others, Izelle aims to help you take back control of your wellbeing.
Packed with delicious, nutritious and deceptively simple recipes, Mindful Eating is more than a cookbook; it is an inspirational and motivational guide to leading a healthy lifestyle through good eating.

Delicious pasta recipes each under 500 calories per portion, from classic traditional dishes to contemporary twists, including vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options.
Pasta is one the easiest to make and most joyful to eat meals; always in the cupboard, ideal to turn to in a pinch and the ultimate comfort food. However, a fear of carbs has placed pasta firmly on the no-go list of 'bad' foods for many people - a huge mistake and wholly unnecessary! If you're on the hunt for a balanced, nutritious meal that can please a crowd as easily as provide a quick supper for one, pasta is a great choice. It's often the accompanying sauces and toppings that pile on the calories in a pasta dish, so here Julia Azzarello proves otherwise - all recipes are small on calories, big on nourishing ingredients and full of flavour.
Focusing on fresh, healthy ingredients in delicious combinations, Skinny Pasta also has many vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options. From Vermicelli with Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Feta and Mafaldine with Romanesco Sauce, to tasty salads such as Greek Rotini and soups Butter Bean, Chorizo & Spinach with Pappardelle, as well as quick and easy mains including Orecchiette with Cime Di Rapa & Chilli, Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n' Cheese, there's a pasta for every occasion.
If you have a little extra time on your hands then make your own basic pasta dough, gluten-free gnocchi, fresh pesto or marinara sauce, or simply add shop bought pasta, and indulge in a delicious and nutritious treat.
People with gluten intolerance or coeliac (celiac) disease often struggle to find suitable recipes. Gluten-free ingredients can be expensive, making it a challenge to prepare family meals that don’t break the budget. One of the keys to successful gluten-free cooking is knowing which flour will give the best result. In this book, the various types of flours are discussed and a homemade gluten-free flour mix that forms the basis of many recipes in the book is included.
The South African Gluten-free Cookbook presents 100 tried-and-tested recipes that are perfect for everyday meals, as well as for entertaining. Baking and desserts receive special attention, but there are also recipes for great-tasting breads, quiches, noodles and pasta dishes that make use of a variety of gluten-free flours and flour substitutes.
In keeping with current trends, caulifl ower, quinoa and kale feature alongside salmon, pesto and Asian-style chicken, while traditional cooking holds its own with pumpkin fritters, waffles, mince pies and Yorkshire pudding.

Did you know that blueberries can help you cope with the after-effects of trauma? That salami can cause depression, or that boosting Vitamin D intake can help treat anxiety?

Two-week meal plan and 100 recipes that use ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties, helping you reduce chronic inflammation and boost immunity.
Chronic inflammation is on the increase in our modern world, leading to common symptoms such as fatigue and joint pain, even in young people.

The good news is that including anti-inflammatory foods in your diet can help relieve symptoms, reduce the risk of chronic inflammation and promote well-being. By swapping to a diet rich in unprocessed and anti-inflammatory ingredients you can regain control over your health and experience real change.
The recipes in this book have been created especially for their anti-inflammatory effect and, in addition, are all gluten free. Many are also vegetarian or vegan, dairy- and nut-free, making it easy to cater for the differing needs of family and friends. This delicious range of everyday meals, suitable for all occasions and members of the family, makes the journey to better health easy and enjoyable.
