The Right Fat
We’ve switched to low-fat foods, but are we any healthier? Research suggests not! Nicola Graimes in her new book suggests that now’s the time to make a stand for fat – but explains that we have to be eating the right types in the right amounts for good health in the long term. Fat is an important source of energy and vital for cell growth, hormone regulation, cognitive development and supports good heart, gut and skin health. Nicola Graimes celebrates the ‘right’ fats, not only highlighting their numerous health attributes, but also their diversity and the enjoyment they give to our cooking and eating. Her book dispels many of the myths surrounding fats, including which fats are healthy and the ones to avoid. It also showcases the best ways to prepare and cook fats for maximum nutrition and flavour. With over 50 delicious and vibrant recipes covering Breakfasts, Small Plates, Big Plates, Sides and Treats as well as easy-to-understand nutritional advice, the book provides the complete package to sensible right-fat eating for the long term and not a quick-fix diet. The book highlights that balance is key, with other food groups, such as good-quality plant proteins and right carbs, being equally important. The Right Fat is a practical and inspirational approach to maintaining a healthy way of eating – it’s time to revive our enjoyment of this valuable food group.

The Part-Time Vegetarian

release date: Sep 15, 2015
The Part-Time Vegetarian
The common link between vegetarians and part-time vegetarians (flexitarians) is that they like to base their meals on vegetables. Whether this is for health, economic or moral reasons (or a combination of all three), the fact is a flexitarian diet – one that is largely vegetarian but occasionally includes poultry, meat and seafood – is growing in popularity and is a long-term trend that cannot go ignored. Let’s face it the flexitarian or semi-vegetarian diet is the way to go: meat and fish are becoming prohibitively expensive; our current consumption cannot be sustained in years to come; and the health benefits of a vegetarian diet are well documented. But while the number of vegetarians is significant, a study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that nearly two out of three vegetarians occasionally like to meat, chicken or fish. The Part-Time Vegetarian Cookbook shows just how delicious, adaptable and varied this way of eating can be. Rather than taking centre stage, meat or fish are not the main focus of the recipes, which value the often under-used and under-valued vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, eggs and dairy foods. The recipes are not about taking something away, however, but adding a new dimension and consequently widening and extending the homecook’s repertoire of dishes. Organised by meal type, The Part-Time Vegetarian Cookbook features chapters on Breakfasts & Brunches, Small Bites (snacks, lunches and light meals), Weekday Suppers, Weekend Cooking, Food for Sharing (entertaining, special occasion, celebrations and al fresco) and Something Sweet. The recipes are all vegetarian, but can easily be adjusted to suit non-vegetarians.

With practical advice and tips, the book explains how eating the "right" carbs is vital: providing energy, improving the health of the gut, digestion and mood, as well as aiding sleep. It shows how to choose carbs as well as the best ways to prepare and cook them for maximum nutrition and minimum nutrient loss. Over 50 delicious, simple recipes are included, with each having a tip box highlighting the right carb contained in the recipe as well as nutritional breakdown and calorie count.
