Use the handy reference section at the back to quickly find recipes that will help you to lose weight, maximize energy levels, boost the immune system, combat ageing and look amazing.

We know that the key to children's health, development and happiness lies in the quality of the food we wean them on, and continue to cook for them - and the food they then want to eat themselves. But it's all too easy to fall back on jars of processed baby food when you're feeding your baby - or the same old limited purees you've dished up again and again. Lack of time and knowledge often prevents parents from feeding their babies exciting, nutrient-rich food. However, help is on hand. Christine Bailey, an expert in child nutrition, has devised a set of easy-to-follow recipes to help make first foods simple. The book comes with tables of foods for parents to introduce, and each recipe has a list of nutrients and at-a-glance symbols, as well as tips on preparation and storage. From a simple Fennel & Apple Puree for the first stage, to a Polenta Florentine or Sesame Stir-Fried Pork & Sweet Potato Mash for 7-9 months, or a Creamy Pesto Chicken with Roast Vegetables, Salmon with Mango & Avocado Salsa, or Pear & Coconut Crumble, for 9-12 months, you'll find delicious recipes your baby will love and you'll even want to eat yourself!
How many mornings have you woken up feeling sluggish, bloated and overweight? Tired of calorie-counting, low-GI or low-carb diets? Have you lost the motivation to tone up and lose weight? It's all too easy to reach for a breakfast full of sugar and fat, as well as additives and preservatives ...and then grab a similar lunch and dinner. Flick through the pages of this book, though, and you'll discover a super-effective Juice Diet - follow this and you'll see the weight just drop off, as well as noticing fantastic improvements to the way you look and the way you feel. With more than 100 juices and smoothies divided into chapters on Juice Blitz (weekend plans), Juice Week (a week-long plan), Juicing for Life (a month-long plan for your daily life), Beauty Juices, Energy Juices and Immunity Juices, and mouth-watering juice recipes throughout, this book offers an easy and delicious way to achieve your body's true potential.
We all want our children to enjoy happy and fulfilled lives and reach their full potential at school and beyond.

Each of the 100 recipes are quick and easy to make and also come with key nutritional information and at-a-glance symbols.
Eating too much salt can contribute to many health problems, including osteoporosis, certain cancers, kidney disease and obesity, as well as raising your blood pressure and increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke. Governments and health organisations around the world are advising us to cut our salt intake. However, reducing your salt content doesn't have to mean bland, flavourless food, or meals that are difficult to prepare. This book shows you how to use a range of exciting alternative flavourings, herbs and spices to create tantalizing, healthy meals. What's more, all the recipes are rich in essential nutrients to help boost your health and energy levels. You can choose from a wonderful range of world flavours from different cuisines, as well as low-salt versions of firm favourites, including burgers, curries, breads, soups and sweet treats. This is the one-stop guide to low-salt cooking.
