A modern gluten-free diet is a simple way to get back to feeling fit and healthy. In these pages you'll find delicious, approachable and easy recipes packed with vibrant flavours that you will be happy to share with friends and family. Your guests won't even realize that they are eating gluten-free! You or your child, partner, relative or friend may have been advised by a doctor to go gluten-free. At first, this may seem a huge challenge, but gluten-free eating needn't mean missing out on the treats that others take for granted. Cakes, breads, pastries and puddings are all within reach. Gluten-free ingredients are now readily available from your local supermarket or health food shop (or online) and can be transformed into fab suppers to share with friends and family, from pasta dishes, pizzas and pancakes to light, moreish cakes and deliciously crumbly pies and tarts. If you have just been diagnosed with coeliac disease, what you can buy and what you can cook may seem a little bewildering - you will need to avoid wheat, barley, rye, and any products containing them. If you have been diagnosed for a while you may feel as though you always cook the same dishes, week in week out. In this book you will find inspirational new recipes to eat alongside your old favourites, along with many tips and variations to create a wide-ranging gluten-free repertoire.

Silent Sparks The Wondrous World of Fireflies

Silent Sparks The Wondrous World of Fireflies

Author: Sara Lewis Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/04/2016

For centuries, the beauty of fireflies has evoked wonder and delight. Yet for most of us, fireflies remain shrouded in mystery: How do fireflies make their light? What are they saying with their flashing? And what do fireflies look for in a mate? In Silent Sparks, noted biologist and firefly expert Sara Lewis dives into the fascinating world of fireflies and reveals the most up-to-date discoveries about these beloved insects. From the meadows of New England and the hills of the Great Smoky Mountains, to the rivers of Japan and mangrove forests of Malaysia, this beautifully illustrated and accessible book uncovers the remarkable, dramatic stories of birth, courtship, romance, sex, deceit, poison, and death among fireflies. The nearly two thousand species of fireflies worldwide have evolved in different ways--and while most mate through the aerial language of blinking lights, not all do. Lewis introduces us to fireflies that don't light up at all, relying on wind-borne perfumes to find mates, and we encounter glow-worm fireflies, whose plump, wingless females never fly. We go behind the scenes to meet inquisitive scientists who have dedicated their lives to understanding fireflies, and we learn about various modern threats including light pollution and habitat destruction. In the last section of the book, Lewis provides a field guide for North American fireflies, enabling us to identify them in our own backyards and neighborhoods. This concise, handy guide includes distinguishing features, habits, and range maps for the most commonly encountered fireflies, as well as a gear list. A passionate exploration of one of the world's most charismatic and admired insects, Silent Sparks will inspire us to reconnect with the natural world.

The Best of Good A Novel

The Best of Good A Novel

Author: Sara Lewis Format: Paperback Release Date: 26/09/2007

Life was fine for Tom Good, called Good by almost everyone. He was actually getting paid to play music, started the band Point Blank, and penned three hits that became forever lodged in his generation's collective memory. Then, for no apparent reason and to everyone's surprise, he walked away from it all. That was more than twenty years ago. Now Good has settled into a low-key life, writing and recording songs in his closet studio during the day and bartending in a San Diego music club at night. He feels so grounded and secure in his well-established routines with regard to his relationships, his clothes, his food, and his apartment, that minor alterations in these rituals can cause him to break out into a sweat. But the carefully crafted predictability of his life flies out the window the day Good learns that one of his old girlfriends is the single mother of a ten-year-old boy who looks just like him. Sara Lewis, who won readers over with her previous novels, including Second Draft of My Life and The Answer Is Yes, once again reveals the ironies of everyday life with her signature humor and poignancy. The Best of Good is an irresistible tale of coming-of-age at the mid-point in life.
