Author: Megan Olson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/07/2020

Eat Your Way to a Healthier, Happier You The key to losing weight is not to deprive yourself until the scale hits a certain number, but to eat properly balanced meals that leave you feeling fuller for longer. Megan Olson, certified nutritionist and founder of the blog Skinny Fitalicious, gets this. In her breakthrough collection, Megan not only shows you how to make delicious breakfasts, lunches, dinners and desserts--all amazingly under 500 calories--but how to cook meals rich in protein, fiber and healthy fats, so you can curb your cravings and effortlessly cut the junk from your diet. These flavorful recipes replace high-calorie ingredients with creative, lowcalorie swap outs, such as subbing Greek yogurt for mayo or ground oats for white flour, to naturally (and deliciously!) make each meal leaner. Find healthier ways to enjoy your favorite dishes, with recipes like Chicken Pad Thai, replacing noodles with spiralized sweet potato, or Stuffed Pepper Soup, which ditches the rice and beef for low-calorie cauliflower rice and ground turkey. You'll never settle for a bland breakfast again thanks to Megan's incredible, low-carb PB&J Doughnuts or Cheesy Tex-Mex Cauliflower Casserole. And if you thought losing weight meant ditching sweets, think again. Enjoy an array of processed sugar-free treats like Tahini, Vanilla and Espresso Chocolate Bites and No-Bake Cookie Dough. Plus each of these incredible recipes is accompanied with helpful nutritional information so you know exactly what you're nourishing your body with. With Megan's wholesome, balanced recipes, you'll lose weight and build a better relationship with food, all while enjoying delicious, leaner meals.

Wake/Sleep

Wake/Sleep

Author: Ariane Resnick Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/06/2020

Filled with recipes for food and DIY health and beauty treatments, Wake/Sleep is two books in one: one half has advice and tips on staying alert and energetic, but turn the book over and discover the best ways to calm down, relax and fall asleep. Caffeine features heavily on the Wake side but eucalyptus and citrus are fascinating and stimulating alternatives. Recipes span from the perfect bulletproof coffee-the added fat slows down the body's absorption of the caffeine for a smoother buzz-to Matcha Mint Gummies and Chocolate Stout Chili. On the Sleep side, calm your body and mind with sweet potatoes, pumpkin and calcium and magnesium-rich foods, with recipes including Peppermint Tea Latte, Lemon-Lime Avo Mousse and Banana Pudding. DIY Coffee Body Scrub will energise even the most reluctant morning person and, when it's time to wind down, a calming Yogurt Bath Soak will promote relaxation.
