Summary

Healthy eating is within everyone’s reach in this simple guide to buying, preparing, and cooking one hundred delicious and nutritious foods. Packed full of recipes, information, and guidance, 100 Foods You Should be Eating is a book for anyone who wants to take a simpler approach to health and good food. It has been written with one thing in mind: to make us think differently about the food we buy and eat. Award-winning author of The Health Delusion, Glen Matten, gives us a straight-talking take on the best way to buy, prepare, and cook the best ingredients—and it really is easy. The details of each of the one hundred foods cover all the information you need, including what it is, health benefits, the best way to buy, cook, and store it, and a simple recipe or serving suggestion. New diets appear all the time with promises for drastic weight loss and better health, while the supermarket shelves are full of products that have bits put in, bits taken out, “healthy” ranges, low-fat alternatives and fortified foods—not to mention exotic new “health” ingredients. The fact is that eating good nutritious food doesn’t have to be this complicated. Organized into eight chapters that reflect the way we eat (Breakfast, The Munchies, Lunch on the Go, Strapped for Cash, Summer Living, Friends Round, Fast Food, Lazy Sundays, Kids, and Desserts and Drinks) the book is extremely easy to use and includes photographs of recipes as well as ingredients.“If you think that healthy eating is all about eating “rabbit food,” foods that are expensive and foods that are difficult and time-consuming to prepare, then this book will turn everything you think you know about healthy living on its head…. Glen proves that healthy food doesn’t mean food that is tasteless, dull and bland.”—Norwich Evening News

    Does earth have spirit or soul? This is a question asked ever more frequently, especially by those interested in the future of the natural world and the development of consciousness. The alchemists said ‘the greater part of the soul is outside the body’, and indigenous cultures have felt that soul or spirit resides in Nature and the physical environment. Such notions have been dismissed by modernity as illusions, but we are beginning to have second thoughts about the animation of the earth. Science and rationality have not taught us how to love or care for the earth, and in the modern era the environment has been disrespected.  
    The mythic bonds to Nature such as those found in Aboriginal Australian cultures appear to have real survival value because they bind us to the earth in a meaningful way. When these bonds are destroyed by excessive rationality or a collapse of cultural mythology, we are left alone, outside the community of Nature and in an alienated state. In this state we do real damage to the environment, because it is no longer part of our spiritual body or moral responsibility.  
    Jung was one of the first thinkers of our time to consider the psychic influence of the earth and the conditioning of the mind by place. Inspired by his writings and those of James Hillman, the field of eco-psychology has arisen as a powerful new area of inquiry. "Edge of the Sacred: Jung, Psyche, Earth" contributes to global eco-psychology from an Australian perspective.

    Since 2015 I’ve been researching all the books, internet sources and magazines (Autosport, F1 News and Motor Sport) covering 1990’s F1. Furthermore I’ve interviewed various key figures employed by Benetton, Ford Electronics and Williams. In addition, I’ve studied all the on track action from time – simply because I love reliving that era of F1. This book & its short stories listed above are the fruits of all that hard work and research. 
    As a devoted Formula 1 fan, I thought I knew everything about the sport from the 1990’s before starting this project. But since interviewing those involved it soon became apparent how much had yet to be made public. I’ve resigned from my day job purely to write this book. That is h

    Follow Stick Man through a disastrous day in this hilarious adventure inspired by real signs. 
     
    Stick Man is that guy you see around town but don’t really know very well. Everywhere you go, there he is, crossing the street, waiting for the bus, issuing warnings about potential disasters at sea and on land, at the mall and at work. But when he’s not offering advice, what does a day in the life of Stick Man actually look like? This catastrophe-packed book uses images derived from real signs to follow a continuous narrative as Stick Man navigates the perils of a single, hilariously bad day. Everyone has had that day that just keeps getting worse, but Stick Man’s adventures show readers both what a bad day really looks like, and that in the end it’s never really quite as bad as it may seem. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for when life, or a forklift, knocks you down.

    From miniature donkeys to enormous draft horses, from regal Arabian stallions to sassy Shetland ponies, horses and other equines bring us delight and comfort whenever we encounter them. Even more so, perhaps, when humans and horses are brought together through a rescue. Whether someone has started a rescue ranch on purpose or circumstances align to match up the right horse with the right person, stories of second chances warm our hearts and restore our hope. 
     
    This emotional and inspiring collection of true stories introduces you to a pony who helps a little girl get over her fear of riding, a donkey who discovers his purpose protecting vulnerable lambs, blind horses who teach their human about courage, and even a pony who somehow figures out how to drive a golf cart. By turns humorous and heartwarming, these delightful tales are the perfect companion for those times you long to slow down, take a load off, and enjoy the ride.
