Summary

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE TIRED of counting calories, carbs, fats, and points, this book makes nutrition count instead. Whole foods are nutrient-rich foods. These foods offer a complete balance in nutritional value while in their natural, unrefined, unprocessed state. They are high in antioxidants, phytochemicals, and essential fats and oils, and low in saturated fats and sugar. Whole Foods Diet Cookbook includes chapters to educate the reader, and offers plenty of delicious menus for every occasion. It provides a three-prong culinary approach to healthy living, weight loss, disease and illness prevention.

    Beginning with a look at the ingredients that makes Burmese food unique – as well as suitable alternatives – MiMi goes on to discuss the special techniques and equipment needed before delving into chapters such as fritters, rice and noodles, salads, meat and fish and sweet snacks. Within these pages you'll find 100 incredible recipes, enabling you to create a taste of Burma in your own kitchen.

    'I can't think of a finer chef to have written a book on nutrition and diet for athletes' Tom Kerridge 
     
    A must-have recipe book designed for cyclists of all levels, written by Alan Murchison - a Michelin-starred chef and champion athlete who now cooks for British Cycling's elite athletes. His easy-to-make and nutritionally balanced meals will help cyclists reach their cycling performance goals - this is flavoursome food to make you go faster. 
     
    The Cycling Chef features more than 65 mouth-watering recipes - including breakfasts, salads, main meals, desserts and snacks, as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes - each designed with busy cyclists in mind. They are all quick and easy to prepare, and are made from ingredients that are readily available in any local supermarket.

    The first book that puts the hearth of the American home-its many unique challenges and innovations-in its proper place in contemporary history. 
    Thomas Jefferson once wrote that if you really want to understand the workings of a society, you have to "look into their pots" and "eat their bread." Steven Gdula gives us a view of American culture from the most popular room in the house: the kitchen. Examining the relationship between trends and innovations in the kitchen and the cultural attitudes beyond its four walls, Gdula creates a lively portrait of the last hundred years of American domestic life. The Warmest Room in the House explores food trends and technology, kitchen design, appliances and furniture, china and flatware, cookery bookery, food lit, and much more. 
    Gdula traces the evolution of the kitchen from the back room where the work of the home happened to its place at the center of family life and entertainment today. Filled with fun facts about food trends, from Hamburger Helper to The Moosewood Cookbook, and food personalities, from Julia Child to Rachael Ray, The Warmest Room in the House is the perfect addition to any well-rounded kitchen larder.
