The No 1 bestselling cookery book in Ireland - for two years running! 'These lovely boys always create incredibly tasty food.' Jamie Oliver Let's face it: while we want to eat more fruit and veg and things we know are good for us, we sometimes fall short because we're not sure how to turn all that great produce into great food. Well, welcome to the Happy Pear way of eating - healthy but never worthy, easy but never dull, and packed with mind-blowing flavour, exciting texture and vibrant colour. The Happy Pear opened ten years ago when twins David and Stephen Flynn, passionate about starting a food revolution in their home town, took over their local fruit and veg shop and later opened a café. Their revolution has not only succeeded, but it is spreading, and The Happy Pear's fans range from young parents to pensioners, ladies-who-lunch to teens-on-the-run, hipsters to Hollywood stars. David and Stephen's first cookbook is full of irresistible recipes for everything from everyday breakfasts, lunches and dinners, to scrumptious - and yes, still wholesome! - cakes and sweet treats, to special occasion splurges. David and Stephen also tell their story (how they transformed from jocks to hippies before finally finding their groove), share their top tips for maximizing taste and goodness in food, and explain how they've succeeded in building a food business based on flavour, health and community.

Though they have written two Number One bestselling vegetarian cookbooks, David and Stephen Flynn, the twins behind the Happy Pear cafés and food business, know it can be challenging to juggle everything and still feel inspired! And being busy dads themselves, they also know the pressure of getting delicious healthy meals on the table every day. So Recipes for Happiness is very close to their hearts. And it does what it says on the cover: it is crammed with recipes to make you happier - including a huge section of economical easy dinners that can be rustled up in 15 minutes (chickpea tikka masala, Thai golden curry, one-pot creamy mushroom pasta); gorgeous hearty dishes (goulash, Greek summer stew, an ingenious one-pot lasagne that's cooked on the hob); a selection of plant-based alternatives to family favourites (burgers, hotdogs, cheatin' nuggets, kebabs), and irresistible treats (summer fruit Bakewell tart, double choc brownie cake). For nearly 15 years David and Stephen's mantra has been Eat More Veg!. They have seen fads come and go and they know that what works - for themselves, their families and the thousands of people who eat the Happy Pear way. Cook from Recipes for Happiness and you too will definitely be well on the way to making your life healthier and happier!

The Part-Time Vegetarian

Flexible Recipes to Go (Nearly) Meat-Free

Author: Nicola Graimes

Publisher: Watkins Media Limited

ISBN: 1848992653

Category: Cooking

Page: 224

View: 8208

The popularity of the part-time vegetarian (flexitarian) diet - one that is largely vegetarian but occasionally includes poultry, meat and seafood - is growing. As meat and fish become more and more expensive and the health benefits of a vegetarian diet are well documented, The Part-Time Vegetarian taps into a growing trend of flexitarian eating. Rather than meat or fish taking centre stage, the recipes in this book showcase the often under-used vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, eggs and dairy foods - and show just how delicious and varied this way of eating can be. Organised by meal type, the book features chapters on Breakfasts & Brunches, Light Meals, Weekday Dinners, Weekend Cooking and Food for Sharing. The recipes are all vegetarian, but the majority include a Part-Time Variation, showing you how to include meat or fish if you feel like it. It's the perfect book for the casual vegetarian looking for a nutritious and environmentally intelligent way to eat, those who want to cater for a vegetarian, or the committed vegetarian who wants to try new recipes. The Part-Time Vegetarian makes vegetarian eating doable.

The #1 New York Times bestseller answers: What if one simple change could save you from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer? For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers—and now, their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives. Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet—it could save your life. It may overturn most of the diet advice you’ve heard—but the experts behind Forks Over Knives aren’t afraid to make waves. In his book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn explained that eating meat, dairy, and oils injures the lining of our blood vessels, causing heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. In The China Study, Dr. Colin Campbell revealed how cancer and other diseases skyrocket when eating meat and dairy is the norm—and plummet when a traditional plant-based diet persists. And more and more experts are adding their voices to the cause: There is nothing else you can do for your health that can match the benefits of a plant-based diet. Now, as Forks Over Knives is introducing more people than ever before to the plant-based way to health, this accessible guide provides the information you need to adopt and maintain a plant-based diet. Features include: Insights from the luminaries behind the film—Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, The Engine 2 Diet author Rip Esselstyn, and many others Success stories from converts to plant-based eating—like San’Dera Prude, who no longer needs to medicate her diabetes, has lost weight, and feels great! The many benefits of a whole-foods, plant-based diet—for you, for animals and the environment, and for our future A helpful primer on crafting a healthy diet rich in unprocessed fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, including tips on transitioning and essential kitchen tools 125 recipes from 25 champions of plant-based dining—from Blueberry Oat Breakfast Muffins and Sunny Orange Yam Bisque to Garlic Rosemary Polenta and Raspberry-Pear Crisp—delicious, healthy, and for every meal, every day.

An Elvis Quesadilla with Maple-Yogurt Drizzle crosses paths with Praise Seitan Vegan Roast and Oma's Full of Beans. Roasted Beet Burgers sidle up to Only-Kale-Can-Save-Us-Now Salad and Pesto-Parmesan Corn on the Cob. With ample helpings of sass and heart, the authors intersperse their recipes with treatises on why vegan and how vegan. In addition, the authors provide support for vegan parents of vegan children and anyone who wants to indulge in the meat- and cheese-based foods they grew up loving, without sacrificing any animals to enjoy them.

As someone who juggles many jobs between being a doctor, a personal trainer and an author, I understand how difficult it can be to prioritise food and eating well. I wanted to create a collection of beautiful recipes that are not only nutritious and great tasting, but super quick and simple to make, using only a handful of ingredients. The Fuel Up section is designed for just that - it is where you will find my recipes for grab-and-go breakfasts, lunches on the run and dinners that take less than 30 minutes to satisfy you after a long day at work! However, I truly believe that when we do have the time to cook a meal, bake some bread and sit down with friends and family to share some food, we should totally embrace those moments. This is where the Power Down section comes in: for when you're not in a hurry, I have included my chosen recipes for lazy weekend brunches, family dinners, breads and teatime treats. This is a cookbook that will help you fall in love with cooking and improve your relationship with food, so that you approach it not only as a source of nutrients, but also happiness, satisfaction and health. Hazel x Includes more than 100 recipes PLUS: - 10 'no recipe recipes' for emergency snacks + meal prep hacks for maintaining a healthy lifestyle when you're busy - an introduction to Hazel's five store-cupboard saviours, including 10 ways to cook with each one - a key for special dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and low sugar - nutritional advice covering the basics of nutrition, how to meet your 5-a-day and special nutritional requirements for a plant-based diet - features on how to live well for optimum health, with information on sleep, meditation, mindfulness and mindful eating
