Low Carb Living for Families
In Low carb Living for Families, Monique le Roux Forslund answers all these questions and explains why reducing the carbohydrates and simultaneously increasing the consumption of natural, healthy fats is good for you and your family. She also cuts through the jungle of products and information that confront us in the media and on shelves, so that we can find our way to a healthy life of natural foods that will satisfy hunger and banish cravings.
In addition to over 100 delicious and healthy recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, special occasions, and snack time for the whole family (including babies!), Low-carb Living for Families provides easy-to-follow, practical tips and inspiration for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Forewords to the book have been written by Professor Tim Noakes and Dr Andreas Eenfeldt. Professor Noakes needs no introduction to South Africans; he is SA’s foremost sports scientist and is well known for his advocacy of a low carb high fat lifestyle.
Cook Eat Love Grow
Louise Westerhout delights in cooking for her son (as well as her family and friends) and seeing the results of good and wholesome food, as well as happy mealtimes. For her, cooking, eating, and growing is an integral part of the fun of life. This philosophy is reflected in her ideas and recipes for meals for babies upwards of four months, as well as dishes suitable for the whole family. There is an emphasis on organic food and most of the 70-odd recipes are wheat- and sugar-free with many dairy-, egg- and gluten-free options as well. You will find new options and healthy combinations, using simple and inexpensive ingredients. The text encourages parents without being prescriptive, yet it is simple and practical to eliminate guesswork when it comes to feeding babies and children.
Filled with 60 practical, easy-to-make recipes, it aims to get parents and children involved in the preparation of meals, while promoting a healthy approach to eating.
Kostalgie is a nostalgic journey of Barbara Joubert’s travels through the world, country by country. It all starts in the Karoo where she was born. Memories and recipes from her childhood days combine for a glance back in time, updated with a modern twist. In Paris, France she discovered that French cooking is home food – like beef cheeks cooked in red wine. Portugal is the nation of seafood and pork. Joubert lived in London for 9 months and pub food was her introduction to British cuisine and Italian homemade pasta and ricotta cheesecake was a must to make. Turkey is one of the featured countries in the book. Although Joubert has never actually been there, she was inspired by a restaurant called Anatoli and felt she had to add that to the book. Africa’s wonderful spicy dishes bring the book to a close. The photography by Micky Hoyle is beautifully illustrative of the amazing produce and cultures throughout the book. So much so you feel you can almost taste the mouth-watering dishes brought to life by his stunning visuals.

During the screening of the MasterChef South Africa 2013 series, TV viewers were both fascinated by, and impressed with, the Van der Wat sisters. Seline and Leandri’s relationship and their varying cooking styles and personalities kept audiences on the edge of their seats right up until the final episode as they were ultimately placed second and third – no mean achievement.
Since then, their foodie careers have taken off, albeit in differing directions. But in Two, they are back in collaboration to present a fascinating cookbook concept: taking the same main ingredient and creating two different dishes from it or taking a classic recipe and making one for family and casual dining, and the other version to impress for serious entertaining. Whatever the case, both dishes will be utterly delicious.
500 Green and Detox Juices
Very effective at boosting health, and a great substitute for a sugar-loaded snack, juices can have a fast and positive impact on vitality and mood. As fresh produce retains most of its vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and plant chemicals that are usually killed off by heat in cooking processes, juicing is a great way to absorb nutrients, helping to protect against cardiovascular problems and inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Juicing also fights food intolerances, removing wheat and dairy products from the system and does wonders for bloated stomachs. Children especially will enjoy the bright colours and fresh tastes and will never know there are vegetables hidden among their favourite fruits.

The Book Club Cookbook: Eat Your Words
There are few things that compare to an afternoon curled up with a good book. It is even better if it is followed by a great meal shared with good friends. And the cherry on the top is when, at the end of the gathering, you have a fresh stack of books next to your bed to thrill you for the coming month. But probably the greatest scenario of all is when it was you who hosted book club, and everything went smoothly: you did not kill yourself during the preparations for the evening and your guests liked your books and loved your food. I hope this book will help you towards that specific state of bliss.
The idea for this collection of recipes started with the premise that not all readers are necessarily confident cooks. Neither are some social people who want to invite a group of friends or family over for a catch-up or special celebration. This book helps you prepare a great meal for your gathering with a bit of planning and without too much stress. For this reason, the emphasis is on dishes that can be prepared and often completed before the guests arrive.
