Candida Can Be Fun! – Rebecca Richardson
This excellent cookbook is in glossy A4 format, which makes the food pictures more enticing. Even though the title suggests that only Candida sufferers need this guide in their kitchens, the recipes are gluten and dairy free so applies to a wider audience. The recipes do not exclude meat or flesh eaters, but the bulk of the meals are vegetarian and hence captures another greater percentage of the population.

Eat your heart out – Felicity Lawrence
The writer of Not on the Label gives us another fascinating read. Even though every chapter gives a rather depressing insight into the politics behind our food, I think it is about time we start taking responsibility for the choices we make. I fully endorse the support for local, sustainable food where producers are given a fair price for the work and hardship that goes into putting the food on our plates. In my opinion, this book is a must read.
