Calgary Avansino is well-known for being at the cutting edge of well-being and lifestyle trends, but her true passion is healthy eating. She is passionate about clean eating, and about helping people make positive healthy changes to their diet by focusing on nutritious, balanced and wholesome ingredients.

In Keep It Real she inspires us to eat a plant-based diet, which is one where vegetables and plants feature as much as possible. She encourages the whole family to make positive healthy changes and urges us to eat more 'real' food (that is, food that our grandparents would recognise!), to limit sugar in our diets, to cut out processed food and enjoy home-made food together.

As Calgary proves so brilliantly in her book, healthy doesn't have to be hard - it's just about understanding why healthy eating is so important, being organised and having tricks up your sleeve to help keep you on track. Featuring 100 recipes to inspire you in the kitchen and add goodness to your life, discover Calgary's delicious healthy dishes including breakfasts, smoothies and snacks, main meals and desserts, as well as ideas for new twists on old favourites.

Packed with ideas for healthy swaps and ways to make healthy eating a natural part of your life, this is an accessible well-being bible fit for the modern world and will help us all find balance and learn to keep it real.

Authors:
Juliet Grames

'You don't read this book, you live it' Erin Kelly Over a hundred years ago, in a mountainside village in Calabria, Italy, from a union between two young people with little to their names, a baby was born. Beautiful and adored by her mother, baby Mariastella Fortuna -known as Stella - seemed promised a happy destiny. But if Stella Fortuna means 'lucky star,' then life must have a funny sense of humour. Everybody in the Fortuna family knows the story of how Stella, once the most beautiful girl in the village of Ievoli, the unconventional, fiercely independent young woman who refused to learn to cook and who swore she would never marry, has escaped death time and time again. From her childhood in Italy, to her adulthood in America, death has seemed to pursue Stella. She has been burned, eviscerated and bludgeoned; she has choked, nearly fallen out of a window, and on one occasion, her life was only saved by a typo. However, even the best-known stories still have secrets to reveal . . . and even after a century, Stella's is no exception. No woman survives seven or eight deaths without a reason. So, how did she? In a tale which spans nine decades, two continents, and one family's darkest, deepest-buried truths, the answer awaits. . ._______________________________________'A sweeping story of immigration, family, betrayal and most importantly, one extraordinary woman.

I Will Be Complete

Glen David Gold
Authors:
Glen David Gold

'I Will Be Complete is the best memoir I've read in years. It's likely the best memoir published in years.' Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life and Chang and EngFrom the bestselling author of Carter Beats the Devil and Sunnyside, a shocking, big-hearted memoir about his bizarre upbringing in California in the 1970s and how he survived it. Glen David Gold grew up rich on the beaches of 1970s California, until his father lost a fortune and his parents divorced when he was ten.Glen and his English mother moved to San Francisco, where she was fleeced by a series of charming con men and turned increasingly wayward. When he was twelve, she took off for New York without telling him, leaving him to fend for himself. On midnight streets and at drug-fuelled parties, wise-cracking his way through an alarming adult world, Glen watched his mother's countless, wild attempts to reinvent herself. In this exceptional memoir, acclaimed novelist Glen David Gold captures his bizarre, lonely upbringing and how it shaped him as an adult with stunning insight and unsparing candour. Shocking, mordantly funny and achingly affecting, he tells an unforgettable story of the years he spent trying to rescue his mother - and his ultimate realisation that only by breaking free could he ever hope to be complete.'The prose is crystalline, hard as real diamonds, flashing, revealing. The story is simple, just a boy and his mother's long disintegration, but the journey is darkly complicated, heartbreaking, beautiful as hell.' Mark Childress, author of Crazy in Alabama

When Jamie's spectacular meltdown at work results in him being handed his P45, and Laura finds her working days end up with her rugby tackling defenceless pensioners in the high street, a move ten thousand miles away sounds ideal. After all, it might mend some of the cracks that have appeared in their marriage over the past few months... So when Laura is offered a new job in Australia, the Newman family think their dreams have come true. But as the old saying goes - be careful what you wish for, you might just get it. As the hapless couple soon find out, problems have a way of following you, no matter how far you go to avoid them. Can love survive under different skies?
