From Australia’s favourite new health-food chef comes the follow up to the bestselling Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah. Like most of us, Jane Kennedy can’t eat anything she wants because she gets FAT. After having five children in six years and trying every fad diet known to man in an attempt to shift excess weight, Jane decided to take matters into her own hands. A lifetime love of cooking, teamed with a refusal to give up the flavours of her favourite meals, led Jane to develop her own dishes that are delicious but also good for you. In Jane’s second book, OMG! I can eat that?, she shares some of her favourite recipes, just without all the unwanted fat. Chapters include Nibbles, Soups, Piemakins, Chicken & Duck, Beef, Lamb & Pork, Fish & Seafood, Comfort Classics, Vegetables and Dessert. And these recipes aren’t your typical ‘diet’ recipes either, with delicious meals such as Chicken, Leek and Mushrooms ‘piemakins’ (pies in ramekins minus the pastry), Beef Bourguignon, Boombahfree burgers, and even sweet treats like Rhubarb and strawberry crumble, you’ll forget you’re even eating food minus the boombah!
'I lost weight and my skin changed, it cleared. But when I quit the white stuff, I also started to heal. I found wellness and the kind of energy and sparkle I had as a kid. I don't believe in diets or in making eating miserable. This plan and the recipes are designed for lasting wellness.' Sarah Wilson was a self-confessed sugar addict, eating the equivalent of twenty-five teaspoons of sugar every day, before making the link between her sugar consumption and a lifetime of mood disorders, fluctuating weight issues, sleep problems and thyroid disease. She knew she had to make a change. What started as an experiment soon became a way of life, then a campaign to alert others to the health dangers of sugar. I Quit Sugar uses Sarah's personal experience to help you: · beat the sugar habit with a tested eight week plan · overcome cravings via proven and easy tricks · find healthy sugar substitutes · cook sugar-free: over a hundred desserts, cakes, chocolate, kids' treats, snacks and easy detox meals 'Sarah's down-to-earth, practical approach makes the sugar-quitting process doable, while her recipes make it fun' - David Gillespie, author of Sweet Poison.

The perfect collection of recipes that can be served simply for kids, then jazzed up for the adults with just a few additional ingredients - the first cookbook guaranteed to please the whole family. Feeding a family. Every night. Is hard. Jane Kennedy knows because she cooks for seven people, seven days a week. It's not the cooking that's hard, it's thinking of a new dinner ideas EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Grownups are easy. They love spices and chilli and garlic and onions and herbs and zest and can dress up a boring piece of chicken, fish or steak in a flash. Kidsawell. Most kids don't like spices and chilli and herbs and zest. Green bits. Orange bits. And especially not hot bits. So Jane set herself a challenge to find a way to keep everyone happy. A way that wouldn't involve her having to eat 'plain' food just to keep the kids happy and didn't require the kids to miraculously start loving spicy food. A way where one base meal could be jazzed up, or down, to suit all taste buds. One dish; two ways.
Shayla, Jason, Sophia, Taylor, Ed and Jarvis: six vibrant, hard-working, diverse and loyal colleagues, along with Devlin, the boss straight from great-leader heaven, they have bonded over nearly a decade into ‘family’. Using their collective intelligence and wit, they have worked heart and soul to build Pure Waters, Inc. (PWI) from an afterthought into America’s premiere water/waste water treatment company. As fate would have it, “no good deed goes unpunished”. Without their knowledge and certainly without their consent, their profitable, warm-spirited company is sold to a foreign corporation. The new, multi-billion dollar owners are known worldwide for their vicious, ruthless leadership. They ignore policies, procedures, political correctness, any form of decency and federal laws as they trample on the hearts and spirits of these newly conquered employees. Soon, without warning or apology, the escalating, intolerable mistreatment will be stopped, forever, by one of them, in a carefully executed act deemed “terroristic”. Embittered Marcus Mason, the government agent assigned to uncover the doer, tears into their backgrounds, revealing shocking hurts and acts none of them knew about each other, including assault, arson, rape and death. He leaves the six corporate PWI executives further in shards. A blazing, searing love affair, hidden for as long as company policy could be endured is tested to the limit as the explosive investigation concludes. Join these battered but determined American employees, as collective breaths are held, to see if they and their company will ever recover from the assault and battery they valiantly revolt against.

A funny and moving book that Australian women of all generations will love. With all the moxie of an RSL barmaid and the library card of a research fellow, Nelly Thomas has emerged to talk about nothing slighter than the trials of her generation... She's erudite, earthy and entirely unemployable. Helen Razor - The Age (review Melb Comedy Festival) Growing up in post-feminist Australia, Nelly Thomas, one of Australia’s most gifted and natural comedians, was told she could ‘have it all’. She’s giving it a crack – but she still isn’t quite sure what ‘it’ is. What do women want? In pursuit of answers, Thomas has tried being a telemarketer, a professional student, a fast-food worker, a broadcaster, a smoker, a prostitute’s confidant, a health advocate, a reality television obsessive, a mother, a partner (or is it girlfriend? lover?), an award-winning comedian, a sex-educator, a Loony Lefty Feminista and a self-confessed fatty boombah. Like many of her generation, she’s had a lot of options, yet she’s wondering – which do you choose? In this hilarious part-memoir, part-manifesto, Thomas navigates the murky waters of her life and womanhood in the twenty-first century. She tackles the big contemporary issues – career, equality, family, porn, sex, entertainment, obesity, parenting, culture, class, Beyonce’s derriere – with customary insight and a wickedly dry wit. A must-read for the modern Aussie woman.
