Studies have shown that eating significantly less for limited periods of time produces better results than sustained dieting, and that reducing calorie intake is beneficial for chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. Periodic Fasting introduces the concept of eating normally for five days, followed by two days of restricted eating (also known as the 5:2 diet). During fasting, the body uses its inherent healing capacity to restore our health and wellbeing.
Unlike many popular diets, periodic (intermittent) fasting puts you in control of what you eat. It’s as simple as eating normal, healthy meals on non-fasting days and making sensible choices on fasting days. It requires no special diet foods or supplements, so everyone in the family can eat the same meals, making this an ideal weight-loss programme for families with differing nutritional needs. Includes guidelines and menu plans for fasting and non-fasting days, examples of meals and snacks that make up the 600 calorie limit on fasting days, and sixty tasty and nutritious recipes for breakfasts, lunches and dinners with variations on how to adapt the dishes for fasting days.

Anyone who has spent serious time outdoors knows that in survival situations, wild plants are often the only sustenance available. The proper identification of these plants can mean the difference between survival and death.
This book describes habitat and distribution, physical characteristics, and edible parts of wild plants—the key elements of identification. Hugely important to the book are its color photos. There are over one hundred of them, further simplifying the identification of poisonous and edible plants. No serious outdoors person should ever hit the trail without this book and the knowledge contained within it.

Pie & Whiskey is the tent revival of literary events where writers such as Anthony Doerr, Steve Almond, and Elissa Washuta present original works based on prompts that include the words pie and whiskey. This anthology collects the best of that writing along with new pieces to bring this spirited gathering to the printed page.
Pie & Whiskey, the book, is a literary collection of readings presented over the past six years in Spokane, WA, and Missoula, MT, at Pie & Whiskey, the event, run by Kate Lebo and Samuel Ligon. Writers like Jess Walter, J Robert Lennon, Kim Barnes, and ML Smoker were invited to generate new work based on prompts that involve pie or whiskey or both. Sam and Kate figured that good writing served with a slice of pie and a shot of whiskey would create an energized atmosphere uncommon at literary events.
The contributors, drawn mainly from the west, but not exclusively, responded with surprising, funny, heartbreaking, fantastically written stories and poems. The book will include a smattering of pie recipes and whiskey-centric cocktails. Look here for tasty literary servings.
