Eating whole foods can transform a diet, and mastering the art of cooking these foods can be easy with the proper techniques and strategies.

Once the reader learns one of Chaplin's base recipes, whether for gluten-free muffins, millet porridge, or baked marinated tempeh, the ways to adapt and customise it are endless: change the fruit depending on the season, include nuts or seeds for extra protein, or even change the dressing or flavouring to keep a diet varied.
Chaplin encourages readers to seek out local and organic ingredients, stock their pantries with nutrient-rich whole food ingredients, prep ahead of time, and most important, cook at home.

An easy & proven way to build good habits & break bad ones.
Tiny changes, remarkable results.
This international best seller by James Clear shows you how daily incremental improvement can lead to long term and sustainable change. By focussing on the four stages of habit formation being Noticing, Wanting, Wanting and Liking. James discusses how it is not always lack of motivation but a lack of simple steps that prevent us from achieving our goal - whether that goal is spending more time meditating, exercising or learning a new craft, instrument or sport. It is down to putting in place the actions that help you to improve incrementally each day. If you improve 1% everyday by the end of the year you are 37 times better than where you started.
He draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, he tells inspiring stories of Olympic gold medalists, leading CEO's and distinguished scientists who have used the science of tiny habits to stay productive, motivated and happy.
In the book, Jay draws deeply from ancient wisdom, modern social science, and his own rich experiences in the ashram to articulate a journey similar to the one he took. He guides people step-by-step through the process of adapting to the monk mindset, first by letting go—a cleansing to make space for growth; then by growing—reshaping your life to make decisions with intention, purpose and confidence; and finally by giving—looking beyond yourself to deepen gratitude and relationships.
The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world.
He says, “People need to go through experiences to learn, so the book is full of practical exercises, activities, and experiments. Everything in this book is something one can actually do in their own time at home, whether in the back of a car, on a commute, walking the dog, or cooking.” Along the way, Jay proves that everyone can—and should—think like a monk.

Walden and Civil Disobedience
“Walden” is the classic account of two years spent by Henry David Thoreau living at Walden Pond near Concord, Massachusetts in 1845. The story is detailed in its accounts of Thoreau’s day-to-day activities, observations, and undertakings to survive out in the wilderness for two years. Thoreau’s journal is an exquisite account of a man seeking a more simple life by living in harmony with nature. In today’s fast-paced consumer-driven society the austere life style endorsed by Thoreau is as relevant and refreshing as ever.

Slow - Live life simply
Slow is a personal review of how Brooke McAlary had it all and realised that in part that was too much or maybe just too much stuff. This book is a guide to help you slow down, tread lighter on the earth and create a home that is simpler, slower and most importantly, works for you.
Brooke and her family gradually created their own way of living, with an emphasis on depth, connection and experiences. In Slow Brooke gently encourages you to find pleasure and value in a simpler life, sharing the practical tips and rituals that have helped her on her own journey, from decluttering to de-owning, messiness to mindfulness, from asking why to asking where to now?
Part memoir, part practical companion, Slow provides a fascinating insight into the benefits of slowing down. It will inspire you to forget about the Joneses and create a life filled with the things that really matter to you . . . slowly, of course.
"Finally, a slow living guide for the imperfect folks. If you're looking for a rule-riddled, anxiety-ridden manifesto thick on sanctimony and decree, you won't find it here. Paired with tremendous insights and joyful illustrations, Brooke McAlary's exuberant, honest words are a refreshing contribution to the slow living community. If you're seeking a simpler path, start here." - Erin Loechner, Blogger at DesignforMankind.com and author of Chasing Slow
