Want to lose weight and be healthier, happier and more beautiful, the easy way – by eating? We don’t want to sound like a cheap add, but … YOU CAN! Now we are serious foodies, so trust us when we tell you that you can reach all of the above, by eating (the right) delicious food. As in most cases in life, it’s all about making choices. How it works? Read on, we found some amazing books to lend a helping hand.

Eat Clean – Wok yourself to health (By Ching-He Huang)

chingFood writer and TV chef Ching-He Huang transformed her health when she began eating whole foods and cutting out processed and high-sugar foods. Her new cookbook Eat Clean guides you in a clear and practical manner to chose the right foods and adopt easy techniques to create delicious meals that help you detoxify and nourish your body, resulting in a better, stronger, slimmer you. The recipes are very easy to follow and most dishes are ready in a matter of minutes. A wonderful cookbook that is a joy to read and flick through. Healthy eating doesn’t get any easier (or tastier).

Ching-He even teamed up with JML to create the perfect tool: the new Lotus Wok from JML is a carbon steel wok that takes its inspiration from the lotus leaf; just as water beads roll off the hydrophobic leaf, moisture rolls off the surface of the wok ensuring your meals are cooked perfectly every time. The self-cleaning ability ensures the Lotus Wok wokis super easy to clean and also helps prevent vegetables from going soggy, so you are left with beautifully crisp, fresh tasting food. The wok heats up quickly distributing high temperatures evenly throughout the base and sides, so your ingredients can be seared at a high heat, with just a small amount of oil to make dishes taste crisp and delicious whilst also retaining their nutrients. Tried an tested by us, and this is indeed a very good wok. And what’s even better, it comes with a glass lid, a steamer rack, wooden spatula and chopsticks, and… a copy of Ching-He’s Eat Clean worth £16.99!
