CSIRO Protein Plus

CSIRO Protein Plus

Jane Bowen ,  Grant Brinkworth ,  Genevieve James-Martin

$34.99
Double Reward Points
More info
Over the past three decades, the CSIRO has conducted extensive research to understand diet and lifestyle strategies that optimise weight management, health and wellbeing for everyday Australians. Based on this research, scientists have found that a daily protein intake higher than the current recommendations suggest can benefit many people - namely, people who are trying to lose weight; those who need to gain muscle mass; older people who want to stay physically strong and active as they age; and those following a strictly plant-based diet.

CSIRO Protein Plus applies the exciting emerging science behind the potential additional benefits that can be achieved by evenly distributing protein across the day. This includes incorporating protein-rich foods at regular meals, with an emphasis on greater protein intake at breakfast as part of a healthy eating plan.

This dietary approach, when combined with resistance exercise training, potentially further enhances the effects of a higher-protein diet by promoting even greater appetite (and weight) control and improvements in body composition. These effects can benefit many individuals across the entire adult lifespan.

CSIRO Protein Plus is for anyone wanting an evidence-based strategy for achieving weight loss or general weight management, and for people wanting to improve their lifestyle for healthy ageing.

The Keto For One Cookbook: 100 Delicious Make-Ahead, Make-Fast Meals for One (or Two) That Make Low-Carb Simple and Easy

The Keto For One Cookbook: 100 Delicious Make-Ahead, Make-Fast Meals for One (or Two) That Make Low-Carb Simple and Easy

Dana Carpender

$29.99
Keto For One presents 100 single-serving, macro-proportioned keto meals for breakfast, lunch, dinners, snacks, and desserts.

Single-serve cooking is one of the biggest challenges when trying to adhere to an eating plan. Most recipes are portioned for 4-6 servings, which means you'll be eating the same thing for a week or trying to adjust recipes and struggling to figure out proper cooking times and fractions of measurements. With keto, you also have the additional challenge of balancing your macronutrients-a few too many carbs or not enough fat and your recipe is no longer in the ketogenic zone.

No more fussing with recipes. No more eating leftovers. No more wasted food (or money!). No more cobbling together snacks and calling it a meal. No more temptation to give into carb-laden, nutrient-void, single-serving convenience foods. Just delicious recipes from 'low-carb queen' and best-selling author Dana Carpender. Enjoy delicious keto burgers and smoothies, as well as quick skillet stir-fries and plenty of tasty meals that can be pulled together quickly or ahead of time.

Korean BBQ & Japanese Grills: Yakitori, yakiniku, izakaya

Korean BBQ & Japanese Grills: Yakitori, yakiniku, izakaya

Jonas Cramby

$32.99
In Korean BBQ and Japanese Grills Jonas Cramby explores recipes of Korean and Japanese barbecue - its techniques, philosophy and historical roots.

In Korean BBQ and Japanese Grills Jonas Cramby explores recipes of Korean and Japanese barbecue - its techniques, philosophy and historical roots. He shares his favourite recipes which include, amongst others, yakitori, yakiniku and izakaya-style classics. He also outlines how to perfectly ferment kimchi, how to grill indoors without choking and how to chill a refreshing lager without it turning to ice.

Trimmings and sauces all take minutes to prepare and the meat seconds to barbecue. Jonas suggests grills that are simple, portable and so cheap that anyone can have a feast in the park, on the cook whilst talking, picking and drinking for hours.

The art of Korean barbecue and Japanese grilling is not just a meal, it is a mindful practice. Produce and tools are carefully chosen and something so simple as a piece of chicken, a little salt and fire can, with practice and the right technique, be transformed into something sublime, and is as much about making the food as eating it.

Chapters include: Yakitori (grilled chicken), Yakiniku (grilled meat), Korean BBQ and Izakaya.
