If you have ever worried about whether you should be switching to low-GI carbs (even how to do that), or wondering if you are losing nutrients by using frozen vegetables, or even the simple basics of feeding a family or keeping your weight on-track – then this book by Catherine Saxelby, a leading Australian nutritionist, is your answer.

What’s more, she is keen to bust some of the most common food myths.

Subtitled the ultimate A-Z guide, this 400-page book with over 500 entries will become the one you go to for every query. Fast foods, electrolytes, maltodextrin, royal jelly – and much more.

Such an eclectic mix of everything to do with food and nutrition would be confusing without the sensible alphabetical layout (dip in and out without wading through chapters), an excellent index, and Saxelby’s no-nonsense, practical and friendly writing style.

Catherine Saxelby’s reputation as a nutritionist is undisputed and this book, which took her two years to compile, brings her expertise right into your kitchen as you cook or make out your shopping list.
