publisher’s note

52 Mondays, right? Yup, it’s that time again. Time to dust off the resolution notebook from the year that’s passed, see what the scoresheet reveals and just exactly how many of the goals were met in 2019. This ritual will then be followed-up by writing an even more ambitious list of goals for 2020. Personally, I have found it a lot more manageable to actually keep these under “notes” on my phone; at least it’s easier to track – not necessarily easier to follow and meet said goals. A year seems like a long time, but essentially we only have 52 Monday mornings to make the most of the week ahead. Most of us, myself included, will only be back in the office on the second Monday of 2020 and we…

eat to win guy food

Zero Sugar Diet, is an in-depth eating plan specifically designed to detox your body, bring your hormones into balance, heal your liver, and take away food cravings while delivering rapid weight loss. Generally speaking, it works by doing one thing very, very effectively: drastically lowering your sugar consumption while boosting your fibre intake at the same time. Zero Sugar Diet requires lots of whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole, unprocessed grains; plenty of lean, healthy, satisfying, sugar-free foods like eggs, turkey, chicken, and fish; and just the right amount of sugar-free fats, like guacamole. With the dishes here — a sampling of a full day’s worth of food courtesy of Zero Sugar Diet (Ballantine Books) — you’ll replace simple carbs with high-fibre foods and see your belly starting to flatten out within…

pasta from the

Rejoice, fellas: You needn’t banish your favourite bowl of gloppity goodness to cheat days, or — even more depressing — load your go-to sauce on some underwhelming pasta understudy (see: “whole wheat”, anything labelled “gluten-free”).Easy-to-make spiralised vegetables — whole veggies sliced into spaghetti-like threads — can turn the tuber or legume of your choice into a to-die-for Italian feast. Unlike flour-based pastas, noodles made of squash, beets, sweet potatoes, et al, are low in calories, high in smart carbs/fibre, super filling (because of their water content), and won’t spike your blood sugar. Best of all, with the right sauce, they’re flat-out tasty as hell. Squash spaghetti! (And other great plant pastas) More than 20 veggies can be spiralised. Here, the six we love most. SWEET POTATO TASTE: Honeylike; makes sauces pop HIGH IN: Vitamins A,…

two rights and a wrong

A pot that takes your pasta seriously Not all pasta pots are created equal: Our biggest pet peeve is a too-short drainer insert that doesn’t fit enough noodles for a group. The Legend Euro Chef Stainless-Steel 24cm Stockpot, however, is the right size and has a clear lid so you can see what’s up and the 8.5L capacity is perfect for preparing large meals. It’s also dishwasher safe with cool-touch handles. A smart, affordable spiralizer The Humble and Mash quick prep spiralizer has a unique multi-blade system allowing you to create different types of noodles with three blades to choose from: ribbon, thin spiral and thicker spiral. You can quickly and easily enjoy endless creative possibilities using marrows, carrots, potatoes, apples, beetroot and much more. Nobody’s favourite way to cut pizza Look, we love kitchen…
