The popularity of the part-time vegetarian (flexitarian) diet - one that is largely vegetarian but occasionally includes poultry, meat and seafood - is growing. As meat and fish become more and more expensive and the health benefits of a vegetarian diet are well documented, The Part-Time Vegetarian taps into a growing trend of flexitarian eating. Rather than meat or fish taking centre stage, the recipes in this book showcase the often under-used vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, eggs and dairy foods - and show just how delicious and varied this way of eating can be. Organised by meal type, the book features chapters on Breakfasts & Brunches, Light Meals, Weekday Dinners, Weekend Cooking and Food for Sharing. The recipes are all vegetarian, but the majority include a Part-Time Variation, showing you how to include meat or fish if you feel like it. It's the perfect book for the casual vegetarian looking for a nutritious and environmentally intelligent way to eat, those who want to cater for a vegetarian, or the committed vegetarian who wants to try new recipes. The Part-Time Vegetarian makes vegetarian eating doable.

The common link between vegetarians and part-time vegetarians (flexitarians) is that they like to base their meals on vegetables. Whether this is for health, economic or moral reasons (or a combination of all three), the fact is a flexitarian diet – one that is largely vegetarian but occasionally includes poultry, meat and seafood – is growing in popularity and is a long-term trend that cannot go ignored. Let’s face it the flexitarian or semi-vegetarian diet is the way to go: meat and fish are becoming prohibitively expensive; our current consumption cannot be sustained in years to come; and the health benefits of a vegetarian diet are well documented. But while the number of vegetarians is significant, a study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that nearly two out of three vegetarians occasionally like to meat, chicken or fish. The Part-Time Vegetarian Cookbook shows just how delicious, adaptable and varied this way of eating can be. Rather than taking centre stage, meat or fish are not the main focus of the recipes, which value the often under-used and under-valued vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, eggs and dairy foods. The recipes are not about taking something away, however, but adding a new dimension and consequently widening and extending the homecook’s repertoire of dishes. Organised by meal type, The Part-Time Vegetarian Cookbook features chapters on Breakfasts & Brunches, Small Bites (snacks, lunches and light meals), Weekday Suppers, Weekend Cooking, Food for Sharing (entertaining, special occasion, celebrations and al fresco) and Something Sweet. The recipes are all vegetarian, but can easily be adjusted to suit non-vegetarians. From the Hardcover edition.

Actress and photographer Kris Carr thought she had a hangover, but a Jivamukti yoga class didn't provide its usual kick-ass cure. A visit to her doctor confirmed her “liver looked like Swiss cheese,” covered with cancerous tumors. She entered trench warfare (wearing cowboy boots into the MRI machine, no less), vowing, “Cancer needed a makeover and I was just the gal to do it!” She began writing and filming her journey, documenting her interactions with friends, doctors, alternative “quacks,” blind dates, and other women with cancer—sadly a growing group. These include hip, young women such as illustrator-author Marisa Acocella Marchetto (Cancer Vixen), Glamour writer-editor Erin Zammett (My So-Called Normal Life), MTV personality Diem Brown (Real World/Road Rules Challenge), model Sharon Blynn (founder, Bald Is Beautiful), and music manager Jackie Farry, among others. The Learning Channel broadcast the premiere of Carr's unforgettable documentary, Crazy Sexy Cancer on August 29, 2007. CRAZY SEXY CANCER TIPS gathers the lessons learned and advice offered from Carr's own journey, as well as the experiences of her cancer posse. Full-color photos accompany personal stories and candid revelations in this scrapbook of advice, warnings, and resources for the cancer patient. Chapters cover your changing social life, dating, sex, and appearance; essential health tips on how to boost your immune system; recipes; medical and holistic resources; and information on young survivor support groups. The resulting book is a warm, yet informative tool for any woman newly diagnosed with the disease and for those who love them.
