Recipes – Get in shape for the summer with Joe Wicks @thebodycoach this Sunday in The Mail on Sunday 21 May a free 24 page recipe guide of delicious low-carb recipes free. Based on Joe’s new book he is back with Cooking for Family & Friends, where healthily food can be fun and inclusive for everyone at every occasion. Forget restrictive diets or low-calories, instead get to spend time cooking for more than one or two people.
Cooking for Family and Friends is a beautifully photographed collection of Joe’s easy favourites and crowd-pleasers, such as Roast Chicken with Celeriac Mash and Bacon Greens, BBQ Ribs with Dirty Corn, and Tandoori Chicken Thighs with Chapattis. All the recipes are big on flavour and packed with the hero ingredients you need to impress your mates, fuel your workout and burn fat.
The Body Coach, Joe wicks. Can we apply the Lean Shape Shift Sustain series of guides by Joe Wicks for a longer healthier life?
After a period of reflection, I have been working toward a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and health as the basis for enjoying the choice of food we eat.
The basis for a healthy lifestyle is to achieve optimum health, a happy and productive life for when we are young and into our later years.
When we are young we don’t worry (or know much about) the effects of ageing. Pains, aches and gradual wear – that can cause serious disease – is not something younger people normally have to concern themselves about.
So as I get older the need to avoid the usual ‘wear and tear’ of daily life, knowing how to help to repair my body, keep well and have an enjoyable life is something worth making changes to achieve.
Nothing comes easily in this regard and we need to research, plan and act on a lifestyle that will help us achieve these goals. However it is worth it.
Where to start?
One very popular and trend setting ‘guru’ is Joe Wicks. He suggests a combination of meals and exercises to help you attain a healthy body. For really good videos on You Tube see The Body Coach.
Before setting out on a plan such as Joe Wicks provides, please ensure that you are able to cope with the exercises and able to make the food choice changes required.
However without seeing food from a different perspective – we cannot and will not make the changes necessary for good health. Without realising it, what we eat is deeply ingrained in each of us. We tend to eat what we like – as opposed to what is good for us.
Small changes in the choice and combination of foods combined with the correct exercise can provide significant health benefits.
I will continue a series on health, food and exercise over the next few blogs.
Some additional health and exercise books currently showing promise:

About : A Kitchen Chronicle. My latest book and the second volume of The Kitchen Diaries.
A collection of notes, essays, jottings and recipes compiled over the last three or four years. As you might expect from the title, this is a very personal book, written and photographed in my own kitchen. Not a television tie-in, but many of the recipes are those from the BBC1 series Simple Suppers and Simple Cooking.
Thanks for reading this article, enjoy the book and the show!
Congratulations to Gordon Ramsay, this has been an excellent series and great cook book.

Well the series has come to an end in the UK and is being broadcast now in Canada. I think it has been received very well indeed by almost everyone. Certainly yes – Gordon is back and Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course the cookbook has become a best seller for the past couple of months and for Christmas. The new cook book partners closely the recipes found on the TV series (now completed airing on Channel 4). A guide to the episodes – recipes and video clips can be seen listed below.

The 20 episodes of 30 minutes in Series One, at 5pm – 5.30pm Channel 4 and HD, 6pm – 6.30pm Ch4 +1 are now completed. Each episode teaches about a different area of cooking.
Back ground to Gordon Ramsay – Gordon has 25 years of cooking expertise and is well placed to provide us with his take on what an up to date and with-it cookery course should be. Consider the worldwide chain of restaurants, the Tante Marie School of cookery – a culinary academy of excellence and the career development opportunities Gordon offers. Together with his cooking shows, travel to the US and his widespread talent. This all points to an exciting world of cooking and reveals that Gordon Ramsay’s business acumen and cooking ability is massive! See the new restaurants in Doha and Las Vegas as some of his recent developments and consider the restaurants from Italy to USA. See restaurant list below as a guide.
The new series is a serious hit, view the episodes and see what you think. We can pick the episodes we are interested in individually or try and keep up with the complete series.
Gordon’s cook book provides home cooks with the confidence and knowledge to get into the kitchen and get the oven on. It is a reference book of great detail and all of Gordon’s skills and experience is brought to the series and the cookbook to help save us time and produce great – no – wonderful food. As it is tied into the TV series on CH4 and can offer guidance on how to bake, roast and slow cooking, also, breakfast, brunches and suppers. There is so much more…. as below…
Gordon himself says “I want to teach you how to cook good food at home. By stripping away all the hard graft and complexity, anyone can produce mouth-watering recipes. Put simply, I’m going to show you how to cook yourself into a better cook.”
