Australia' most trusted home cook is celebrating a fresher approach to eating.

These days we're bombarded with so many messages about what to eat more of and what to eat less of and what to give up altogether, it can all get a little confusing and, let's face it, overwhelming. When there are so many passing fads and extreme diets out there, it's a relief to turn to a voice of reason, Australia's bestselling and most trusted cook, Donna Hay, for a realistic, sustainable and more balanced approach to fresher, healthier eating.

Donna says: 'If there's one thing I've learned about myself, it's that I'm happiest when life is balanced. It rings true in all areas- work and play, friends and family, and, for me especially, food. Diets have never been my thing, I don't like the idea of anyone being on one! But I do love the way food can make me feel, uplifting me with energy, nourishing me with cosy goodness, or treating me with a little sweetness.

Life in Balance is about embracing food and all its benefits. Each chapter, from breakfast to baking, has simple recipes enriched with nature's superfoods - think leafy greens, bright fresh berries, creamy nuts and nourishing grains. Plus, I've profiled all my power pantry staples for you, like chia seeds, coconut sugar and raw cacao. Let this book help you find your own perfect balance, while enjoying every bite.'

In a gorgeous new user-friendly square paperback format, featuring tactile paper stock and stunning photography, Donna packs in a wealth of ideas and information that you can trust, and flavours and tastes that will inspire you. From new ideas for power dinners to tempting grills, from super-charged breakfasts to low-carb options, Life in Balance is full of super-satisfying recipes - nourishing, virtuous and delicious. And because we all need the occasional treat, there's also a few yummy better-for-you sweets.

The only kind of diet that works, after all, is the balanced diet - the one you can sustain long term. And when your life is in balance, you feel great and it shows - from the inside out.
