Future-proof your life through your forties, fifties and beyond with these delicious, fuss-free recipes that restore, rejuvenate and revive.

Are you at a point in your life where health is becoming more of a priority? Are you confused by ever-changing headlines that contrive to make the simple act of eating a peril rather than a pleasure? The Midlife Kitchen has the answers.

Midlife is not a time to be concerned with food fads and foibles, but rather a glorious opportunity to wrest back control of your eating in the interests of health, happiness and a long life. Taste must certainly come first, but with health firmly snapping at its heels, underpinned by well-established nutritional common sense. Busy lives require simple, sustaining recipes that incorporate health-giving ingredients without too much fanfare or fuss. This book is not about 'clean-eating' or super foods, detoxing or restriction. Instead, it is about building up a balanced and diverse diet, with less sugar, better fat and good carbs.

Alongside each recipe is The Midlife Kitchen emblem, the star anise. With each of the eight seeds representing a specific Midlife Health category - such as Hormone Harmony; Mind, Memory, Mood; or Heart Health - authors Sam and Mimi are able to provide simple nutritional information. Health tips explain the benefits of certain ingredients, while 'Why We Love It' sections explore the advantages of cooking each dish. Midlife Must-Haves show how to create homemade essentials such as Midlife Grown-up Granola, Midlife Power Porridge and Midlife Sweetener.

From Seared Sirloin on Pan-Roasted Veg to The Mother of All Greek Salads, Best Lunch Wrap Ever to Three Fire Ginger Cake, the recipes in this book come together to create a vibrant menu bursting with mouth-watering flavours.

About the Author

Sam Rice's career has taken her from management consultant and travel business owner, to sommelier, wine columnist and more recently, food writer.

This book is not about clean eating or super foods, detoxing or restriction. Instead, it is about building up a balanced and diverse diet, with less sugar, better fat and good carbs. - Shepparton News

There are 80 recipes in the book, but in this instance I think the fascination is in the

information on how to store, cook (or not) and combine foods for maximum impact. - Mercury

Now, along comes a book written for the demographic that, all going well, we fit into for the longest time - midlife. - Hobart Mercury
