Recipes featured in this excerpt: Stuffed Poblanos with Red Sauce, Mexican Skillet Eggs, Slow-Roasted Tomatoes, and Scone Tarts. Based on the James Beard Award–winning blog The One-Block Diet, this all-in-one home gardening, do-it-yourself guide and cookbook shows you how to transform a backyard or garden into a self-sufficient locavore’s paradise. When Margo True and her fellow staffers at Northern California–based Sunset magazine walked around the grounds of their Menlo Park office, they saw more than just a lawn and some gardens. Instead, they saw a fresh, bountiful food source, the makings for intrepid edible projects, and a series of seasonal feasts—all just waiting to happen. The One-Block Feast is the story of how True and her team took an inspired idea and transformed it into an ambitious commitment: to create four feasts over the course of a year, using only what could be grown or raised in their backyard-sized plot. She candidly shares the group’s many successes and often humorous setbacks as they try their hands at chicken farming, cheese making, olive pressing, home brewing, bee keeping, winemaking, and more. Grouped into gardening, project, and recipe guides for each season, The One-Block Feast is a complete resource for planning an eco-friendly kitchen garden; making your own pantry staples for year-round cooking and gifts; raising bees, chickens, and even a cow; and creating made-from-scratch meals from ingredients you’ve grown yourself. Chapters are organized by season, each featuring a planting plan and crop-by-crop instructions, an account of how that season’s projects played out for the Sunset team, and a multicourse dinner menu composed of imaginative, appealing, and ultra-resourceful vegetarian recipes, such as: Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Chard and Sage Brown Butter • Egg and Gouda Crepes • Whole Wheat Pizzas with Roasted Vegetables and Homemade Cheeses • Fresh Corn Soup with Zucchini Blossoms • Braised Winter Greens with Preserved Lemons and Red Chile • Summer Lemongrass Custards • Honey Ice Cream Generously illustrated and easy to follow, this ultimate resource for today’s urban homesteader will inspire you to take “eating local” to a whole new level.To read more about The One-Block Feast or Margo True, please visit Crown Publishing Group at www.crownpublishing.com.

Lose that Wheat Belly with the 7-Day Gluten-Free Diet Plan What is a gluten free diet? Although similar to the wheat belly diet where wheat is avoided, the gluten free diet also eliminates the use of rye and barley. Why gluten free? Perhaps you are suffering from a wheat allergy, celiac disease or simply wanting to cleanse your system or even embark on a weight loss diet. There are many reasons, including childhood problems such as autism and ADHD, but these are more complex than just practising a gluten free lifestyle. The desire for following a diet of this kind is growing on a daily basis, for all the above reasons. Many people are under the misconception that a gluten free diet plan will be restrictive, not tasty and hard to follow. You couldn’t be more wrong! Other than wheat free baking, the list of foods available to you is vast – you will be able to pick and choose from a huge variety of foods that will keep your interest at optimum level and you will never feel that you are missing anything. Not only that, all those nasty symptoms you experience with gluten sensitivity will disappear quite rapidly. Most commonly, the symptoms are gastrointestinal, but those suffering with a severe gluten intolerance problem will find that many other parts of their body or system react violently to the presence of gluten in any foodstuffs. Get into the habit of checking every label when shopping. Items marked ‘gluten-free’ should be relatively safe, but it does not hurt to still check. Quite a few products that are purportedly gluten free, may contain a trace that could affect you. Plan your outing to the supermarket, and if at all possible, try to shop separately for your gluten-free produce. Make sure to get the free bonus of a printable shopping list to help before heading out to the grocery store. The bonuses also include two additional recipes (Braised Lamb Shanks with Butternut Squash and Gluten-Free Flour Mix) and a free printable meal plan. You can get them here: http://gotorecipecookbooks.com/gluten-free-1/ The wheat free recipes in this book are meals made simple and have been kept slightly below the recommended daily allowance (RDA) in terms of calorie intake, to allow you to have a 'little more' food on certain courses, or an extra small snack. If you are trying to lose that wheat belly as well as cut out gluten for health purposes, this will enable you to have a slow but steady weight loss without feeling too hungry, nothing dramatic. But do feel free to move the recipes around to accommodate your tastes, whilst still keeping on or below the RDA. Don't feel like you have to give up on your favorite foods. With recipes like the Thai Steak Salad, One Pot Beef Stew and Chocolate Almond Pudding, you can still eat most foods without feeling guilty. Inside this book are the following types of meals: Breakfast - 7 recipes Snacks - 7 recipes Lunch - 7 recipes Dinner - 7 recipesDessert - 7 recipes These recipes are organized to help you plan a full week of gluten-free meals for the family. It includes gluten free baking as well as recipes that require no cooking at all. Download the book to get started now.
