Sarah Di Lorenzo's Iron-Rich Salad recipe

My iron rich salad is honestly one of my favourite recipes. Iron is a really important mineral involved in various bodily functions, including the transport of oxygen, and it’s essential for providing us with energy, something we all love!
This salad will provide you with 23% of your recommended daily intake of iron and the Vitamin C-rich lemon juice in the dressing will ensure that your body utilises it well.
Enjoy with grilled chicken breast, cubed tofu or tuna for a fabulous energy-rich meal that is completely delicious.

Olive oil

The Healthy Way to Lose 10 Kilos in 10 Weeks (& keep them off forever!)

Created by clinical nutritionist Sarah Di Lorenzo, The 10:10 Diet is a 10-week meal and exercise plan aimed at helping you lose 10 kilos and keep the weight off in the healthiest way possible.

Want to lose 10 kilos in 10 weeks and keep the weight off forever? Clinical nutritionist Sarah Di Lorenzo shows you how in this easy-to-follow program and clearly explains the science and logic used to create it. Drawing from her own experiences, Sarah explains the factors that contribute to weight gain – stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy food options, mental and societal roadblocks – and provides tips on how to eliminate or respond more effectively to overcome the obstacles standing in the way of weight loss.

Rejecting the notion of fad diets, Sarah has crafted a manageable, achievable program aimed at people with busy lifestyles.

Praise for Sarah Di Lorenzo
'Sarah showed me how to do something I hadn’t been able to do in years… lose those last, stubborn few kilos that annoyed and frustrated me. She gave me a healthy plan to stick to, with no tiresome calories counting, just good food. And the best thing was, it could be changed here and there as my days suddenly got busy. It was like having a little friend in my phone, with the perfect eating plan and then the back-ups in case life got in the way. I can’t recommend her highly enough.Natalie Barr, journalist and TV presenter. 

'I want you to know that with Sarah’s help, you WILL reach your goal weight. But more than that – you WILL keep it off. Plus, your mind WILL be clear, and you WILL have energy in abundance. Put simply, you WILL feel amazing.' Monique Wright, journalist and TV presenter

'Over the years I’ve bought every health-kick book there is – macrobiotic, vegan, ‘eating right for my blood type’ – some I barely made past the first day, others the first... page! Now, thanks to Sarah, I’ve finally found what works for me! Her detox approach is a celebration of food and feeling your best. No punishment, restriction or radical plans. Instead, a clear roadmap to restoring your best health, based on actual science (thanks to the countless medical studies Sarah loves to read). The most surprising result – I’m still following its principles long after my 10 weeks are done. The other books are binned; Sarah’s plan has become a way of life.' Sally Bowrey, journalist and TV presenter
