The Jane Plan Diet Book Launch

Good evening everyone, my name's Ann Lawrence,I'm Jane Michell's – can you hear us? – Jane's commissioning editor at Piatkus books, which is part of the Little Brand book group.

We're absolutely delighted to have Jane'sbook on our list, it really is a fantastic approach to losing weight.

I think Jane is the best example, she's justa fantastic advertisement and it's lovely to see everybody here tonight supporting her.

I'm going to hand over to Jane now, to saya few words.

>>Obviously it's a massive, massive thankyou to every single person here, because there's not one person in this room who has not contributedin some way.

So thanks firstly to my amazing team at JanePlan.

They are incredible – I even got a bunch of flowers from them today, I was so overwhelmed.

All the girl's in the office clubbed together – it was just incredible – so I really appreciate your loyalty and dedication and the long hours you put in, so thank youso much.

To everyone who's contributed, Ann's a fantasticpublisher, and to Heather who bullied me into doing this book wherever you are.

I have notime, I said – I can't do it.

To Caroline Rise, an amazing friend, author,journalist, thank you for everything you've done.

Of course to Jane Garten, who played an enormousrole, we met every Friday, sometimes more, to pen the book.

She put heart and soul intoit, so I can't recommend her more highly.

Of course our amazing clients because JanePlan would not be what it is without our clients and they're an incredible, incredible bunchof people.

I really admire and am very close to all of our clients.

Even though we're so distant now because thereare so many of them! There are literally thousands and thousands of them.

They certainly spanthe country and to a degree, they span the world, as well.

To all the amazing publicity we've had, GoodHousekeeping recently voted us as Britain's best diet delivery service which is amazing.

Lots of other press, and to all my friends,I'm sorry I've been so absent for four years.

I'd love to pretend I'm not going to be foranother four, but, I might be.

But most particularly, to my family, who havejust been incredible, I am really very, very absent and they just carry on! So I'd liketo thank my three free range children, and to Jane Plan.

It's the book that's going to stop any woman,ever having to say again: does my bum look big in this?.

Jane Plan Diet- Delicious Dinners

Jane Plan Diet- Delicious Dinners

Jane Plan Diet- Delicious Dinners

The one thing we all look forward to at theend of a long, hard day is a delicious dinner.

So today, in the Jane Plan kitchen, we areputting together lots and lots of different dinners, all of which are part of our deliciousrange of food.

I'm holding here the chickpea tagine, whichis one of our vegetarian dinners.

We also have a great range of dishes including meat,jam, pork and chicken.

This is the beef and mushroom stroganoff.

Right now, I have a treat ready, which is the lasagne.

I've actually cooked it in the oven, but ifyou want to do it in the microwave, it's not a problem at all.

So I'll just get that out.

It's one of those real treats, I think.

Cominghome to comfort food like lasagne.

As I said I just did this in the oven, butreally, if you want to do it in the microwave, it really is just a couple of minutes.

Adding some fresh tomato, topping it withsome basil, all of it makes a really delicious meal.

With the lasagne, we normally have ours inthe office with just a simple salad.

This looks like I've spent ages on it, but really it's just a bought packet of salad,some mixed green leaves, a few tomatoes and spring onions.

Sometimes when you're watching your weight,it's really hard to know what to add to salads.

And people often say, what salad dressingcan I use? What we don't want you doing is smotheringeverything in olive oil.

Delicious as olive oil is.

A little teaspoon of balsamic, a little bitof salt and pepper, tiny bit of olive oil if you'd like to.

One of my favourite things to do with a saladis to just simply add some pomegranate seeds.

It really lightens it up, they are delicious,full of nutrients, it's an alternative dressing.

If you don't want to have salad to accompanyyour evening meal, there are lots of alternatives.

So right now I'm just frying some vegetables.

I haven't spent hours chopping these, I just picked up a stir fry package from my local supermarket.

And because Jane Plan is all about makinglosing weight easy, we want to encourage you to do this, so be adventurous with your vegetables.

You don't have to stir fry of course, youcan steam, you can roast, you can do whatever you like.

The great thing about stir fry vegetables,it really allows you to get a rainbow on your plate, which means a variety of different colours,and a variety of different nutrients.

We have quite a lot of spicy foods on theplan, because we know you like them.

One of my absolute favourites is the thaichicken curry.

In a rush? Just pop off the top, pop it in the microwave,literally two minutes later while you're stir frying, it will be ready.

Lots of delicious chicken, really authenticsauce.

We also have a fragrant chicken curry, the chicken with coconut ginger and turmeric.

We also have the chicken korma.

What I loveabout this chicken korma is it's really quite a substantial portion.

We've done this with some steamed courgettes,peas and beans.

And we've added a tiny bit of coriander.

Some of our dishes are deliberately low incarbohydrates, because we know that you like low carbohydrate dishes but that, of courseis not everybody.

Some people do like to have rice, or pasta,in the evening, or even potatoes.

The great thing about the chicken korma isit does actually come with its own individual portion of rice.

If, however, you're more interested in followinga plan that is perhaps a little lower in carbohydrates, you're a little bit worried about adding pastaor rice, dishes like this chicken mascarpone.

Thisdish was literally done in a minute.

Pop it in the microwave, we've just made life sosimple here.

We know not everybody wants to stir fry, wantsto bake, and so we actually just added some frozen peas.

But to make it even more exciting, you couldadd some roasted vegetables, so again we've got the lovely concept going of a rainbowon your plate, different variety of flavours, a differenttexture of course because you've roasted these Roasted vegetables are one of those all timestaples, you can just chop up any of your favourites and pop them in the oven.

In fact, these today that we did earlier,which took about fifteen to twenty minutes in the oven, actually came out of a readyroasted tray.

Most of the major supermarkets do.

So if you want to make losing weight easy,convenient, healthy and delicious, do take advantage of some of the things around youthat will do that.

We're very conscious of course, that peopledon't want to go hungry on a diet and that's so important, so a lot of the meals are verysubstantial.

They're always calorie and portion controlled.

One of our favourites is the pork meatballs.

We've done it here with some spinach, some leeks, and added some chopped tomatoesas well.

If you're too busy for all of that, a sprig of basil will finish it off reallynicely.

We know from all of our clients that that'sone of the absolute favourites.

Everything I'm showing you here today is actuallywheat and gluten free, of course with the exception of the lasagne.

That's one of the principles that runs throughthe plan, we're trying very very hard to make all of our foods 'free from.

' In fact, in none of these dinners at all,are there any preservatives whatsoever.

We use a very unusual cooking method, calledsous vide cooking method, or very similar to sous vide.

It's becomingmore and more popular now where we seal the food in it's container.

All the ingredientsgo in the container.

The container 's then popped in a pressurecooker and heated to a high temperature which steams everything beautifully.

And that will keep it fresh until you're readyto eat it.

This one is the rich ragu with beef.

One of my personal favourites is this sweetpotato and lentil curry.

Great thing about sweet potatoes is that they're very low g.

I.

And you don't need to be following a vegetariandiet to enjoy a vegetarian food.

In fact, one of the great principles that we love iswhat we call the meat free Mondays.

So you might be a really keen meat-eater whichis fantastic, and you can have meat every day.

but it's wonderful to dedicate one day a weekjust to having no meat at all.

And because we have such a wide vegetarian selection, that's absolutely not a problem at all onthe plan.

I think the stir fry vegetables are pretty much ready.

What I will simply do is pop these onto aplate, and then you can pop your thai chicken curry or your chosen dish over the top.

No need for noodles, for rice, a lovely lowcarbohydrate nourishing and filling dinner.

What anyone needs, we've tried very hard toincorporate all sorts of food tastes in the range.

We have chicken, we have beef, we have pastadishes, we have a nice spicy range.

But we also have a very lovely classic Englishrange, such as chicken casserole and beef casserole.

Everythings calorie and portion controlled,so you really will reach your weight loss goals.

But most importantly, everythings absolutelydelicious.

So we hope you enjoy your Jane Plan dinner,and if you've got any questions at all about the sorts of fruit and vegetables you'd liketo add into the plan, or how best to cook the food, then obviouslyyou can always get in touch with us.

Thank you.
