Madeleine McCann’s mother reveals all ...
This is an intimate account from Kate McCann on the disappearance – and continuing search – for her daughter, Madeleine. Three-year-old Madeleine went missing in 2007 when her British family were holidaying in Portugal. This case caused global controversy as The Daily Mail reported that Madeleine was left unsupervised in a ground floor bedroom while her parents ate at a restaurant approximately 120 metres away. Kate said, “There are several different reasons as to why I finally came to the decision with my husband Gerry to write and publish this book … Every penny we raise through its sales will be spent on our search for Madeleine. Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl.”

Here are some suggestions to get the most flavour from your food, without using added fat or sugar: Cayenne Pepper – just a pinch livens up chilli, squash and salad dressings. Consuming cayenne may help suppress your appetite. Cinnamon – Sprinkle this sweet spice in porridge, hot cereals or coffee. A study reported that as little as one gram of cinnamon reduced blood glucose and cholesterol levels in type 2 diabetics. Horseradish – Ditch the gravy and go for horseradish to enliven meat. Or purée it with cottage cheese, along with garlic and pepper, for a healthy vegetable dip or potato topping.” – Extract from The 17 Day Diet
