I Quit Sugar – Sarah Wilson- Simpilicious 306 sugar-free recipes

I Quit Sugar – Sarah Wilson

Well Sarah Wilson had a great book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook published 2 Jan 2014, now out in paperback for £4.99.

Sarah followed this up with I Quit Sugar for Life: Your fad-free wholefood wellness code and cookbook published 8 May 2014, also available in paperback now for £5.00.

But the best of all has just been published I Quit Sugar: Simplicious (£9.99 at the moment) – an excellent and very detailed book.

As the Amazon review says:

“Sarah Wilson, bestselling author of I Quit Sugar, taught the world how to quit sugar in eight weeks, then how to quit sugar for life, incorporating mindful, sustainable, whole food practices. Now with I Quit Sugar: Simplicious she strips back to the essentials, simply and deliciously. She shows us:

* How to shop, cook and eat without sugar and other processed foods
* How to buy in bulk, freeze and preserve, with ease and without waste
* How to use leftovers with flair

All three hundred and six recipes – from guilt-free sweet treats to one-pot wonders and abundance bowls brimming with nutrients – expand our knowledge of age-old kitchen processes and tend to our profound need to be creative with food.

Drawing on the latest nutrition research and kitchen hacks, this is the ultimate cooking guide for those who want sugar out of their life and are ready to embrace the life-affirming, health-giving, planet saving simpliciousness of real food.”

Book Description:

From the bestselling author of I Quit Sugar, the ultimate cooking guide for those who want sugar out of their life and are ready to embrace the health-giving simpliciousness of real food.

About the Author:

Sarah Wilson is an international bestselling Australian author and entrepreneur. She is the former editor of Cosmopolitan magazine and was one of the hosts of the first series of MasterChef Australia, the highest rating show in Australian TV history. She is the author of international bestsellers I Quit Sugar and I Quit Sugar for Life.
Sarah blogs on philosophy, anxiety, minimalism, toxin-free living and anti-compulsion on her website. She lives in Sydney, Australia.

This is an excellent piece of work! It is really alot of labour and effort to produce such a detailed and very comprehensive volume on how to eat Simply but heathily.

If you want to be healthy, live an active and long life – buy this book – it is as SIMPLE as that!

This is not an occasion to say pass on what could be life-changing – have a look at the book (in Amazon) and the reviews for a great set of comments and explanation of the scope of the book. The book is very detailed (lots of ideas) and does require application to prepare all the different preserves, frozen treats, use of herbs, grains, smoothies, soups, shortcrust pastries, pies, salad, tacos, pot stews, miso, slaw, noodles, cakes, omelletes, dosas, toasties.

How to buy in bulk, save money, prepare in advance…. all good stuff!

But the bottom-line is the food is very, very healthy and like everything in life, you don’t get something ofr nothing: in other words – to be healthy we need to apply effort, to the food we eat, the exercise we take, the sleep we need.

Easier said than done.

I hope you have a look at Sarah Wilson’s wonderful book.

As a a proof of the efficacy of these recipes – try the Chicken Bone Broth – it really does heal as you eat/drink it.

As an alternative try the new Marks & Spencer soup range with roast chicken broth:

  • Chicken & vegetable soup
  • Chicken & super grain soup
  • Chicken, mushroom & rice soup

and see if you feel 100% better afterwards. This is what Sarah’s book can offer us too!
