Hip hooray! The I Quit Sugar Cookbook is available, like, *now*…

Posted on May 18th, 2012

It’s here! And I’m so glad you’ve been patient.

As you might have gathered I’ve written (and whisked, flipped, baked and roasted) up a sugar-free ecookbook, to follow on from I Quit Sugar: A Sweet 8-Week Program. It’s a behemoth of a book: more than 108 recipes of nutritious, easy, sweet, whole-food eating ideas. It’s been a labour of love and much taste-testing. It’s been a team effort and an experience that has humbled me rather a lot (so many people wanted to just…help me and be a part of this crazy thing).

Anyway, I’m really hoping you’ll like it. I’ve written it based on the feedback I got from so many of you as you quit sugar and did the IQS waltz with me over the past 15 months. So it includes only the recipes you’re all wanting help with, namely:

  • sweet substitutes: clever snacks that you can make for on the run
  • sweet pacifiers: desserts and sweet treats that use safe sweeteners
  • breakfast ideas: for kids + everyone else
  • meals that can help you go through the detox period
  • kids’ treats…

I’ve banged in more content by providing links to lots more recipes and ideas, some stellar contributions from some of our favourite food folk, some very whacky widgets that help you convert amounts and do up shopping lists…and…oh…you’ll just have to click through to the ordering page to learn more.

Or just buy the thing.

Which you can do by clicking this little button below.

*NOTE: the cookbook is currently available as a PDF. If you were hoping for an eReader version, please feel free to enjoy the PDF for now, and all eReader versions will automatically be sent to you before Monday 21st May.

here’s some of the contributors:

Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth needs little introduction. But perhaps you haven’t checked out her cookbook Notes From My Kitchen Table yet? With a breezy and generous spirit, similar to the vibe of her site Goop, she shares 150 of her favourite recipes, how she involves her kids in cooking, and balances healthy food with homemade treats.

 

Maggie Beer
Maggie is a legend and arguably Australia’s best-loved food personality. We met at a Happiness and It’s Causes conference where I was chairing and Maggie was talking about food and happiness. She’s a fan of whole food eating and her cookbooks – includingMaggie’s Farm, Maggie’s Orchard, Maggie’s Table, Maggie’s Harvest, Maggie’s Kitchen, and her most recent, Verjuice Cookbook – reflect her earthy values. She’s the recipient of Senior Australian of the Year 2010 and South Australian of the Year 2011 awards, and is a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) 2012. Check out her line of products.


Mark Sisson
Mark is a California-based blogger and health guru. His site Mark’s Daily Apple is the go-to joint for Paleo living. Mark’s Primal Blueprint cookbook is available here and here.

 

here’s a few things some folk are already saying about it:

“Sarah Wilson’s “I Quit Sugar Cookbook” is probably one of the more important food and lifestyle books I’ve read. Her research is meticulous and informed yet written with a positive, warm and humorous voice. Sarah’s love of food shows in her delicious, innovative and easy recipes, which are a perfect companion to my own non-boombah world! But it’s Sarah’s basic message that counts and one I totally share; you can live well, and eat well without sugar.” 

Jane Kennedy - writer, producer, director, actress and foodie.

“Sarah’s put gourmet back into nutrition. Her well balanced understanding in the therapeutic value of food, personal sugar quitting journey and inventive mind, has lead to the creation of these fabulous eats. This ebook is welcomed with open arms. Sarah is truly an inspiration and a gift to the wellness industry.”

Nat Kringoudis - Doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncturist, natural fertility educator and blogger. 

“Sarah’s ingenious tips and delicious recipes ensure an easy landing to a sugar-free life. You won’t look back!”

Maria Laitinen – prop stylist and food blogger at Scandi Foodie

    Thanks Sarah – have spent a fair bit of time reading it and getting a basic shopping list together. Going to let my daughter choose the first couple we try. Have started two weeks of slow withdrawal and can feel the difference after just a couple of days. Can’t wait for the e-link so we can easily have it up in the kitchen.

    I LOVE your beautiful cookbook, Sarah. It contains a lot of your personality, which can only be a good thing! As someone allergic to eggs, I was wondering if you or any readers might have some grain-free replacement ideas. Obviously not for the very egg-heavy recipes, but for the recipes that contain one or two eggs in a large mixture, for example.
    One more little thing, sorry to be a negative nancy, but it’s a shame you referred to your book as a “tomb” on page 106, rather than a “tome”! Spellcheck error??

    [Reply]

    Kate Reply:

    I’m also struggling to find things to cook for someone hugely allergic to eggs (and also wheat, nuts, rice and garlic). It had been impossible to find any sort of book or even blog that accommodates such a painfully restrictive diet! There are so many egg recipes in the IQS cookbook-is there anything that they can be replaced with?

    With the vegan conversion of the pumpkin pie, there’s no suggestion of what to replace the 3 eggs with. Are we supposed to just leave them out? Would that even work? Thanks again. I really do adore the book and I’m about to go shopping for ingredients..

    thank you for this wonderful gift sarah.
    thank you for sharing your wisdom and ideas and also thank you to those that contributed.
    i am more spiritually whole, rational, fun and at peace when i am not inhaling sugar and transforming into the biggest bitch of all time.
    if anyone here suffers from endometriosis, please cut out sugar (berries are still good) and i promise you will be in less pain/clot less/cry less, etc.

    hi sarah,

    something i’ve been meaning to ask for a while, and now that i’m browsing through your STUNNING cookbook i’ve been reminded —

    you recommend natvia often, which contains stevia and erythritol. so i guess that means you’ve decided that erythritol is safe as a sweetener? can you quickly point me in the direction of how you came to this conclusion? i was researching it myself a while back and couldn’t find any info on whether it, as a sugar alcohol, had any impact on insulin levels or if it fed candida (i am aware it has zero calories).

    thank you and thanks again for your cookbook. it’s so beautiful!

    Hi -

    I was going to pre-order but after klicking on the button my computer crashed. So when I reloaded the page the offer price was no longer shown, only the regular $19 price.

    What can I do? It should still be available, right?

    Thanks, marita

    Today I cooked…
    coconutty granola (yummy with poppy seeds, pecans, walnuts, handful of oats, coconut oil and shredded coconut) which I had with yoghurt and stewed rhubarb, my own version of spelt and polenta corn, leek and fetta muffins, a green ‘smoothie’ concoction, a green soup with adzuki beans that I poached an egg in, the divine chia pudding with almond milk and raspberries and a pumpkin and spinch crustless quiche – phew! Freezer is stocked for the week and I am happy! Thanks Sarah!

    Thanks so much for this wonderful cookbook! I have a few substitution questions, hope you can help me.

    With the Berry Yoghurt Smoothie, can one taste raw egg in it? I am not an egg fan, however I am happy to try it if the egg doesn’t ruin the taste.

    With the Choc Berry Mud, what can I use in place of Avocado? I don’t like avo, can you taste it in the final product? Would coconut creme work?

    [Reply]

    Jodi Reply:

    Hi Rebekah
    I think Avocado is used because it is so mild tasting, you shouldn’t be able to taste it. I’m going to make it tonight, so I’ll try and remember to post how it turns out

    Personally I would like to print it out in colour at either Officeworks or somewhere similar and then get them to bind it (they also do binding too). But at 88c per page, and with the book being over 109 pages, I may have to look elsewhere… Please consider publishing this in hardcover, Sarah!

    It may get dirty when using it as a cookbook, but I’m thinking of putting it in one of those plastic sleeves we used to use as book covers in primary school (the clear ones) similar to this… http://www.loveyourbook.co.uk/small-book-covers/height-119mm-max-length-305mm.html

    Also, if you do revise the edition at all in the future, Sarah. David Gillespie’s name is spelled wrong at the back of the book.
