I’ve written some books
  • This One Wild and Precious Life
    This is my latest book, available for preorder in Australia, NZ and the US now.
    This One Wild and Precious Life is a soul's journey through the massive complexities of climate change, coronavirus, the racial inequalities and our disconnection from what matters…and back to life. As in, big, wild, vibrant, connected life. I hike around the world for three years to share this latest adventure, following in the footsteps of Nietzsche, my favourite poets and sharing wild, hopeful wisdoms and vibrant solutions to arrive at a true path through the despair…to our better world. (I also share the hike details!). This One Wild Precious Life is published August 30, 2020 (Pan Macmillan Australia), November 2020 (US, Harper Collins).
  • I Quit Sugar: Simplicious Flow
    Flow is “not a normal cookbook”. Sure, it features more than 348 recipes and a showering of hacks and tricks (for making your own Keep Cup!). However instead of isolated recipes it features complete meal plans with shopping lists, where you use up every last bit of food to make what I call a “capsule cook”…a good 3-4 days of meals or easy lunches or a dinner party for 6. In one hit. Also, all meals are one-pan. Check out chapters such as “How to use up a tray of mangoes” and my recipe for Banana Skin Cake. My publisher calls it, "It is a manifesto for change, a challenge to us all to take charge of our kitchen, our expenditure, our time, our own health and the health of the planet. "

  • first, we make the beast beautiful
    This book came out in February 2017 and became a New York Times bestseller and #1 Amazon bestseller when it was published in the US and UK in April 2018. My publisher says: "Sarah pulls at the thread of accepted definitions of anxiety, and unravels the notion that it is a difficult, dangerous disease that must be medicated into submission. Ultimately, she re-frames anxiety as a spiritual quest rather than a burdensome affliction, a state of yearning that will lead us closer to what really matters.” Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck says: “The best book on anxiety I’ve ever read”. Professor Patrick McGorry AO: "... at once a nomadic journey, a cri de coeur and a compendium of hard-won wisdom …" Now available in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, China, Lithuania, Hungary and France.

  • I Quit Sugar: Simplicious
    This book is fat. It contains 308 recipes and is geared toward sustainable cooking and eating. It’s all about food waste, people! The recipes are all geared toward saving money, the planet, time, palaver and washing up (ergo 80 per cent are one-pan meals). The recipes work with secondary cuts of meat, cheap vegetables, leftovers and the most nutrient-dense foods you can find. The favourite recipes that make it to Instagram (with the #Simplicious tag) are my Chocolate Cardamom Ganache Tart, all the good-for-your-gut gummies, and the Leftovers Chapter. PS. Even the scraps from the photography shoots were repurposed…into soup, pestos and staff lunches. No food was wasted in the making of this book!

  • I Quit Sugar: Healthy Breakfast Cookbook
    In my travels, I think I'm asked at every turn, by journalists or at public talks I give, what I eat for breakfast. I think it stumps a great many people how you can eat breakfast without sugar. Which is fair enough. Of all the meals in the day, breakfast is the most laden with crappy white stuff: cheap carbs and sugar. So how do I eat a good breakfast? I switch to a savoury state of mind, I eat veggies, I #JERF, I eat leftovers and I eat for my gut.

  • I Quit Sugar: One-Pot Wonders
    Pretty much all of my food philosophies, cooking practices and eating approaches come together in the notion of the one-pot meal. Quitting sugar means quitting processed food, which means eating REAL food, which means you have to cook. But cooking doesn't have to be complicated. It can be simple. And cheap. And it should be. This is where this book kicks in. All the recipes use the whole ingredient. A bunch of our basics use up any of the leftovers and the simplicity of creating dinner in just one step means we all cook more and get through the ingredients sitting at the back of the fridge.

  • I Quit Sugar: Healthy Family Meals Cookbook
    Honestly, cooking shouldn't be fancy and expensive. It should have maximum flavour and flow... Mum didn't cook fancy nor expensive food. It was all about economy - of flavour, time and dollars. She'd use budget cuts of meat, make everything in the one big old cast-iron pot, bulk things out with starchy veggies and ensure we had three serves of greens with every meal. These principles, in many ways, guide this book.

  • I Quit Sugar: Slow Cooker Cookbook
    I quit sugar... and fell in love with my slow cooker. Seriously, slow cooking is my answer to eating well. I'm all about dense nutrition. A slow-cooker extracts the best of my food without destroying the enzymes. It also extracts maximum flavour - particularly good when trying to convert friends or family to a more nutrient-dense way of eating.

  • I Quit Sugar: Kids Cookbook
    Eating sugar free is about abundance and 'crowding out'. It's not about banning 'bad' foods, but instead focusing on filling your kids' plates with so much yummy (and nutritious) food that there simply isn't enough room left for the sugary stuff. It's about eating less ingredients and packet free and perhaps, most importantly... eating sugar free is about being gentle and kind. We don't do harsh edicts. We make this fun and positive. We ease our kids into this, encouraging good habits.
