the sexy sugar free vegan coobook!

oh boy oh boy, nancy chalmers from wolf and willow has just released her new cookbook, the sexy sugar free vegan! i’ve introduced this project to you before, and it’s been so fun watching it grow over the last year. nancy is one talented chef and it seems as though every recipe i try from her becomes my new favorite!

what is the sexy sugar free vegan project? if you’re familiar with nancy, you’ll know that she quit sugar last june, and shortly after started the sexy sugar free vegan project. at first, it was more of a personal project, but she started photographing her recipes and sharing them on wolf and willow. the response for more delicious sugar free recipes was overwhelming, so the project grew and grew until finally, an e-cookbook was born! inside you’ll find all the most popular recipes, as well as some new ones, along with some recipes collected from bloggers (like me!), fellow health coaches, vegan foodies and sugar free chefs.

why quit sugar? while nancy goes into depth on why (and how) to quit sugar in the cookbook, here’s the short and sweet of it: it makes you feel amazing! here are just a few things you’ll most likely experience from quitting sugar:

- a ridiculous increase in natural energy (no need for coffee anymore)
– a freakish increase in cognitive function and creativity
– radical improvement in immune function (never get sick anymore)
– gorgeous skin and hair (look younger)
– better, deeper sleep (have sweeter dreams)
– no more food cravings, like, ever

the sexy sugar free vegan project

my friend nancy from wolf and willow and i have had similar revelations over the past few years. mine having to do with becoming vegan and cutting out gluten, her’s having to do with becoming vegan and cutting out sugar. both of which have produced radical improvements in our health, minds and well being!

i’m super inspired by nancy’s latest sexy sugar free vegan project. it’s getting back to the basics- eating whole foods that are plant based AND sugar free. with benefits ranging from better sleep to an increase in energy, it’s definitely worth looking in to. check out this post to read more about quitting sugar, but in a nutshell americans eat 130 pounds of sugar a year. that’s up from about 20 pounds in 1820. THAT’S a lot of unneeded sugar!
