sexy sugar free vegan cookbook giveaway! (1)

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)

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!

A Healthier Hot Chocolate

January 23, 2012

Posted by in cooking ideas

I have tried so many homemade hot chocolate recipes in the past, and yet it is the healthiest recipe that might actually be my favorite! This recipe contains no added white sugar – the sweetness comes from the banana and the semi-sweet chocolate chips. While it is true that sugar is sugar, with this recipe, you aren’t getting empty calories: bananas contain potassium, vitamin B6, and some dietary fiber; semi-sweet chocolate has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Surprisingly, this recipe is also incredibly rich and sweet. I wrote the recipe fully expecting to need a drizzle of honey on top to sweeten it up, but it was so not necessary! In fact, it may border on too-sweet, so if you may find yourself adjust the number of chocolate chip tablespoons from four to three, or even just two tablespoons.

Serves 2.

Ingredients

1 cup of low fat milk, soy milk, or rice milk

4 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cocoa powder

pinch of chili powder*

dash of salt

1 small to medium banana, sliced

*The chili powder doesn’t add any actual spiciness, it just gives the hot chocolate a little bit of an edge. My husband and I weren’t able to detect any spiciness in our drinks, but if you really don’t like chili powder, it isn’t completely necessary.

Directions

Combine the milk, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, vanilla, chili powder and salt in a small sauce pan. Heat on medium heat until just before it begins to simmer. Stir often.

Meanwhile, slice a banana and place in a blender.

Once chocolate mixture is hot enough (you’ll start to see steam), remove from heat and pour into blender with bananas. Blend for about a minute, making sure all banana chunks have been smoothed out.

The end result will be very creamy. Pour into two mugs, and you’ll see some foam on top. The end result is a warm, deliciously sweet treat. Yum!
