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 coobook!

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!

above recipes: kale, quinoa & green olive salad | coconut and vanilla bean yoghurt | super freen breakfast smoothie | cajun purple carrot + black bean sliders

SeeSaw Seventies Style

September 29, 2010

Posted by in vintage finds

Hello gorgeous Roosters! It’s Nancy here from Wolf and Willow, stopping by with a little vintage goodness whilst Bonnie is moving house. Apart from the endless enjoyment I get from browsing through Etsy’s handmade goods, I just love that you can shop for craft supplies and vintage too. It’s heaven for lovers of all three, like me! Here’s a little collection of seventies-style homewares from one of my favourite vintage sellers, SeeSaw Vintage. I love the geometric patterns and the cute retro color schemes, like tangerine, olive and goldenrod, which are so quintessential of that era. It reminds me of laminex table tops, wood grain wallpaper, and summer parties with those brightly-colored cocktail onions and cheese squares. Pretty groovy, don’t you think?

please welcome, guest poster: wolf and willow

Hello darlings! My name is Nancy. I just popped over from Wolf and Willow to borrow a cup of sugar. That is, my dear friend Bonnie has kindly invited me to write a little guest post for you all, and I’m tickled pink! They always say “write what you know” so today, I’d like to introduce you to some beautiful, talented ladies from my hometown, Melbourne. I’ve asked each one what makes them laugh when creating.

Have You Met Miss Jones

Ceramic artist, Jennifer, from Have You Met Miss Jones, says it’s the expressions on the faces of all the animals that she designs that really makes her laugh. “It’s really important to get the facial expression just right” she says, “me and my mould maker always laugh over trying to think of what an owl or a squirrel may be thinking at that moment!”

Ink & Spindle

The girls over at Ink & Spindle had a good old giggle trying to answer my question, and say their immediate response was “my business partner’s dorky behaviour”. In this funky little textile studio, it seems there’s always something to laugh about, whether it’s singing out of tune, bad dancing around the printing table or a neighbour’s mid-afternoon sweet tooth. It’s so inspiring to hear how much these two artists love their job. Keep on smiling girls!

Visual artists Gracia & Louise are constantly blowing me away with their creativity and passion! I’ve often enjoyed the quiet, quizzical sense of humour in their artists’ books, prints and zines, so it’s no surprise to hear that caffeine, cocoa and laughter are three constants in their day. Gracia says, “collaboration throws up the unexpected, and what’s not to like about that?”

Thanks so much for having me, Bonnie. I’ve really enjoyed bringing you this little post all the way from Australia!
