IQS Chocolate eBook, Allergy Aware Shopping App and Flavours of Spring Recipe App
I Quit Sugar Chocolate eBook by Sarah Wilson
So, you’ve been thinking of giving up or reducing your sugar consumption, but you just can’t say no to chocolate, right? For many, it’s deal breaker. Well, Sarah knows that The Big Stumbling Block for most of us when we quit sugar is… The Chocolate Issue. Which is why she is publishing the IQS Chocolate eBook and makes it clear from the outset: yes you can have chocolate! But you really have to make your own. Which is far easier than you might think – I know, I’ve made my own chocolate and love it!
Now imagine sugar-free versions of all your chocolate-y favourites: brownies, lamingtons, Ice Magic, chocolate ice cream and so on. Finally they’re all here in the one comprehensive book which will be released later this month.
Sarah who has been an inspiration to me so much that I have published my own sugar-free eBook, Guilt-Free Desserts, has been kind enough to invite me to contribute a couple of recipes to this latest IQS installment. Alongside Sarah’s own recipes the eBook will also feature recipes from 13 IQS readers and 4 other contributors including: Jemma Gawned, who runs raw food bar and wholesale kitchen Naked Treaties from Byron Bay NSW; Megan Gilmore, a holistic health coach; her blog Detoxinista provides sublime, quick, all-natural recipes; Jules Clancy, who has a degree in Food Science; her blog The Stone Soup specializes in recipes that use five ingredients or less; Anthia Koullouros is a Naturopath, and founder of OVViO Organics: Tea-house, clinic and apothecary in Sydney.
