About ‘Cut out the Crap’ Cookbook
In cooking and preparing these recipes and writing this book, I am hoping to reach out to others who may be feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, bored and hungry with their diet, like I was only a few years ago.
This book is not just for those with food allergies. It is for those of us who choose to eat healthily, perhaps to lose or maintain weight and for those who want to care for their bodies, starting from the inside. I have maintained a rapid 18kg weight loss initially generated through an elimination diet without any exercise. Through this process along with extensive research and visits to specialists, I have discovered the foods I can eat. I now eat this food daily – I have no choice (I have countless food allergies) but I can honestly say, if I did have a choice I would continue to eat as such, as I have never felt so alive, energetic and healthy.
I have a new passion for healthy and exciting food, not just for myself but also because I know I’m bringing my two daughters up to appreciate healthy foods. With childhood obesity increasing at such a rapid rate, I believe it’s even more important for us to prevent fast foods from taking over our lives. It’s more important than ever to “cut out the crap” and get back to basic, healthy and tasty eating.
Each and every recipe in this book is Gluten, Dairy and Preservative free. All of these recipes have been tested several times by me, my husband and my two young daughters. (Not to mention many willing friends). These recipes are what we eat every day and night.
Every recipe is easy to make. You won’t have to spend hours slaving in the kitchen. You won’t need to run all over town to find strange ingredients – all can be found in your local supermarket, health food store and fruit and vegie store.
And as I know what it’s like to run a household on a budget, all of these recipes are affordable to have every night.
Being told you have an allergy or intolerance can be a scary thing. Not knowing what to eat results in many people cooking two evening meals. You won’t need to do this anymore, as these are recipes the whole family will enjoy. What a wonderful feeling it will be to have your whole family sitting around the dinner table, enjoying a tasty meal together, and knowing that your body won’t punish you for it.
For those of you who are having difficulty trying to lose weight, maintain a healthy weight, or if you simply enjoy being healthy, this book will most certainly enable you to achieve such goals. Having will power is one necessity. The other is having the information on hand to help you each step of the way on a daily basis. Having it all under one roof (or in one book) is going to make meal times clearer and more exciting for you.
Cut out the crap and ENJOY!!
