My New Cookbook: Simple, Healing Food (and a Recipe for Chocolate Gingerbread Slice)

Exciting News!

For the last couple of years I’ve been working away on my third cookbook – planning, writing, recipe testing, rewriting, editing, travelling and cooking for photo shoots, more writing, checking, testing, editing and proofreading – and it’s FINALLY done!! Simple, Healing Food is on its way to the Quirky warehouse and due for release January 5th.

It’s been a long time in the works (thanks to Covid and all sorts of other challenges over the last couple of years), but the end is in sight. The first shipment of Simple, Healing Food will soon be ready to post out to all who have been waiting patiently for Quirky cookbook no. 3! Woooo!!!!

What’s this book about?

I’m a firm believer that healthy eating shouldn’t be complicated and stressful. It should be a common-sense approach that embraces simple and whole foods to nourish the gut, mind and body.

Modern society has lost its way with food. The results can be seen in the massive rise in chronic illness over the past 70 years or so. Of course, there are other factors to consider besides food, but when we think about how much the human diet has changed in that time, it’s obvious that the way we eat is a very important part of the picture. 

The simplest and most effective way to begin to reclaim our health, and improve the health of our families and the world around us, is to embrace nutrient-dense whole foods; the traditional foods that have nourished humans for thousands of years.

Simple, Healing Food is an invaluable guide that will provide you with the information you need to transition to a healing, whole food way of eating.

Time-Saver Tip!

If you have my Gingerbread Spice Blend, you can use it in this recipe instead of the individual spices to save time and money! Here’s how:

  • Omit the orange zest, ground ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper and vanilla
  • Add 1 1/2 Tbsp of the Gingerbread Spice Blend with the dry ingredients

Enjoy! xx

    Hi Jo – is there a trick to the coconut cream? Should it all be the solid cream that comes out of a can or is the liquid in the can ok to use too?
