Book Description

14 Feb 2014
For a fraction of the price of a GP appointment, this book will help you to embark on your own journey to glowing health. When Sunday Independent food writer Susan Jane White was told to stay away from wheat, dairy and refined sugar due to intolerances, her food future seemed bleak, bland and boring. So, drawing on her gastronomic background, she created seriously tasty recipes that didn t compromise her health. The result? Susan s energy levels went through the roof and her friends and family began to look for her free-from recipes whether or not they had intolerances. Inside is a collection of Susan Jane s most loved recipes. Dishes like Maple Cardamom Peaches, Bond Girl Salad and Banana Toffee Ice Cream, all so full of flavour that you would never believe they are free from anything.

Review

'Do you and your body a favour - read this book. Susan Jane White knows what's good for you and it doesn't hurt that she writes like a dream.' --Roisin Ingle, The Irish Times

'Eating well never felt so sinful.' --Brendan O'Connor

'This gal is living proof that you are what you eat. She is all glowing, shining bounce.' --Domini Kemp

'If anyone ever needed proof that super healthy food makes a huge difference to your energy levels, immune system and general vitality, then one look at the ever-effervescent Susan Jane White would tell you everything you need to know. With recipes such as F%*K Me Salad and Kate Moss Quinoa (because you ll feel like a supermodel if you eat this), Susan Jane s first cookbook, The Extra Virgin Kitchen, is jam-packed full of recipes for everyone, but, happily, for those with wheat, sugar and dairy intolerances too' . ----Rachel Allen Sunday Independent Life 30 March 2014

About the Author

Susan Jane White is a specialist cook, food columnist with The Sunday Independent, former president of Oxford University's Gastronomy Society, and popular broadcaster on healthy eating. When she was 25, Susan Jane developed a serious immune disorder. The first year of her illness saw 12 courses of antibiotics, steroids, anti-fungal colon treatment and many futile vaccinations. And a bad sense of humour. On top of this, her digestive system appeared to be conking out. This marked the beginning of her nutritional pilgrimage. She discovered that her energy levels were intimately linked with the food she ate. So she avoided the foods that taxed her body -- anything processed or highly refined. And it worked. Two years later she was back to her bouncy bionic self, much to the wonderment of the medical community. Her condition has not since returned. But her sense of humour has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 25 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover
I've had this book about three weeks now and I've already cooked loads of recipes from it. The way in which the book is written in terms of why certain ingredients are good for you and the benefits they have, is so useful. I've already bought one for my mum and I think other family members will be getting some copies too!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Has helped changed my life 25 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a fab book. I suffer terribly from eczema and have done for 35 years. A few months ago, it just seemed to reach a crisis point like never point, and referred back yet again to another dermatologist, I started looking for alternatives with an enthusiasm I'd not had before. I'm a real foodie. The idea of giving up any food, let alone dairy or meat is horrific to me. And yet here I am barely two months later nearly eczema free for the first time in, well, I don't know how long. First I found out about the alkaline diet, and then I found this book.

What I really want to praise about this book is how informative and helpful it is to anyone making big transitions in their diet and trying to make good sound decisions when there's so much out there, a lot of it pretending to be good for us and actually not. I've discovered by staying away from ALL dairy, processed food, refined sugar, eating non farmed or dyed fish and organic white meat occasionally, with lots of fruit and vegetables, brown basmati, quinoa and staying hydrated. The changes are phenominal. The information in this book is life changing if you suffer from all manner of health issues.

Looking at how I've suffered and the transformation, other members of my own family have started eating like this. I lost wrinkles, tiredness as well as improved my skin vastly. I think there's lots to praise about this book and I do reccommend it. I hope she does more, with less emphasis on quinoa, which despite it's many virtues, I don't find quite as thrilling as Susan Jane White seems to. I really hope she does a couple more books for baking and one for celebrations and festive occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Yummy 11 Sep 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've tried around 10 recipes from this excellent book and all of them worked and tasted brilliantly. Good for kids too and so nutritious. what a treat! Some recipes are a bit expensive if you don't have the ingredients already but at least you can be sure they will turn out lovely and some of them you only need a little (but have to buy a big bag like hemp seeds etc).
The fudge with goji berries fudge is gorgeous - I grind the goji berries and hemp seeds and it tastes as if there are salty caramel bits in it! I've made it 5 times now! :) Chocolate fudge lovely as well. Spread recipes lovely. The way she makes her fish fingers - my favourite and my child never refuses them as well. Works 100% for me.
This is one of my most loved cookery books, actually it's the only one I'm using right now. Recommended for everybody who loves real food with modern approach - Susan Jane white has a way with superfoods that is just perfect for us :)
Oh - and the best thing is that all the recipes I've tried so far take so little time to prepare!
Give it a try, I think you can find some recipes on Susan's blog.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book blew us away. 17 Mar 2014
By SimonOz
Format:Hardcover
Here’s a summary of what you’ll get:

(1) It’s massive – incredible value for 25 quid. Timeless.

(2) Humour – she’s really very funny, and makes us laugh every time we use the book. It’s the sort of book I’ve even brought to bed.

(3) Inspiration (a good one to keep in your office drawer, planning weekday meals)

(4) An introduction to superfoods
(although the downside to this is their expense. Usually they are 'optional' within the recipe, so it's not necessary to shell out on pricey superfoods. Thought it worth mentioning nevertheless)

(5) Breakfasts – the breakfast section alone is worth the price tag. I try to avoid gluten, so this is great for me (136 recipes are gluten free). Below I’ll list the options for you so you can get an idea of how delicious sounding and creative she is

- Badass Breakfast Bars
- Double Decker Amaranth & Banana Pudding
- The Only Granola Recipe You'll Ever Need
- Office Bombs
- Buckwheat Pancakes
- Chia Jam
- 6AM Toddler Cookies
- Chestnut Crepes
- Multiseed Bread with Caraway Spice
- Smoked Salmon Blini with Healthier 'Hollandaise'
- Sticky Cinnamon & Prune Cakes (I used brown rice flour to make them gluten free)
- Maple & Cardamom Peaches
- Brown Rice and his cousins (complete guide on cooking all the different brown rice available)

... and lots of quinoa recipes. No pasta. And 40 awesome desserts. I haven't even touched the chapter on salads, or soups, or curries but this should give you some idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book nourishes your body and your soul 15 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I can only recommend this book if you are a cook who is curious to expand your ingredient repertoire, eat addictively delicious (and easily home-made) food, and if you want to learn a thing or two about the nutrients in your food. The book genuinely stands out from many other cook books which easily become quite same same.

And while lots of nutritional books can become a bit boring, Susan Jane's writing style is witty, beautiful and genuinely accessible.

Enjoy it - I have found myself reading this book as Saturday morning literature. And then spending time playing in the kitchen - amazed at what some ingredients do in connection with some others etc. Favourite recipes: the breakfasts and treats. Enjoy!
