SWEETNESS & LIGHT
DAISY LOWE sweet without sugar – British model Daisy Lowe has created a cookery book. The book is called Sweetness & Light and is a guide for people to create delicious sweet but healthy treats. In all the recipes artificial sugar is swapped for natural ingredients. The book is divided in seven chapters, with inviting titles such as Scream For Ice Cream, Make You Feel Great Cakes and Skinny Puddings. The book will be published on July 3,
“Sweetness & Light is the result of my journey to discover the craft of baking guilt-free delicious treats,” said Lowe. “I wanted to create a collection of recipes that ensure you can enjoy sweet things without harming your body. You’ll find recipes here to satisfy even the sweetest tooth. Many are gluten-, dairy- and refined sugar-free, some are vegan and others raw. Cook with love and make your body feel good.”
Daisy, who has previously modelled for top-designers like Jean Paul Gaultier, Louis Vuitton and Agent Provocateur, said she loved cooking since she was a little girl and thinks there is no need to deprive ourselves of our favourite foods, as long as we prepare it well.
“I never thought it would be possible for me to kick the sugar habit until I moved to New York,” she said. “There, I tasted natural products that give you a sweet hit without harming your body. Recently I also found out that I am intolerant to wheat and dairy. A few of the healthy substitutions I’ve made for wheat, dairy and sugar in these recipes will be new to you, but you will easily be able to find them in health-food shops and online. My body feels so much healthier and it works better. I have more energy, I sleep better, I get sick less often. I am feeding myself, not starving or depriving myself of the sweet things I love. I wanted to share these recipes so you can do the same, and love yourself from the inside out.”
