EAT LIKE A COSMOPOLITAN HIPPY

It’s taken almost 2 years, but this November, I will be releasing my cookbook! Just in time for Christmas!

Eat like a Cosmopolitan Hippy is a clean eating cookbook based on what I and my family (including my 2 year old, Lady A) eat every day.

Within the pages you will find the reasons I eat the way I do: why wheat is like heroin for your brain (no seriously it is!), how I feel about dairy and how to tell your chia from your quinoa. Learn how to restock your pantry, create new food rules, heal your gut and change your eating for a lifetime. Oh and there are also recipes, over 100 of them in fact. Old favourites Cosmo-fied like mint slice, Shepard’s pie and marshmallows. Plus there is chocolate (lots of chocolate!), easy fish, chicken and meat dishes, vegan recipes and, lest we forget: cocktails! Just like this one: my No-hito. This recipe is sans alcohol, but the apple cider vinegar and ginger are great for your liver so you could add a little gin, vodka or rum to the recipe. Then this tipple will be much better for you than those pre-mixed versions. You could even crush the ice for a slushy version, perfect for balmy Darwin nights.

Enjoy my lovelies and I will see you all in 2015!
