Model Daisy Lowe has long been a poster girl for healthy curves, insisting that she loves food too much to starve herself in order to fit into a sample size.
Now the stunning brunette is set to release her first cookbook, in which she shares her favourite “healthy sweet treats”.
Titled Sweetness & Light, the 25-year-old Agent Provocateur pin-up has put together a mix of 60 recipes in the cookery tome that offer healthier alternatives for those wanting to look after their bodies as well as indulge.
Daisy said of the book, “This is the result of my journey to discover the craft of baking guilt-free delicious treats. 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.”
She added, “I never thought it would be possible for me to kick the sugar habit until I moved to New York. 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.”
To promote her first literary work, the daughter of Pearl Lowe and rocker Gavin Rossdale gave an exclusive demonstration of her baking skills to GraziaDaily, whipping up a delicious lemon drizzle cake with chef and food writer Sophie Wright.
