Cooking Without: Recipes Free from Added Gluten, Sugar, Dairy Products, Yeast, Salt and Saturated Fat

Front Cover
Thorsons, 2000 - Cooking - 266 pages

'Cooking Without' written by nutritional therapist Barbara Cousins is not only a collection of delicious and easy to make recipes but is also a book about health - how to gain it and how to keep it.

The recipes in 'Cooking Without' obtain their flavour from ingredients that are health promoting rather than high levels of salt, fat or sugar. Ingredients such as gluten, dairy produce and yeast, which cause many individuals to have health problems, have also been excluded. As well as being linked to food intolerances these ingredients can also be an underlying factor in more serious health problems.

The regime in 'Cooking Without' aims to give the body sufficient amounts of the nutrients it needs, thus producing extra energy which can be then be used for elimination and healing. The art of detoxification is explained in an easy to understand formula as are some of the reasons for health problems such as migraines, chronic fatigue and irritable bowel syndrome.

About the author (2000)

Barbara Cousins is a nutritional therapist who wrote her first book over 26 years ago. 'Cooking Without' was written for the benefit of Barbara's clients and was self-published in 1990. 'Cooking Without' was taken over by Thorsons in 1996 and was followed by another two books in the series, 'Vegetarian Cooking Without' and 'Cooking Without Made Easy'. Her latest book 'Easy Tasty Healthy' came out in 2016 and this book is free from soya and eggs as well as gluten, dairy, sugar and yeast because so many people now have problems with these foods too.
