No. 1 Bestseller
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.
In this book 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.

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, 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.
Susan lives in Dublin with her husband and two little vandals.
