Who is this e-cookbook for?
This e-cookbook is for you.
It was created for all of us. Like most people, we like to enjoy delicious but healthy baked goods that are made from real, wholesome ingredients as opposed to processed foods.
If you love baking and cooking, and want to eat better, and treat your bodies with healthy foods, and like having an e-cookbook on your tablet, smartphone or computer all the time, then this cookbook is definitely for you!
In particular, I wrote this e-cookbook for those who need to go on a low-glycemic index diet because of the danger of being diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes, or those who are trying to reverse their Type-2 diabetes. I also wrote it for Celiacs who can’t eat gluten and want delicious wholesome foods.
I created this e-cookbook specifically for those of you who love baked goods but are struggling with their weight and want to cut down on those extra pounds that don’t make you feel so good.
Why I wrote this e-cookbook
A few years after I started cooking, I read Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis.
His book basically advocated a diet low in carbohydrates and one as free of processed foods as possible. In short, he expressed heavy support for a grain-free diet, which naturally meant a low-glycemic index diet (one which consists of foods that do not greatly raise your blood sugar after being digested).
Intrigued by the claims in Wheat Belly, I began searching for grain-free recipes to try, and as I started moving away from a diet high in carbohydrates and sugars to one that was mostly grain-free, as well as avoiding processed foods as much as possible, I found that I was also gradually feeling better.
My immune system had improved and I was no longer falling sick as easily. I’d also managed to lose extra pounds that had been sticking around for the past few years.
Mainly, for my mum
On Christmas Day, 25 December, 2014, my mum suffered a heart attack and the doctors also diagnosed her with Type-2 diabetes after operating on her.
The fact that I’d come so close to losing my mum shocked me into action. I was determined to help her find her way back to health. I remembered the claims in Wheat Belly that stated that diabetics should follow a low-glycemic index in order not to cause unhealthy spikes in their blood sugar level.
I began posting more and more grain-free recipes on the blog. Mainly, I posted recipes of foods that my mum would be able to make and eat without fear of causing unhealthy spikes in her blood sugar levels. I managed to convince my mum to move to a low-glycemic index diet (and to eat grain-free foods as much as possible).
After changing her diet, my mum lost 14 pounds, dropped two dress sizes, as well as showed great improvement in her hemoglobin A1c test (a test which measures a 90-day average of a person’s blood sugar levels).
Feedback from readers
At first, I thought that the grain-free recipes I posted only benefited my mum.
That was until blog readers whom I didn’t personally know started commenting on the blog and emailing me to tell me that adopting some of the grain-free recipes from the blog had helped them lose weight as well as keep their hemoglobin A1c levels down. I was amazed.
A follower of the blog also recently commented that she’d gone from being pre-diabetic to out of danger of being diabetic simply by following a grain-free diet.
I cannot deny that we are what we eat, and it is of utmost importance that we be selective about the food we put into our bodies. The effect of food in our lives is crystal-clear to me.
Making a difference
I finally felt that I was creating a positive impact, dish by dish. I saw how the grain-free recipes on the blog helped people regain their health.
I realized that I wanted to and could make a difference by compiling some of the best grain-free recipes on the blog into a digital cookbook – one that people could easily refer to, carry with them in their tablets and smartphones, or open on their computers. I wanted these grain-free recipes to be used and shared by those who made them – not just stay on the blog – and help people enjoy good health.
In this e-cookbook, I’ve focused on grain-free breads and treats because baked goods are often the hardest to achieve when using grain-free flours and ingredients.
These are the recipes that have found their way from the kitchen to my table; recipes that have been shared with my friends and loved ones. Recipes that are meant to be used over and over again – to be tweaked and modified to your preferences and tastes. Recipes that I know you will enjoy as much as I do.

What do people really think?
What is an e-cookbook?
An e-cookbook is basically a cookbook in a digital format.
The beauty of having an e-cookbook instead of a physical one is that it is made for use on your computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. Plus, digital books help us to save paper and trees!
This e-cookbook will be downloaded as a versatile PDF file, and I don’t recommend that you print it because of the sheer number of pages and the amount of ink that will be used. However, if you wish to print it, go ahead!
I recommend that you download and enjoy this e-cookbook’s functionality on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
That way, you can zoom in and out, flip the orientation from landscape to portrait (and vice versa), click on all the useful links included, and most importantly, have it with you all the time.
To read the e-cookbook to your laptop or desktop computer, you’ll need the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded for free here. To read the e-cookbook on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, simply upload the PDF to your iBooks library. It’s as simple as that!
I’ve got answers!
I’d like to purchase the e-cookbook as a gift. Is that possible?
Yes! Click the “Buy Now” button and you’ll be sent to the payment screen. Next to the email address field, click the little gift icon to enter the recipient’s email address and a personalized message! That’s it!
How can I pay for the e-cookbook?
You can pay via any of the following: Paypal, credit card (Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, Maestro, Diner’s Club, Discover), or debit card (certain debit cards only).
Note that banks typically have stricter rules regarding online purchases with debit cards, since debit cards do not offer chargeback protection. If you plan on using a debit card to purchase the e-cookbook, it is a good idea to verify with your bank before you make your purchase.
Are these recipes gluten-free?
Definitely! By definition, grain-free recipes do not include grains, and because gluten is found in grains such as wheat and barley, these recipes are naturally gluten-free!
Do you use “common” ingredients in the recipes?
The ingredients used in these recipes are not as common as the typical wheat flour, but include ingredients such as nut flours (think almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca starch, cashew meal, etc.).
In the book, I also teach you how to make your own homemade nut flour alternatives if you can’t find ingredients such as almond flour, for example.
How do I get the e-cookbook on my iPad or iPhone?
Install the iBooks app and simply click the link given to you during checkout! Alternatively, you can download the cookbook to your computer, add it to your library, and sync your iPad with your computer.
