Going sugar-free + my quinoa salad recipe

It’s spring clean time!

On Monday I start Sarah Wilson’s 8-weeks “I Quit Sugar” programme. Who’s in?

After reading articles and glimpses of her work here and there for a few years I’ve finally got myself equipped with the books and going all at it. Sarah has a very practical, clear and fact-based approach which makes total sense. If you think you have a sugar addiction (who doesn’t?) or just want to lighten up the load and cleanse the system as is most recommended in spring then she’s your girl.

The fact that she is a big fan of Ayurveda is just icing on the cake… without the sugar spike.

And if you fancy the challenge of the sugar-free programme then in a tiny nutshell the menu is lots of good fats, nuts, seeds, lots of proteins, vegetables especially the green kind. Start including more superfoods and make coconut oil your friend.

So here enters my quinoa salad, anyone who knows me will know this is my cooking-for-dummies one-trick-pony party dish. Nothing too clever but a whole lot of goodness.



feta cheese




pine nuts

sesame seeds

olive oil

lemon juice




lots of all the above, a good shake and go.

Alberto Villoldo in One Spirit Medicine gives a very interesting take on the sugar-free detox if you need more inspiration. Different angle clearly, he’s a shaman!
