About the Book:
This is a second edition of the first version of Sweet Healing. It includes new recipes and altered versions of other recipes. “I realized that more sugar had to be removed from my recipes, as most folks need to heal the gut entirely before being able to enjoy a bit of honey or maple syrup.” This new and improved version also has more information to help you heal and maintain a healthy digestive system.
Sweet Healing: Free Your Body from Sugar Cravings and Nourish Yourself with Divine Desserts, Ame Wauters herself acknowledges that just several years ago, “If you had told me that I could completely heal myself of my sugar cravings, I would have thought, Who are you kidding? I will never be free from sugar’s sticky grips. I will always have to manage a high level of self-control for the rest of my life!”
While Ame’s love of healthy baking and cooking spans over 30 years of research and experimentation, she reveals it wasn’t until her mother’s terminal cancer that she was compelled to look more deeply. “My mother’s diagnosis thrust me into my own health crisis, I knew it was time to feed myself better and pursue what truly nurtured me. It had become unbearable to constantly punish myself for not attaining some unreal fantasy of what I should look like or even feel like anymore. I wanted to feed myself well… physically yes, but even more important, I wanted to nourish myself mentally and spiritually as well.”
In this small accessible book, the journey is as much soulfully revelatory as nutritionally illuminating. Ame will guide you on a gentle yet powerfully healing path that she calls “awakening to a new frontier of food and its possibilities.” Like all true paths, the journey IS the destination so Ame works with gentle wisdom: “We all know simple quick fixes backfire and often hurt rather than help us, but that doesn’t mean lasting solutions to issues and real resolutions to our pain are beyond our reach. They are within our grasp, but we do we need to reach for them. We just need to go slowly, step by step.”
In fact, Ame’s guiding hand serves up 4 readily digestible steps to make your way lovingly forward to living your “sweet life” permanently, no longer suffering the ill effects of sugar:
