I have been almost bursting with excitement since December when I signed a new book deal. Now, I can finally announce that I have a new book coming out and it will be filled with Healthy Slow Cooker recipes.
Thank you so, so much to everyone that bought my first book, Hungry Healthy Happy. It is because of that support that this book is possible. If you haven't bought my first book, then head over to Amazon (aff) or any good book store and order a copy. The Hungry Healthy Happy book focuses on healthier versions of your favourite comfort foods - burgers, desserts, curries... you name it!

Speaking of comfort food, the slow cooker is all about comfort foods and my new book, The Healthy Slow Cooker, will give you lots of comforting recipes, but all with healthier swaps, hidden veggies and lighter options. There will be lots of vegetarian recipes in there, but easy ways to adapt them too.
I can't say too much, because I don't want to spoil the surprise, but some of the recipes you can except to see in the new book include: Chicken Fajitas, Carrot Cake Porridge, Chipotle Pulled Chicken Burgers, Garlic Fries, Baked Beans, Butternut Squash Macaroni, Honey and Mustard Sweet Potato Mash, Mushroom Bolognese and SO much more. All cooked in your slow cooker!
This book is aimed at people that have never used their slow cooker before to people that use it everyday and just want some new inspirations or healthier versions of their favourite dishes.
My slow cooker has been an absolute life saver since Avery was born. It has saved me so much time in the kitchen. One of the biggest reasons for not having a healthy diet is time and this book will give you over 100 healthy recipes that won't have you spending much time in the kitchen at all. Just put the slow cooker on in the morning and dinner is ready a few hours later. Or, put it on before bed and wake up to a cooked breakfast.
There are recipes to suit all diets. Whether you have two, four, six or eight hours to have your slow cooker bubbling away, you'll find a recipe.
I will be posting more about the book soon, including a behind the scenes post on the book being made. But, for now, I just wanted to share the exciting news with you. This book has been a joint effort between myself, Dave and Avery - they have been my photography assistants, as every recipe photo in the new book will have been taken by me. More on that in the next post!
