This could be you changing your Life!!
Hi Graham & Di
Thank you for putting this book together, Max and I did the the 6 week detox and have incorporated the new found way to eat into our everyday. We aren't honest vegans but I have so enjoyed learning to cook with legumes and your recipes have been fabulous. I have jazzed up some to my own design but the basics are there. I found it so easy to follow and stick with the program all the way because of the way you set it out. It was so easy and that made us successful in completing it. We were the original meat eaters and a bottle of wine a night. It has started us on the road to a new way of life that we both wanted but always found it too hard to make the break. We didnt think we would ever be able to change our life time of eating the way we did. I lost 15k and feel great and Max had his heart medication dropped. We hope to eventually see it eliminated. I cant say enough about your book and tell everyone I speak to about it.
Dear Graeme & Di,
I'm at the end of week one of the turn over a new leaf detox. It has been an exciting week for me & my taste buds. I have always regarded myself as very health aware. I have children, that from very early on, we're highly sensitive to food & environment . It was easy to remain fairly strict on what went in everyone's mouth because it wasn't worth the side affects.
Our Essene bread is quite crumbly, so even if you manage to cut it, it still
Jean from Toowoomba advised: Your book is remarkable. I put my husband and two boys on the program and was amazed at the change in attitude of all three. Particularly the boys who's behaviour improved so much I could hardly recognise them.
Thanks , Anna Hobart Tasmania
Email comments : Hi your book is great! Haven't exactly followed the plan however I do use your recipes. I cut out eating crap food and only ate your vegan diet. From doing this I have lost 9kg and feel really good. Karen
Email comments : I have recently brought your book. It is fantastic! In the back of the book it said to email you to register for the book owners website, which I would love to do. Mum and Dad also have your book they have lost about 15kg in the first three weeks of the program and are feeling revitalised and full of BEANS! For me, being a cook it has opened my eyes to new food products I always thought to hard to use. To top it all off I've hopped on your web site today to find that you are both Artists as well. Thank you for the inspiration to be all I can be. sincerely Andrea
Email Comments Dear Di and Graeme,
Andrew was the keenest in the kitchen and would always find a way to my heart with a good wine and lamb shanks. I was so craving meat the butcher would chop a slab of salami for me to chew before I gave my weekly order. Petrol stations equaled caramello Koala...sugar in tea and cake for morning tea. We liked a drink, not excessive, so we thought but it was a beer or wine at least once a day and twice on Sundays. A social occasion was never without the booze. The weekly food bill including two bottles of wine and a dozen beers would come to about $250.
With working and exercising daily we found ourselves exhausted and unable to ever have enough sleep. Andrew had really stiff joints and I was a moody cow (all month). Something had to change. So I made a pact with Andrew I would do all the cooking and he would be with me all the way and together we would turn over a new leaf. I had no idea what that was going to look like in the end but it's sure worth the effort.
The recipes are absolutely delicious. I never once felt I was missing out. I must confess I couldn't cope for too many mornings without Graemes nut paste (still can't). I had very little if any cravings for anything from my previous diet and by week two felt so good, just knew there would be no going back. I was also overcome with the fact I was providing the best possible fuel to my body and that of my man (tee hee). I was beginning to feel so clear in my head and no longer skiing the slopes of sugar highs and lows. Andrew started shedding the hard round tummy almost immediately and both of us were springing out of bed after six hours sleep.
It has been a month now since we finished our six week program and the impact it has had on our lives is amazing. We are still eating every meal from the book and of course getting healthier and healthier by the minute. Our friends are getting used to us not drinking and have realized we are just as much fun as usual. Our bank account is in the black again as the cost of living is down to a weekly food bill of $150 and it's all organic. The clothes we thought would never be able to fit again are on, my man looks ten years younger. We want to shout about this book from the rooftops!!!!
This program is the easiest and smoothest way to transition from a conventional diet to a whole food diet, learn the truth about the food you eat, get to know what your body really needs, give your vital organs a makeover and change your life forever.
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou Sarah Crawford Sunshine Coast
I am in my sixth week of Turn Over a New Leaf Recipes and I feel fantastic. I love all the recipes and so does my husband. Absolutely delicious - thank you so very much.
With Love and Gratitude
Thank you so much for your wonderful book "Turning Over A New Leaf".
I am in the midst of 'turning over a new leaf' on a number of fronts - and the idea of taking on the 6 week challenge is just 'a bit much' at the moment. BUT I am starting to 'work through things one step at a time' - mostly for my sanity (but also, as we eat very healthily anyway, I need to use up some of my current kitchen stock too). This is going to be an 'evolution' rather than a 'revolution' for us.
Tonight, we tried the popcorn recipe. Our 9 year old son told me that I 'rock'!!! (He LOVED it - and I loved knowing that he was getting his flaxseed oil and celtic sea salt minerals while having a 'treat'). How cool are you!!! I would like to ask how much oil and salt I should be using (I made it quite salty - OOPS)????
I wanted to thank you so much for putting this book together!!! Over the past several months, a 'health crisis' has forced me to look much more closely at my diet (I have had to eliminate ALL sugar, for example). I've been very frustrated with shopping (reading labels is an education in itself!!!) and trying to find appropriate recipes. Even books that advocate certain health principles contain recipes that go against those very principles!!! I'm so looking forward to trying out your recipes for hummous and tomato sauce!!! It's going to be a fun journey - but even at this early stage, I can't thank you enough!!!!!!!!
Warmest regards from chilly Melbourne, Suzana
