Sweet and nourishing … is that possible, you ask? Keats says it is.

The granddaughter of Australian cooking queen Margaret Fulton and daughter of food writer and cookbook author Suzanne Gibbs, Louise has a culinary-rich heritage.

Everyone thinks differently when it comes to eating nutritious food. However, almost everyone can agree that reducing your refined sugar intake and cooking from scratch with whole food is beneficial.

That’s why Keats’ book is a remarkable addition to the bookshelf. It gives us the best of both worlds.

Made with less sugar and more whole foods, Louise’s recipes are both nourishing and delicious. They contain healthier fats and the least refined sugars, as well as eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds. They have plenty of goodness, but they are still a treat that you will love to share with your friends and family.

Whether it’s for a weekend brunch or family gathering, there is a recipe for every occasion and taste. She has created more than 80 recipes to nourish your body and soul. You can have a healthy, nourishing diet, without missing out on dessert!

The contents table is loaded with recipes for muffins, breads, cakes, cupcakes, tarts, pies, biscuits, slices, ice creams, sorbets, drinks and sweet essentials.

Now you can have your cake – and eat it, too. Nevertheless, it’s about balance and moderation, lots of goodness, but no concessions on taste.
