“I quit sugar … and fell in love with my slow cooker. Seriously, slow cooker cooking is my answer to eating well. I’m all about “dense nutrition”. A slow cooker extracts the best of my food without destroying enzymes. It also extracts maximum flavour – particularly good when trying to convert friends or family to a more nutrient-dense way of living.”
To give you a taster of what deliciousness you can expect inside the
Slow Cooker Cookbook, the IQS Team have picked their favourite recipes to share with you.

The Vietnamese Chicken Curry that made Sarah cry – “When I’m asked to cite my favourite food experience, this is the one I share. I first ate cari ga on a mountain-bike trip with my brother Pete in Vietnam. We’d been riding for nine hours through a desert and one of the highest mountains in the country, plus I had food poisoning. By the time I arrived, I was dead set delirious and my brother found us the closest hole-in-the-wall place steaming with a cauldron of this curry. At the first spoonful I cried. Then I ordered two more serves.
Zoe Eaton, general manager
Pro-Biotic Greek Yoghurt: Yep, you read that right. Yoghurt. In a slow cooker. Who knew? Plus, I love the idea of knowing EXACTLY what’s in my yoghurt.

Slow-Bro’s (Double-Choc Walnut Brownies)
So, I’ve never actually made these but Steph makes them all the time and brings them into the office. I’m still wrapping my head around an entire chapter dedicated to cakes and puds – cooked in a slow cooker. Madness!
Jo Foster, executive assistant to Sarah Wilson
Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake: I had no idea you could make cakes in a slow cooker, so I was thrilled when this came in to the office to be tasted! It’s one of my favourite slow cooker dishes EVER.
Clarissa Wilson, sales manager
Chicken & White Bean Soup: This recipe is foolproof, delicious and so nutritious. It’s great to have in the fridge after a long day at the office, and it freezes for the perfect quick meal. I sometimes do this with a whole chook for extra tastiness and mix in different veggies like zucchini or squash depending on what’s in the fridge.
Renee Lynch, social media manager
Caveman Breakfast Mince: I live with a real life caveman and he demolished this dish for breakfast with a couple of eggs stirred through straight out of the slow cooker. It’s a win for me when a meal fills him up and this breakfast dish did just that.
Stephanie Hinton, eBook guru
Sweet Pumpkin Sunday Beans: When I was growing up every Sunday dad would make us a big English fry up. My favourite part was the baked beans. Since eliminating sugar this is one of the things I miss most. These sweet beans taste even better than the real thing and the fibre in the pumpkin and beans keeps you going all day. No second helping required.
Kate Kneipp, editorial coordinator
Roo Rogan Josh: I’m a sucker for a good spicy curry. Kangaroo is delicious when slow cooked, plus it’s a great source of iron.
Aaron, IT intern
Morning Tea Muesli Slice: I’m a fan of muesli and nuts, especially in easy and portable bar style formats, so anything with those ingredients that can be eaten and carried as a slice gets a big tick from me.
Megan Yonson, editorial intern
Barbequed Pulled Pork: The first time I tried this BBQ pork I actually didn’t believe it could be THAT good. Plus it’s totally fool proof and was one of my first slow cooked recipes.
