    Hi Maddie- I have just started the 6 week programme in your first book and I am really enjoying it. I am an absolute sugar goblin most of the time so I am definitely a beginner, so excuse my (possibly stupid) questions! Would recipes on your website have the same effect as those in the book? Or should I stick to the recipes in the book for the first 6 weeks? I notice that you mention brown rice above but from what I can see so far I don’t think this is in the book. Is it ok to eat brown rice? Also, random but how do you feel about sausages?

    Hi Madeleine, just made this curry tonight and it was lovely. I love the idea of blending the cashews with the coconut milk, so creamy. Added some spinach for extra veg. Will add the new book to my next amazon order! X

      AMAZING!! Let me know what you make xx

    Hi, would you be able to make this with chicken rather than prawns?

    • Madeleine Shaw

      Absolutely, that would be lovely!! I love it with chicken xx

    • Ruby

      Thank you for your reply! Would you suggest cooking the chicken before adding it to the curry, or adding it raw and letting it look in the sauce? xx

    • Madeleine Shaw

      hello lovely, I would sear it first on it’s own and then add it to the sauce xx
