Hands-On Step-by-Step Instructional Guide

This hands-on, step-by-step instruction of how to create and flavor your sauce means you can repeat these techniques over and over and over again.

So you'll free yourself from the bonds of recipes and allow your creativity to shine through as cooking becomes fun again.

As you gain an understanding for the ingredients you are adding to your sauce, you can create a sauce at any time with the ingredients you have on hand. These are ingredients that most whole-foods kitchens are stocked with like nuts, seeds, tofu, beans and whole grains.

And these are the foods that you will learn to use in creating your very own unique sauces. So your sauces are winners that taste great and are healthy for you too.

Chef Heather Mader

The entire book offers gentle guidance.

The in-depth review of sauce bases and how to combine those bases with ingredients to create sauces without a recipe was very thorough. The entire book offers gentle guidance and loving support. -- Chef Heather Mader, Personal Chef, Portland, Oregon, www.BlackRadish.net

In fact, since most of the techniques taught in GSWS can work with any whole-foods cooking you do, you'll become a better cook.

That's because as you learn many cooking basics to build a winning sauce, you can easily translate these basics to other dishes. So you can create whole-foods dishes at any time with the ingredients you have on hand.

What does this mean for you? Very little meal planning, since you can build an entire meal quickly and easily.

Imagine how excited you will be to get into the kitchen to whip up a yummy and healthy meal.

Make Sauces With Healthy Fats

The sauces you'll create are good for you made with the healthy fats your body needs.

There's a world of difference between sauces made with cholesterol-free healthy fats (such as avocado, extra-virgin olive oil, nuts, seeds, and organic tofu) vs. cholesterol-packed and rear-end maximizing fats (milk, butter, and cheese).

You can enjoy these creamy, comforting and delicious sauces every day if you'd like. Without the guilt!

Fabulous Weight Loss Secret!

Using whole-foods ingredients means more fiber in your food. And since fiber sweeps through your intestines to keep them clean, this gets rid of the junk inside.

But there's another reason these sauces can help you to lose weight.

Rich-tasting, fiber-filled sauces help you feel satisfied so you eat less. It's amazing how much weight you can lose if you walk away happy and fulfilled instead of wanting more!

Can you believe a creamy, dreamy, delicious sinful-tasting sauce can actually help you to lose weight?

Believe it!

Not to mention, if you could be satisfied with your own homemade sauces instead of loading up your meals with fattening non-dairy cheeses that are stuffed with sodium, wouldn't that sound like a good idea?

Get Sauced With Sass! Q&A

Q: "How many recipes for sauces in your book include or require soy? Do you suggest alternatives? I am allergic to soy and too often have purchased books and found a good portion of them unusable for me for that reason."

Sassy Sez: The book is unique in that it is not a cookbook, per se, but more of an instructional guide. YOU choose the ingredients to create your sauce (based on my recommendations).

There is absolutely no reason to use soy (I rarely use it myself), although soy options are there for those who do. You simply choose from base ingredients such as beans/whole grains/veggies, liquids such as veg broth/water/oat milk, healthy fats such as avocado/nuts/coconut, and herbs/spices/whole food flavorings to create your own winning sauce. Basically, I provide the ingredients and the instruction, and you play Mix & Match.

Remember, I offer a money-back guarantee on all my books. If for any reason you are not satisfied that you can make a sauce using non-soy ingredients, I will refund your money.

Q: "Can you post on your website or send me a few sample recipes from your book?"

Sassy Sez: This is not a recipe book in the traditional sense. If you are looking for a book full of recipes you can follow, then this is not the book for you (although there are a few recipes sprinkled throughout to help rev your sauce engine).

Instead, GSWS teaches you sauce-building techniques so you can create health-supportive and yummy sauces from scratch - without a recipe. In order for me to share how I create sauces in my own kitchen, it was necessary for me to completely deconstruct my techniques, and figure out a way to teach them in an easy-to-understand manner.

Beans and rice and veggies are an easy and inexpensive way to eat a healthy plant-strong diet. But sometimes they CAN get a little boring. The simple addition of a sauce can make a world of difference between a ho-hum meal and a dish that will make you excited about eating again.

Q: "I'm wondering if Get Sauced! is essentially gluten free as well? Thanks a bundle."

Sassy Sez: The book is unique in that it is not a cookbook, per se, but more of an instructional guide. YOU choose the ingredients to create your sauce (based on my recommendations).

There is absolutely no reason to use ingredients which contain gluten if you are, in fact, gluten-free. You simply choose the ingredients you have in your very own cupboard to create your own winning sauce.

Q: "I'm interested in your sauce class but had a question. For health reasons, I need to leave out fat, even the good fat from avocados, ets. Will I still be able to make sauces using your guidelines? Thank you!"

Sassy Sez: Yes, absolutely, you can make sauces without any fat at all. That's the beauty of recipe-free cooking, which is what we teach in all of our courses and throughout our website. You can use whatever you normally have on hand to create delicious vegan meals.   :)

Q: "Can I purchase a hard copy of your sauce book, instead of the e-book?"

Sassy Sez: At this time, Get Sauced With Sass! is not available as a hard copy (sad face.) I used to get so many requests for it, so I went ahead and set it up with a publisher and it turned into such a huuuuge headache and a tremendous cost that it just wasn't worth it for me to do anymore.

The e-book can be purchased, printed up in color, and brought to an office place (like Kinko's) to be bound. Please note, your copy paper should be a bit thicker than regular 20# copy paper so the food pictures do not bleed through to the other side of the page.

Q: How do I download your book?

Sassy Sez: After your purchase, you will be taken to the page with the links to download Get Sauced With Sass! and also your two free eBooks, Your Quick Guide To Flavor Matches and Sassy's Top 10 Favorite Recipes.

In addition, you will receive an email with a link to your order details. Click that link to be taken to the page mentioned above.

You will need Adobe to view the book. Click here to download Adobe Reader -- it's free. (By the way, I recommend you UNCHECK the box that asks if you want to install McAfee Security Scan Plus.)
