Daisy Lowe shuns sugar

Daisy Lowe

Daisy Lowe has published a cookery book after constantly looking for "guilt-free" snacks to satisfy her sweet tooth.

The model, who's the daughter of Pearl Lowe and Gavin Rossdale, freely admits to having the "worst sweet tooth", but has to curb her sugary cravings because of her job.

Instead of cutting out snacks though, 25-year-old Daisy decided to come up with her own delicious recipes. It's thanks to this kitchen research that she's come to publish a book of food ideas.

"When I became a model my mum and grandma joked that I'd missed my calling. My whole career I've been trying to find a way to satisfy my sweet tooth that isn't harmful to my body. I started experimenting with guilt-free alternatives and my mum suggested I write a book," Daisy explained to British magazine Grazia. "It went from there. My poor guinea-pig friends had to come over for testing days. I'm not saying my recipes are fat-free or diet food - it's still baking, just more easily digestible."

Aside from feeding up her friends and family, Daisy is also very aware about the responsibility that comes with being in the spotlight.

Having modelled for brands such as Chanel and Vivienne Westwood, Daisy has amassed a fan following.

"I get so many tweets asking, 'How do you stay thin?' Not that I am particularly thin [but] if I can look after five 14-year-old girls and make them feel like they can still enjoy food, that makes my job worthwhile. I'm quite maternal and try to influence my friends when I can," she reasoned.

And it's not just her young fans that benefit from Daisy's experiences behind the stove.

"I make really good fried chicken. And boys like my roasts. I was always good at cooking all my exes' favourites," she laughed.
