Since we're talking about sugar today, it only makes sense to review a Sugar-free cookbook, right?


Synopsis:

Sugar whether refined or natural is in almost everything we eat! The Sugar-Free kitchen shows you how easy it is to reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet while still enjoying fresh and tasty dishes. You will discover how both refined and natural sugar affects the body, how it has snuck into our food and the health benefits of eating more quality protein, whole foods, and good fats. Advice on stocking your pantry as well as how to deal with sugar cravings, gives you a head start toward challenging your everyday eating habits. Beautiful pictures and recipes will guide you to a healthier life in no time!


Review:

This new book is part of the Healthy Kitchen series from Parragon Books and Love Food (I'll be reviewing another volume, the Clean-Eating Kitchen, next Friday). This book covers Breakfast, Lunches and Snacks, Dinner (Main Dishes), and Desserts, 50 recipes in all. Every recipe is accompanied by a full page color picture-something all cooks LOVE to see!

It is a greater starter book, to get you on your way to seeing how you can substitute, or use other ingredients, and avoid the unnecessary sugar and fructose in your diets. We are constantly barraged with new food products and they seem great, until you read the labels and realize just about all of them have unnecessary sugar. This cookbook gives you easy prep and wonderful tasting foods, that anyone can cook.You can skip the packaged foods and have a quality meal in almost the same amount of time! I recommend it as a great way to get your family's diet healthier, and for holiday gift giving!


Here's a great recipe that you can use to get more veggies into your kids diet, while they're enjoying a sweet treat. It's also a great recipe to use for the holidays, to help keep your diet healthy and balanced!

  3. The ice cream looks delicious. I think I would be hesitant on trying the brownies though!

  4. A cookbook like this comes in particularly handy as people start to look for ways to reduce their calorie intake as part of their weight loss resolutions.
