My Thoughts:
My Husband and I have been quitting sugar for quite sometime. This year my husband has quit drinking soda and the health benefits have been tremendous. Earlier this year, I talked about a documentary called Fed Up where it is all about how sugar is killing Americans and how it is embedded in our food without us knowing it. I love how Sarah takes on recipes that are not your traditional thought and puts a lot of unique ingredients, which I have found to be the case going sugar free. Many of the recipes for this cookbook are whole and include things for breakfast, snacks, meats, fish, veggies, leftovers, desserts and holidays. I love that with leftover she talks about how to stretch your money with the ingredients you have and how to stretch your leftover without wasting. Sarah is full of great tips too, so don't worry if you're not a cook! I'm not at all! 
The photography and photos are excellent, you're mouth will be watering to try some of these recipes. I have several marked that I can't wait to try out. If you're looking to cut the sugar and add real sugar like honey, none of that artificial garbage, go with this book! Go with real sugar if you're going to eat it, as opposed to fake.

Thank you to the publishers for providing me a complimentary copy for my review. This book receives 5/5 stars.

I actually just talked to my coach yesterday about my sugar intake. I know it is too much despite my petite size. So my goal is to start eating much healthier including no more nightly big bowls of ice cream. Occasional treats are fine, but just not every day.

I'm right there with you, Pam. I might be short and small, but I've got to watch it. We have sugar issues in our family and I'm not going to have that problem. Getting it under control now!
