My Review of the Sugar Free Family Cookbook
The first I heard of the sugar free diet trend was when a friend informed me that she was doing it and had never felt better. I have to admit that I was more than a little sceptical about this. After all, didn’t going sugar free mean no cake, chocolate, or sweets? That didn’t sound like fun to me at all. But then I was given the opportunity to review the Sugar Free Family Cookbook and I discovered that I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The cookbook starts by explaining why sugars in all their forms are bad for you and what you can do to minimize, substitute, or remove them entirely. The overwhelming advice provided by the book is to just cut out sugar entirely. I was surprised to note that this meant natural sugar as well as refined sugar. Obviously, this isn’t for the faint hearted and among other things would mean cooking all of your food from scratch. The book does however provide a middle ground by suggesting some sugar alternatives that are ok, allowing sweet toothed people like me to still enjoy the odd treat.
The first section of the book goes on to explain why it is a good idea both mentally and physically to feed children a sugar free diet, and suggest a number of changes such as reducing the amount of fruit weaning babies are fed. By the end of this first section of the book you should have all the information you need to decide whether a sugar free diet is right for you and your family, and how you can implement it.
The second section of the book is a traditional recipe book with one big exception, there is no sugar in any of the ingredient lists! Despite this the cookbook still has a large array of recipes for every meal from breakfast to dinner. And most importantly, it also has a large section on cakes and deserts made with sugar substitutes. Proving that you don’t need to give up treats to go sugar free.
I will be very honest and say that I don’t think a sugar free diet is for me. The Sugar Free Family Cookbook makes a very compelling case for the health benefits of going sugar free but following the diet does require mean changing every aspect of the what you eat and how you prepare it. In order to go sugar free you will have to be dedicated enough to cook all of your food from scratch, give up most pre-packaged foods, and avoid eating out. Unfortunately this is just not something I feel capable of.
