Description

Many cookbooks claim to be sugar free and this is where I get frustrated!


I have spent a lot of my hard earned money on these “sugar free” cookbooks thinking I was making a healthy choice. Wow, if only I knew then what I know now, I’d have spent my cookbook money on a nice pair of shoes, something I would have actually got some use out of!


Every sugar free cookbook I bought was LOADED in sugar, yes you read that right, LOADED in sugar! I think these cookbooks should have stated that they don’t contain white refined sugar, or that they are white refined sugar free. Just my opinion! “Sugar free” sounds to me like there is no sugar in the recipe.


My next frustration was my creations never tasted as good as the picture looked. Maybe I’m a rubbish cook, maybe it was all the sweeteners or maybe the recipes were indeed just too hard to follow, I have no idea, but rather than just moan about it, I’ve done something about it. I have enlisted the help of my good friend Leigh Brown (who can cook) and together we have created some simple, everyday creations with honesty about how much sugar is in these foods. Our book is full of easy everyday recipes that anyone can do. Nothing fancy pants, just good honest information on everyday foods and ideas. Both Leigh and I both hope you enjoy our book.
