Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I don`t need to be convinced by the potential joys of sugar-free living - I`ve all but cut out sugar from my diet (for about eighteen months now) and it`s been nothing but good for me.

Do I miss some of the rubbish I used to eat and love though? Yes. I used to eat scones and roulades and ice-cream, and all sorts of other stuff that were only good for you whilst you ate them, and were bad forever after.

This beautifully presented book lays out a tremendous variety of desserts, cakes, snacks, treats and sauces that will fill the gap filled by all the things you knew you shouldn`t eat - but with only a slight tweak of ingredients, now you can. Of course, you have to cook them first, and the level of personal ability in the kitchen is not irrelevant here, but coupled with the useful intro, advising of the damage sugar does to us and of the alternatives and their respective benefits, this is a comprehensive recipe book which will hopefully help you to break an addiction to the white stuff.

I will definitely make Strawberry Scones, Raspberry Tarts, the Low-Carb Dessert Pastry and of course Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! One of the most impressive things about the book is that generally there aren`t too many obscure requirements; balsamic vinegar and rice milk are about as exotic as it gets. Most of the recipes rely on standard ingredients and healthy options.

After a period of time, even the most committed dieter/healthy eater will want to have something delicious like the gateau and pastries; this can often result in the depressing feeling of failure and a fall back into bad previous habits. This book will help to keep me on the "right" path, as I like cooking, I love desserts, and I want to enjoy my food whilst continuing to do the right things.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I suffer from very bad Candida, after a very long dose of anti biotic a few years ago. One of the needs for Candida suffers is to cut out all/as much sugar (of all types) as is possible from the diet. If you have ever tried cutting sugar out from your diet, you will find it is quite difficult, unless you make everything yourself, which in its self is difficult. With a cookbook like this, the process of making sugar free food should be that little bit easier.

Sugar of all types and yeast, feeds Candida. Sugar can also spike Blood Pressure, so both these things are eased when you cut out all forms of sugar (sativa does not have too many bad effects on BP or Candida). The problem is what you can then eat without sugar, can become very limited. We converted to Setiva a year ago and this book focuses on recipes which use this sugar substitute. Personally I have no bad after-taste from using this product and have found the lowest price for it is at Morrison's supermarket. So I ordered this book from the Vine list, looked forward to receiving it and when it arrived went through the recipes and found with dismay, it uses some pretty nasty alternatives to sugar, which are not allowed, if you have Candida. It uses other natural sweeteners, fruit, vegetables, honey, dried fruit which are no no's on a Candida diet. So as a whole, this is not a book that will help Candida suffers, but in fairness it does not claim to be. What the title suggests is that it is SUGAR FREE, which again in fairness it is not. Fructose can be very bad for Blood Pressure and it is a sugar and this book uses fruit......so its really a book about substituting the white cane type for other sugar types, it is not a Sugar Free book. This is a bit misleading.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been "clean eating" for a while now and although I don't deny myself cake if I want it, my sweet tooth is such that I wanted to make some healthier treats. I ordered this book thinking that "sugar free" would be natural sugars, however, most of the recipes use artificial sweetener so not what I thought it would be. For this reason, I hadn't made anything from the book but recently returned having been diagnosed with gestational diabetes but even with the use of sweeteners, I think the flours etc used would put my bloods over. This book just isn't for my personal circumstances, however, I would say that the pictures are beautiful and appetizing and may be of assistance to those following Weight Watchers (I did that a few years ago and would have loved this then)

I may have leapt into this without thinking properly. I do bake and would love to find recipes that cut back on sugar, as I don't know if you can just haphazardly cut down the amount and still get decent results, but I haven't necessarily felt I wanted to cut it out completely and substitute something else. Anyway, this does say in bold print Sugar Free, doh.
Sugar is the bad guy just now and the easiest way to cut back is to stop eating and drinking the usual suspects and try to be aware of which foodstuffs have hidden piles lurking within.
This book uses Stevia a lot. My biggest problem is I cannot easily get hold of Stevia at present, living on a Scottish island which does its best but we haven't got round to stocking Stevia yet. It also uses other natural sweeteners, fruit, vegetables, honey, dried fruit. Many of these produce their own sugar - glucose, fructose, sucrose - so still sugar as the book's author points out.
In the Recipe Finder all the recipes are listed in a table that tells you the page number and whether it is gluten/dairy free, suitable for vegetarians or vegans, contains eggs or nuts. The recipes are in chapters - Muffins, Cakes, Desserts, Ice Creams, Snacks, Sauces and Spreads and more.
Some of the baking stuff looks quite nice (not all recipes are pictured). Having no stevia I tried an Oatmeal and Raisin Cookie, the sweetness coming from 160g of raisins. It was an odd recipe - raisins, porridge oats, oil and boiling water. You baked the cookies for 45mins and then left to cool oven off for 20 mins. A long time in the world of cookie baking. They were a little odd, not very exciting, but I won't throw them out. I may try again with a heaped teaspoon of cinnamon or mixed spice.
What would have been handy on the recipes is a note of the calories in everything you make.
If losing table sugar from cooking is your goal this is a good find.
