Following up on her bestselling book I Quit Sugar, health expert Sarah Wilson returns with 306 sugar-free recipes in Simplicious.
Showing you how to shop, cook and eat without using sugar and other processed foods, the book also covers how you can buy these kind of ingredients in bulk and freeze and preserve them - and create tasty food using the leftovers.
From guilt-free sweet treats to one-pot wonders and nutrient-filled delights, this book will help you embrace the health-giving benefits of tasty sugar-free food.
As a diabetic I have to be very careful what I eat, particularly as my glucose level have been a bit high just recently. This book is a disgrace, masquerading as a sugar-free book. I bought it and when it arrived and I looked at the recipes she uses rice malt syrup, allegedly instead of sugar, in all her recipes. I googled rice malt sugar and it is just sugar by another description. My glucose levels would be through the roof if I used this stuff. The only thing I can say is if you want to quit sugar or are diabetic, don't get this or any of her other books. I was going to return the books that I bought, but it was going to cost more in postage than I paid for them. I am now in two minds what to do with them - donate them to a charity shop, or throw them away so that no one else gets stuck with these fake "I quit sugar " books.

I Quit Sugar: Simplicious -
I love this book. I use it every day. I read it from cover to cover before I even used any of the recipes. It encourages you to be more creative with cooking and the ingredients always have a few alternatives to use, not like your standard cookbook. The handwritten"scrawl" gives the book a personal touch and the author's personality and enthusiasm jumps off every page. The whole book is about less waste in the kitchen, reusing, saving time cooking, spending less, using those leftovers, cooking from scratch and this all leads to quitting sugar.
I'm not entirely sure why I'm not keen on this book, perhaps the layout, the scrawly writing. The fact that she uses sugar replacements like stevia or rice malt syrup. And using a microwave to make puddings. I think to your average Joe who gorges on sugar, then it's a great start. But if you are already healthy and the only 'sugar' you consume is fruit and the odd bit of dark chocolate, then I think there are better books out there.
