About this ebook

Less sugar in every meal.
 
Would you feed your child a candy bar for breakfast? Of course not. And yet today our children routinely consume three times the recommended daily allowance of added sugar, which puts them at an unprecedented risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, excess weight, and even nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Half the Sugar, All the Love is here to help, with 100 doctor-approved recipes that cut the sugar (by half—or more!) without sacrificing the flavors our families love. It’s an eye-opening education, a program of healthy eating, and a cookbook chock-full of easy, delicious recipes all in one. Pass the breakfast bars!

I received a free electronic copy of this cookbook from Netgalley, Jennifer Tyler Lee and Anisha Patel, and Workman Publishing. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read Half the Sugar, All the Love of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. I am pleased to refer this cookbook to friends and family. I received this book in June and have been working recipes and ideas from it since then. Some of the sugar cuts in especially beverages and desserts had to be made incrementally or my family fussed, but we have managed over time to adapt to this wonderful idea, and most of the cooking I do now is, as Jennifer Tyler Lee recommends, half the called for sugar, prepared with all the love. Even if you don't have family members with diabetes, excess fluff, or other health problems, cutting our sugar consumption is half can only be a good thing. Following the advice of these ladies makes for an easy transition without resorting to artificial sweeteners.
