Okay, no I didn’t quit sugar but I read the book I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson. And honestly, I was disappointed in this book. It’s more like a magazine/cook book of impossible recipes. This author’s perspective of eating too much sugar meant eating a lot of fruit and sweetened granola in a day. Okay, let me get this straight, she’s addicted to fruit and granola and that’s a bad thing? That’s like one of my life goals….to be addicted to good-for-you-foods. I would consider that an accomplishment. But the overall negative effects of sugar on her body led her to quit sugar altogether and in this book she lays out an 8 week plan for coming off sugar.
While there were some helpful articles and bits of information I found the cook book impractical and unrealistic for me personally. I just don’t see myself making Lavender ice cream. I’ve never felt the need to add a smell-good relaxing agent to my ice cream. And I don’t even know what to say about the recipe for Summery quinoa tabbouleh. All I can think of is the Taliban. I could never eat it for fear of terrorists. Unless I ate the lavender ice cream first. Then I might could swallow or chew or whatever you do to tabbouleh.
This book was not a good fit for me but I feel that there are others who would enjoy this book and love it. Just not me. Sigh. I hate giving negative reviews.
