Flash back to August last year when I first watched That Sugar Film and then raced to read That Sugar Book before of course, actually quitting sugar. I talk all about my health and nutritional journey in my first review and I guess that this review will kind of be like my "where are they now?" episode!
So, gosh, this is my tenth month sugar free!!! Its been a journey. For the first six months I was anal and didn't eat anything with high fructose or sucrose. As time as passed though I've learned to be much gentler on myself and those who sometimes cook for me. My biggest problem before was being unable to moderate portions, and binging on shitty foods resulting in shitty (you know what). This is the same as Damon, little self control have we. However, now I'm more like Zoe. I can have a biscuit once a week and first of all, not eat the packet and second of all, say "holy clap that is sweet and rich and intense" when eating a scotch biscuit.
That Sugar Guide goes through all the same science as the first book, but goes more into depth and gives you the low down on sweeteners, grains and gut health. The Gameau's are like my ideal neighbours; smart, funny, wise and capable of cooking up a feast for our block parties. I would honestly read anything they wrote and cook anything they've cooked. I'm like a little groupie actually....
There are so many amazing recipes for those beginning life sugar free and also for those who have beaten the cravings. I have honestly made a bunch of different meals, snacks and "sweets" but generally have started tucking in before I remember to actually take a photo. So see below the dishes I have made and showed incredible self restraint with. You're welcome.
