That being said, I love this book. I bought the hard cover book rather than the Kindle version, and it is a beautiful book . The paper , layout, and photographs are top quality. There are many full color photos, though not t of every recipe.
My diabetic husband is very picky and hesitant to try anything new or even vaguely exotic. He could and has eaten the same bland dinner every night. I am more adventurous, but have been resistant to trying recipes that use artificial sweeteners. However we both need to lose weight. It's been very difficult to find any recipes that I like and are still suitable for him. I finally "saw the light" and realized I had to make some big changes if I hoped to lose weight. So I committed to using low sugar products,and sugar substitutes, and he committed to being open to try new foods. And this book really does it all for us. Every recipe I've tried has been successful, we both have liked it, and we are both losing weight. I use these recipes for dinner but you could plan all 3 meals a day plus snacks, sides,and desserts from this book; it covers everything. The recipes have been flavorful and interesting, yet not too far out of the range of familiar. This is not a beginner's " I don't know how to boil water" cookbook. You do need to have basic cooking skills like sautéing, making a sauce in the pan, how to follow a recipe, how to measure and mix ingredients for baking
Pros: lots of recipes for everything-beverages, desserts, breads and muffins; all the recipes use common ingredients, nothing exotic, expensive or hard to find; there is detailed nutritional information; the recipes are suitable for diabetics as well as those who want to lose weight.
Cons: many recipes use prepared foods including Splenda, canned soups etc. ( this wasn't a con for me but could be for anyone who wants to use all natural ingredients); this book is are probably not for people with particular requirements like food allergies, vegan, gluten intolerance etc.
Thankfully I've always loved Splenda in my iced tea and thanks to Eat What You Love: More than 300 Incredible Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat and Calories I am able to use Splenda to create luscious desserts. Tonight we enjoyed a delicious chocolate cake for dessert. The recipe used dark brown sugar, Splenda, cocoa, corn oil, buttermilk, egg and vanilla to stir up a rich tasting cake without as many calories or sugar content. As I don't normally keep cake flour in the cupboard I used my usual substitution which is to add 1 tablespoon cornstarch to a scant cup of all-purpose flour. Worked fine in this recipe as the cake turned out tender and moist.
I've also made her recipe for soft-batch chocolate chip cookies which everyone really, really liked. I took some of these cookies to share at my doctor's office and the medical staff raved about how delicious the cookies were. They couldn't believe the cookies were made from a reduced sugar and fat recipe.
I highly recommend this book as it provides a wide selection of reduced sugar and fat recipes. Another bonus is the how the recipes are relatively low in calories.
