It is TERRIBLE. All of her recipes taste like a musty couch that someone promised is nutritious. Lady, amaranth is sour. It is bitter and is not a breakfast food, no matter how long you soak it. I also cannot take the lazy, derivative way that she straight up steals recipes from other blogs, makes the recipe 'gluten free' instead of normal, and now its "her" recipe, ridiculous. This is made even worse by the fact that once you get through alllllll her droning on and skinny girl "facts", she goes and uses sugar substitutes. (!?) The proven scientific fact is: if it tastes like sugar, your brain treats it like sugar. So, no substitution of raw cane syrup, raw whatever makes a difference. This book is essentially a very thin woman making unsubstantiated claims about sugar, and then realizing that all her food tastes like dirt and subsequently stating its OK to use sugar substitutes. Again, why?!
A significant portion of the book is dedicated to smoothies. Smoothies. Really. Like--anyone has time to make smoothies. Or time to wash the blenders, and then do it all again the next day before work? She's clearly never held a real job. The portion of the book that is not dedicated to smoothies is --get this-- a breakfast OR dessert section! She claims that ALL her sugar free desserts are also acceptable breakfasts--so she doesn't include any breakfasts. Give me a break.
If you are a vegetarian or vegan and are just looking for some healthy food that is sugar and carcass and excrement free, keep searching. She's a glutton for meat and cheese and dairy and makes no suggestions for you whatsoever.
When she does finally get around to recipes, many of them are like, in paragraph form, and in-line. They're not bolded, bulleted out in list form, nor do they even give actual AMOUNTS! Prairie mother over here uses measurements such as "bit" and "pinch" cus she thinks its cutesy. I guess. This book is bad, don't buy it. "Hashes" as she calls them, are the only truly edible meals, and they're just Buddha bowls. Get on youtube, and go find actual cooking tips, this is a money grab.

Having some sugar related issues, it is an ideal situation to be able to live without processed sugars, but reading a book is not going to make it a reality for everyone. Good on Sarah for being so organised and persistent.
Not a lot of vegetarian info though.
It really isn’t about quitting sugar.
