Half the Sugar, All the Love: 100 Easy, Low-Sugar Recipes for Every Meal of the Day
By Jennifer Tyler Lee and Anisha Patel
DescriptionToday our kids consume at least three times the recommended daily allowance of sugar. And it's not just because they are drinking too many sodas. Added sugar lurks everywhere in our food--in yogurts and bottled salad dressings, in jarred tomato sauce and oatmeal packets, and on and on. And it's a real problem--excess sugar can lead to a variety of health issues, including cavities, of course, but also type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and fatty liver disease.
Here to help concerned parents is a family cookbook that addresses the problem with reduced-sugar versions of kids' favorite foods, including dessert. Functioning like a cross between Eat This, Not That and Deceptively Delicious, Half the Sugar, All the Love is an eye-opening education, an action plan, and a cookbook all in one. It shows us how to shop smartly to avoid hidden sugars. Busts the most common myths about sugar (honey is not healthier, sugar substitutes are questionable at best). Gives seven easy tips for globally reducing added sugar at home. Helps us stock our pantries with better ingredients. And then offers 100 family-friendly recipes that minimize added sugar while maximizing flavor, from granolas and yogurt pops for breakfast through big-batch sauces to make the tastiest dinners, to ingenious desserts--like the author's favorite Chocolate and Peanut Butter Snack Cake that gets its sweetness from dates.
