    This review is from: I Quit Sugar (Kindle Edition)
    I knew sugar wasn’t good for me, and I knew I ate too much of it, but giving up sugar is something I never considered. Sugar is both personal and social for me, and not eating it sounded wickedly depriving and isolating. Not to mention impossible. So I read this just out of curiosity, not so much believing I would do it. Sarah gives the idea of quitting sugar (specifically, fructose) a spin that piqued my interest. She doesn’t claim you absolutely have to eat any certain way, like most books. She approaches the whole thing as an invitation to experiment, and shares the reasons she quit sugar, as well as the ways that she eased into the experiment herself. For the first time, I wondered how much sugar was really affecting me, and whether it might be interesting to try and find out. So the book made me curious, then followed up with a slew of ideas and tools to make a sugar-free experiment feel possible. Tricks, recipes of tasty things to try, things to look for on labels, ideas about what can replace sugar in your day, a list of foods you can take shopping, things you can say if you get hostile reactions from friends, ways to find a path for yourself. She keeps reminding you to do it curiously, gently, not rigidly the way other books preach. She gives a very useful 8 week outline with helpful ideas for each week, but every bit of it is open for your own personal experimentation. No guilt. I think that was the most appealing part of her approach for me – there is no shaming attached, no absolutes about the right way to eat the rest of your life, no “diet” mentality or mention of a required weight you have to reach to feel good about yourself, no guilt trips for making mistakes. Just the invitation to see what happens after 8 weeks. The idea is that at the end, once your system is cleared of sugar and you’ve learned about your own body in the process, you are really free and informed to choose the way you want to eat. So this book accomplished something I never saw coming – it put me into the right mindset so that going sugar free for awhile was actually exciting rather than painful for me. Four weeks into it, I feel myself getting healthier and couldn’t be happier that I found her approach. The book is short and easy to read, and I like a lot of the recipes she shares. The only negative things about the book for me are: some of the recipes use metric measurements because she is Australian, which confuses me a bit, and occasionally she uses names for ingredients that I am not familiar with. She relies on nuts and coconut in many of her recipes, which I love, but my husband hates coconut and my son doesn’t like nuts so they don’t always want to eat what I am eating. But she encourages experimentation and personalization anyway, so I’m figuring out what works for me and my family.

    e-book waste of money, go to website instead, November 15, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I don’t usually write reviews but I was annoyed with this book and felt compelled to warn others. Don’t bother with this e-book, go to Sarah’s website instead. an actual physical copy of this book might be ok but not the e-book and here is why.
    the price wasn’t worth it for the e-book, it was too short of a book and like some of the other reviews say it was very broad.
    I’m sure the recipes are good but the e-book just links to Sarah’s website rather than actually having them in the book which I why it would be best just to go to her website.
    a small contradiction in one of the chapters/weeks where it says avoid fruit but there is a green smoothie recipe that has an apple in it
    there some good notes in the book but again you could probably get them from the website

    If this book was something like $3, I would not be giving this review but this book does not have enough value to warrant the $10.56 price tag

    I love the first two I Quit Sugar books, June 3, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I’m a big fan of Sarah Wilson, and have been reading her blogs and following her for about two years now. I have all her cookbooks, some in print version and some in ebooks format. I love the first two I Quit Sugar books, but they aren’t really big and chock-full recipe books. Rather, they support a more relaxed and easily approachable way of home-cooking that as an uptight former recipe junkie, I find really soothing. What does this mean? It means to me that not every meal I make has to be worthy of Ina Garten or Martha Stewart dropping by for dinner. But I can still eat creative, simple things that nourish and sustain me, and taste pretty good too.

    That said, not everyone will be pleased with I Quit Sugar Healthy Family Meals. Of the recipes included are a full page for vegetable stock and another full page for beef stock, another full page on how to cook quinoa and several other items well known to most home cooks. The few actual dinner recipes are surely healthy, but maybe a little odd to American tastes. There are a lot of recipes for “mash,” a concept that seems self-explanatory but may yet cause some confusion. We eat a lot of mash potatoes in the U.S., but mashed peas? It’s an idea harried home cooks here should embrace, but it needs a bit more presentation, I think, before it becomes a roaring success in the states.

    Another problem with the book that most of Sarah Wilson’s cookbooks suffer from is the use of lamb as an economical meat. Lamb is likely a reasonable meat in Australia, one of the top sheep producers in the world, but not in the U.S.! Here it is a pricey, luxury meat. No way you could serve even “mince” (read “ground”) lamb here for cheap!

    I was a bit surprised recently to read that Sarah Wilson had lived in California for a while to attend college. It makes me wonder why, with her book I Quit Sugar hitting the U.S. market in a big way, more effort hasn’t been made to make her other books more translatable to Americans. Now, part of the charm of her books for me is that they have a little (for me) exotic Aussie flavor, but not sure how well that goes over with your average home cook trying to make economical, healthy family meals. Perhaps part of the issue is that it looks like the I Quit Sugar books are written by other people than Sarah. The more recent books have had less of Sarah’s personal mark and felt more generic.

    I’ll still buy any I Quit Sugar book that comes out, but I already have a good idea what to expect.
