Book Review: "I Quit Sugar" by Sarah Wilson

A few months ago, I began following Sarah Wilson's blog and am being careful about the amount and
type of sugar my family eats.  So, when I had a chance to review her new book, "I Quit Sugar", I was really excited to receive it.

First of all, this book is very easy to read and understand.  Ms. Wilson begins her book with why she decided to quit eating sugar and educates us about the different types of sugars and their effects on our bodies.

Then she shares her 8-week detox program,which I thought seemed entirely doable.  My 13-year old daughter who loves sweets suggested we do this together as a family, so it can't be that bad!

Then, there are the recipes...  Ms. Wilson has included some really easy recipes that don't require a plethora of weird ingredients.  As a matter of fact, other than brown rice syrup (never tried the stuff before), we pretty much have everything thing in our pantry already.  The items she's included look good, too, and makes me (and my daughter) believe this is a change we could live with... and excited to give it a go.

In summary, Ms. Wilson encourages her readers to make different choices by educating us about the different types of sugars and their effect on our bodies.  She is an understanding teacher and shares that in her food journey, she has made mistakes along the way and how to handle the times she's "fallen off the wagon".  I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to improve their health and to be able to say , "I Quit Sugar"!
