Living Without's Favorite Books: No More White Sugar
Want to nix refined sugar from your gluten-free diet? Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free, 180 Easy and Delicious Recipes You Can Make in 20 Minutes or Less (Ulysses Press) can help. This book by Amy Green, an extension of her simplysugarandglutenfree.com blog, was inspired by the author’s own struggle with health and weight problems caused by hard-to-control cravings for white sugar and flour. (Sound familiar?) Easy-to-make recipes from starters and snacks to main dishes and desserts use wholesome ingredients in creative ways—example: Chocolate Black Bean Brownies (walnuts optional). Speaking of desserts, Green uses natural sweeteners, like coconut palm sugar, agave nectar, brown rice syrup, and alternative whole-grain flours to satisfy without table sugar and gluten. Start here to loosen the grip of all that white stuff.
