REVIEW That Sugar Book by Damon Gameau

That Sugar Book, Damon Gameau, review, cookbook, documentary, competition, betty bake, pan mac millan, avoid sugar, recipes,

This book is for anyone who means business about their health. Not only is it very educational it clearly walks you down a path of what kinds of sugar there are in the world BUT also the health community is eating... The so called "healthy" snacks we all think we are doing so well with-in our kids lunch boxes and snacks. Things like fruit juices and health bars etc... I mean they are healthy aren't they???  Well surprise surprise we may not be that healthy after all.

Gluten-Free NOT so healthy RANT!

gluten free, health, sugar is terrible, avoid the bad stuff, heal your body, health coach, gluten free biscuits

I love to find gluten-free recipes on the internet but just lately Ive been more and more shocked when I see that even though the gluten has been swapped out in the recipe for other flours the sugar is still there and sometimes its even MORE than before to mask some of the different tasting flour alternatives!
We often love to believe that when we are gluten-free we are soooo healthy! I mean we know that gluten can be bad for some of us and wreak havoc in our bodies ... but don't be fooled that just because you made a gluten-free cake you can eat if for breakfast, lunch and supper - I means its gluten-free so it must be healthy right ;) ... I just wanted to point a little finger at sugar and other nasties that could be in your baking or food that is just as bad for your digestion. I know we all want to be the best and healthiest version of ourselves - YAY! So lets strive for less sugar and more natural ways to baking and cooking. (here's looking at you gluten-free biscuits in the shops- they sneak in lots of other junk!)

Please note in this little rant I know I'm not perfect but Im trying to remember that my body is worth beautiful food and support so that it feels nourished. So this post is as much for me as it is for any one else wanting a happy body... minus the the inflammation (hint: sugar can cause inflammation)
