It’s dinnertime. Do you know where your sugar is coming from?
Most likely everywhere. Sure, it’s in ice cream and cookies and apple pie, but what scared Eve O. Schaub was the secret world of sugar- the sugar she found lurking in bacon, crackers, salad dressing, pasta sauce, chicken broth and baby food.
With her eyes opened to the insidiousness of sugar by the work of obesity expert Dr. Robert Lustig and others, Eve challenged her husband and two school-age daughters to join her in a search for meals that would contain absolutely no added sugar- for an entire year.
Along the way, Eve became a sugar sleuth who uncovered the real costs of our sugar-heavy American diet- including diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cancer. The stories, tips and recipes she shares from her family’s year of no sugar throw fresh light on questionable nutritional advice we’ve been following for years and show that it is possible to eat at restaurants, go grocery shopping, and do everything a normal family needs and wants to do- with less and even no added sugar.
Year of No Sugar is what the conversation about “kicking the sugar addiction” looks like for a real American family- a roller coaster of unexpected discoveries and challenges.
