Low-Sugar, So Simple: 100 Delicious Low-Sugar, Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Recipes for Eating Clean and Living Healthy Paperback – Illustrated, 2 January 2018
Sugar is quickly becoming the next health epidemic. Numerous studies have confirmed that sugar is a highly addictive substance with catastrophic effects on our health. Research has shown that drinking a can of soda a day increases the risk of heart attack nearly as much as smoking.
Avoiding sugar isn't easy. Sugar lurks in everything from condiments to salad dressing to deli meat. Combine that with the fact that many more foods contain things like starches, fillers, and artificial ingredients which act like sugar in the body, and you've got a perfect storm for lifelong sugar addiction and diminished health.
Low-Sugar, So Simple shows you how to get sugar off your plate for good. Popular blogger, Elviira Krebber of Low-Carb, So Simple provides 100 low and no sugar recipes for everything from condiments to main dishes to desserts.
You'll learn healthy substitutions for sugar, how to remove stealth sugars, and get the sugar pretenders like starches, fillers, and additives out of your diet. Done in the authors trademark approachable style, eating low sugar is easy with several recipes that are quick and have few ingredients.

Two-Minute Mile-High English Muffin in a Mug
A few basic ingredients and a couple of minutes are all you need to whip up a low-sugar English muffin that’s the perfect vehicle for just about any kind of topping, such as salad, meat, eggs, cheese, or veggies. Or, for an elegant yet-filling weekend treat, try filling it with lox, cream cheese, dill, and red onion. You won’t even miss the bagel!
Yield: 1 serving
1. Grease a microwave-safe cup with softened butter. (The higher and narrower the cup, the better the muffin will rise).
2. Combine the almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl, taking care to break up any lumps. Add the egg and mix well with a spoon. Add the carbonated water and mix well again. Spoon the batter into the greased cup, then microwave on high for 2 minutes. (Check the muffin after 1 minute and adjust the total cooking time according to your microwave oven).
3. Remove the muffin from the cup, let cool slightly, slice, and enjoy warm with your favorite toppings, or toast it, if you like.

When changing your diet, most certainly you will need to change your grocery list. If you are familiar with ingredients such as: whey protein, almond and coconut flour, psyllium husk powder and erythritol, you are good to go. Those were the "out of ordinary" ingredients I found that are used extensively. If you are vegan, this is not your book at all. Recipes can include eggs, meat and dairy products. Those on keto diet can benefit from these recipes as well. For all of you who simply want to cut on sugars/carbs without the strictness of a keto diet, this is a great option.
PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST!
Yes, you heard me, there is a "pizza" recipe in the breakfast section and while ingredient-wise it is an omelet, it looks like a cute pizza and I love it. Comforting chicken zoodle (spiralized zucchini) soup was another favorite of mine. However, most of the recipes weren't love at first sight. I expected that "low sugar, so simple" would be more about popular recipes that are naturally low on sugars and carbs without the need of special ingredients. The book is divided into basics & pantry staples, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts and drinks which makes it easy for choosing a whole day menu. The three dishes on the front cover are good examples of easy recipes with common ingredients, so you can actually find those as well. Yum!
