About this item

Energy, lightness, vitality - life without sugar is sweet indeed!Who doesn't love dessert, and rely on a sugar kick to pick us up mid-afternoon? Ella Léche used to consider herself a healthful eater. She ate salads; she drank water. But like so many of us, she also looked forward to her daily sweet treats. Then, after the birth of her first child she suffered debilitating weakness and fatigue, to the point where she collapsed to the ground while holding her newborn. The diagnosis was Myasthenia Gravis, a rare and sometimes degenerative autoimmune neuromuscular condition for which there is little effective treatment (famous sufferers include Aristotle Onassis and Christopher Milne, son of A.A. Milne and inspiration for Christopher Robin, both of whom died from complications of the disease). Ella’s future looked grim, until, out of desperation, she tried eliminating the too much of other things she had also been eating — wheat, processed foods, dairy, meat, and most of all, sugar.The result was near-miraculous. Slowly but surely, cutting sugars and flours restored her to a health and vitality she had feared might be lost to her forever. But it did more than that. Her new sugar-free life also freed her from her frequent headaches, mood swings, and energy slumps. In short, she felt better than ever before.Cut The Sugar offers 101 of Ella's delicious, healthy, and easy recipes of sugar-free and low-sugar options for every meal and occasion. With a holistic, nutrient-dense approach using real, whole foods — all beautifully photographed by Ella herself, and written in her encouraging, upbeat, grounded voice, Cut the Sugar is an inspirational and accessible guide to the sweet life. Recipes include both fan favorites as well as many all-new offerings, including:
  • Superfood Chocolate Protein Bars
  • Almond Cacao Nib Biscotti
  • Berry Swirl Raw Cheesecake
  • Sweet Potato Chocolate Brownies
