Sugar-Free Mom is a woman on a mission to reduce and eliminate added, processed sugars in her families lives. She focuses on using natural sugars and sugar free substitutes to create healthier versions of popular and beloved recipes. Since 2011, her blog has become the most popular sugar-free source on the web today. She has a devoted following of those looking to simply reduce sugar consumption, many who follow a low carb diet and many who have multiple allergies. Her readers can identify with her as her own children have tree nut, peanut, and soy allergies and she herself has a gluten and dairy intolerance. She is a mom who had to give up sugar, but still wants chocolate working hard to maintain her weight loss. With her 3 children who keep her very busy she strives to balance it all and still provide healthy, homemade meals that don’t require too much time in the kitchen. Her cookbook, Sugar-Free Mom, Naturally Sweet & Sugar-Free Recipes for the Whole Family is available now for pre-order and will be released December 9, 2014.
A few words from Brenda:
I am not a nutritionist, never took a cooking class but cooking has been in my blood since I was a little girl in a big Italian family. I love photography, but still feel I’m an amateur. I am a health conscious mom who tries her best to eat foods as natural as possible. My natural sugar substitutes of choice are sucanat, or raw, unfiltered honey, and sugar-free substitutes are stevia and erythritol. Here’s a post about them: Top 3 Refined Sugar Free Sweeteners. To find out more about the stevia products I use check this post: Top 3 Best Stevia Products.
You will not find any recipes that include using white refined flour or sugar, brown sugar, agave nectar, Splenda or other artificial sweeteners. Here’s a post all about why I won’t use Splenda: 3 Splenda Myths Busted.
I have been successfully maintaining a 50 pound weight loss for the last 8 years since my third child was born. My experience is my own and I share what I’ve learned. I hope to help others achieve their weight loss goals through healthy eating tips and recipes! If you’d like the full details of how I became sugar-free, please read My Journey.
