Colonial Baked Apples with Cherries
Easy is the operative word here. This dessert is easy to make-and even easier to eat. Try these cherry- and nut-filled baked apples for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. Cherries are low on the glycemic index and contain an abundance of antioxidants, such as vitamin C. Apples are also high in vitamin C, which stabilizes blood sugar levels and minimizes sugar cravings.
—2 tablespoons (30 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
—1/3 cup (60 g) dried cherries
—3 tablespoons (25 g) chopped walnuts
—1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
—2 tablespoons (30 ml) honey or maple syrup
—6 apples, cored
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4). Spray a baking sheet with nonstick vegetable spray. In a bowl, mix together the lemon juice, cherries, walnuts, lemon zest, and honey or maple syrup. Place the cored apples on the baking sheet. Fill each apple with the cherry-nut mixture. Bake until the apples are soft, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Chapter 1 titled "Sugar Free 101" is a great way to review the basics for breaking sugar addiction (I didn't know NutraSweet had so many side effects!) Next is an easy to interpret rating system that allows you to identify which sugar addiction profile you qualify for.
The table of contents directs you to your specific profile type with an organized format of breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes. Even desserts! Each recipe indicates the blood sugar balance rating from None (no useful quantity) to High (optimal level). The chapters allow you to choose recipes that appeal vs. their blood sugar balance rating. My favorite recipes are the "Speedy Stir Fry" followed by the tasty "Cherry Yogurt Freeze" for a cool summer dessert :)
I have struggled with Candida for a very long time, tried and failed many diet regimes. I've finally found a cookbook that not only has great recipes but is informative about my specific sugar addiction problem, and addresses many others. It is educational, informative, and easy to navigate and understand. The categories are well organized, with quick health tips throughout. There are also many useful references at the end.
I highly recommend the "Beat Sugar Addiction Now! Cookbook" to anyone on a quest to lower their sugar intake while losing weight and improving their overall health - without sacrificing satisfaction at mealtime!
Update: I removed another star because I tried two more recipes and they were both bad. My husband will eat everything I cook and never complains. Tonight he asked me what cookbook I have been cooking from lately and recommended I dont use it anymore. I tried to make a "meat"loaf with veggies and lentils but the density was wrong and it became a pilaf. Today I made a gingered halibut and the sauce had no flavor.
Honestly, I am really disappointed because the recipes all look great. I can make most recipes work but I dont think the writers know what they're doing. Im going to throw this book away,
