    Hi, I’ve just bought your cookbook, enthused by the approach to healthy ingredients and cooking processes. I’m very disappointed to find that very many of the recipes include either honey or maple syrup, both of which are high in fructose- (I realise not as high as sugar, agave and HFCS). Since my objective is to remove all sources of sugar and fructose from my diet, I won’t be able to use many of your recipes. How about recipes with Stevia or Xylitol? Do you have any suggestions for replacing the honey and maple syrup with either of these healthier natural sweeteners?

    • Anna says:

      Hi Mary,
      Honey and maple syrup contain natural sugars which isn’t nearly as bad or quite the same as manmade sugar. Nonetheless, if you would rather not have honey and maple syrup, you will just have to do some trial and error with the other sweeteners to see what amount works the best. Add a little at first then try it, and slowly add more of the sweetener until you have your desired sweetness.
      All the best!

      Hey Mary,

      If you research raw honey and maple syrup, you will quickly discover the high natural sugar content is NOT BAD FOR YOU. Nor will you gain weight eating raw honey or maple syrup.

      Eating things such as bad grains, processed flours, processed sugars and soy products will add weight and lots of carcinogens into your body.

      The entire reason for this cookbook is the SHOW people what eating real foods looks like. Honey and maple syrup are the least of your worries if you are thinking weight gain or poor health.

      Hope that makes sense….just try not to think about the mainstream “marketing” ploys around what made you think those 2 sugars are bad.

      • Flavia says:

        YES, you can use stevia in place for any maple syrup or honey. There is a page all about sweeteners and which ones you can use.
