    Concerned about your pre-diabetic parent? Look no further.

    My father is pre-diabetic but dreams of opening a bakery shop. As a connoisseur of all things delicious, my father often makes the wrong decisions and isn't as conscious of his condition as he should be. I wanted to find him a desserts cookbook that would produce selections that were not only eliminated refined sugars, but was guilt-free. Well, as guilt-free as desserts can ever become!

    I scoured the internet for a week looking for the perfect book. I eliminated anything with "Diabetes" in the title--my father was not diabetic and I wouldn't entertain the idea in the form of a gift. Plus, all of those books simply replaced sugar with Spelndarific artificial sweeteners, which I'm certain does nothing for flavor and we all know we should avoid anyway. He also doesn't have celiac disease. Publishers should understand when you make your title super-specific title, you're downsizing your market significantly.

    No, I was looking for a book that utilized unprocessed natural sweeteners while also promoting health-consciousness that actually tasted GOOD. And NO mention of diabetes. This is where most cookbooks failed: white all-purpose flour littered ingredients lists and their idea of a natural sweeteners were oozing with processed molasses and juice concentrates, without skipping a beat. No refined sugars my overindulgent father's appetite.

    The authors of 175 NSD targeted their book to "health-conscious people." Revolutionary. What 175 NSD offers is the ELIMINATION of refined, processed sugars entirely. The authors harness the sugars of the most naturally occurring sugar out there: FRUIT. It's right there on the cover. With recipes jam packed with fruit, nectars and naturally-occurring maple syrup, this cookbook produces desserts that are sweet, tangy and--should I say it--good for you. Half of the time, the syrups and nectar are OPTIONAL or replaceable with stevia/xylitol, the only sweeteners you should be putting in your body. Mind blown.

    I've done the research--I'm saving you time. Get this one. Dad loved it.
