Break the sugar habit with this inspiring, easy-to-follow cookbook!
Overcome your sugar cravings, lose weight, and get your health back on track! With more than 100 mouthwatering recipes, menus, and gorgeous color photographs, SugarDetox.Me is on a mission to help readers shake their addiction to the sweet stuff. It not only arms you with scientific knowledge about the harmful effects of sugar, it offers an achievable strategy for detoxing safely and effectively - including 10 Meal Maps. These maps explain how to create multiple meals, maximize each ingredient, minimize waste, and save money. There's no economizing when it comes to flavor, though - each recipe delivers healthy, delicious food. Enjoy a breakfast of an egg, sunny side up, over cauliflower and bacon with potato hash; a light lunch of mixed salad greens with chili and sage-roasted acorn squash; and a memorable dinner of savory seared scallops over marinated mushrooms, corn mash, and red sorrel. And, to satisfy your sweet tooth without sugar, there's even a chilled bowl of banana-almond butter "ice cream."

About the Author

Summer Rayne Oakes

Summer Rayne Oakes is an entrepreneur, author and model whose work centers on health, wellness and sustainability. Graduating Cornell University cum laude with degrees in Environmental Science and Entomology, Oakes began to bridge her interest in ecological systems to industries that affect our everyday life - from what we wear to what we eat.

In 2009, while modeling full-time, Oakes co-founded the award-winning start-up Source4Style (now Le Souk) to connect designers to more sustainable textile suppliers around the globe - from cotton weavers in India to silk spinners in Cambodia. From there she applied her knowledge of sustainable systems to the world of food, helping to launch food startups seeking to build and strengthen more sustainable, regional food systems.

After working to nix her own sweet tooth, Oakes founded SugarDetox.me in 2014, a website which offers easy-to-follow, affordable 10-day and 30-day guided cleanses, centered around helping people transition away from sugary, processed foods and to begin embracing whole foods free of added sugars.

Oakes' vision is to help find the extraordinary in the everyday person by inspiring and empowering those to live an active, healthy, fulfilling and sustainable life. Her work has been featured in a range of media outlets worldwide including: CNN, The New York Times, The Guardian, Vogue, Vanity Fair, INC, and others. You may see her in Brooklyn cooking sugar-free meals, hanging out at her local community garden, or tending to her own copious indoor jungle.
