As a child, Amy Green went from super-skinny to plump. As a heavy teen, she was bullied and miserable. She tried every diet under the sun but could never shake those cravings for sugar and carbs. A chance conversation with a friend helped her discover that she was fighting a losing battle. As long as she continued to eat gluten and refined sugar, she was going to continue having cravings and would never be able to lose weight. It took some experimentation, but Amy was able to find a way of eating that worked for her whole self; body, mind and soul. Since then, Amy has maintained a weight loss of over sixty pounds. She is dedicated to creating nourishing meals and original, healthy recipes.
Amy’s blog, Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free, is chock full of articles, recipes, stories and beautiful pictures of food. As her tagline says, “Fabulous food made healthier”, she finds ways to make our favorites better for us, such as Chocolate Cupcakes with Agave nectar instead of white sugar and chewy chocolate brownies that get their sweetness from dates and are BONUS! fat free.
