On her 44th birthday, Jayne got deathly sick and landed herself in the emergency room with stunning vital signs. After numerous tests, the ER physician diagnosed her as a severe diabetic who was minutes away from having a stroke. This was an eye-shocking surprise Jayne, a lawyer by trade and health policy wonk. The next hours were crucial---no one told her that she’d lose her sight! Jayne lost her vision/eyesight for 15 days. She went on prescribed medications, but never insulin. Her attitude was lifesaving. Jayne went to work and wore out her tennis shoes. She changed her diet and eliminated all sugar, fruit, flour and snacking. Today, Jayne has lost 60 lbs., is medicine free and her eyesight is now 20/20. All accomplished by pure lifestyle change.This is her first cookbook of No Sugar recipes including desserts, entrees, soups and treats. Jayne is nationally known as America’s No Sugar Baker and has tremendous following on social media.
Jayne J. Jones, born and raised in Minnesota, has founded a government grant firm, a nonprofit chaperone travel service for individuals with intellectual disabilities, and authored six national and world award-winning books. A self-taught decadent cook, baker and party thrower, Jayne’s main love is entertaining and knocking everyone’s aprons off with her creativity, devotion to dollar saving tips and savory tastes. A typical weekend would find Jayne roaming enticing garage sales, trying a new recipe on her taste testing team, and rooting for her friends in the National Hockey League.
Jayne got deathly ill and sick in the fall of 2019. Her love of the kitchen, party throwing and zest for life got crumbled up in one bite. But, not out of sight. After six months of blood, sweat and tears, Jayne rolled up her sleeves, put back on an apron and went to work as the No Sugar Baker. Jayne is married to Chris Beehler, (AKA The Hubs), and has a college-aged daughter Emily (AKA Em).
