About Jennifer Bell

Jennifer Bell's face.

I’m Jennifer Bell, the author at A Sweet Alternative. My passion for cooking dates back to my teenage years when I worked as a waitress and spent as much time as possible hanging out in the restaurant kitchen so I could watch the chefs cook and absorb everything I could learn.

I have two amazing kids who used to be pretty picky eaters, but are becoming more adventurous with food these days. My children inspire me to create simple, nutrient-dense recipes.

I’ve noticed that I feel better when I eliminate refined sugar from my diet, so the recipes I create call for alternative sweeteners such as dates, coconut sugar, and maple syrup. I also love using nutritious flours such as coconut flour, buckwheat flour, chickpea flour, and whole grain flour.

In addition to creating nutritious dessert recipes, I’ll also be providing plenty of recipes for main courses, soups, drinks, sides, appetizers, and snacks!
