The Essential Diabetes Cookbook:
Good Healthy Eating from Around the World
A worrying fact is that the number of people suffering from diabetes continues to increase. Sometimes even more worrisome than the condition itself, diabetics fear that they will have to give up all of the foods that they love and survive on a bland diet. As a sufferer of a pre-diabetic condition himself, UK celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson knows first-hand how tricky it can be to adapt to a new diet and has set out to create an inspiring new book of original ideas and easy-to-make dishes from recipes across the globe that not only taste delicious, but also will help you successfully manage your condition.
‘The Essential Diabetes Cookbook: Good Healthy Eating from around the World’ is packed with more than 200 recipes, as well as useful food facts, practical advice and clear nutritional information - all vetted by a registered dietician. Antony has created mouth-watering dishes with influences from the finest cuisines from around the world - Morocco and other regions of Africa, Turkey, the Middle East, Latin America and South America, Southeast Asia and the Mediterranean. The Essential Diabetes Cookbook will bring flair and flavor to your cooking repertoire without having to give up the foods you love, or even eat less.
From filling breakfasts of Strawberry Oatmeal and Oat Bran Honey and light lunches of Lemongrass Chicken and Peanut Salad to show-stopping suppers of Roast Hake in Chowder-style Broth and one-pot dinners of slow-cooked Pork Chops with Lentils and Cider or Spicy Lamb Tagine, these recipes are sure to please any palate. Antony also includes chapters for vegetarian dishes, healthy snacks for any time of the day, and lovely desserts, such as Citrus and Honey Cheesecake with Plum Compote, that will satisfy any sweet tooth.
So whether you have diabetes or live with someone who does, this is the book for food lovers who know that healthy food should also mean delicious food.
