Diabetes Meals for Good Health Cookbook: Complete Meal Plans and 100 Recipes (Health and Wellness)
(as of Dec 03,2022 22:23:37 UTC – Details)
A diabetes cookbook for every day from a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator.
A new edition of Karen Graham’s cookbook is a companion to Diabetes Essentials and Complete Diabetes Guide. This new edition has been written with MD and Endocrinologist Mansur Shomali, and includes updated recipes based on new research and best practices. Recent CDC reports indicate that over 30 million Americans have diabetes and another 84 million have prediabetes. In this book, Karen Graham and Dr. Shomali explain that carefully planned, nutritious meals and sensible portion sizes are an essential part of diabetes and weight management.
This book gives step-by-step instructions for putting this advice into action. It includes life-size portions of meals and snacks. The “Eat This-Not That” section compares common foods and beverages to help you choose between them. The weight loss guide has daily meal plans from 1,200 to 2,200 calories. And all the meals list carbohydrates and so can be used by people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
This meal planning guide includes balanced options for every meal of the day along with pairing advice and nutritional analysis. While one might assume that a meal supporting diabetes management might not be very tasty, Karen Graham’s home-tested recipes show you that this is far from the truth. Some of the 100 delicious recipes include Poppy Seed Spinach Salad, Quesadilla, Hamburger Soup, Roti with Curried Filling, Thai Chicken, Shrimp Linguini, Crustless Pumpkin Pie and Banana Bread.
Karen Graham’s diabetes books are market-leading and have sold over a quarter million copies across all titles and editions. She has an easy-to-understand approach and has devoted her career to helping those with diabetes improve their lives. Her collaboration with Dr. Shomali on this new Health and Wellness Series brings his leading-edge expertise as a physician and endocrinologist, professor of medicine and researcher.
