The Kick Diabetes Cookbook: An Action Plan and Recipes for Defeating Diabetes
Paperback – July 15, 2018
Diabetes authority Brenda Davis, RD, outlines an action plan for including more foods that help regulate blood glucose levels and avoiding foods that send those levels skyrocketing. She clarifies why not all carbohydrates promote diabetes, explains how plant-based protein reduces diabetes risk, and illustrates why a whole-foods, plant-based diet is naturally low in fat and sodium. Coauthor Vesanto Melina, MS, RD, provides nourishing fare that ranges from tempting comfort food to sinful-tasting treats. Information on composing nutritious meals and cooking beans and grains is included, along with a sample weeks menu. Each recipe is accompanied by a complete nutritional analysis.
