Diabetes is a complex disorder that can be caused by several factors, often in combination, whether genetics, physical lifestyle or nutrition. The World Health Organization estimates that the number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014 worldwide. In 1980, 4.7% of adults had diabetes, but by 2014 that figure had jumped to 8.5% and it continues to rise. It’s a risk many of us potentially face today.
Along with regular exercise, a healthy balanced diet can play a major part in avoiding the onset of type 2 diabetes and in maintaining healthy blood glucose levels for those already diagnosed with diabetes, and that’s where this book comes in. The latest in our gorgeous series of cookbooks, Food for Diabetes will take you through everything you need to know, including what diabetes is, what causes it, what steps you can take to avoid or live with the condition and how to achieve a healthy diet for nutrition, wellbeing and taste, followed by mouthwatering recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts. It’s not about cutting out treats completely or buying so-called ‘diabetic’ foods, so why not try a delicious Smoothie Breakfast Bowl, virtuous Hearty Beef Stew or some deceptively decadent Rich Brownies, all accompanied by inspirational photography.
