The Joslin Diabetes Healthy Carbohydrate Cookbook

About The Book

In response to a major movement in diabetes treatment, recipes low in animal protein and saturated fat that give you the nutrition you need to stay healthy and energetic
During the last decade, major changes in the approach to dietary treatment of diabetes have occurred. Today it is widely recognized that people with diabetes can enjoy a high-carbohydrate meal plan low in animal proteins and saturated fat and get the nutrition they need to stay healthy and energetic. Now The Joslin Diabetes Healthy Carbohydrate Cookbook offers tasty and easy-to-prepare recipes that provide necessary protein in the form of beans, lentils, and tofu and take full advantage of the bounty of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices available year-round. Dishes such as Vietnamese Imperial Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce, Belgian Endive and Watercress Salad with Blue Cheese Toasts, Pumpkin Ravioli with Mushroom Ragout, and Star Fruit Upside-Down Cake prove that living with diabetes does not mean eating bland, tasteless foods.
