This is a food lover's guide to eating well with diabetes. The recipes are delicious and suitable for the entire family and for entertaining friends. There is no sacrifice of taste or quality.
This book is a second, fully revised edition of Robin Ellis's hugely successful Delicious Dishes for Diabetics. Based on Mediterranean cuisine - one of the healthiest in the worldbook - British actor, Robin Ellis shares his lifetime collection of healthy and simple recipes especially selected and adapted for people wishing to control or prevent Types 2 diabetes. Diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes himself, Robin explains the strategic changes he made - in what he eats and how he prepares his food - that allowed him to bring his glucose levels down sufficiently to avoid taking medication for six years.
This fully illustrated book contains photographs, not only of the recipes but of beautiful, rural southwestern France, where Robin lives and leads sell-out cooking workshops focused on simple, delicious and healthy Mediterranean cuisine, making the most of all the fresh local ingredients available.
While not suffering from diabetes myself, I can highly recommend Robin's delicious recipes, some of which I have had the pleasure of sampling at his table in France. The recipes have all the richness of classical Mediterranean cooking. Enjoy yourselves ... with this mouth-watering cornucopia.
