The Best Recipes And Cookbooks For Managing Diabetes

The Best Recipes And Cookbooks For Managing Diabetes

My godmother has had Type 1 diabetes all her life. I was always fascinated by her insulin pumps, regular skin pricks to check her blood sugar levels, and all of the effort that went into managing her disease. As an adult, I admire how she has accepted her condition and worked all her life to stay healthy. Diabetes is a challenging disease that is affecting a growing number of people around the world. Although some people are born with diabetes (Type 1), you can also develop it later in life (Type 2) or during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). In all cases, diet plays a very important role in managing the condition so that it doesn’t escalate or cause further complications. In this article, I’ll share a number of recipes that are optimal for those managing diabetes, and take a look at some of the most helpful cookbooks out there to help maintain a healthy lifestyle through your home cooking. Feel free to skip right ahead to see current prices and reviews on Amazon of the cookbooks, listed below. Diabetes Overview and Recipes The simple version of diabetes is that the body struggles to maintain normal blood glucose levels (which a healthy body does insulin production), putting sufferers at risk for a number of complications. Although managing diabetes requires a variety of interventions, a healthy diet plays a very important role. Here’s a quick overview of what happens to the diabetic body: Eating for diabetes means avoiding simple and starchy carbohydrates, especially sugar. The good news is that the basic principles of a healthy diet for diabetes are the same as what nutritionists and doctors recommend for everyone: a diet rich in vegetables and fruits, fiber, whole grains, healthy animal proteins; and low in saturated fat, empty calories, added sugar, and proces Continue reading >>

Diabetes Cookbook -- Best In The World?

Diabetes Cookbook -- Best In The World?

The Best Ketogenic Diet Cookbooks Of 2017 | All Day I Dream About Food

The Best Ketogenic Diet Cookbooks Of 2017 | All Day I Dream About Food

2017 was a great year for the ketogenic diet. Heres a list of the Top 10 Ketogenic Diet Books of the year! And a greatgiveaway of some of those books for one lucky winner. Please note that this post contains affiliate links. 2017 was a fantastic year for the ketogenic diet. It has exploded in popularity, with more and more people coming to recognize the value of this healthy way of eating. For many, its no longer a fad or a quick way to lose a little weight but a true way of life, one that helps them manage a myriad of health issues. I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that its the best way to manage my diabetes. And I am truly glad to be on the vanguard of such a revolutionary sea change in our concept of health. My only concern is that, as with other health trends, the message gets diluted as more and more people try to capitalize on its popularity. Ive watched this happen with the gluten-free trend and the paleo trend, and I fear its already happening with keto. Companies are promoting products as keto when they really arent, simply because its a hot keyword. Or they are creating products that technically are keto, but are made with pretty junky ingredients. I suppose its inevitable, and it is up to the true keto warriors to separate the chaff from the proverbial grain. Because I am well-known in the keto and low carb diet worlds, I receive a lot of books to review. And 2017 saw the debut of many, MANY a keto book, including my own. Some are cookbooks, some are how-to books, some are educational. Some are really good and some arenot as good. So as the year draws to a close, I thought I give a nod and a review to some of the best of those books. That is best in my own personal, possibly not-perfectly-objective, opinion. I like big beautiful books with lots of great Continue reading >>

12 R.d.-approved Cookbooks That'll Change Your Healthy Cooking Game

12 R.d.-approved Cookbooks That'll Change Your Healthy Cooking Game

12 R.D.-Approved Cookbooks That'll Change Your Healthy Cooking Game The books healthy eating experts actually cook from As someone who writes about food for a living, I spend most of my waking hours talking about, thinking about, and looking at recipes . Its usually a pretty sweet gig (unless Im hungry, in which case it is the worst). But every now and then, it brings on a bad case of recipe fatigue: When Ive looked at so many damn recipes that literally nothing on the Internet inspires me to want to cook. When I get into one of these funks, I find that flipping through a good old-fashioned cookbook almost always snaps me out of it. For one, theres just something about holding an IRL book thats awesome. The touch, the smell, the pictures! If you ask me, food just looks better when its not on a screen. But thats not all: When I cook from a cookbook, I find that I'm more likely to cook outside of my comfort zone, because I trust that the results will be delicious. There are tons of cookbooks out there, and some are definitely better than others. In order to narrow things down, we asked registered dietitians which cookbooks they love and actually cook from. Of all the cookbooks out there, these R.D.s told SELF that these are their all-time favorites. Some are specific to certain diets or medical conditions (there are diabetes cookbooks and vegan cookbooks on the list), while others target a more general audience. What they all have in common is that they're full of delicious, cookable recipes that just happen to be healthy. These 12 healthy cookbooks are great for gifting, and also totally worth buying for yourself. Continue reading >>

Sugar-free Cookbooks That Make Ditching Sweets Easy - Cnn

Man prepares chicken wings with cranberry sauce in a home kitchen Whether you're diabetic or are looking to detox, these sugar-free cookbooks will help make your meals healthy and flavorful. Sometimes our sweet tooth can get the best of us. We just can't help it. But if you're consuming too much refined sugar, your sugar fix could also get the best of your health. Consumption of excess sugar has been linked to cardiovascular disease , obesity and an overall unhealthy diet. Experts warn that a culprit is added sugars used in processed foods think ice creams, soda and candy not natural sugars like the ones found in fruits. The seemingly straight forward option is to cut sugar from your diet. But that's easier said than done. Refined white sugar lurks in many items, like pre-packaged salad dressings and breakfast cereals. And for those who have diabetes, refined starches like white bread and white rice act similarly to sugar once the body begins to digest them, and can interfere with glucose levels . If you fall into that bucket, you'll likely want to white flour from your diet as well. If you want to eliminate refined sugars from your daily routine, know you have an arsenal of healthy recipes and food substitution tricks at your disposal. Cookbooks, for example, are an easy way to master both. To help start you on your new lifestyle, we've rounded up five cookbooks that span the sugar-free spectrum. From diabetic culinary bibles to intensive detox programs, these books will help you stay healthy while still letting you indulge in variations of your favorite sweets, cakes and all.

Cookbooks For People With Diabetes

Cookbooks For People With Diabetes

Amy Olson, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, may soon have to replace her favorite cookbook. She still loves the recipes, and so does her family. But the book -- Quick and Healthy Recipes and Ideas: For People Who Say They Don't Have Time to Cook Healthy Meals by Brenda Ponichtera (Scaledown, 1991) -- is so dog-eared and stained with splotches of sauce that she could use a new copy. For Olson, a good cookbook is more than just a convenience. Like her clients at the hospital, she has diabetes, and her health depends on the choices she makes in the kitchen. The recipes in her favorite cookbook aren't specifically geared for people with diabetes, but they do tend to be light in fat, calories, and carbohydrates. As an added bonus, every recipe comes with detailed nutritional information, such as calories, total fat, and carbohydrate count, making it much easier for her to fit the meals into her daily plan. Olson encourages all of her diabetes patients to find healthy recipes that they'll enjoy cooking at home. A cookbook doesn't have to have the word "diabetes" on the cover to be helpful, but each recipe should include a breakdown of fat, calories, and carbs. "A lot of general cookbooks have that information, but diabetes patients may have to weed out some of the recipes," she says. When shopping for a cookbook, people with diabetes should think about what kinds of foods they really like to eat, Olson says. Chilled cucumber soup may be healthy, but it isn't always realistic for people who crave heartier fare. If you're a carb lover, for instance, it's possible to find a cookbook that satisfies your taste buds yet stays within your dietary budget. The Joslin Diabetes Healthy Carbohydrate Continue reading >>
