The Joslin Diabetes Healthy Carbohydrate Cookbook
People with diabetes can enjoy a meal plan with a high proportion of carbohydrate that is low in animal protein and fat and still keep their diabetes well controlled. This cookbook from Joslin is good news for the estimated 16 million Americans with diabetes – as well as those without diabetes who want to incorporate low fat, high-fiber, vegetarian-based dishes into their meal plan.
Francis Towner Giedt and Bonnie Sanders Polin, working with the Nutrition Services Staff at Joslin Diabetes Center, offer recipes that emphasize fresh ingredients and ethnic flavors. The authors have created tasty, easy-to-prepare low fat, high-fiber recipes, ranging from grilled portobello mushroom recipes to bean and pasta soup to bruschetta with several different toppings. They’ve also constructed three weeks of menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner at 1500 calories per day to encourage people living with diabetes to enjoy low fat, high carbohydrate meals that provide nutrients needed to stay healthy. Each recipe includes nutritional values.
