17 Mar The Create-Your-Plate Diabetes Cookbook is Released Today!
I am thrilled to announce the release of my next cookbook The Create-Your-Plate Diabetes Cookbook: A Plate Method Approach to Simple, Complete Meals published by the American Diabetes Association. The “Diabetes Plate Method” is an effortless way to plan nutritionally-rich and healthy meals without any counting, measuring, tracking, or calculations. In The Create-Your-Plate Diabetes Cookbook I demonstrate how to build perfectly-portioned meals with a healthy balance of vegetables, protein, and just the right amount of carbohydrates with nothing more than a dinner plate.
Every recipe was designed to meet the nutrition guidelines of the American Diabetes Association, so people with diabetes can create their plate with confidence knowing they’re preparing fun, flavorful, and nutritious meals. This step-by-step guide is perfect for anybody looking to live a healthier lifestyle without getting bogged down in complicated diets. With 125 mix-and-match recipes to choose from, the book is full of ideas for easy, delicious meals the whole family will enjoy, including:
