Carefully planned, nutritious meals and sensible portion sizes are an essential part of diabetes management. The recipes in the first edition made meal planning easy and straightforward so it's no wonder that the first edition has nearly 100,000 copies in print. All the great features of the first edition are still here: delicious recipes and balanced meal options for all the meals of the day, suggestions for healthy snack and life-size photographs for every meal provide an easy way to identify appropriate portion sizes. There are 70 complete meals, 100 recipes and over 100 snacks to choose from and each section is color coded for ease of use.
The new edition will feature many new photographs plus an all-new 32 page section which will provide -- through photographs and nutritional analysis -- an excellent, easy-to-follow guide for making the right food or beverage choice. These meal plans are so sumptuous, they can be enjoyed not only by those managing diabetes but by anyone who loves great food:
Dinner #22: Sun Burger, Kale and Orange Salad, Dream Delight
Dinner #30: Roti with Curried Filling, Cucumbers in Yogurt, Coconut Meringues
Dinner #33: Thai Chicken, Poppy Seed Spinach Salad, Summer Fruit Cream
Dinner #38: Pork Chop Casserole, Grilled Tomato, Mandarins and Cottage Cheese
