A healthy diet, along with regular eating habits, should be an important feature of daily life. It should include a variety of foods, from all food groups--plenty of vegetables and fruits, and breads and cereals: some dairy foods, lean meats and/or meat alternatives; and a small amount of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, but particularly for diabetics to assist with blood glucose control and to help control weight. In "Diabetes, Good Food Choices", culinary author and food-technology educator Ruby Brown makes managing diabetes easy and fun, by applying her unique flair for modifying traditinal favorite foods to suit specific dietry requirements. All recipes in this book satisfy the nutritonal guidelines suitable for diabetes and overall healthy eating. Unless otherwise stated, the recipes use whole-grain cereal products, low-fat diary products, and minimal sugar and fats. Traditional favorites have been reduced in fat, sugar, and salt where necessary, and boosted with fiber where possible. in the interest of diabetes management and heart health, the margarines and oils used are plant-based monounsaturated and polyunsaturated types, rather than the "heavier" animal fats like butter and cream. And, to further promote dietary management, a nutritional analysis is provided for each recipe, detailing calories, total fat, saturated fat, fiber, carbohydrates, sodium, and protein per serving and for the entire recipe. "Diabetes: Good Food Choices" not only includes more than 100 delcious recipes, but also provdes readers with key information and dietary strategies for managing diabetes and an extensive quick-reference glossary of diabetes-related terms and concepts.
