Great healthy eating recipes, that don't feel like you are dieting!
on 27 July 2012
As a recently diagnosed type 2 diabetic I have found it very hard to work out what to eat. I bought the Anthony Worrel Thompson cookery books - Low GI Diet and the Diabetes Cookery book and found them BOTH so confusing, in fact I gave them to the charity shop in the end. But this book if FANTASTIC! It has easy to see scores for GI, Calories, Saturated fat and Salt. So at one glance I can see what is very healthy, what is medium and what is a treat. The recipes are easy to follow, some with great photographs. I've only had the book a few days, but have managed to keep to the recipes and have lost some weight and my sugar levels are coming down.
Even if you are not a diabetic, this is a great book. I recommend the sesame oatcakes (cooking as I type and smell fantastic). The mushroom lasagne is great too.
