Book Feature: The Kick Diabetes Cookbook – An Action Plan and Recipes for Defeating DiabetesVitality Magazine August 26, 2019
In Canada, one in every four adults has diabetes, and it is estimated to rise to one in three by 2020. Current scientific studies show that in most cases, people with Type 2 diabetes can reverse the disease by eating a plant-based diet and making other healthy lifestyle changes. This cookbook provides a blueprint for what to eat to defeat diabetes.
In THE KICK DIABETES COOKBOOK: An Action Plan and Recipes for Defeating Diabetes, authors Brenda Davis, RD, and Vesanto Melina, MS, RD, explain how the nutrients found in unprocessed plant-based foods positively affect insulin production and can turn diabetes around. Certain foods help ward off hunger and lower blood glucose levels, while other foods can send them skyrocketing. Easy-to-read charts and tables indicate which foods to eat regularly and which ones to avoid. Included are lifestyle recommendations that can help promote optimal wellness.
The essence of the plan centers around 100+ easy-to-prepare recipes that incorporate power-packed foods that fight diabetes at every meal—breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The recipes are so delicious that they’ll also be enjoyed by family and friends. A variety of sample menus removes the guesswork out of meal planning.
Registered dietitian Brenda Davis has been the lead nutritionist and health educator for the Diabetes Wellness Project in the Marshall Islands for several years. Vesanto Melina co-authored the joint position paper on vegetarian diets for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Dietitians of Canada. Together, this dynamic duo has penned a life-changing cookbook for anyone who has type 2 diabetes or cares for someone who does.
