In addition to a reliable glucometer, some tried-and-true diabetic cookbooks are an important component in the home of anyone who suffers from diabetes. They’ll help you stay on track with healthy eating, just like the doctor ordered, and many come with plenty of hearty, nutritious recipes you’re sure to look forward to trying.
Joining our selection is The End of Diabetes, which makes the claim that one’s diet can prevent or reverse the disease. It’s written by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, The New York Times bestselling author who’s also penned “Eat to Live” and “Super Immunity.” The recipes call for foods with a high nutrient-per-calorie ratio. Many reviewers sing this program’s praises, citing lower blood sugar, weight loss, and increased energy. Some also refer to its rather heavy technical jargon, but if you can get through that, you might benefit from Fuhrman’s meals and advice, and come out of it with a better understanding of the disease.
Making its departure from our list is Quick and Delicious Recipes, which features four-ingredient meals for diabetics. While the concept is a great one, especially for those with busy lifestyles, it requires a significant number of processed foods and packaged goods to keep the ingredients list so low.
No matter which cookbook or cookbooks grab your attention, before embarking on any lifestyle changes, be sure to talk to your doctor to make sure they’re right for you.
