By Jackie Newgent, RDN, CDN
A delectable plant-based cookbook and eating guide for preventing and managing diabetes and pre-diabetes from award-winning cookbook author and registered dietitian Jackie Newgent.
Diabetes is an epidemic in the United States. More than 11 percent of the population is living with diabetes, and 38 percent of U.S. adults have prediabetes. Diabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, and lower-limb amputation. Recent research has also shown a connection between diabetes and dementia, hearing loss, and some forms of cancer. Experts point to diet as a key component in preventing and treating diabetes and prediabetes—particularly one featuring fruits and vegetables. That’s where The Plant-Based Diabetes Cookbook comes in, helping people with diabetes—or at risk for developing it—enjoy more plants. The key word is “enjoy.”
Here, Jackie Newgent, RDN, CDN, an award-winning cookbook author and classically-trained chef, offers 100 percent plant-based recipes that are full of flavor with fresh, modern appeal. At the same time, the dishes appeal to all eaters, not just vegetarians. The book is packed with more than 125 recipes, plenty of hearty main dishes, tasty menus, and hundreds of helpful tips. Following today’s current nutrition therapy guidelines, readers can follow a flexible plan without being overly focused on calories, carb-counting, or other strict macronutrient or micronutrient parameters. People with diabetes and prediabetes—and their families and friends—will benefit from the deliciousness The Plant-Based Diabetes Cookbook brings to the table, and the good health it brings to their lives!
