Thumbs Up from Dietitian!
As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I am quite particular about the cookbooks I recommend to my clients and within my work with consumer media. When it comes to diabetes and cooking, Jackie Newgent (who is both a chef and dietitian!) is the number one expert in my eyes. Not only does she make sure recipes easily fit into diets for people with diabetes, she assures that recipes are healthy for all, including those with pre-diabetes, heart health concerns, or simply looking to maintain a healthy weight. The best part for me is that her recipes are absolutely delicious! Jackie’s The All-Natural Diabetes Cookbook, 2nd Edition, is an ideal example of this. Plus, I love that in addition to the recipes, she includes truly valuable tips for achieving high flavor naturally, a diabetes-friendly substitution list, and simple seasonal menus. Eating enjoyable food is a key way for people to stick to a healthful eating plan long-term. And that’s why this cookbook gets my enthusiastic thumbs up!
