November is National Diabetes Month. Diabetes is a condition that seems to be becoming much more prevalent in our community, especially among those over 60. I’m sure many listeners have agonized over what to serve to dinner guests who are diabetic. Well the library can help.
Each branch carries a number of diabetic cookbooks, and I’ve chosen to highlight a new one entitled Canada’s Diabetes Meals for Good Health, by Karen Graham. It has been published in cooperation with the Canadian Diabetes Association. This book includes complete meal plans and over 100 recipes. There are full paged beautiful colour photographs of every meal, variations for large and small meals, substitutes, and an exact breakdown of nutritional information.
These meals look so delicious they could easily be served to a diabetic or non-diabetic at any dinner party.
