Motivated by several members of her family diagnosed with diabetes, Medearis has created and re-created recipes that are healthy and sensitive to insulin imbalance. She shows you how to set up and stock a healthy kitchen including using sugar alternatives. Her cooking has always included the use of lots of fruits and vegetables and this book is no different. Also, the recipes are easy on the chef and the wallet. Nutritional information is included with every entry and there are beautiful color pictures throughout.
My favorites are the Seafood Burgers and the Veggie Lasagne. Part of the focus of the book is to make cooking at home easier and more fun, since it's harder to have control when dining out. While I didn't like that a lot of the recipes relied heavily on using the microwave, I still recommend it.
This is a cookbook that features dishes that everyone can enjoy even if you aren't diabetic. Angela Shelf Medearis, also known as THE KITCHEN DIVA! is a guest chef and recipe creator for the DR. OZ show. Her latest project is a cookbook that is geared to help cooks of all skill levels create fun, easy, budget-friendly meals that are diabetic friendly. Medearis has build a national reputation for her cooking, a style that blends traditional comfort foods and ethnic dishes but with a healthy twist. Since 20 million Americans are diabetic, this cookbook is certain have wide appeal. The recipes are accessible and, like the diva herself, sassy.
I spent a week testing this cookbook and eventually prepared six recipes. Since I am type 2, I had a special interest in this collection. I am pleased to report that every recipe I made was a success and, perhaps most important of all, delicious.
Micro-Wave Meat-Stuffed Peppers and Sweet and Sour Watermelon and Cucumber Salad were a snap to prepare. Fast Turkey Patties with Maple-Rosemary Sauce with Black-Eyed Peas Cakes were a perfect combination for a summer supper. My last two recipes were desserts. I chose a Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, a personal favorite, and Fudge Pudding Cake which is as delicious as the name sounds.
This is a cookbook that is highly recommended. Get a copy and let the fun meals begin!
"Yes in deed they are full of ripe sugar, like 91% of their calories are nothing but sugar!! And as if that weren't enough, 1/3 of their sugar is glucose that goes directly to the blood, 1/3 of it is fructose that goes to the liver and becomes lipids like triglycerides and LDL-b the small particles that harden the arteries. Can you see why there is a 60% positive correlation between diabetes and heart disease? The last 1/3 is starch that is turned into even MORE glucose to raise the blood glucose even higher. Perhaps someone from Lifescript can explain to me how that can possibly be "diabetic friendly" under ANY circumstance!! I even left off the sugar in the yogurt because lactose is slower to raise the BG and it simply can't compete with the banana and its 7% fiber content that does absolutely NOTHING to keep any sugar from being turned into blood glucose from "ripe bananas with black spots" as opposed to the probiotic form of fiber found in green, UNRIPE and UNSWEET bananas. Too bad the Kitchen Diva apparently doesn't know ANYTHING about how much sugar there is in an overly ripe banana either. The nutritional content info I quote is from USDA Nutrition Database 28. And I'm even leaving out the starch-filled low fat granola."
I can see why she's on the Dr. Oz show. He's owned by Oprah and Harpo productions and never met a sugar he didn't like.
