The idea that type-2 diabetes can be mitigated, and in some cases reversed, through improved lifestyle choices and diet is gaining credence in the medical and scientific communities. This book, written by two qualified diet and nutrition practitioners, is a reliable, practical guide, and the 100+ plant-based recipes are appealing too.

Current scientific studies show that most people with type 2 diabetes can reverse the disease by eating a plant-based diet and making other healthy lifestyle changes. The Kick Diabetes Cookbook provides a blueprint for what to eat to defeat diabetes and offers 100 quick-and-easy recipes that are delicious and satisfying. Diabetes authority Brenda Davis, RD, outlines an action plan for including more foods that help regulate blood glucose levels and avoiding foods that send those levels skyrocketing. She clarifies why not all carbohydrates promote diabetes, explains how plant-based protein reduces diabetes risk, and illustrates why a whole-foods plant-based is naturally low in fat and sodium. Coauthor Vesanto Melina, MS, RD, and recipe developer Barb Bloomfield provide nourishing fare, ranging from tempting comfort food to sinful-tasting treats. Information on composing nutritious meals and cooking beans and grains is included, along with a sample weeks menu. Each recipe is accompanied by a complete nutritional analysis.
