Dr. Neal Barnard, of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), has just announced the release of a new vegan cookbook next month, designed to provide readers with knowledge and recipes to help reverse and prevent diabetes.
Barnard said in a tweet “I’m so excited to announce that I’m teaming up with @dreenaburton on a brand new cookbook with 150 delicious, plant-based recipes that can help you beat type 2 diabetes!”
This book, called “Dr. Neal Barnard’s Cookbook for Reversing Diabetes” will be available for purchase from the 27th of February. You can find it here.
Type 2 diabetes (also called hyperglycemia) is a life-long condition that affects mostly overweight people and those over 40 years old, once diagnosed, patients need to inject themselves multiple times per day and/or take prescription medicine. This condition is caused when bodies are unable to process insulin properly and their glucose levels (blood sugar) spike to higher than normal, or erratically.
Dr. Neal’s book takes a different, more modern approach to treating diabetes – his secret is in the diet. “Finally an approach to managing diabetes that is not based on pills or injections, but on food – the most delicious “prescription” you could imagine”.
Although changing up a diet can seem daunting or un-appetizing, this new book contains the healthy vegan recipes for everyone’s favorite recipes: muffins, pudding, burgers, onion rings – just to name a few.
In addition to recipes, this book contains easy to understand explanations of the link between diabetes and nutrition.
