Focus on Diabetes: To Reduce or Prevent Your Risk of Diabetes Type 2, Foods High in Fiber and Rich in Omega-3 Provide a Foundation for Year-Round Health


Finding healthy and delicious recipes that feature antioxidant-rich vegetables, dietary fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids--important ingredients in the daily diet, especially for individuals with type 2 diabetes--remains a challenge for today's busy chefs. The recent cookbook Healthy Calendar Diabetic Cooking from the American Diabetes Association offers a full year of delicious menus and user-friendly recipes the entire family will enjoy.

This unique cookbook provides month-by-month, even day-by-day meal plans and recipes. The menus also feature weekly grocery lists to help busy homemakers save time (and money). Menus include healthy portions of omega-3-rich foods, such as fresh salmon, that help reduce the risk of heart disease and lower blood cholesterol and blood pressure.

According to the National Diabetes Education program, diabetes prevention is proven, possible, and powerful. Studies demonstrate that people at high risk for type 2 diabetes can prevent or delay the onset of the disease significantly by losing a modest amount of weight through dietary modification and regular exercise.

The Post offers samples from the cookbook's quick, tasty, and healthy food recipes that help take the guesswork out of year-round food plans.
