Description

Blood Sugar: The Family is packed full of everyday inspiring recipes for anyone facing the challenges of diabetes and healthy living. All the family favourites are here, with a twist on health. Eight years after he was diagnosed as a diabetic, Michael suffered a stroke. A committed family man, and still an ambitious chef, a world leading cook, TV personality and food commentator, Michael has embarked on a campaign to help diabetics eat fabulous food. What about breakfast with a high protein iced espresso coffee ripple with tofu? Or a strawberry mojito, basil, lime and ginger as a pick me up. Kids love the chickpea and corn fritters with bacon and avocado as a great start to the day. Snacks include chicken nuggets with crusted buckwheat to make a low GI snack. Salads abound with flavour combinations that have every taste bud jumping. Try roasted cauliflower and haloumi salad with sumac, rare tuna and kale salad with soy, beans and red quinoa or the classic lemon chicken and power food salad. Diabetics don't have to stop eating exciting food and Michael ensures that the desserts are not left out.
Of course he has a not-so-naughty chocolate cake that is low fat, low GI, high protein and low sugar - enough said! A low fat low sugar cinnamon apple upside-down pudding is a winter warmer. Finishing with great sauces, pickles and preserves, Blood Sugar: The Family has everything you need to make your kitchen sing with health. The book includes a major section on The Family Kitchen and The Family Pantry, with tips and ideas for substitutes to ensure you make a healthy choice of food each time.
