Robin Ellis's Mediterranean Vegetarian Cooking : Delicious Seasonal Dishes for Living Well with Diabetes
Mediterranean cuisine is among the healthiest in the world and a vegetarian diet has been proven to be particularly health-giving for people who have diabetes. In this book British actor Robin Ellis shares his lifetime collection of healthy and simple vegetarian recipes especially selected and adapted for people wishing to control or prevent Types 2 diabetes.
Diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes himself, Robin explains the strategic changes he made - in what he eats and how he prepares his food - that allowed him to bring his glucose levels down sufficiently to avoid taking medication for six years.
Robin's recipes show how you can cook and eat delicious vegetarian food without recourse to carb-heavy pastries or potatoes, nor to substitutes such as Quorn or soya, which are not traditional staples of the Mediterranean diet. This is a book about real food and a way of living with diabetes that need not mean you can no longer look forward to breakfast, lunch and dinner - Robin does every day!
This fully illustrated book contains photographs, not only of the recipes but of beautiful, rural southwestern France, where Robin lives and leads sell-out cooking workshops focused on simple, delicious and healthy Mediterranean cuisine, making the most of all the fresh local ingredients available.

The Basques are great cooks and giving a dinner in the Basque Country is scary. One also eats very late, so no one wants anything too heavy. I always use one of Robin's recipes and end up with nothing but compliments and a demand for the recipe. "An Englishwoman who can cook tuna!" someone said to me in complete astonishment. Of course, the recipe was Robin's Robin and I are old friends - or should I say enemies - from Poldark days. As Captain McNeill, I was constantly trying - and failing - to catch up with him and throw him into prison. Today I'm trying to catch up with his expertise in the kitchen! I'm now somewhat embarrassed when I have to say yet again, 'This is delicious! Can I have the recipe?' His cooking is superb. Wonderful flavours, textures and presentation. His cook book is a must for those who love their food, but also like to stay healthy. Robin's cooking and Robin's recipes: simple, fresh and simply glorious. To have Sunday lunch at Robin's and to go home with his recipes is the perfect southwest France Sunday. Oh, let there be many more Sundays in the kitchen with Robin. Robin Ellis is a superb chef! His cookbook is filled with delicious and healthy recipes even for people like me who are not diabetics
