In this incredible resource, diabetics will learn to manage their blood-sugar levels with healthy recipes that are low in sugars and balanced in carbs, fiber, fats and proteins. Mary Ellen Phipps, a registered dietician nutritionist who has had Type 1 diabetes since childhood, has a personal understanding of how eating while diabetic can feel restrictive and daunting, which is why her recipes not only regulate blood sugar levels and taste delicious, but shows diabetics how to enjoy their favourite foods in the way that is best for their bodies.

Recipes cover every course from breakfast to dinner to dessert, so readers never have to scramble to find healthy, great tasting meals any time of the day. Tackle the morning with blood sugar balancing breakfasts like Blueberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats, nibble on safe snacks like No Bake Coconut Cashew Energy Bites, and enjoy filling dinners like 30-Minute Garlic Lamb Lollipops and Lemon Pepper Salmon. You'll even be able to indulge in desserts like Crispy Pistachio Chocolate Bark and Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies with Mary's expert techniques for creating low-sugar treats that still taste great! In addition to these tasty recipes, Mary also provides professional and personal tips for managing diabetes through food and lifestyle changes, so readers develop a new, all-encompassing approach to positively navigating their condition.
