Palmer, MSFS, RDN (California Vegan), aims to help those who currently have type 1 or 2 diabetes, are at risk for developing diabetes, or are struggling with pre-diabetes or gestational diabetes. The book begins with over 60 pages of information about diabetes, along with research and information about going vegan. This information is basic yet wide-ranging and informative for diabetics, their families, friends, or hosts looking to understand and support them with knowledge and food. Also included are helpful charts, information on what supplements might be needed on a vegan diet, the many names and forms of sugar, discussion of the many health benefits of this diet, and a list of pantry staples. Recipes include breakfast, appetizers, soups and stews, salads, bowls, sandwiches and tacos, main dishes, sides, dressings and sauces, and desserts. Most dishes will require a shopping trip unless one is already widely equipped. However, some recipes are made with pantry staples and thus ideal for the stymied host. Recipes also include tips for gluten-free alterations.
VERDICT A must-buy for library cookbook collections.
