There is a exciting new cookbook by bestselling author Mark Hyman, M.D; it is The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook: More than 175 Ultra-Tasty Recipes for Total Health and Weight Loss. There are cookbooks that motivate and inspire, and this is one of them.
As the title suggests, this cookbook is a follow-up to his landmark, No. 1 New York Times bestselling book,The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now!. In it, Dr. Hyman outlined the problem and revealed how it can be solved; the empowering book shows exactly how individuals can take charge of their health and wellness and indeed reverse diabetes with a 6-week diet plan.
Longtime readers of Skinny Bliss know I have written about Dr. Hyman and his work many times. I greatly appreciate his passion and candor in addressing what is wrong with the standard America diet (SAD) and how it is destroying our health while creating an unfathomable public health crisis. He speaks of diabesity — noting that one out of two Americans suffers from this. Yes, that’s 50 percent of the population! The word represents the intertwining epidemics of obesity and diabetes as well as the precursors, insulin resistance ad pre-diabetes.
I was happy to discover the follow-up book, The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook, — already No. 1 on Amazon and clearly on its way to bestseller status — he provides 175 recipes that are as easy to follow as they are appetizing.
More than “just” a cookbook, the book gives a thorough education on how what we eat impacts our health, and how we can lose weight safely as well as reverse diabesity and even type 2 diabetes. There are shopping lists and detailed discussion on exactly what foods are healthy, and what foods you should purchase to stock your kitchen after you have detoxed it and rid it of the bad foods that can spell the downfall of your health and longevity.
Recipes in The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook are in two categories; basic plan is for mild diabesity and the advanced plan is for advanced diabesity and type 2 diabetes. Both plans encompassing a wide variety of cuisines — Asian, Italian, Mexican, etc. — there is quite literally something for everyone for breakfast, lunch, dinner as well as desserts and snack time. Notably many of the recipes are vegetarian or vegan. Just a few of the recipes that can create excitement even as they foster a restoration and maintenance of good health include Latin Black Bean Burgers, Blissful Butternut Bisque, Shirataki Noodles with Kale and Chickpeas, Sesame-Crusted Sole with Baby Bok Choy and Wild Rice, Lemony Greek Pan-Roasted Chickpeas, Mexican Lasagna, and as well as some appealing desserts including Dark Chocolate Almond-Butter Bark and Guilt-Free Chocolate Mousse.
But the tools and resources do not end with the book. With your purchase of The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook you are entitled to several bonuses, including a live online webinar on March 27, 2013. You can get more details here.
You can get a quick overview of the book in the trailer video posted below, and find why it is such an important contribution to the advancement of our understanding of what steps to take to eat real, whole, mostly plant-based diet for health and wellness in place of the fat, sugar and salt heavy processed foods that are addictive, to the benefit the food industry and the detriment of public health.
