The Italian Diabetes Cookbook

My friend, fellow Les Dames and CHoW member, Amy Riolo has published a new book–The Italian Diabetes Cookbook–that will please everyone at your table.

As she points out, Italian food is not all rich and cheesy pastas and creamy desserts. No one appreciates vegetables like Italians. Riolo’s approach to these recipes is appreciating what people with diabetes can eat, rather than what they can’t, an approach that allows traditional recipes that feature lean meats, poultry, seafood, beans and legumes, and even wholesome baked goods.

Rioli draws her recipes from authentic sources–traditional dishes from the Piedmont, Venice, Calabria, and other regions. She also calls on family recipes and her own clever adaptations–like a honey-sweetened yogurt gelato. And just to ensure your pantry is always stocked, she includes recipes for stocks, beans, roasted peppers, and home-made croutons.

Now there’s no reason not to eat healthy and Italian!
