My Review: Indian Cuisine Diabetes Cookbook
Did you know that Indian cuisine is one of the most popular regional/ethnic foods in the United States, where diabetes affects more than 30 million people?
Are you looking to cook easy, well-balanced, flavorful meals with delicious Indian Spices that incorporate Ayurvedic principles and meet the American Diabetes Association’s nutrition guidelines?
Here’s a cookbook you’ll want to check out…
The Indian Cuisine Diabetes Cookbook: Savory Spices and Bold Flavors of South Asia brings the taste, aroma, and health benefits of basic and exotic Indian spices into the kitchen for those with diabetes or prediabetes, or those simply looking to eat healthier and feel better.
Its author, May Abraham Fridel, Passion for Spices founder, comes from a culture where fresh foods are prepared in seasonally appropriate, wholesome and gourmet style.
Growing up in Kerala, India—recognized as the spice center of the world—May discovered a wide variety of curries and other high-quality spices that are rich with anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories to help boost the immune system and delight the palate.
After moving to the United States and taking a high-powered corporate job, her lifestyle changed dramatically. Because of her hectic work schedule, she began to take advantage of the convenience foods that are so readily available in the U.S. today.
Eventually she realized that the highly processed foods, though convenient, were having a negative effect on her health and her you child’s immune system. So she decided to tap back into her culinary roots and philosophy and began cooking wholesome food from scratch.
