About the Author
Angela Shelf Medearis, “The Kitchen Diva,” is a chef, cookbook author, a regular guest chef on The Dr. Oz Show and the Today show, columnist and a celebrity-chef judge for cooking competitions. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her family.
Here is what Toni Campbell, one of the purchasers of this cookbook, has to say in her review on Amazon:
“I’ve been a fan of Angela Shelf Medearis since she came to a booksigning at the store that I managed at the time, with actual food made from recipes from her book The African-American Kitchen… You could tell that her commitment to great food was so strong that she brought that food with her on the plane from her home in Texas.
Motivated by several members of her family diagnosed with diabetes, Medearis has created and re-created recipes that are healthy and sensitive to insulin imbalance. She shows you how to set up and stock a healthy kitchen including using sugar alternatives. Her cooking has always included the use of lots of fruits and vegetables and this book is no different. Also, the recipes are easy on the chef and the wallet. Nutritional information is included with every entry and there are beautiful color pictures throughout.
My favorites are the Seafood Burgers and the Veggie Lasagne. Part of the focus of the book is to make cooking at home easier and more fun, since it’s harder to have control when dining out. While I didn’t like that a lot of the recipes relied heavily on using the microwave, I still recommend it.”
Charlotte Lyons, former food editor for Ebony magazine says…
“I have been a fan of Angela Shelf Medearis for years. This cookbook is a must have. It is chock-full of delicious recipes and excellent information for people with diabetes or anyone who enjoys good, healthy foods.”
The Kitchen Diva’s Diabetic Cookbook: 150 Healthy, Delicious Recipes for Diabetics and Those Who Dine with Them is the perfect cookbook for anyone seeking a variety of imaginative, healthy, and delicious recipes suitable for diabetics as well as those who share meals with them.
