The Plant-Powered Plan to Beat Diabetes

A Guide for Prevention and Management

by Sharon Palmer
An inspiring, 100% plant-based cookbook to help manage diabetes, prevent complications, and promote optimal health with easy vegan recipes, advice on meal planning, cooking tips, shopping lists, and more! Celebrated vegan nutritionist Sharon Palmer, aka The Plant-Powered Dietitian, presents 100 plant-based diet recipes for evidence-based diabetes management.

Although there are many cookbooks tailored for people with diabetes, the vegan cookbook for diabetics is rare —a surprising fact given mounting research proving plant-based diets have lasting benefits for people living with diabetes. Nearly 12% of the U.S. population has diabetes, while 38% of adults have prediabetes—and it is our aging generation that carries the heaviest disease burden; roughly half of seniors in the U.S. have prediabetes. This book is especially for them. Sharon explains this research in an accessible and persuasive way with easy-to-understand graphs and charts, but also with a warm and friendly tone that will encourage readers.

In The Plant-Powered Plan to Beat Diabetes, Palmer provides a comprehensive, 100% plant-based eating plan (meaning no meat, fish, eggs, or dairy) based on existing research for managing diabetes. The original photography of her inventive, globally inspired, and heart-healthy recipes make each culinary creation difficult to resist! Find step-by-step meal plans and learn plant-based cooking methods and strategies. Regardless of whether the goal is to go vegan or simply move to a more plant-forward eating style. Palmer makes it easy and convenient to shift eating patterns for good health, while enjoying delicious food!

The popular PlantYou vegan cookbook by Carleigh Bodrug meets the diabetes-focused, Complete Diabetes Cookbook by America’s Test Kitchen with this accessible plant-based cookbook and meal planning guide for people with diabetes. Palmer’s simplified approach to plant-powered eating for diabetes management makes this cookbook an essential gift and tool for loved ones to share with family members living with diabetes, or for clinicians, nutritionists, nurses, or health practitioners who treat and manage patients with diabetes.
“A must-buy for library cookbook collections.” —Library Journal

“Going vegan has been proved to help prevent and treat type 2 diabetes, and this cookbook is full of recipes that can help manage diabetes and promote general health.” — -
