What Do I Eat Now? A step-by-step guide to eating right with Type 2 Diabetes by Tami Ross
Have you recently been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes or are you (re)committing to a healthier diet because of a previous diagnosis? If so, take time to check out What Do I Eat Now? : A Step-by-Step Guide to Eating Right with Type 2 Diabetes (2nd ed.) by Tami A. Ross and Patti B. Geil.
In this quick read, the authors - both registered dieticians and certified diabetes educators - offer easily understood explanations for how things like the glycemic index work and cover tips on how to safely travel and eat out with diabetes, portion control, smart "swaps" for healthier cooking, more savvy grocery shopping, and even throw in some sample menus and recipes.
If What Do I Eat Now? interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
