Focus on diabetes.
This unique cookbook provides month-by-month, even day-by-day meal plans and recipes. The menus also feature weekly grocery lists to help busy homemakers save time (and money). Menus include healthy portions of omega-3-rich foods, such as fresh salmon, that help reduce the risk of heart disease and lower blood cholesterol and blood pressure.
According to the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP), diabetes prevention is proven, possible, and powerful. Studies demonstrate that people at high risk for type 2 diabetes can prevent or delay the onset of the disease significantly by losing a modest amount of weight through dietary modification and regular exercise.
The salmon recipe that follows is a sample from the cookbook's quick, tasty, and healthy menu ideas that help take the guesswork out of year-round food plans.
