As you may remember, my wife and I have been trying to eat a lot healthier. Not so much a diet, but more of a lifestyle change. I have been trying to cut out as many carbs as possible in order to lower my insulin usage and hopefully increase my insulin sensitivity levels.
So, when I was asked to review a copy of Switch It Up: A Fresh Take On Quick and Easy Diabetes-Friendly Recipes for a Balanced Life by Corinne Trang I thought it was a no brainer because I really need some new recipes.
This book is one of the American Diabetes Association books.
One of the main issues that my wife and I always have is repetitiveness. We find something that we like that is healthy, but then we overdo it and then we start to get bored with it. Once I get bored with something, then it just makes me want to go and eat unhealthy food that may be quick to fix for dinner.
The pictures in this cookbook are unbelievable. A lot of the times my wife may find a recipe online but it’s filled with ads all over the page, confusing cooking instructions or you have to sign up for something in order to read the full recipe. That’s why I like good ole’ fashioned cookbooks and recipe books.
So far, some of my favorites have been the Curry Spiced Chicken Breast, Avocado Corn and Tomato Salad, and Pork Lettuce Wrap with Prune Relish.
