Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Despite embracing healthy behaviors in a profession that often embraces vices, Australian chef Moore was shocked to discover he was diabetic at age 35. After suffering a diabetes-related stroke, he vowed to revise his diet and stay as healthy as possible. For years he has shared that information throughout his native Australia on television and in books; here, in his follow-up to 2011’s Blood Sugar, he offers his take on healthy diabetic-friendly dishes in a terrific and approachable collection. Dishes like fluffy lemon ricotta hotcakes; egg, bacon, and mushroom breakfast pita pockets; seared spice-crusted tuna sliders; rich chocolate cake; and cinnamon apple upside-down pudding are surefire hits, but it’s his eye for ingenuity that will ensure repeat reads. Steaming mussels, fennel, white wine, and garlic in an aluminum foil satchel is a terrific and mess-free way to serve up the popular bivalves; kids will appreciate his healthy nod to the ubiquitous fried chicken nuggets that employ raw buckwheat for the crunchy exterior, and his Pack N Go Snack Bags show empathy for those with dietary restrictions. Nutrition information isn’t included for the recipes, but exchanges are, making this one book diabetics will want to seriously consider adding to their bookshelf. (Mar.)

Library Journal
Chef Moore (Blood Sugar) shares recipes and lifestyle advice for families supporting a diabetes diagnosis. Family-friendly dishes like sweet potato fries, crunchy chicken nuggets, and Not-so-Naughty Chocolate Cake use whole grains, fresh produce, and unrefined sweeteners instead of ingredients with a high glycemic index. Unique beverages also get a protein boost from whey powder, silken tofu, and egg whites. Recipes include a carbohydrate exchange number for insulin-dependent diabetics and list metric measurements only. This is an Australian title, so expect a few unfamiliar terms. VERDICT With its tempting and beautifully photographed foods, this title is a great choice for diabetics and anyone wanting to eat more protein, vegetables, and whole grains.
