Canada's Everyday Diabetes Choice Recipes is a collection of recipes from a variety of authors. It reflects the wealth of cooking styles and foods used across Canada.

Anyone involved in diabetes care knows that dietary intake is a key factor in delaying the onset of, and managing, diabetes. Studies have shown this time and again. This collection of recipes provides you and your family with many great dishes, along with information on how to include them in a healthy lifestyle.

More and more Canadians are being diagnosed with diabetes or some form of glucose intolerance every day. Good nutrition and healthy eating together with an active lifestyle are keys to successfully managing blood glucose levels, while reducing the risk for other chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and cancer.

All recipes in this book have been analyzed for nutrient content and on each page you will find the nutrient information (energy in calories, carbohydrate, fiber, protein, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium) to help you include these recipes in a healthy lifestyle or fit them into your meal plan.

The Canadian Diabetes Association Food Choice Values and Symbols system is provided for those who follow a meal plan and use the Good Health Eating Guide. Carbohydrate and fiber have been included with each recipe to permit easy carbohydrate counting for those who like more flexibility at meals. Whatever method you choose to provide yourself with great nutrition, these recipes are for you.

Recipe tips, make-ahead information and suggestions for completing meals are also included. You are sure to find new spins on some of your family's favorites and other recipes that will soon become standards. I hope you will find this a welcome addition to your healthy lifestyle.
