New Cookbook has Diabetes & Heart Healthy Meals

New Cookbook has Diabetes & Heart Healthy MealsIf you have diabetes, it can be difficult to come up with new recipes that fit your recommended diet plan.

The American Diabetes Association(ADA) and the American Heart Association(AHA) recently joined forces to tackle this issue, and created a cookbook called: Diabetes & Heart Healthy Meals For Two: Over 150 Delicious Recipes that Help You (Both) Eat Well and Eat Right.

The book contains simple recipes, specially designed for two that take on average ten minutes to prepare(not including cooking time) All recipes fall within the guidelines of a healthy eating plan set forth by both the ADA and AHA. All the recipes include information on calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, and protein, as well as diabetic exchanges or choices.

Why did the ADA and AHA join forces? Because heart disease strikes people with diabetes twice as often as the rest of the population. Diabetics need meals that are both diabetes & heart healthy.

Diabetes Education Centers can also help you develop a meal plan. To locate a center need you, use the Diabetes Education Services Directory.
