Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust Recipe Book

IDDT recipe bookAs well as recipes, the new IDDT recipe book, Diabetes – Food, Meds and More, has an emphasis on lifestyle, a focus on real life, day-to-day situations and dietary information. The book has came as a response to listening to people with diabetes and their families who have been in contact with the international charity based in Northampton.

IDDT acting chief executive Martin Hirst, who wrote the book along with experienced dietician and nutritionist Dr Mabel Blades, said: “People with diabetes or pre-diabetes are often told they
need to eat healthily and while this is not bad advice, it can leave people feeling confused and without the information they need, at what can be a stressful time. Our experience is that healthy eating means different things to different people and despite views that people should not feel restricted by having diabetes, many people prefer to be given more direction about their
diet, especially at the time of diagnosis, for special occasions or if they are unwell.”

The book also has sections for people with diabetes and coeliac disease, a lifestyle essential, and for vegetarians and vegans with diabetes, lifestyle choices. It is a book to dip into when necessary rather than to read from cover to cover. It is available for £8.99 plus £1.50 postage and packaging from
