This innovative, graphic cookbook offers the easiest and most flavourful way to build complete meals that are diabetes-friendly and delicious. Sidestepping complex programs that turn meal-planning into work, the 90 complete meals in Diabetes Meals by the Plate follow the Plate Method-a simple approach to eating the right foods in proper amounts by filling your plate with one half nonstarchy vegetables, one quarter protein, and one quarter starch. A clever photo style showing every meal in its three components makes it easy to enjoy perfectly portioned plates of Balsamic Roasted Chicken and Vegetables with Garlic Toast, or Horseradish BBQ-Topped Mini Meat Loaves with Chopped Romaine Salad. All meals are 500 calories or less. Two "extras" chapters help you add in simple sides and desserts.
A visual guide to meal planning using the Plate Method, a simple graphic that divides the plate into three portions to show how to enjoy a full plate of food that is carb- and calorie-balanced. With 90 meals, each fully photographed showing the portion sizes for vegetables, protein, and starches (plus extras), eating healthy is easy: just fill your plate!
