The Low Carb Solution for Diabetics

The Low Carb Solution for Diabetics by Vickie de Beer and Kath Megaw, published by Quivertree Publications, is both a cookbook and a revolutionary living plan for Diabetics and their families.

In an age where Diabetes stats are soaring beyond our control, we need alternative solutions. Most information available to Diabetics, particularly in South Africa, is presented in formats that are difficult to digest and much of the information is out of date. This title needed to be accessible to families – large chunks of information are made easier to consume with the help of illustrations and typographically-interesting pull quotes.

In this title, food editor Vickie de Beer shares the low carb journey of her son who lives with Diabetes. Packed with delicious recipes by Vickie and lots of tips and tricks this title is sure to be life-changing. Leading paediatric dietitian Kath Megaw endorses the low carb plan with scientific data, unique nutritional wheels and portion guidelines.

The title was also the winner of the Sunday Times Cookbook of the Year 2015 and has subsequently been published internationally. It is available in the UK from Pavilion Books.
