The Blood Solution Sugar Cookbook

Knowing how rampant the issue of obesity and how it affects our blood sugar, it's no wonder that today there are more diagnosed cases of Type 2 Diabetes than ever before and it's not only affecting older adults but teens and young children as well. So what can you do?

Dr. Mark Hyman offers a solution to help remedy the spikes in one's blood sugar and to aid in reducing our dependency on sugary foods in his latest book, The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook. It is the perfect companion book to accompany his earlier book, The Blood Sugar Solution. Having a mother-in-law with Diabetes and knowing that my husband and children are susceptible to possibly having health issues in the near future, I wanted to know what I could do now to eliminate the need for insulin shots later as well all know how important diet and exercise can play in reducing our dependency on drugs to treat diabetes.

In this book, Dr. Hyman presents more than 175 delicious and simply easy to make meals and recipes that support the Blood Sugar Solution lifestyle, allowing you to take back your health with wholesome, flavorful and simple meals. "We all know the cure for what ails us - both in our bodies and in our nation - can be found in the kitchen. It is a place to rebuild community and connection, strengthen bonds with family and friends, teach life-giving skills to our children, enrich and nourish our bodies and souls. Yet, in the twenty-first century, our kitchens (and our taste buds) have been hijacked by the food industry. In 1900 only 2 percent of our meals were eaten outside of the home; today that number is over 50 percent. " (pg 11).

We need a revolution to take back our kitchens and our homes. The solution is in our shopping carts, our refridgerators, and our cupboards - and on our dining room tables. This is where the power is. It is in the hundreds of small choices you make every day, choices that will topple the monolithic food industry. We have now raised the second generation of Americans who don't know how to cook. The average child in American doesn't know how to identify even the most basic fruits and vegetables; our kids don't know where their food comes from or even that it grows on a farm. Cooking means microwaving. Food comes in boxes, plastic bags and cans. Reading labels is supremely unhelpful in identifying the source of most foods - the ingredients are mostly factory-made science projects with a remote and unrecognizable lineage to real food.

This book gives you advice on what to keep and what to discard from your fridge, pantry, and shopping cart. It also provides recipes to delight your palate, stimulate your senses, and nourish your body and soul. The recipes are designed to be made, shared, and enjoyed with family and friends. In this one way, one by one, kitchen by kitchen, community by community - we will take back our health together.

I received The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook by Dr. Mark Hyman compliments of Little Brown and Company, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review and received no monetary compensation for a favorable one. Seeing as how this could definitely benefit virtually everyone I know and help them get back to maintaining a healthier lifestyle, I can easily rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars. This book shows you how to make plans now to get back to a healthy way of eating including how to having fun while cooking, what kitchen tools every kitchen should have and the recipes are geared by not only price but length of time to cook, so you can find something to please every single time management and financial situation.

  1. I'm a HUGE Mark Hyman fan; have read and taken his advice from The UltraSimple Diet, UltraMetabolism and now The Blood Sugar Solution. In seven years, epidemiologists expect 60% of the adult population to have Type 2 Diabetes. It's an epidemic. I just found out I have it. For years, I haven't eaten much sugar, but I also hadn't been eating correctly. Too much of the things Dr. Hyman says are no-no's.
