Welcome to the 3rd giveaway in the Books for 2020 Giveaway!

Book one was Singles: Take Control of your Own Financial Journey.  Book two was Everywhere Holy: Seeing Beauty, Remembering Your Identity and Finding God Right Where You Are  (still time to enter – giveaway ends 1/27/20).  Now it’s time to help you find the perfect diabetic recipe!

This giveaway is for a new cookbook published by the American Diabetes Association. 

From weeknight meals for the whole family to snacks on the go and even desserts, there’s something in here for everybody in THE CLEAN & SIMPLE DIABETES COOKBOOK. Best of all, each recipe follows the ADA’s dietary and nutritional guidelines. And a diabetes-friendly diet isn’t a special diet, it’s a smarter diet!

Cooking at home is one of the best ways to eat healthier (and save money!) It can be difficult to know where to start, which is where the new book comes in! In the latest book from dietitian and Gourmand World Cookbook Award-winner Jackie Newgent, readers will learn that eating better to manage your diabetes or prediabetes doesn’t have to be complicated.

This cook book will walk you through the basics of simple, home-cooking, using fresh, whole ingredients to kickstart your healthy, clean-eating lifestyle.

In fact, no one in our family is even diabetic but clean-eating is good for every one so I’m excited to try it out!  And the recipes are delicious!

  • Oaxacan Brunch Style Nachos
  • All-American Portobello “Cheeseburger”
