Guess what my New Year’s Food Resolution is? To follow all these recipes!

We have a copy of The Low Carb Solution for Diabetics to give away to one lucky reader this month – details below!

UPDATE: The competition has now closed. Anita Steenkamp is the lucky winner of the cookbook – congratulations!

Low Carb 3D cover

“In 2008, when Lucca was eight, he was admitted to intensive care and diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Nothing prepares you for this emotional, life-changing rollercoaster” – Vickie De Beer

When working mother Vickie De Beer’s life changed forever, she and leading paediatric dietician Kath Megaw set about ‘The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics’ – and, in the process, developed an arsenal of the most effective systems and day-to-day strategies for practically dealing with diabetes.

Part emotive journey, part cookbook and part medical reference, and all bundled up in the care and love of devoted parents, The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics is the fruit of their combined findings – at once personal and professional, and essential reading that effectively ‘closes the gap’ for families coping with diabetes.

Underpinned by the knowledge that time is one of today’s most precious commodities, Vickie’s meals are simple to shop for, effortless to prepare and, above all, packed with all the essential nutrients growing bodies and minds need for optimal health. Grouped seasonally and covering all days of the week, from Monday through Sunday (and not forgetting, sauces, treats and drinks),

The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics offers a wide array of choices for every meal of the day and to satisfy all those hunger pangs in between – a happy solution for both busy moms and even busier kids!

  51. Lou Corbitt December 1, 2015 12:06 pm #

    I read so many books on how a diabetic person should prepare their meals,but these are from authors that are not really connected to a true diabetic,at last here are two people who know what they are talking about and I do believe that if we digest the work they have put into their research a diabetic will truly live a healthy life.

    The authors are…Vicky de Beer & Kath Megaw
