The Paleo Diabetes Diet Solution: a new book

Manage Your Blood Sugar with 125 Recipes Plus a 30-Day Meal Plan

by Jill Hillhouse, CNP and Lisa Cantkier, CHN

Lisa Cantkier and Jill Hillhouse are well-known in the gluten-free world, not only in their home country of Canada but also across the U.S. as well. I have worked with Lisa many times through her website at GlutenFreeFind. Lisa and Jill have teamed up to write a new book, The Paleo Diabetes Diet Solution, and Lisa was kind enough to send me a copy.

November is National Diabetes Month, so this book is very timely. I think many of you might be interested in what it has to say.

Paleo Diabetes Diet Solution

Borrowing from the press release, the authors say, “Millions of people are living with diabetes, and many experts believe that the regular consumption of packaged and processed foods is the leading cause of diabetes and other chronic diseases. A paleo diet isn’t a magic bullet, but all the recent research points to the fact that it can effectively manage as well as lower your risk for diabetes.”

The foundation of the paleo diet is fresh, unprocessed grass-fed meat, whole fruit, vegetables, seeds and nuts. It’s a nutrient-dense, low-carb, fiber‑rich diet high in vitamins and minerals. These paleo-inspired recipes will give you the tools you need to manage or reverse high blood sugar levels while enjoying delicious food at the same time.”

The recipes in the book range widely from soups such as Mexican Chicken Soup and Detox Vegetable Soup, to hearty and healthy salads like Taco Salad and Rainbow Roots Slaw with Tahini Parsley Dressing, to mains of Skillet-Grilled Flank Steak with Nut-Crusted Portobello Slices, Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Avocado Pesto and Butter Chicken with Cilantro Cauliflower – not to mention sides like Garlicky Roasted Broccoli and Nori Egg Rolls and satisfying “extras” like Almond Flax Crackers and Soft Serve Coconut Banana Freeze. These paleo-inspired recipes give you the tools you need to manage or reverse high blood sugar levels while enjoying delicious foods.

There is also a 30-day meal plan that is very helpful in guiding newcomers to implement a paleo diet for themselves.
