Barnard (Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes) and Webb (Diabetic Meals in 30 Minutes-or Less!) have put together a terrific lifestyle guide for anyone wishing to lose weight, cut cholesterol, and reverse the symptoms of type 2 diabetes. After they detail the science behind a low-fat vegan diet, the authors include tons of simple, healthful breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes for a variety of palates, including, e.g., breakfasts savory (Spicy Spinach Frittata) and sweet (Soy Yogurt Fruit and Granola Parfait). Recipes are short and contain detailed information on calories, saturated fat, and vitamins and minerals. A three-day menu plan, pantry list, themed menus, and a "Quick & Easy Shopping List" round out the book. Verdict A good complement to Donna Klein's Vegan Italiano and The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen, this is recommended for vegetarians and those looking to expand their diabetic cookbook collection.-Mary Schons, Hammond P.L., IN (c) Copyright 2010.
