Summary: In 1900, only two percent of meals in America were eaten outside the home; now it is over fifty percent. Hyman calls for readers to take back their health by taking back their kitchens. The major culprit of diabetes, obesity and heart disease is insulin imbalance. Following Hyman's program for rebalancing insulin and blood sugar levels, this cookbook presents delectable recipes that are free of allergens and harmful inflammatory ingredients.
Features 200 recipes that exchange toxic mass-produced foods with made-at-home versions including Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce, Mexican Shrimp Ceviche, and Raspberry Banana Cream Pie Smoothies that will maintain balanced insulin and blood sugar levels and promote a healthier lifestyle.
