The Mediterranean diet is now recognised as one of the healthiest in the world. Robin Ellis shows how by simply following such guidelines as eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, cooking with olive oil not butter, seasoning food with herbs and spices rather than salt, avoiding red meat, excluding foods such as white potatoes, white rice and white bread, by limiting dairy products and eating fish or shellfish at least twice a week, those with type 2 diabetes can help to improve their blood sugar levels and enjoy wonderful tasty dishes every day of the week. His recipe collection includes such favourites as Chicken Breast with Lemon and Caper Sauce, North African Lamb with Apricots and Bulgar Wheat, Simple Sea Bass, Pot Roasted Pork with Dried Mushrooms and Juniper Berries, Spaghettini in Walnut Sauce, to name just a few.
