Blurb: Sam Talbot is a professional chef, restaurateur, surfer, painter, philanthropist, and, since the age of 12, type 1 diabetic. Yet he has not let the disease stop him from living a rich life packed with energy, adventure, and achievement—culinary and otherwise. In his first, much-anticipated book, he recounts how diabetes has affected but not compromised his life or career, and he shares his own tips—alongside those from other famous diabetics like Halle Berry, Larry King, and Tommy Lee—on how to handle everything from work and hobbies to relationships and travel with discipline and enthusiasm. To round out this advice, he offers bits of foodie wisdom and 75 innovative recipes for fresh, all-natural dishes anybody, diabetic or not, can prepare and enjoy.
Heartfelt, entertaining, and backed by real-life experience and solid medical expertise, The Sweet Life will give readers hope, inspiration, and the proof they need to realize that life with diabetes isn’t about diabetes: It’s about living.
Review: An inspiring story paired with chic eats to share with the diabetic in your life. While many of these culinary creations sound like fine dining at it's best, be prepared to see ingredients that you might not be able to find at your local shop all store :)
Not like any other diabetic cook book that I have read, the story was as captivating as the meals. Worth the read and maybe you'll find a treat or two that will tempt you to try :) I found several even though I am not a diabetic....but I have members of my family who are :) Thank you to Rodale and Sam Talbot for bringing this to those of us who can learn from books like yours :)
