The author of Healthy Grilling "focuses on encouraging the consumption of good, wholesome foods, not on making junk food less junky" (Debra Edidin, MD, pediatric endocrinologist, Northwestern University Medical School).
Like everyone else, people with type II diabetes don't have much time to cook, don't want to deal with "gourmet" recipes, and just want to eat their favorite dishes. They want to pop something in the oven, under the broiler, or on the gas grill, and eat what they like without worrying that it will be harmful to them. If they are kids (and the increase of diabetes among teens is alarming), they want to find some ready-to-munch snacks waiting for them.
