The NYC FOODIE book of the week is Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss by Dr. Howard M. Shapiro and Chef Franklin Becker. I was lucky enough to be at this book launch lunch at Abe & Arthur's where Chef Becker is the chef, and try some of these great dishes straight from the book. You can really eat healthy food that tastes great! Check it out:
Delicious Italian styled pickled vegetables and marinated mushroom antipasto.
Three bean salad with ginger lemon vinaigrette and grilled shrimp with a cucumber-mango salad would make anyone smile!
Roasted free range chicken with field mushrooms and asparagus. A perfectly cooked and tasty bird!
Finished off with a sugar free panna cotta and citrus granita. A sweet and great ending to a healthy and fabulous meal!
