The Southern Comfort Food Diabetes Cookbook with Author and Registered Dietitian Maya Feller


November is American Diabetes Month, a month dedicated to bringing attention to diabetes. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with the disease you are already aware of the challenges of life with diabetes. Today's guest, Registered Dietitian Maya Feller is here to help. Maya recently published The Southern Comfort Food Diabetes Cookbook and she stops by to share how you can still enjoy southern comfort recipes and other cuisines even if with a diabetes diagnosis. Chock full of delicious, nutritious recipes including a few stews which I'm craving on this cold Connecticut day, this is a cookbook you'll enjoy whether you have diabetes or not. In addition to her diabetes focused tips, Maya provides insights on what it's really like to work with a registered dietitian (hint: you don't have to throw away every item in your pantry) and how you can get signed copies of her book that would make a wonderful gift this holiday season! Maya has shared her approachable, real food based solutions to millions of people through regular speaking engagements and as a national nutrition expert on Good Morning America, Dr. Oz and more. It is such an honor to have her on the show!
