Kate’s approach to cooking includes unprocessed, seasonal ingredients. That’s why she uses real sugar, real butter, and minimally processed foods in her recipes. Living with diabetes means eating healthy foods in controlled potions.
In her first cookbook, The New Diabetes Cookbook: 100 mouthwatering, seasonal, whole food recipes, Kate shares recipes like Buffalo Chicken Cigars, Farmhouse Salad, and Orange, Chocolate, & Ancho Chile Cakes.
Kate’s approach to healthy cooking is simple; she creates hearty, flavorful meals using whole unprocessed foods with regard to nutrition and portion size. Her style, American Peasant Cuisine, combines naturally healthy ingredients (like ginger and cinnamon) with regional foods, such as wild caught fish, native crops, and sustainably raised meat. American Peasant is a nod to the healthier, heartier food that we once ate before processing monopolized the food system. The beauty of America’s cultural melting pot is mirrored in American Peasant cuisine. By borrowing flavors from cultures worldwide and combining them, the recipes reflect a true melding of ingredients to boost flavor and health.
