Transition in the Kitchen

DHF ALUMNI RECIPE GUIDE

Diabetes Hope Foundation recently launched a Transition in the Kitchen Recipe Guide that features quick, easy, delicious, healthy, and diabetes-friendly recipes that can be adapted for special and restrictive diets.

Recognizing the need for providing a tool for students to take charge of their nutritional needs and requirements, Diabetes Hope Foundation, along with their alumni spearheaded a supplementary guide to accompany our “Guide for Successful Transition to College and Universities” to provide youth in transition with easy, healthy recipes and tips for managing their diet and diabetes while living away from home and on campus.

ABOUT THE GUIDE

Focusing on restrictive dietary needs associated diabetes, celiac disease, lactose, tolerance, gluten free and vegan requirements etc., the recipe guide features favorite healthy recipes for study snacks, breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. The final alumni recipe guide has been reviewed and tested by a diabetes educator and registered dietitian to ensure that the recipes will help students achieve balanced diets to thrive while they are at school.

HOW DO I GET A COPY OF THE GUIDE?

Compliments of Eli Lilly Canada and Insulet Canada, DHF’s Transition in the Kitchen recipe guide is available for FREE to download as an ebook or contact us to order a print copy shipped to your home or to someone special as a gift.
