    Hi everyone

    I don’t have diabetes but have a very strong family history of T2 in 2 first degree relatives

    I would be considered at risk, aged over 40, raised BMI and lots of steroids due to asthma!

    Really keen to decrease BMI and risk of T2 using LCHF approach

    Can anyone recommend any LCHF cookbooks, ideally with recipes that are quick and can be frozen for those busy work days when I might not want to cook

    Thanks in advance

    Like @Rachox, I get many of my new recipes or ideas from the internet, but I've also found it easy to adapt most of what used to eat pre diabetes to be suitably low carb, by changing or omitting a few high carb ingredients.

    You can make a big dent in carbohydrate consumption by avoiding high starch foods like pasta, potatoes, rice for example and replacing with cauliflower rice, spiralised courgettes, mashed cauliflower or roast celeriac...

    If you're confident cook just a little ingenuity can be the key!

    Sarah Flower has a new diabetes book - Eating to Beat Type 2 Diabetes, as well as a low carb slow cooker book, both are very good, but the diabetes one includes lots of info and food lists etc

    You can read some of the book here at Google Books.

    You can pick the bones out of it as you wish. :D

    I've just reserved these books from the library to have a look at.
