Diabetes without Boundaries

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Sam Talbot is a professional chef, restaurateur, surfer, painter, philanthropist, and, since the age of 12, type 1 diabetic. Yet he has not let the disease stop him from living a rich life packed with energy, adventure, and achievement-- culinary and otherwise. In his first, much-anticipated book, he recounts how diabetes has affected but not compromised his life or career, and he shares his own tips--alongside those from other famous diabetics like Halle Berry, Larry King, and Tommy Lee--on how to handle everything from work and hobbies to relationships and travel with discipline and enthusiasm. To round out this advice, he offers bits of foodie wisdom and 75 innovative recipes for fresh, all-natural dishes anybody, diabetic or not, can prepare and enjoy.

Heartfelt, entertaining, and backed by real-life experience and solid medical expertise, The Sweet Life will give readers hope, inspiration, and the proof they need to realize that life with diabetes isn't about diabetes: It's about living.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 17, 2011 – A collection of diabetic-friendly recipes isn’t exactly what you’d expect when a former Top Chef star and acclaimed Hamptons chef comes out with his first cookbook. But Talbot was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 12—three years before he got his first cooking job—and he’s been figuring out how to prepare stellar food that he can eat ever since. His recipes are healthy, appealing, and straightforward: “no show business, no gimmicks, no ‘butter-poached spot prawns with celeriac-laced truffle fries and maple-bacon-scented Brussels sprouts topped with crunchy croutons and basil.’ ” He uses high-carb foods judiciously, and thoughtfully incorporates blood sugar regulating ingredients. Baked eggs with chickpeas and harissa; lentils with turkey sausage and mustard greens; and stir-fried cucumbers with poppy seeds and grapefruit, for example, feature elements that actively aid in sugar control. Seafood figures prominently in many enticing dishes, including peekytoe crab salad with summer corn; squid with cherries, tomatoes, basil, and mint; and simple black bass with kale and kalamata olives. Talbot goes holistic by covering topics such as sustainable fishing and his fitness routine, and rounds out the recipes with dessert offerings like warm mango with chile honey and lavender poached pears. Whether or not someone is diabetic, this is a valuable resource for wellness and good eating.
