There is still time to help us promote healthy eating and raise funds for diabetes research.
Diabetes UK has teamed up with LifeScan, one of the leading developers of blood glucose monitors, to ask the nation to share its top healthy recipes to raise vital funds for diabetes research.
For every recipe submitted, LifeScan will donate 50p to Diabetes UK.
In addition, the best recipes will be selected and published in the near future. However all recipes need to be submitted by
Celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson (pictured, above) is also lending his support to the campaign and has donated one of his own recipes.
The recipe is taken from his book ‘The diabetes weight loss diet’, written with Azmina Govindji and Jane Suthering and in collaboration with Diabetes UK.
“LifeScan’s campaign will help us raise vital funds to try and find a cure for diabetes and support those living with this potentially fatal condition,” said Jemma Edwards, Care Advisor at Diabetes UK.
Antony Worrall Thompson said: “Food is my life and I want to show that people with diabetes can eat delicious food and still maintain a healthy weight.
"The key is to follow a balanced diet, with plenty of fruits and vegetables, but also to realise that you can still enjoy a wide variety of foods as part of healthy eating. I hope people will enjoy my spiced cod dish as it is easy to prepare and full of flavour."
