Special Diet Cooking Journal

Dear Wife,

I am not a culinary expert, so I won't teach you the art of cooking. I leave that to my favorite blogger-chefs.I am not a gourmet so I am not a good judge of fine food and wine. But I am in the borderline of being diabetic and hypertension and high cholesterol run in the family's royal red blood.

Then I found out that I am not alone. Many of my friends are in the same boat. Many are unaware that we can still enjoy food minus calories without having to eat bland diet.

Panic, panic, I cannot find food blogs that address this segment of population, the people who need special diet.

So I will start with the food recipes provided by my doctor.May I share with you therefore the recipes for special diets.

For this particular journal, I am calling it "Dear Wife."

This one is recommended for candidates for diabetes or are already diabetic.
