The Public Health Committee, led by Dr. Thakor Patel, is proud to present this book as a service to the community.

This book tries to present some practical guidelines for health professionals working with Indian clients and the clients themselves who wish to understand how to manage chronic disease conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

We focus on the different regional cuisines and provide background information to illuminate the cultural context from which the ethnic foods and food habits have evolved. Included are meal patterns highlighting typical and modified meal patterns for clients with diabetes, tips for changes and suggestions for weekend planning, and how to modify a high-fat recipe into a more heart-healthy one.
