From Fudge to Freedom
From Sweet Treats to Healthy Eats
About the Book
When Diana Richards Golden went for a routine doctor’s visit, she learned she had borderline diabetes and hypoglycemia. If she didn’t change her diet, she’d probably get full-blown diabetes.
Golden, who loves baking and making sweets, knew she’d fallen into some bad eating habits. She was never a skinny girl, and sugar always drew her to unhealthy foods.
Her health took another bad turn after she suffered multiple strokes. The medication she was put on gave her cramps and stomach aches, and she became increasingly frustrated. Something needed to change.
With the help of her husband, family, and others, she discovered a healthier lifestyle focused on low-carbohydrate eating in just nine months—one revolving around various recipes she shares in this book, including smoothies, marinades, asparagus roasted with balsamic brown butter, blackberry salmon, and sweet treats.
Whether you’re carrying a few extra pounds, suffer from pre-diabetes or full-blown diabetes, or crave a healthier way of life, you’ll be inspired to make positive changes with the guidance and recipes in From Fudge to Freedom.
