ADW Diabetes recently had the chance to speak with bestselling author, television personality, and diabetes expert Marlene Koch about her New York Times bestseller: Eat More of What You Love and how to healthfully to enjoy all the foods you love. Marlene also shared Four Tips for A Healthy, Tasty, Fourth of July, along with a couple of her amazing recipes.
Here is our conversation:
Q: Congratulations on your newest cookbook. How proud you must be to have it appear on both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestseller lists!
A: After ten years of writing healthy cookbooks, it’s incredible of course to have such recognition. What’s more important, however, is that people are aware that this cookbook exists. With so many Americans struggling with weight concerns and diabetes, I’m thrilled to offer them, and their families, an easy-to-use tasty tool that can help them achieve better health.
Q: Your background includes a degree in nutrition as well as experience as a professional cooking instructor, how did you get into writing cookbooks?
A: Quite by accident! While working as a culinary instructor I was asked to create a cooking class featuring low-sugar desserts. Given that my step-daughter, a bona-fide dessert lover, had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I took up the difficult challenge of creating low-sugar baked goods that would look and taste just as good as the “real thing.” Later, when I shared my ideas and recipes with a book editor she suggested I write a cookbook. The rest, as they say, is history. The chocolate cake recipe from my first book has now graced hundreds of thousands of tables and I love that everyone can enjoy it!
