KUWAIT: Diet Care, Kuwait’s leading nutritional services provider, launched Kuwait’s first cookbook for preparing healthy Arabic and international dishes that are also low in calories while keeping the great and delicious taste of Arabic and international food that everyone loves.
Diet Care has developed and produced this cookbook as part of its ongoing efforts to promote healthy eating in Kuwait and combating the obesity epidemic in the country, which has the second highest obesity rate in the world according to research by BMC public health journal.
Diet Care Assistant Production General Manager, Mariam Al- Othman said: “This cookbook doesn’t just provide healthy recipes, it helps households make their signature Arabic and international dishes that they love in a healthier way. It is also rich in tips and contains essential calorie count control and other information to help families track what they’re eating. “Healthy Cooking”, the book’s title, is a definite must-have in every family kitchen.”
The nutritional content was developed at Diet Care by some of Kuwait’s leading dietitians and nutritionists. The team spent four months formulating the various recipes and ensuring that it tasted great and was healthy and low in calories at the same time.
Diet Care Dietetics Operations Manager, Sarah Dimashkieh added: “Lack of information plays a pivotal part in the unhealthy eating habits in Kuwait, this is the reason we adapted a “tell-it-all” approach with the cookbook. “Healthy Cooking” by Diet Care stands as a measure we have taken to ensure the community is in fact privy to healthy recipes.”
The cookbook consists of recipes from various parts of the world including traditional Arabic items to Asian and even South American dishes. It also includes the nutritional contents for each recipe, healthy cooking tips and a quick-guide to the benefits of the various nutrients found in the recipe.
Three thousand copies of the “Healthy Cooking” by Diet Care cookbook have been published and are available throughout Diet Care branches and boutiques.
