Diabetic Cookbook (1917)
« on: April 11, 2016, 01:25:21 AM »
So LCHF is a new-fangled, experimental fad.  Right?

Nope.

Ninety-nine years ago, Rebecca W. Oppenheimer got it right.  Here's a link from which you may freely download to a whole bunch of file formats:


Oh, by the way .... some of the ingredients may sound strange, but they translate into many of the LCHF ingredients we know today.  Enjoy!

Very interesting. We seem to have lost the way somewhere.

They seem to have understood the rules at the beginning of the last century and drug/food corporations didn't have vested interests to lose.  More's the pity.  This is fascinating.  I wonder if someone will try some of the recipes and tell us the results.  I did notice how many concerned sweets.

I have had this on my iPad for several years.  I don't remember where I got the link, maybe the "other place"?  I think I need to revisit it!!  Thanks for jogging my memory!

I know I once posted it elsewhere.  This book predates the discovery of insulin by 4 years.

I believe the link above is a new one.  Google shows the book is enjoying quite the resurgence!

To be honest, Extreme Bad Practices -- such as high-carb starvation diets -- also existed back in the day.  But I also have a 1920s home-health manual that extols the virtues of the way of eating we now call LCHF.

No recipes in that "newer" book, just a few paragraphs.  Book's not available electronically.  Must track down my copy (it's stored Somewhere Safe) so I can type out those paragraphs.
