            Kai is different. Kai, the doctors will eventually realize, is autistic. Of course, like everyone on the spectrum, Kai isn't just autistic - he's so much more than that. Kai is Kai. Doctors used to find one case of autism among every five thousand people. Today, according to a st...udy by the US Department of Health and Human Services, the ratio is one in fifty-eight. Scientists speak of an epidemic. Kai may be different, but he is not alone. Henry, Kai's father, is one of the world's most famous neuroscientists, the man behind the billion dollar Blue Brain Project to build a supercomputer model of the human brain. Nevertheless, when his son began withdrawing, Henry was as helpless as all the other parents. He asked himself the same questions they did: What is autism? How can I help my child? He researched for fifteen years. His findings would upend everything we thought we knew about autism. They would offer us a whole new vantage from which to consider all disorders of the mind. If Henry had just been a scientist, even a great one, he would have failed. He only succeeded thanks to Kai, the boy who changed everything.

            Blood Sugar: The Family is packed full of everyday inspiring recipes for anyone facing the challenges of diabetes and healthy living. All the family favourites are here, with a twist on health. Eight years after he was diagnosed as a diabetic, Michael suffered a stroke. A committ...ed family man, and still an ambitious chef, a world leading cook, TV personality and food commentator, Michael has embarked on a campaign to help diabetics eat fabulous food. What about breakfast with a high protein iced espresso coffee ripple with tofu? Or a strawberry mojito, basil, lime and ginger as a pick me up. Kids love the chickpea and corn fritters with bacon and avocado as a great start to the day. Snacks include chicken nuggets with crusted buckwheat to make a low GI snack. Salads abound with flavour combinations that have every taste bud jumping. Try roasted cauliflower and haloumi salad with sumac, rare tuna and kale salad with soy, beans and red quinoa or the classic lemon chicken and power food salad. Diabetics doni??t have to stop eating exciting food and Michael ensures that the desserts are not left out. Of course he has a not-so-naughty chocolate cake that is low fat, low GI, high protein and low sugar - enough said! A low fat low sugar cinnamon apple upside-down pudding is a winter warmer. Finishing with great sauces, pickles and preserves, Blood Sugar: The Family has everything you need to make your kitchen sing with health. The book includes a major section on The Family Kitchen and The Family Pantry, with tips and ideas for substitutes to ensure you make a healthy choice of food each time.
