Celebrity chef Sam Talbot has partnered with the glucose monitors maker OneTouch to launch the What’s Cookin’ Down Home Healthy™ Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes, designed to spread the word that eating healthy with diabetes can also be easy and delicious, will run for five weeks, beginning September 11th and is open to individuals 18 or older by visiting the OneTouch Facebook page.
For many of the millions of Americans living with diabetes the words “eating healthy” are too often associated with bland and boring food choices, and having to say “no” to some of their favorite dishes. But nothing could be further from the truth, according to Celebrity Chef and type 1 diabetic Sam Talbot. Talbot is a “Fan Favorite” on Bravo’s “Top Chef” and the author of The Sweet Life: Diabetes Without Boundaries.
Each week, fans will see recipes and videos of healthy dishes from Talbot’s cookbook. To enter, fans are asked to “like” the OneTouch Facebook page, vote for their favorite recipe of the week and then enter for a chance to win the Grand Prize — a personal cooking lesson by Talbot for the winner and three guests. Talbot will travel to a major city near the winner’s hometown, where he’ll teach the winner and guests how to prepare meals that are as delicious as they are healthy. In addition, each week five of Sam’s cookbooks and five OneTouch® Verio®IQ Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems will be awarded.
