Chef Robert Lewis "The Happy Diabetic"
Chef Robert Lewis doesn’t let Type 2 Diabetes slow him down and neither should you.
“I grew up in a family that loved to cook and eat. When I first learned I had diabetes 20 years ago, I thought ‘My days of enjoying good food were over.’ I was wrong!”
A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America (New York), Chef Robert fulfilled a legacy of family cooking he enjoyed from childhood. Today, he inspires cooks and non-cooks alike to be creative, broaden your food horizons, and enjoy food no matter what your health challenge.
