Upon learning that rice and bread were the culprits for her husband’s type 2 diabetes, Deepa Thomas deconstructed and reinvented her native Indian cuisine. Deepa made anew seventy slow carb recipes, incorporating time-saving Western cooking techniques, breaking-news research on gut health and weight loss, and Ayurvedic wisdom (“When diet is right, medicine is of no need; and when diet is wrong, medicine is of no use.”). After six months of cooking and eating “New Indian,” Deepa lost twenty pounds and freed her husband from a ten-year routine of insulin shots. Part cookbook and part memoir, Deepa’s Secrets introduces breakthrough slow carb and gut-healing recipes that are simple and nutrient-packed, without sacrificing its rich South Asian flavors. On a mission to demystify and make healthy an “exotic” cuisine, Deepa shares shortcuts and techniques that will make “New Indian” everyday fare. Bold and intimate, Deepa’s Secrets will undoubtedly change your cooking, and quite possibly your life.
 
Deepa is gifting all her proceeds from Deepa’s Secrets to FoodCorps, a nonprofit that connects children to healthy food in American schools.
 
“They’re no longer secrets! Home cooks and professional chefs will be inspired to use Deepa’s original, simple methods for harnessing complex flavors to create amazing tastes.”
—Srijith Gopinathan, executive chef of two-Michelin starred Taj Campton Place.
