Guest Blog: Slow Cooker Cuban-Style Beef Stew By Shelby Kinnaird

Cuban-Style Beef Stew called Carne con Papas Served Up on Livliga!

Fall has arrived and you know what that means: it’s slow cooker season! Dust off your pot and let’s make a Cuban-Style Beef Stew called Carne con Papas.

When I told my friend Anna Norton, CEO of DiabetesSisters, that I was writing a healthy slow cooker cookbook, she told me about a traditional Cuban recipe from her mother, Caridad Tang. Anna had taken her mother’s recipe and adapted it for both the slow cooker and to make it more diabetes-friendly. She wanted to make sure she exposed her son to the foods of her childhood.

Let me tell you, after this dish had been cooking for a few hours, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the beef stew my mom and grandma used to make. The aroma was intoxicating and very familiar even though I don’t have a drop of Cuban blood in me.

Book Review - Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook by Shelby Kinnaird and Simone Harounian

Monday, October 11, 2021


Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook

I want to mention upfront that I received a complimentary copy of this book and was asked to share a review of my honest thoughts regarding “Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook.” The thoughts below are my own and come from reading the cookbook and testing out some of the recipes.

This is a great Slow Cooker cookbook! I have been a follower and admirer of Shelby Kinnaird for many years. The partnership between Shelby and Simone Harounian shines through this book. It is clear they want to help people live life as their healthiest selves. They do this throughout the cookbook by sharing their expertise, experience and passion. Shelby and Simone put their personal and practical knowledge on the line for all of us. It is clear they have put thought and their love for us and good food on every page.

First they share why slow cookers can be great for your health. This includes a section about “Eating Healthy with Diabetes” which is an uncomplicated overview of the basics. It is a great reference guide for those living with diabetes…and honestly relevant to all of us wanting to eat healthy.

Then there is a section on “Golden Rules of Slow Cooking.” You are going to love this part! Again it is filled with common sense advice when using slow cookers. We all need to be reminded of these Golden Rules!

There are many other parts of the book that help you be a better cook and a successful chef with a slow cooker. For instance, they guide you on how to make a balanced meal using the recipes in the cookbook. Shelby and Simone also point out that there is always room for Comfort Food in a healthy lifestyle and they list some of their favorites they have included in the cookbook.

Sweet and Sour Scallops from Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook

When checking out the merits of a cookbook it is a must that you also check out the recipes. I can say I have prepared two recipes so far: “Sweet and Sour Scallops” (see photo above) which I served with brown rice and steamed edamame as well as a side dish, “Orange Carrots and Parsnips” which I served with roasted pork and steamed broccoli. The ingredients included are primarily fresh and focused on wonderful combinations of whole foods that are accessible at your local grocery store. Both were easy to follow, created attractive dishes, and were tasty. My true test is to share recipes with my family and if they say the recipes are a “repeat” then I know they have hit the mark. Both recipes were voted to be “repeats.”

If you are looking for a slow cooker cookbook that also provides a great resource for those living with diabetes as well as those wanting to live a healthy lifestyle, this book is for you. I for one am adding it to my bookshelf with my other favorites that I use regularly. I recommend this cookbook.

Livliga is Closing its Retail Doors with a HUGE SALE at unheard of prices!

Friday, October 1, 2021

Final Sale with 60% OFF and Free Shipping!


Dear Friends and Supporters-

Livliga has a big announcement to make. We are closing down our retail operation. This was not an easy decision or one that came without a lot of consideration. As many of you realize, because of the profound effect of the Pandemic, Livliga, like so many other businesses, was challenged with trying to get product manufactured, shipped and sold through our retail channels. We have not found it possible to overcome these obstacles, even after so many months.

As a thank you to all our customers we are offering all our regularly priced products at 60% OFF and FREE Shipping…while supplies last. As you understand, all sales will be final. This is a now-or-never offer that will allow everyone to collect all their favorite Livliga tableware. Please help spread the word!

What’s next? Livliga is transitioning to a new business model. We are now only offering our product through licensing agreements. These agreements will be tailored to the specific interests and needs of each company. Should you be interested in finding out more or would like to pursue a licensing agreement, please contact us so we can assist you in meeting your needs.

We will also be offering consultation services. Livliga’s success is as a result of years of research and development. With 3 utility patents and 3 national awards we have been able to help people live healthier lives. We want to make our years of experience available to others. To make an appointment or to find out more about our consultation services please feel free to reach out to us.

Walt and I so appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and support as we developed our tableware line, launched it, and expanded it over the years. Our retail operation grew every year…thanks to you!

The Livliga Team is so proud of the innovation we introduced to the Health and Wellness industry. We are eager to continue to expand the possibilities through our licensing and consultation services. It took a lot of talent to deliver our unique and effective line of tableware so we plan on leveraging that intelligence as we move forward.

All of us are humbled by the difference we have made in so many people’s lives. We get notes, emails, and reviews everyday from people sharing their stories on why Livliga works and how Livliga has made a difference in their lives. There can be no greater success than those stories!

We look forward to our next adventures in continuing our mission to help people live healthier lives. Let us know how we can work together to advance this effort for all of us.

Live vibrant!

Sheila and Walt Dietrich
