Appealing Recipes for Everyone
Balanced nutrition is the cornerstone of diabetes management and this cookbook has so many great recipes that a diabetic will enjoy but the appeal of this book for me is that the recipes are good for my whole family even if they don't have blood sugar issues. Anyone favoring a lower carb diet will benefit from these recipes as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
There are several recipes I have tagged to try soon but I did make the Crunchy Tuna Salad in Pepper Cups (minus the green pepper since I didn't have any on hand). It is a delicious salad and one I would make to serve guests. Other recipes that appeal to me include the tropical smoothie, lentil-stuffed tomatoes, chicken and snow pea stir-fry, hearty beef minestrone soup, and even desserts such as peanut butter cookies and light and lemony cheesecake. The recipes are easy and use regular ingredients I can find at my local grocery store.
There are some color photographs included and recipe categories include appetizers, beverages, sauces, soups, salads, vegetables, meats, poultry and fish; one-dish meals, breads, muffins and cookies; desserts, soft spreads, chutneys, and pickles. The introduction has a lot of helpful information on diabetes, nutritional values, portion control, and explains the food exchange lists. While written with the Canadian Diabetic Association guidelines in mind, the American exchanges are also included in each recipe.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
