Overview

People with diabetes know that cooking at home means healthier meals, but they also assume it means more planning, cleaning, and work. Best-selling author Linda Gassenheimer proves just the opposite — preparing delicious, diabetes-friendly meals is easier than most people imagine. Just let the supermarket do the work! By using convenience foods and fresh products from the supermarket bakery and butcher, Fast and Flavorful shows readers how to make great meals they won't believe are diabetes-friendly and save time and effort in the process. Best of all, each recipe is presented as part of a complete meal, designed specifically for two people. Each meal comes with instructions for preparing recipes simultaneously, a complete shopping list, and cooking tips, time-saving techniques, and meal planning advice straight from Linda's "Dinner in Minutes" newspaper column. It turns out that cooking fantastic, nutritious meals is easier than anyone thought possible.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gassenheimer (Mix 'n' Match Meals in Minutes) again focuses on meals that taste good and are a snap to make. The "market" in the subtitle refers to the supermarket—not the farmers' market—and purchasing preprepared ingredients, from prechopped fresh onions to canned potatoes, is part of what makes meals come together quickly. Main dishes centered on seafood, poultry, pork, beef, veal, and lamb are paired with a complementary side and serve two people. Each recipe is accompanied by a shopping list, ingredient substitutions, and game plan for coordinating preparation between different parts of the meal. Serving size and nutrition information is also included. VERDICT Diabetic readers who want meat entrées, especially seafood, and have minimal time will be pleased to find Gassenheimer's book. With only five meatless meals here, vegetarians and those trying to reduce their meat consumption will find little of interest.—J.B.
