Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
10/01/2013
Cookbook author and nutritionist Webb (Diabetic Meals in 30 Minutes—or Less!) believes strategic shopping can ease the stress of daily cooking and meal planning. After introducing how to navigate a grocery store and interpret food labels, she shares recipes made with convenience foods from four grocery "zones" (deli counter, salad bar, freezer, and shelves). Black and white bean salad, salad bar pizza, mushroom polenta, and other dishes incorporate canned, packaged, and frozen ingredients (many low-fat, low-sodium, or sugar-free). Some of these products can vary in salt and sugar content, so readers should read labels carefully. VERDICT Easy preparations, a readable layout, and a convenient "Fast & Fabulous Meal Planner" make this a good choice for busy readers with limited access to specialty ingredients.
