“Robyn Webb’s Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook is as good as it gets! Robyn’s clear and creative recipes and obvious passion and reverence for the quality and source of ingredients are the perfect medicine for people with diabetes and their families.”
Michel Nuschan, owner and founder of Dressing Room, his homegrown restaurant in Westport, CT and CEO and president of Wholesome Wave Foundation.
“What a beautiful, compelling book! The recipes are at once simple, sensual, and customized for people with diabetes. Robyn’s overall comfort food message reassures that one’s diet needn’t compromise on pleasure when skewing healthy. Good food can do us a world of good, and can taste great in the process. Robyn makes this very clear.”
Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook
“After drooling over the beautiful food photography, I found myself wish that the Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook was a scratch and sniff cookbook. Robyn Webb has single-handedly changed the stigma of the diabetic diet from one of deprivation to celebration! Brava, Robyn!”
David Grotto, RD, LDN, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life!
Webb (Eat To Beat Diabetes) gives comfort food recipes a makeover, adjusting the fat, sodium, sugar, and serving size for people using diet to help manage their diabetes. Hamburgers, baked potato skins, creamy mushroom soup, barbecue chicken, crab cakes, quesadillas, cheesecake, and brownies all appear in chapters covering everything from appetizers to American classics and international dishes to desserts. For maximum flavor and convenience, fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs are combined with preprepared ingredients like canned beans and condiments. While some ingredients lists are long, recipe preparation and cooking are generally simple. Helpful cooking tips, serving size and nutrition information, and a produce-buying guide are included. VERDICT With its unintimidating style and diverse collection of recipes, this recommended book offers comfort food as well as mealtime variety for diabetics and nondiabetics alike.—J.B.
