Express Lane Diabetic Cooking : Hassle-Free Meals Using Ingredients from the Deli, Salad Bar, and Freezer Sections of Your Grocery Sby Robyn Webb, Nancy S. Hughes
The plight of many harried working families is getting dinner on the table. This chore is made all the more complicated if any family members are on restricted diets. Enter food expert and nutritionist, Robyn Webb. Over the past 15 years, Webb has helped thousands of Americans to regulate their diets while still indulging in great food. Now in Express Lane Diabetic Cooking, she tackles the dilemma of eating right while answering the demands of today's busy lifestyles. By creatively and intelligently using the supermarket's food sections, she has developed an ingenious and healthful solution to making mealtime effortless.
Amazingly, of the 150 recipes in Express Lane Diabetic Cooking, many take less than 20 minutes, and some use no more than five ingredients. Perhaps even more surprising is that she accomplishes this while delivering a cookbook chock-full of tantalizing recipes. In what can only be described as a flash of brilliance, Webb divides her book to align with the different sections of the supermarket. After an introduction to her system of using ready-made ingredients, she breaks the book down into: Recipes Using the Deli, the Salad Bar, Frozen Foods, and Shelf-Stable Foods.
Using the time-honored techniques of fine cooking, Webb reduces the fat, but never the flavor. Whether it's a tangy Moroccan Carrot Salad, Creamy Parmesan-Basil Ham and Penne, or a Deli Chicken Gyro, Express Lane Diabetic Cooking is a medley of tempting international cuisines. Of course, there is also the down-home taste of Real Barbecued Roast Beef Open-Faced Sandwiches and Old-Fashioned Corn and Rice Pudding. In addition, there are helpful sidebars throughout, as well as substitutions, exchanges, complete nutritional information, and a glossary of ingredients with tips for selection and storing.
Owner of the successful A Pinch of Thyme Cooking School in Alexandria, Virginia, Robyn Webb, M.S., is also the author of five cookbooks, including Robyn Webb's Memorable Menus Made Easy and Diabetic Meals in 30 Minutes or Less!
