Delicious Diabetes Cooking for One or Two People – Delicious diabetes-suitable meals, whether you’re dining alone or with a companion.
There’s no reason to settle for leftovers or a hastily thrown together meal when you could be cooking with these sumptuous recipes specifically designed for one or two people. (They can also be easily scaled up if you’re entertaining.)
All these wonderful recipes will be enjoyed by anyone, diabetic or not, and many are even suitable, with a minimum of adjustment, for those managing other dietary restrictions such as gluten or dairy allergies. None of the recipes is long or complicated, and they all feature easily accessible ingredients to encourage you to cook on your own. They make cooking for diabetes management an exciting experience rather than a dreary chore.
In addition to the diabetes-suitable recipes there’s also a wealth of diabetes-related information, everything from symptoms, diagnosis and blood sugar control to alternative sweetener information and nutritional therapy.
All of the recipes feature complete nutritional analyses, making it easy to follow diabetes guidelines and recommendations at every meal of the day and every occasion.
Whatever other measures you may take to manage your diabetes, the bedrock of your treatment is to manage your diet. These delicious, easy-to- prepare recipes will provide you with a healthy and economical way to start you on your path.
When I got a chance to review this cookbook I jumped to it, because at the time I was 32 weeks pregnant and diagnosed with gestational diabetes. This diagnoses got me by surprise because I was eating pretty healthy throughout this pregnancy and I started it with a healthy weight, exercising on regular basis and not to mention no history of diabetes or gestational diabetes in the family. So when opportunity came I was super interested in this cookbook just because I wanted to cook healthy, yummy meals for the baby and myself and not eat the wrong things that could harm either one of us.
In this cookbook I soon found easy to make, delicious recipes that are perfect not only when you have diabetes, but for everyone. My family enjoyed them even though they didn’t have to go trough any dietary restrictions. We found yummy recipes from breakfast, lunch, dinner and some super yummy desserts everyone enjoyed.
I also enjoyed reading all of the useful information about diabetes and I love that each recipe comes with the nutrients per serving report and the very important food choices per serving. And I’m sure if you have any type of diabetes you know how important tracking the food choices is and how easy it is to go over and not know what is the right amount to eat. With these recipes you have it at the side of each recipe and it makes the cooking/eating that much easier and more enjoyable.
So far we tried:
- Cream of Mushroom Soup
- Carrot and Red Lentil Soup
- Hard-Cooked Eggs with Spinach
- Chicken and Apple Salad
- Pasta and Broccoli au Gratin
- Stir-Fried Shrimp with Ginger
- Herb Frittata
- Old-Fashioned Ginger and Honey Cookies
- Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
We continue to try new recipes daily and enjoy them a lot. Now that I’m not pregnant anymore and my gestational diabetes is completely gone I still find the recipes in this cookbook easy, yummy and delicious for my whole family.
I know that you will enjoy these recipes as well whether you are diabetic or not!
