Did you know that one in three Americans are currently living with diabetes or are pre-diabetic? You might be diabetic, or pre-diabetic and not even know it. I have been diabetic for 20 years, and initially, it is daunting, even overwhelming, to try to figure out what to eat, what not to eat, and how much to eat?
For me, the key is to eating small meals more frequently — I eat about six times a day — to keep blood sugar on an even keel. For those of you who are starting new, or are now finding yourselves caring for someone who is diabetic, The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook is a simple, easy-to-follow recipe book by Nancy S. Hughes, author of 18 top-selling cookbooks.
Novice chefs will learn how to create nutrient-rich meals with just a few basic ingredients, allowing you to minimize your time in the kitchen. It also challenges the idea that lots of ingredients and extensive preparation make a more nourishing and tastier meal.
Nancy has included 160 recipes, both new and reinvented, using popular ingredients like Sriracha and quinoa, while incorporating recent advances in cooking science to demonstrate that new cooks and experienced chefs alike can pull together a quick, easy and healthy meal in minutes. The book includes a section highlighting vegetarian and meatless dishes, as well as over 200 tricks, tips and time savers for every meal of the day.
The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook is available from Amazon.
