Mills provides suggested 7-day menu plans to make it easier to follow dietary restrictions and offers an abundance of clearcut advice in the book's opening pages about stocking a healthy pantry, eating sensibly without feeling deprived and smart substitutions for sugar and other ingredients.
Certain recipes are tagged as quick or high fiber or both which proves helpful and most recipes are in the moderate to complex range when it comes to number of ingredients and preparation time.
We miss any artwork or appealing photos, but suppose that Mills decided to devote the more than 600 pages of this heavy volume to information, recipes and tips.
Mills is clever at turning what she calls "ho-hum" ingredients such as chicken and green beans into meals such as Peanut Chicken with Green Beans that are worthy of serving to company.
"1,000 Diabetes Recipes" would be a welcome gift for any diabetic who enjoys food and cooking and there is certainly plenty of variety to appeal to all tastes.
Ms. Mills has provided the culinary community with a volume of recipes that are not only easy to create, but their simplicity in creation takes away all excuses from eating fresh with tasty, healthy recipes at one's fingertips.
One of the most important features of this newly released cookbook is the fact that Ms. Mills provides her readers with an education in nutrition that is easy to understand. She includes the carbohydrate and calorie counts, which allows those following a low-carb regime a great variety of choices to continue as a lifelong plan of healthy dietary habits and delicious nutrition with great flavors and ease of preparation. Her "7-Day 1,800 Calorie Menu" along with "A Dozen Menus for Special Days" provides her audience with great ways to stay focused on healthy, tasty eating. The visual cue for Food Measurements (xvi) is a unique way to "eyeball" quantity when measuring.
For those of us who are NOT diabetic, her recipes just make sense! The variety in this 1,000 recipe volume enables any cook to plan meals with ease.
Here are three examples of recipes found in the book:
Everyday granola (p. 6) - A household standard, so much fresher that the store-bought stuff! All the ingredients are easily accessible and can be found in most panties, and the ease of preparing this recipe makes it simple for all.Read more ›
