Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

From the first glance it's clear that this diabetes cookbook is different: the recipes are in large print. It's also different because each recipe makes one or two servings--no waste, no leftovers--for people with diabetes who are living alone or with one other person. No-Fuss Diabetes Recipes for 1 or 2 presents 125 recipes--both traditional and ethnically diverse--that "match good taste with good health" and don't require odd, hard-to-find ingredients. Each major section (breakfast, lunch, dinner) opens with 5 quick recipes that require no more than 8 ingredients and no more than 20 minutes to prepare. Most recipes are modifications of foods you've always liked: Huevos Rancheros, several types of muffins, Black Bean Burritos, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chocolate Pudding, Scallop Fettuccini. Some are more quirky: Blueberry Fruit Pizza (not pizza at all, but a breakfast item made with pita bread, fat-free cream cheese, apricot preserves, walnuts, and blueberries), Sweet Potato Lunch, Lentil Spaghetti, and Middle Eastern Muffin Burgers (ground beef, couscous, and applesauce). Nutritional breakdown includes calories, carbohydrate, protein, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and fiber. --Joan Price

5.0 out of 5 stars No fuss Diabetic Recipes for 1 or 2 December 3, 1999
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book of recipes that taste so good and are easy to make for diabetics and others. The authors are registered dietitians and a nutrient analysis is provided for each of the recipes.
I bought the book for my mother-in-law who is diabetic and decided to keep it myself because the recipes are so good and so easy.
It also has a section to help diabetics with planning their meals to meet their meal plan.
I am a second year dietetic intern who will definitely recommend this book for my clients when I begin practicing in May 2000.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily lives up to its name. August 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am so pleased to have found this book. Type II runs in our family, and I'm trying to prevent it, by being careful about carbs, and balancing them with protein. All the balancing work is done for you. Great to find a cookbook with easy recipes that taste good, and you won't have to eat it all week! It was just what I had been looking for. I've only had it a few days, and have already tried several recipes. And these easy recipes make you realize how easy it could be to create your own variations. As a singleton, I'm glad things serve one or two, and it gives me a better idea of what a right-sized portion should be.

3.0 out of 5 stars high-carb/low-fat September 12, 2001
Format:Paperback
There seems to be two camps developing in the type 2
comunity, those who follow the traditional ADA high-carb
and low-fat way-of-life and those who follow the
low-carb, higher protein/fat way. This book is in the
high-carb group. Since I'm keeping my BG's 2hrs post
meal near the pre-meal targets (<120), the meals here
did not help me. Your milage may vary.

5.0 out of 5 stars For non-diabetics too September 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
These no-fuss recipes are great for ANYONE! You don't have to have diabetes to try these great tasting recipes. And it was such a pleasure to have easy to prepare recipes with amounts to serve one or two people-what a great way to try out a recipe! It is much simpler to double up or increase the serving size of recipes than to divide or reduce a recipe. I think this book should be re-titled to "No-fuss Recipes for One or Two"

5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential Cookbook for Diabetic "New" Cooks August 26, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"No-Fuss" is truly the best title for this cookbook. My 21 year old daughter, a college student, was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes recently. The dietician has her "counting carbs" and learning to identify slower-absorbing sources of carbohydrates. She is "new" to cooking, and these delicious recipes fit the trends of today's taste, ease of preparation, and are colorful and satisfying. We are hoping for "Book Two" to be out in a few years. Bravo to the writers!

5.0 out of 5 stars THANK YOU!!! This is a great recipe book April 6, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Finally, quick recipes! Some of the recipes you get in other books have way too much prep time or are too complicated to make. I think this is the best resource for someone with diabetes who has to watch sugar/carb intake. I hope more versions of this book comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite weeknight cookbooks January 10, 2010
Format:Paperback
I am not diabetic, nor is anyone in my family, but this is one of my favorite cookbooks. Almost every recipe I've tried from this book is cheap, fast, easy, healthy, and tasty. I'm a very adventurous eater, but when cooking for myself, the biggest problem tends to be the cost of picking up boxes and bottles of ingredients that might only end up being used once. Most of the ingredients called for in this book are things I already have in the pantry or freezer anyway.

This is one book that will stay on my shelf for years to come.
