From Publishers Weekly
Hughes, author of cookbooks health-minded (The 1200-Calory-A-Day Menu Cookbook) and otherwise (The New Chili Cuisine) pulls off a challenging trick in her latest, devising more than 100 tasty recipes with only four ingredients that also satisfy the American Diabetes Association's dietary guidelines. When limiting ingredients, the first casualty is depth of flavor, but Hughes employs a variety of tricks to correct this, like lemon zest in Greek Chicken with Lemon or onion soup mix in Homestyle Double-Onion Roast; elsewhere, packaged chili spice mix meets varying degrees of success. Bacon-Onion Potato Salad, which relies on reduced-fat Ranch dressing, is a rare miss, but the hits more than make up: Seared Chicken with Spicy Chipotle Cream Sauce, Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Cinnamon and Bourbon'd Filet Mignon-its rich sauce made with a deglaze of strong coffee-all beg for a turn. Nutritional and exchange information is supplied for each dish, and Hughes thoughtfully rounds out the book with useful all-purpose tips, like using low-carb vegetables to boost the volume of starchy dishes, adding instant coffee to deepen chocolate flavors and substituting equal amounts of cauliflower for potatoes. Those on a restricted diet will appreciate this wide range of simple dishes, as well as tips and tricks for enhancing everyday staples.

The title stated 4 Ingredients but the 4 ingredients are the core ones, not including spices i.e. salt, pepper, water were not included in the 4 ingredient count, so if you add those you have 7 or 8. Thank you Nancy Hughes, as this recipe book is a much needed one for anyone wanting to cook good healthy meals.
The recipes are delicious and real-life friendly. We do not have diabetes in our household, but want to put healthy nutritious foods on the table.
In my view, any recipe that passes diabetic guidelines will keep the appetite satisfied and fuel our bodies appropriately. But most importantly to us, these recipies appeal to our senses in making mealtime a pleasure with foods we want to enjoy again and again.
A concern I have when buying cookbooks is that I will have to go out and buy new appliances for ways to prepare the food or buy a hundred dollars worth of groceries I normally would not have bought. That was not the case here. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for easy, healthy meals.
