Thankfully there are books like The Budget-Friendly Fresh and Local Diabetes Cookbook to help you out on both counts. Don’t let the fact that Chef Charles Mattocks is a diabetic and that the book has “diabetes” in the title keep you from enjoying what it has to offer. This book is really for everyone. What he has done is shown how you can still have delicious food that is not going to break the bank but will give you the nutrients you need in portions that are feeling and delicious.
He has taken a lot of the work on himself by telling you not just what is in each dish but what are some great alternatives that can be used as well.
Chef Mattocks knows how difficult it can be to eat right and take care of yourself, so with the various menu ideas he gives you in this cookbook he makes it a little easier. He has done his part to help. The rest of the work is up to you.
My only real complaint relates to the serving sizes. They are extremely small in some cases (ie) 1/2 cup servings for soup and stews so if you are using the nutritional information to count calories or carbs you must keep the listed serving sizes in mind. Now obviously everyone should keep their serving sizes in mind just in general but a 1/2 cup of soup just seems very unrealistic to me.
