by Phyllis Good
Review by Chef James
I was very pleasantly suprised at the variety and quality of the recipes in this book. It's premise is that you do not have to cook separately for someone with diabetes. Anyone will find these slow cooker recipes easy and tasty. The variety ranges from Chicken Cacciatore and Venison in Sauce to New England Baked Beans, Harvey Walbanger Cake and Curried Fruit.
A diet that's healthy for persons with diabetes is healthy for all the rest of us too! 'Fix-It and Forget-It Diabetic Cookbook' is packed with delicious recipes for everyone - including those who have to keep track of food exchanges, carbohydrates, sugars, calories and fats. This cookbook makes mealtime an occasion when everyone belongs.
Each recipe comes complete with its Exchange Value and with its Basic Nutritional Values. In addition, the book is full of Tips, as well as a Week of Menus. Published in cooperation with the American Diabetes Association.
Counting carbohydrates and working through food exchanges in order to deal with diabetes can be a time consuming activity, especially for the busy working person. This book contains slow-cooker recipes complete with exchange list values, and information on fat, calories, cholesterol, fiber, sugars, protein, and just about anything else you would want to know in order to prepare a nutritious meal that takes minimal time out of your busy schedule. Casseroles, steak, stews, vegetables, chicken, potatoes, wings, barbecue, soups, chowders, desserts, snacks, and beverages are all well represented with an excellent selection of each as well as many more items. One thing is for sure, these recipes don't sacrifice flavor in any way. The recipes include recipes like Chicken in Mushroom Gravy, Lemon-Garlic Chicken, Potatoes O'Brien, Apple Crisp, and Carrot Cake. Fix-It and Forget-It Diabetic Cookbook is an excellent cookbook not only for diabetics but for slow cooker fans of all types.
