Most home cooks have four or five go-to dishes they love to make. They may occasionally break out of routine and try new dishes, but they always end up coming back to the tried and true dishes they know and love. In The Perfect Diabetes Comfort Food Collection, Robyn Webb, author of the all-time best-selling Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook, focuses on nine favorite comfort foods and makes ten variations of each to give home cooks new, healthy twists on the meals they crave. These all-American classics include: lasagna, meatloaf, burgers, stir-frys, tacos, main dish stews and soups, entree salads, chicken, and pasta.
Along with nearly 100 classic recipes, this book also features a meal-planning section that helps readers match a favorite comfort food dish with classic sides to create hundreds of complete, nutritionally balanced meals designed to help control blood glucose levels and promote heart health.
The Perfect Diabetes Comfort Food Collection combines the elements everyone loves—healthy comfort foods that are prepared quickly and come out tasting amazing.
Delicious and healthy meals for everyone!
In this book, Robyn presents you with nine simple techniques that can evolve into infinite possibilities. I love the idea of learning one master recipe that you can then customize to your liking and to the ingredients that you have on hand. This book is appropriate for those on a diabetes friendly plan, but it is also a blueprint for those who may want to incorporate healthier meals without comprising flavor. Some of the recipes in the book have become part of my rotating repertoire. The one recipe I make over and over again is the chicken and rice soup. It is savory, flavorful, and satisfying–just what you need when you are feeling under the weather. Tacos are one of my favorite things to make, and this book has a whole chapter dedicated just to tacos! I often make the shrimp tacos, and the blacked fish tacos with pineapple salsa.
