QUICK START GUIDE

Whether you’re new to managing diabetes for yourself or a family member, or are just looking for some new recipes to incorporate into your existing health management regimen,
The Diabetes Cookbook for Two
can help with great tips, ideas, and recipes. Following are five key reasons you’ll be glad you read on:

Simplify your life.

Managing diabetes can feel overwhelming, and the time spent in self-care—checking blood sugar, taking medications, being active, and deciding what to eat—can feel like a part-time job! This cookbook will help simplify your life and make managing your diabetes easier with its wholesome recipes perfectly portioned for two people. Gone is the guesswork when cooking for two—your dishes will turn out just right and you’ll enjoy eating what’s good for you.

Easy and delicious low-carbohydrate recipes.

Each recipe fits into a low-carb diabetic meal plan and includes a complete nutritional analysis. The recipes have
no more than 45 grams of carbohydrate per serving
. They are also low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, and high in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, with an emphasis on complex carbohydrates and lean proteins.

Ban the bland and enjoy your classic favorites revamped.

Having diabetes doesn’t mean you have to eat bland food or give up your favorite dishes. Find comfort classics like Mock Mac and Cheese (
here
), Eggplant Lasagna (
here
), and Lazy Turkey Potpie (
here
), redone to be diabetic friendly, portioned for two, and bursting with flavor.

No-stress-added, easy-to-make recipes.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming, and you won’t need to go to cooking school to become a chef. The recipes in this book are easy to make and contain commonly available ingredients.

Useful information.

Each recipe contains descriptors with helpful tips, ingredient variations, and serving suggestions. You will learn something with each recipe that can help you become more knowledgeable about the nutrients in the foods you eat. You can then make healthier food decisions at home and in other situations such as eating out or when enjoying family favorites.
