Did you know that 1 in 3 Americans are currently living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and most people don’t even know it! I’m included in that number as a type 2 diabetic, but am a firm believer that I will reverse that and regain my life! With numbers like that, I’m sure you know of at least 1 person that has this condition. Unfortunately it’s a condition that runs in my family, as well as my husbands, so that means we’re very in tune and looking at teaching our girls about fitness and healthy eating.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has released a new updated Second Edition of Nancy S. Hughes’s cookbook “Simple, Quick and Delicious Recipes Using Just Four Ingredients or Less!” This super easy cookbook includes over 160 recipes that range from beverages to breakfast, dinner to desserts and all of the recipes meet the ADA’s nutritional standards.
Not only will you find great recipes, but there’s also a sidebar to each that has exchanges for people tracking their food intake. There’s also tips and extra info for each recipe, and a listing about kitchen tools.
Everyone can use this cookbook, although it’s geared towards those with diabetes, the recipes are healthy, and a quick prep for those with busy lives. Anyone can use this book and take advantage of the yummy recipes inside.
There’s a few different recipes I can’t wait to try like the Panko Ranch Chicken Strips and Extra Easy Meatballs. Check out one of my favorite recipes from the book below for a sneak peek of what you’ll find inside the book.
