An Review, by Joan Price

From the first glance it's clear that this diabetes cookbook is different: the recipes are in large print. It's also different because each recipe makes one or two servings--no waste, no leftovers--for people with diabetes who are living alone or with one other person. No-Fuss Diabetes Recipes for 1 or 2 presents 125 recipes--both traditional and ethnically diverse--that "match good taste with good health" and don't require odd, hard-to-find ingredients. Each major section (breakfast, lunch, dinner) opens with 5 quick recipes that require no more than 8 ingredients and no more than 20 minutes to prepare. Most recipes are modifications of foods you've always liked: Huevos Rancheros, several types of muffins, Black Bean Burritos, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chocolate Pudding, Scallop Fettuccini. Some are more quirky: Blueberry Fruit Pizza (not pizza at all, but a breakfast item made with pita bread, fat-free cream cheese, apricot preserves, walnuts, and blueberries), Sweet Potato Lunch, Lentil Spaghetti, and Middle Eastern Muffin Burgers (ground beef, couscous, and applesauce). Nutritional breakdown includes calories, carbohydrate, protein, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and fiber.
