Health Book Pick: The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook

book-coverAs we all press reset for the new year here is a great book to work with.

Simpler really is better, faster, and can be more delicious when every ingredient counts! Meal-planning and whole food cooking are all the rage in cookbooks today, but few come with the promise of simplifying your life and enriching your taste buds at the same time.

With 18 top-selling cookbooks and over 7,500 published recipes to her name, culinary consultant and diabetes-friendly-cooking expert Nancy S. Hughes teaches the novice chef how to create nutrient-rich meals with just a few basic ingredients, allowing readers to minimize their time in the kitchen. THE 4-INGREDIENT DIABETES COOKBOOK, 2nd Edition [Nov 2016, $18.95 US / $23.50 CAN] challenges the idea that lots of ingredients and extensive preparation make a more nourishing and tastier meal.

Nancy has included 160 recipes, both new and reinvented, using popular ingredients like Sriracha and quinoa, while incorporating recent advances in cooking science to demonstrate that new cooks and experienced chefs alike can pull together a quick, easy and healthy meal in minutes. The book includes a section highlighting vegetarian and meatless dishes, as well as over 200 tricks, tips and timesavers for every meal of the day.

1 in 3 Americans are currently living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Each recipe includes the American Diabetes Association’s approved meal exchanges and detailed nutrition information, while Nancy adds an arsenal of simple hacks to transform the neophyte cook into an amateur chef. Recipes include:

  • Double-Duty Banana Pancakes
  • Pork and Avocado Salad
  • Panko and Ranch Chicken Strips with Dipping Sauce
  • Sriracha Roasted Pork with Sweet Potatoes
  • Sirloin Hoagies
  • Fruit-Scoop Muffin Cobbler
  • Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Layered Pie

THE 4-INGREDIENT DIABETES COOKBOOK is a valuable tool for those managing their diabetes and anyone looking to have a healthier relationship with food. Starting with staples and easy-to-find, natural ingredients, the recipes are a real treat for all, even for those who aren’t living with diabetes.
