“What a beautiful, compelling book! The recipes are at once simple, sensual, and customized for people with diabetes.”— MOLLIE KATZEN, author of Moosewood Cookbook
Eating is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and comfort foods are designed to embrace and celebrate this pleasure. Unfortunately, many people assume a diagnosis of diabetes means the days of celebrating the foods they love are officially over.
That’s why the American Diabetes Association and author Robyn Webb created The American Diabetes Association Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook. It’s filled with favorite recipes customized to meet the dietary needs of people who have diabetes—while still keeping unbelievable flavor.
Sprinkled with helpful tips and time-saving advice, The American Diabetes Association Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook redefines classic American and International comfort food.
It is a “go-to” collection of recipes for families that need to cook nutritionally sound and diabetes-friendly meals that will satisfy everyone at the table. The days of cooking two meals to please everyone in the household are over.
For example, when it comes to fat—a taste enhancer that provides the flavor to favorite comfort foods—Robyn recommends not eliminating fat or using a diet substitute. Instead, she suggests using real olive oil and real butter, but in small amounts; just enough so that all the flavors meld together in a dish.
She also suggests shopping wisely for the best ingredients and for high-quality oils and European-style butter, which are so rich that only the tiniest amount is needed to make recipes sing.
With The American Diabetes Association Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook, you’ll find an outstanding collection of healthy, diabetes-friendly recipes based on American comfort food classics, lovingly arranged and beautifully photographed.
