Better Homes and Gardens has a new book filled with lots of easy recipes for anyone facing a diabetes diagnosis or one who cooks for a diabetic.
“The Ultimate Diabetes Cookbook” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $19.95, softcover) has more than 400 recipes, including a whole section on meals for two, and chapters on salads, soups, sandwiches, desserts and family dinner entrees.
The recipes are easy to make and use affordable ingredients available in most grocery stores. Each recipe contains complete nutritional information and diabetic exchanges.
The dishes make use of powerful flavors from fresh herbs and spices, instead of relying on fat and salt for flavor.
Try out this recipe for catfish, which can be made just as easily with sole or tilapia.
