Michelle Berriedale-Johnson’s “Delicious Diabetes Cooking for One or Two People” is comprised of flavor-packed, healthful recipes designed not just for diabetics, but for anyone desiring to make better choices about just what and how much they are eating. Although the recipes are written and nutritionally analyzed for preparing meals for one to two people, they can be easily adapted to accommodate more. From soups and starters, to entrees, baked good and desserts, this cookbook offers creative and appetizing ideas for managing meal plans suitable for diabetics and, with some modifications, for those challenged with other dietary restrictions “such as gluten or dairy allergies.” With the recipes comprised of readily accessible, “real” food, you’ll likely want to make these recipes again and again and be inspired to add a few twists of your own according to preference, or what happens to be in season. If there ever was good time to try some new diabetic recipes, this would surely be it, as our farmers’ markets and roadside stands are re-emerging with many of our warm weather farm-to-table fruit and vegetable favorites.
