Worth Reading: DESIGNED FOR ONE!: 120 DIABETES-FRIENDLY DISHES JUST FOR YOU.

Having great-tasting, healthful meals doesn’t require cooking an entire feast. Culinary expert and best-selling author Nancy S. Hughes has spent 25 years developing recipes and teaching people how to cook for plenty…and how to cook for just one. Her latest book is entirely focused on the needs of cooking for one and serving yourself a great tasting meal every day of the week.

DESIGNED FOR ONE! 120 Diabetes-Friendly Dishes Just for You contains 120 budget-friendly recipes for dinner, including salads, sides (starchy and nonstarchy), and even desserts! Nancy guides readers through the process of shopping, storing, measuring, and preparing ingredients — including advice on how to pick out fresh ingredients such as asparagus, tomatoes, pork loin, avocados, and loose herbs without letting anything go to waste.

I wrote this book to provide both those living with diabetes and those just looking for healthier meals with easy-to-make recipes using everyday ingredients. No unwanted leftovers. No unnecessary work. Simple comfort for ONE!
 — Nancy S. Hughes

Many recipes include tips from the chef (“Freeze leftover canned beans by laying them in a thin layer in a resealable sandwich baggie.”) and there’s a “How To” section that brings all these tips and more together for readers. There’s even a “Two-For-One” chapter where Nancy shares many options for cooking larger amounts to repurpose into other recipes and uses. Nancy draws on her previous books such as The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook and Two-Step Diabetes Cookbook to ensure these recipes are simple, economical, and rich with flavor. Highlights include:

  • Mediterranean Unstuffed Peppers
  • Red Pepper-Mushroom Skillet Pizza
  • Ham, Pepper, and Pineapple Broiler Packet
  • Italian Crusted Cod and Spinach
  • Mexican Shrimp with Lime
  • Pork and Avaocado-Lime Wrap
  • Pan-Roasted Salmon with Mango Chutney
  • Sweet Tart Raspberry Phyllo Bites
  • Frozen Banana-Pecan Sandwiches
