From the Back Cover:

Everyone is too busy to cook at home and eat right. Right? No! Linda Gassenheimer has taken the work out of cooking for you.

Description from the Publisher:

An all-in-one mealtime organizer, planner, and healthy, low-carb cookbook.

Quick & Easy Low Carb Cooking for People with Diabetes deals with two major issues— how to make simple, quick, healthy, lowcarb meals and how to bring variety to the table. Designed for simplicity, it is divided into three sections—Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner—and also includes a week-at-aglance meal plan chart with selections that readers can mix and match to make a variety of menu options. Each recipe in this comprehensive planner features a shopping list, a menu, substitutions, and a countdown to get all the dishes on the table at the same time.

Sections include Breakfast: Eggs, Non Egg, Non Dairy; Lunch: Salads, Sandwiches, Soups; Dinner: Poultry, Beef, Pork, Seafood, Veal.

Recipes include:

  • Nutty Cinnamon French Toast
  • Swiss Omelette
  • Shrimp and Black- Eyed Pea Salad

Editorial Review From Diabetic Gourmet Magazine:

Mix 'n Match Meals In Minutes For People With Diabetes, ©2003 by Linda Gassenheimer, is a new book with an added bonus: All servings are for one or two people! This is a feature too often neglected in the cookbook publishing venue, and I'm glad to see more books coming into the market which recognize the needs of singles, seniors and empty-nesters.

Mix 'n Match Meals In Minutes For People With Diabetes is organized into three major sections - breakfasts, lunches and dinners. There's also a handy "Month of Meals at a Glance," offered in a calendar chart format, right up front at the beginning of the book. Each day gives the reader suggestions for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and includes the page number for each recipe. You won't have to go far to find the complete nutritional analysis along with the Exchanges and portion size (frequently omitted in many cookbooks) for each recipe, either. They're conveniently located right on the same page with the recipe, just where you'd expect to find them.

Author Linda Gassenheimer is a syndicated food columnist, radio host, author and chef who has an impressive list of cookbooks to her credit. She's probably best known for her best-selling low-carb cookbook and nationally syndicated newspaper column, "Dinner In Minutes." And here's what I especially like about Mix 'n Match Meals In Minutes For People With Diabetes: It's a blueprint for people looking to eat both deliciously and healthfully -- whether they have diabetes or not! The recipes are low in carbs, which is vital to folks with diabetes who work so hard to keep their blood glucose under control.

I also like the variety of nontraditional breakfast, sandwich/lunch, and dinner suggestions, such as a Basque Red Pepper Frittata served with a bowl of Oatmeal, or a Tomato-Cheese Melt and Bran Cereal served up with a Blueberry Smoothie. How about biting into a Toasted Turkey Sandwich accompanied by a side of Bran Cereal for breakfast? Perhaps you'd like to try a Neapolitan Pizza with a fresh Plum for lunch. Or, how about a Steak and Portobello Mushroom Sandwich with a cup of Sliced Mango? A tasty dinner choice might be Southwestern Chicken topped with Salsa and a Tortilla Salad on the side. End the meal with fresh Spiced Berries topped with a balsamic sauce and your meal is complete. You're limited only by your personal taste and sense of culinary adventure.

In addition to the creative recipes and menu plans, the addition of a Staples List (ingredients you normally have on hand) and a Shopping List is another plus included with each recipe. Each meal has a simple countdown plan to get all the dishes on the table at the same time, and all menus have between 45 and 75 grams of carbohydrate so you won't need to count or plan, just shop, stir and serve.

Give yourself, favorite single or couple a copy of this delightful and informative cookbook as a treat. Mix 'n Match Meals In Minutes For People With Diabetes is another American Diabetes Association publication which I heartily recommend.
