In addition to complete nutritional information for each dish, Clegg also offers dozens of “Terrific Tidbits” – helpful for the experienced cook and novice alike. For example, avocados can be made to ripen more quickly by placing them in a brown paper bag overnight; overripe bananas are perfect for banana bread – and can even be frozen until they’re used; and couscous is extra flavorful when cooked in chicken or beef broth.
Easy-to-read symbols quickly identify vegetarian recipes and those that are freezer-friendly, and Clegg also includes a “stock the pantry” section listing refrigerator, freezer, baking, pantry, and spice and seasoning staples, as well as an inventory of the ingredients needed to prepare the meals featured in the book.
“I don’t have diabetes myself, but from watching my grandmother I understand how important delicious, healthy eating is to people with diabetes,” writes Clegg.
