FIX-IT AND ENJOY-IT DIABETIC COOKBOOK Stove-Top and Oven Recipes–for Everyone! by Phyllis Pellman Good with the American Diabetes Association

October 06, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
20.8 million Americans are living with diabetes. Those of us who have the disease—or who cook for someone with diabetes—face a daily cooking and eating challenge. And the dietary restrictions can be alienating during meals with family or friends.

The solution? FIX-IT AND ENJOY-IT DIABETIC COOKBOOK: Stove-Top and Oven Recipes–for Everyone! (Good Books; September 2007) by The New York Times bestselling author, Phyllis Pellman Good. This chock-full cookbook offers more than 500 recipes for stove-top and oven cooking, all appropriate for persons with diabetes. These dishes, with their reduced fats and carbs, are healthy for everyone. Submitted by home cooks from around the country, each recipe includes Prep Time and Cooking Time.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) teamed with Good on the book, adapting the recipes and fitting them into meal plans. Each recipe includes its “Exchange List Values” and its “Basic Nutritional Values” ? vital information for managing calorie, carb, fat, and sodium intake.

Phyllis Pellman Good is back with her signature approach to stress-free cooking. "These irresistible recipes have short lists of ingredients, which are readily available. And the instructions for making each recipe are clear and thorough. These recipes are for cooks who are short on time, and who may be short on confidence!" says Good.

Who can resist "Mexican Chicken Bake," "Barbecued Beef Strips," "Cranberry-Glazed Pork Roast," "Dried Cherry Salad," "Stir-Fried Broccoli," "Crusty Baked Potatoes," and "Frozen Fruit Slush"?

The book includes "A Week of Menus," Healthy Tips from the ADA, answers to The Ten Most Asked Questions About Diabetes, and a recommended Reading List from the ADA.

No more isolating persons with diabetes at mealtime. The recipes in FIX-IT AND ENJOY-IT DIABETIC RECIPES offer both great taste and nutritional value—and easy preparation—the Fix-It and Enjoy-It trademark

Good’s “Fix-It and Forget-It” series of slow-cooker cookbooks has sold more than 8 million copies. Fix-It and Enjoy-It Cookbook, the first book in her stove-top and oven series of cookbooks, has sold more than 500,000 copies since its release in April 2006.
