Tasty Food and Healthy Eating Come Together in New Cookbook From the Mr. Food Test Kitchen
549-1500 ext. 2139
Enjoying great-tasting food while maintaining one’s health seems like a never-ending challenge, especially for those who have been diagnosed with diabetes. But with MR. FOOD TEST KITCHEN’S HELLO TASTE, GOODBYE GUILT!, the solution has never been easier. The Mr. Food Test Kitchen has been delivering quick and easy recipes, cooking tips, and kitchen techniques to television audiences for more than 30 years and they have teamed up once again with the American Diabetes Association for their fifth project together.
With more than 150 flavor-packed recipes (without all the guilt we may expect)—all tested, tweaked, and then tested again, and each with complete nutritional information and exchanges/food choices—MR. FOOD TEST KITCHEN’S HELLO TASTE, GOODBYE GUILT! offers solutions for every meal, in a quick and easy style, from Eye-Opening Breakfasts and Simply Appetizers to Sensational Salads, Hearty Beef & Pork, Guilt-Free Desserts, and more.
Written with the energy and fun style Mr. Food fans are familiar with, and those new to Mr. Food will love, HELLO TASTE, GOODBYE GUILT! also includes information on how to understand a nutrition facts label, as well as all-important portion control hints with a chart that references everyday items to help gauge portion size. For example, when in the grocery store or farmer’s market, pick up fruits or vegetables of different sizes—small, medium, and large—and guesstimate their weight. Then weigh them on the store’s scale to see how close that guess was. At home, pour one serving of low-fat milk, for example, into a measuring cup and then into a favorite drinking glass. Note how full the glass is, and then next time pouring a proper serving will be easier. You can use household items to determine other serving measures; for example: 1 cup of broccoli is equivalent to the size of a light bulb ; a medium potato is the size of a computer mouse.
Throughout the book there are a variety of serving suggestions and Mr. Food Test Kitchen Hints & Tips to accompany the delicious recipes, such as an easy way to fill deviled eggs or the best way to roast peppers.
Here are just a few of the great-tasting, diabetes-friendly recipes you’ll enjoy—all of which meet the American Diabetes Association’s nutritional standards for people with diabetes:
Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes—these taste decadent, but you get the healthy benefits of whole-wheat flour, peanut butter and bananas
Southern Peach Mini-Muffins—these mini muffins are perfectly portioned for a quick grab-and-go breakfast
Mean ‘n’ Lean Beef Stew—we bulk this up with lots of veggies, but you still get the hearty taste of stew
Bottomless Chicken Potpie—Potpie that fits a diabetic lifestyle? Yes!
Sweet ‘n’ Salty Raspberry Bars—this indulgent dessert satisfies two cravings at once
