From Lara Rondinelli-Hamilton, RD, LDN, CDE, and Chef Jennifer Bucko Lamplough, Healthy Calendar Diabetic Cooking, 2nd edition
This dish is not only really flavorful but also beautiful. Serve them on skewers, in a lettuce cup or over brown rice for a main dish. They are easy and a huge hit at parties!
From Robyn Webb, The Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook
This may be short on ingredients, but three powerfully flavorful ingredients are all you need for a spectacular appetizer. The sweetness of the dates, crunch of the almond and the smoky bacon all come together into one fantastic mouthful.
From Barbara Seelig-Brown, The Stress Free Diabetes Kitchen
This recipe is quick, easy, nutritious and versatile and can be prepared a day or two ahead. The variety of toppings for your homemade Bruschetta allows guests to have it just the way they like!
From Nancy S. Hughes, 15-Minute Diabetic Meals
A “guy-pleaser” without the effort or heavy fat! Every bite is hearty and full-flavored. This dish is great year-round casual entertaining, buffet style or coffee table style. Great for game-day watching, too!
From Corinne Trang, Asian Flavors Diabetes Cookbook
This is a colorful, festive, nutritious, delicious and perfect side for the holidays. It is also naturally gluten-free!
