We all need motivation to make mindful, positive food choices—and colorful, appetizing recipes with distinctive flavors can be a big help. I enjoy presenting the creative recipes of the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Their readers have specific dietary needs and often need resources to learn different ways of cooking and eating to promote and maintain good health—but, their recipes are always tempting and appealing to a general audience.
Recently, I collaborated with ADA on this Spanish-language cookbook, Controle su Diabetes una Receta a la Vez, or, Controlling Your Diabetes One Recipe at a Time.
As in other ADA cookbooks, recipes conform to all ADA nutritional guidelines. This book also includes several recipes for favorite Latin dishes and flavors, including the dish on the cover, “Camarones con Salsa de Tomate y Pimiento” and the recipe above, “Sopa de Elote.”
This “kitchen-friendly” book is wire-bound with an easel-back for easy recipe-reading while cooking. Co-sponsored by CanolaInfo, it also includes the recipe above, “Tortillas de Frijoles Negros con Salsa de Mango” and the one below, “Torta de Pollo.”
Along with food stylist Lisa Cherkasky, I have collaborated with the American Diabetes Association on several projects, including Robyn Webb’s award-winning Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook. I’m looking forward to more!
