American Diabetes Association Complete Month Of Meals Collection

Posted on February 10, 2018 in 2018 Valentine's Day Gift Guide

This is a great cookbook, for anyone, not only those with diabetes.  My mother, age 70, has diabetes, so I gave the book to her, and she’s been cooking up a storm.  Complete Month Of Meals Collection is simply easy to follow, and a great book.  My mother loves it.

The price is great, and the food comes out delicious every time.  This hard cover book, will give my mom great recipes, for diabetics, for years to come.

There’s an entire section dedicated to desserts, that diabetics can eat, with no sugar problem.  This couldn’t be more special.  And, there is a group of drinks, too.  The smoothies are my favorite!

The American Diabetes Association has an entire line up of cookbooks, and books, to choose from.  Check out the tabs, at the top of the page, to find out more.

Check out the wonder meals for breakfast, lunch, & dinner, and all the other wonderful recipes.  This is one book that you will love.

I have my mom, mother in law, father in law, and husband’s aunt, all close to me with Diabetes.  So when I was offered to write a post for this wonderful cookbook, I took the offer.

The Perfect Diabetes Comfort Food Collection, is a good book to have, even if you don’t have Diabetes.  It’ll help you eat right.  And, the foods in the cookbook are easy to make, and are delish.

First, let’s go over some of the recipes in The Perfect Diabetes Comfort Food Collection:

These are all great comfort foods, and are delicious.  My daughter, age 19, made a recipe for my mom, and my mom loved it.  Here’s the recipe:

SHRIMP AND FRUIT TACOS

Serves: 4 | Serving size: 1 taco

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 5 minutes

Both mangoes and avocados have the same indicator of ripeness; press the skin on each and it should give just a little. Look for well-rounded mangoes that feel heavy for their size. While most mangoes have a beautiful red and yellow skin color, color isn’t always an indicator of ripeness as some ripe mangoes retain quite a bit of green color on the outside. Better to choose large mangoes that yield a lot of fruit. In addition to pressing on the skin of an avocado, flick off the stem end. Underneath you should find the color green indicating your avocado is ready to eat.

SEASONING MIX

2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 1/4 pounds large peeled and deveined shrimp

1 tablespoon olive oil

Juice of 1 lime

8 (6-inch) corn tortillas

1 large mango, peeled and cut into thin slices

1 small avocado, peeled and cut into thin slices

GARNISHES

1 cup shredded romaine lettuce

3 fresh medium tomatoes, cored and diced

1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt or nonfat sour cream

Combine the ingredients in the seasoning mix and add the shrimp. Toss to coat.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the shrimp and sauté for 4–5 minutes until shrimp are cooked through. Sprinkle with lime juice and remove from the heat.

Heat the corn tortillas one at a time in an ungreased skillet for 30 seconds per side.

To serve, add the shrimp to the tortilla and top with mango and avocado. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, and yogurt or sour cream.
