Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook
Recipes for Balanced Meals & Healthy Living
by Shelby Kinnaird & Simone Harounian
Diabetes-friendly recipes that practically cook themselves
Does this sound familiar?
You’re tired, you’ve had a stressful day, and you’re really tempted to swing by the drive-though or order takeout for dinner.
Your slow cooker can help you resist this temptation. With a tiny bit of planning and preparation, you can have a fully home-cooked meal ready and waiting at the end of the day.
You’re tired of having a messy kitchen to clean up after dinner.
Most of the recipes in this book can be cooked in one pot so clean-up is minimal.
You want to eat healthy, but you miss your favorite comfort foods.
Healthier versions of your favorite foods are easy to prepare in a slow cooker. How do Chicken Parmesan Meatballs grab you? Have you ever tried Upside-Down Shepherd’s Pie? You can also enjoy the flavors of chicken wings without all of the calories by making Firecracker Turkey Salad (and it’s teenager-approved!)
You don’t want to cook every single night.
The slow cooker is great for batch cooking. Cook once, then freeze leftovers for quick meals later.
