A while back I got this book entitled “THE 4-INGREDIENT DIABETES COOKBOOK”, by NANCY S. HUGHES. Even though I have no diabetes, I know that many of my followers do, and many of them also have relatives or friends that unfortunately have to deal with this disease.
That is why I accepted that I would receive this book for its promotion, and thus many people can consider having it as an option when it comes to looking for cooking ideas. For this occasion I prepared a very simple yet delicious recipe, Almond quinoa with cranberries.
THE 4-INGREDIENT DIABETES COOKBOOK is a valuable tool for those managing their diabetes and anyone looking to have a healthier relationship with food. Starting with staples and easy-to-find, natural ingredients, the recipes are a real treat for all, even for those who aren’t living with diabetes.
