“While the diagnosis of diabetes is scary to most, the information in this book aims to educate the reader and provides an easy-button approach to eating. The information given is comparable to having your own personal dietician to guide you step by step through meal prepping and why it is important. Taste isn’t lost in the included recipes. There is something for everyone. This book is a wealth of knowledge to the diabetic patient, as well as providers looking for a place to educate patients in layperson’s terms.” —Jill Richmond, RN

“This mix-and-match concept by an expert diabetic nutritionist is easy to follow with great recipes and advice for shopping and planning that is doable for those with a busy lifestyle. It is valuable for all of us whether we have—or are trying to prevent—diabetes.” —Ann Shalley, MD

“How often do our good intentions to eat healthy meet defeat when dinner time arrives, and only bad choices or takeout are options? Well, the new Meal Prep Diabetes Cookbook, written by dietitian Kathy Birkett, is here to rescue us. The cookbook provides four examples of how to devote a few weekend hours to prepping food with an every-night payoff in the coming week. The recipes are tasty and also prompt us to try new ingredients. Who knew making a cauliflower pizza crust was so easy—and tasty? Another bonus: a handy guide to how long you can refrigerate various food items, when it’s time to pop them in the freezer, and when a timely thaw will keep them tasting fresh. An excellent resource for any busy cook who wants to prepare healthy food for the family.” —Linda Lovely, mystery author

“Simple and satisfying, Meal Prep Diabetes Cookbook takes the confusion out of cooking meals for people managing diabetes and anyone else who wants to eat healthy. Like her first cookbook, One-Pot Diabetes Cookbook, Kathy has created tasty dishes that are easy to prepare and cook. A must-have for your cookbook collection!” —Nancy Farrar, APRN
