Cookbook Offers Delicious, Nutritious Choices
(NAPSA) - Eating a healthier diet can be delicious.
For more than a decade, Holly Clegg has shown people how in her "Trim & Terrific" cookbooks. Now, in partnership with the American Diabetes Association, she has created "Holly Clegg's Trim & Terrific Diabetic Cooking: Over 200 Recipes That Can Be On Your Table In 30 Minutes Or Less" (American Diabetes Association).
The new book is filled with more than 200 delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare recipes, ideal for people with diabetes as well as anyone looking to stay healthy and feel great.
The book includes great-tasting recipes for old favorites, such as Chicken Pot Pie, Corn Chowder and Banana Blueberry Muffins.
Here's a savory, quick and healthy recipe from her book:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 pound peeled, raw, medium shrimp
- 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped Roma tomatoes
- 1 (16-ounce) can great northern or navy beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
- Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Saute the asparagus and garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add the shrimp and saute for 3-4 minutes or until the shrimp just starts to turn pink. Add the tomatoes and beans and cook for another 3 minutes or until the tomatoes are softened.
In a small bowl, combine the chicken broth and cornstarch. Stir into the skillet and cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring frequently. Add the basil and salt and pepper (if using).
