Cooking for Special Diets


At one time or another, almost everyone has been on a special diet or is cooking for someone who is on one. This may be a permanent situation due to illnesses, such as heart disease or diabetes, or food allergies such as wheat, milk or eggs. Or it can be for the purpose of weight loss or cholesterol control. Trying to figure out how to adjust existing recipes or which new recipes to incorporate into you diet can be challenging.

By using the principles and recipes found in 30 Day Gourmet’s Big Book of Freezer Cooking, you will naturally eat fewer processed foods, fats, salt, and preservatives because you are in control of the ingredients in each recipe. You can easily boost your fiber, vitamin and mineral intake by planning ahead and freezing your foods! Substitutions are a snap, which makes cooking for special diets much easier when you freezer cook.
