‘Six O’Clock Scramble Meal Planner’

    We all know we need to eat healthier foods, but pulling together a nutritious meal can sometimes feel like a daunting task. Often we run out of time and ideas at the end of the day and resort to unhealthy fast food or calorie-laden frozen meals.
    A new cookbook from the American Diabetes Association can help. In “The Six O’Clock Scramble Meal Planner,” author Aviva Goldfarb shows how to plan easy, healthy meals and shop for ingredients one week at a time.
    The cookbook is organized into 32 weekly meal plans, arranged by season, with main dishes and sides. Readers will find 160 diabetes-friendly recipes that require 30 minutes or less to prepare, plus a wealth of do-head tips and flavor boosters.
    Nutritional information accompanies each recipe and many have instructions for adapting the recipe for slow cooking.
    The recipes are not only for diabetics; everyone wanting to improve their health without sacrificing flavor and variety will benefit from this cookbook.
    The Mississippi State Department of Health estimated in 2014 that 13 percent of Mississippi adults have diabetes, the second-highest diabetes rate in the country. Diabetes is an incurable disease that can result in disability, hospitalization and the inability to work. Self-care practices, including adopting better eating habits, are important in helping sufferers stay healthy and manage the disease.
   During American Diabetes Month in November, the American Diabetes Association shares information and stories of people living with the disease. For more information, visit the website at www.Diabetes.org.
