Some Favorite Diabetic Recipes Books
The Diabetic Dessert Cookbook
I love The Diabetic Dessert Cookbook. It's a wonderful diabetic recipes dessert book. When the author's husband was diagnosed with diabetes, nutrition consultant Colleen Howard took to her kitchen, concocting 117 tempting treats which her husband had assumed were forbidden, including candies, cakes, cookies, pies, fudge, and fruit desserts. All recipes comply with guidelines established by the American Diabetes Association. Out of all the diabetic recipes books for desserts, this is a personal favorite. I give two thumbs up, for sure. Mostly because of my sweet tooth!
The following is a recipe from this cookbook.
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook
I guess you can say that I'm addicted to easy recipes. :) So, Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook is a favorite of many. Delicious Meals Are as Easy as 1-2-3 with Carbohydrate Choices! If you have diabetes, you don’t have to give up the meals you love or food that tastes great! Betty Crocker and the International Diabetes Center have teamed up to create this book to help you eat well and feel your best. You’ll find: 140 delicious recipes created using the most current diabetes guidelines, including Italian Shrimp Stir-Fry, Cranberry-Orange Scones, Fettuccine with Asparagus and Key Lime Bars. You will also find real-life advice from people with diabetes who deal with diabetes day in, day out and share their great ideas on planning, preparing and enjoying these recipes. Again, one of the many great diabetic recipes books.
The recipes are great, especially the desserts. The Carbohydrate Choices is a great counting device. I find it simpler to keep track of what I'm eating with the carbohydrate choices counter. I'm not the only one who gives these recipes a thumbs up. People in my family who aren't diabetic approve too! Lauren G. From San Francisco California.
I'm a snacker by nature. I have to really limit my snacking to make sure that I'm going to still be hungry for dinner. :) This is a wonderful book with an array of snack options AND some snacks can double as a meal. It makes it perfect for us busy people. If you are like me then the Snack Attack! Guilt-Free Treats For Healthy Munching is the perfect book to keep on hand. There are more than 150 snack recipes for you to eat right—and many of the recipes are healthy versions of old-time favorites! Every recipe contains complete nutrition facts, preparation times, and easy-to-follow instructions. And each recipe is low in fat, saturated fat, and sodium. You can choose from tasty and healthy snack recipes, such as Teriyaki Chicken Bites, Con Queso Bean Dip, Popcorn Crunch, Hawaiian Meatballs, and many more healthy versions of old favorites!
This book has delicious snacks, most simple and some worth fixing. I recommend this book for any diabetic. Carla Tucker, New York.
American Diabetes Association Guide to Healthy Restaurant Eating
With families becoming more and more busy. Quick and easy meal times are becoming a must. Most days its best to try and cook, but if you are out and about and stuck with hunger pains, then you need to carry this book with you. I love that it has all the favorites in here. American Diabetes Association Guide to Healthy Restaurant Eating breaks down all the nutritional analysis. I origianlly tried American Diabetes Association Guide to Healthy Fast Food Eating, but found it not to have as many choices. The Guide to Healhty Restaurant Eating has more than 5,000 menu items from more than 60 chain restaurants. Two Thumbs Up! :)
Lickety-Split Diabetic Meals: Save Time, Eat Smart, Lose Weight came highly recommended by one of our readers. This cookbook helps those with diabetes in their quest for a healthier, happier life. All the recipes meet ADA's guidelines for nutrition and taste, and include the ADA's Choose Your Foods Exchange/Choices list.
I really like this one,it is a 3 in 1 book;cookbook, meal planner, and self management guide. Recipes are quick, easy, and taste great!! Vicki McEntyre, Jacksonville Florida.
Your First Year With Diabetes is a great book chalked full of information. The most frightening moment for most people with diabetes is when they are first diagnosed. They are filled with questions: What can I eat? What should I do? Is there a plan for me to follow? While some people get a plan from their doctor, most people do not. Your First Year with Diabetes is the plan for everyone. It walks you step-by-step through a first-30-days survival plan, then shows a month-by-month program for what comes next. Everything from a basic explanation of diabetes, what you can eat right away, and instructions on how to check glucose to a deeper knowledge about diabetes nutrition, avoiding complications, and better management.
I found a great Diabetic cookbook. Recipes are fast (some lessthan 15 minutes), easy and nutritional. You can use this for everyone in the family to enjoy. Helps you calculate your family fruit quota!! Judith, Ocala Florida
