Overview


Most diabetes cookbooks rely on artificial sweeteners or not-so-real substitutions to reduce calories, sugar, and fat, but often at the expense of flavor.

And absolutely nothing is artificial!

Recipes include such tempting dishes as Blanco Huevos Rancheros, Creole-Style Red Beans and Rice, Spa Chef Salad with Balsamic Tarragon Dressing, Beer-Brewed Sloppy Joes, Chicken Tortilla Soup with California Avocado, Sage Sweet Potato Frites, Fudgy Brownies, and more.

In addition to amazing recipes based on whole foods and real ingredients, The All-Natural Diabetes Cookbook is filled with sample meal plans, tips for cooking with natural ingredients, and a handy substitution chart for swapping out processed foods from favorite recipes.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Operating under the premise that "fresh is best," registered dietician Newgent offers a wealth of terrific healthy ideas for diners of all stripes. With an emphasis on the classics, Newgent offers ingenious tips to cut fat and cholesterol, like using silken tofu to emulsify the hollandaise sauce for her Eggs Benedict, or using cottage cheese in lieu of butter to keep lean burgers moist. She dispels the myth that healthy eating has to be bland, evidenced in her Tequila-Lime Chicken with Fettuccine in Creamy Jalapeno Sauce, Moroccan Turkey Burger and Beer-Brewed Sloppy Joes. Common dishes like Chef's Salad get a zesty burst of flavor from a tarragon-laced balsamic dressing, and a fingerling potato salad is dressed in a low-fat sour cream sauce loaded with dill, chives and Creole mustard. Newgent makes it easy to stick to one's diet, including advice on doubling many of the recipes as well as make-ahead tips, online resources and trivia. Diabetic exchange information is included for each dish, as well as a substitution guide for ingredients like sour cream, cheese and sugar. (Sept.)

Diabetes is one of the fastest-growing health problems facing the United States. Newgent, in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association, presents an innovative cookbook designed to provide diabetes-friendly recipes that emphasize fresh and organically grown produce. The author, a culinary nutritionist and consultant, defines "natural" ingredients as those that have been minimally processed, grown without antibiotics, contain no trans or hydrogenated fats, and are free of artificial or synthetic ingredients. Each recipe includes the diabetic exchanges and a detailed nutrition analysis. Mixed in with the recipes are lots of tips labeled as "Fresh Facts" or "Food Flairs." A wide variety of food styles are presented, ranging from Southern Black-Eyed Pea Salad to Vietnamese-Style Beef and Soba Noodle Soup. Even desserts are here, with such enticing options as Fudgy Brownies and New Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies. Highly recommended for all cooking collections.

I was taking a chance buying this book because I thought there might be strange natural ingredients in it. But it's all normal ingredients that I already use and love. And the recipes I've tried so far are outstanding AND quick! I don't have diabetes, but I bought this since my dad had it and I don't want to get it.

I purchased this book for my boyfriend who has diabetes. I didn't expect the recipes to be so good. I thought I would be cooking for him separately. But I am eating some of the recipes just for me, and I am hard to please. Some of my favorites are the middle eastern meatballs, curry chicken breast salad, tequila lime chicken with spinach fettuccine, and the meatloaf. I love all the salads I've tried so far. The tips in the really helpful too. Thanks.

I’m always happy to eat a recipe from this newest edition of The All-Natural Diabetes Cookbook by Jackie Newgent, RDN. For one, I want to stay healthy … I’m trying to prevent the big three: heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. And the recipes from this cookbook certainly fall into the category of helping with all of these. I love that I don’t need to eat vegetarian, but the author’s recipes help me get plenty of vegetables either way. Some of my favorites so far include Roasted Greek Eggplant with Feta, Cajun Grains, Farmers’ Market Mushroom Pizza, and Tequila-Lime Chicken and Spinach Fettuccine. As a bonus, I love the beautiful photos and the clean design of the book. I recommend this cookbook not just for people with diabetes, but for anyone wanting to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
