Overview

For the millions of Americans living with diabetes, the Complete Diabetic Cookbook offers 2,000 low-sugar, high-flavor recipes, including over 1,000 desserts, that everyone in the family will love.

For a diabetic, dietary restrictions are a constant challenge. Author Mary Jane Finsand had been cooking two meals every night — one for her family and one for a special meal for her diabetic husband — when she decided there had to be a better solution. She began adapting her favorite recipes for a diabetic diet, and the result is this extraordinarily comprehensive cookbook of more than 2,000 recipes for every type of food imaginable.

 The 2,000 recipes—which range from Hungarian Goulash to Cheese Lasagna to Chocolate Almond Tart and Butterscotch Brownies—are healthy, high in fiber, and low in cholesterol, as well as being easy to prepare. Every recipe is accompanied by the exchange list values from the American Diabetes Association and the American Dietetic Association, meticulously calculated to be accurate for the diabetic. Additional nutritional values are also included, such as calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, sodium, and cholesterol.

Perfect for the whole family!

    Good Recipes but hard to find ingredients

    I picked this book up to get a fair amount of recipes to bake with and that I could use since I am diabetic. However, some of the recipes for baking call out for the sugar substitutes by their chemical name and not brand name. This makes the recipes useless. When you do search for the ingredients, they are hard to find in hard to find places.

    Aside from that, the book is well organized and there are plenty of recipes for soups and other meals that i have tried and found very good. So its not a total bust

    Book has lots and lots of recipes that's true, but the variety is rather poor. Not a lot of entree dishes, mostly beverages and desserts, which they are alike. I don't like the way the instructions are presented 'not very descriptive' and the ingredients that are found in them are rather special. Not a book a whole family could use. Most recipes are very very basic.
