Overview

All 250 of the recipes in Diabetes Cooking for Everyone accommodate the dietary restrictions that accompany common diabetes complications by providing recipe variations for reducing fat and saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, protein, or carbohydrates. Plus, each recipe has a GI rating for optimal nutrition and a list of diabetic exchanges to facilitate meal planning. These truly delicious yet easy-to-make dishes address the health needs of everyone with diabetes and nourish the entire family, too.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Gelles, author of 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes (which won an IACP/Julia Child Cookbook Award), has a master's degree in food and nutrition and herself suffers from diabetes. Her knowledge of food, as well as her own experience with this disease, which affects 17 million Americans, enables her to provide nutritionally correct recipes for fellow diabetics. As she points out in her introduction, many patients within this population are faced with additional complications such as heart disease, hypertension and kidney problems; each carefully composed recipe, therefore, addresses the limitations imposed by these conditions. For instance, Shredded Pork with Garlic Sauce comes with suggestions for palatably reducing sodium, protein and fat when necessary. Diabetic exchanges are suggested, and menu ideas provided. Readers get a quick nutritional summary with each recipe, and a more complete breakdown at the back of the book. Ingredient lists are short, cooking procedures straightforward, portions small, and flavors satisfying. Creamy Portobello Mushroom Soup, Herbed Veal and Spinach Meat Loaf and Ginger Bread Pudding all prove that despite adherence to strict guidelines, there can still be real "pleasure to be found in eating" for all diabetics.

I hate a cookbook without photos. I am disappointed. I will try out the recipes but I am not expecting much. The nutrition information is located in back of the book not with the recipes.
