Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Scalpi, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, revises her 2002 guide with 100 new recipes and updated medical information. She discusses types of diabetes, food labels, the Glycemic Index, and shopping. Recipes, which are written for beginners and offer nutritional information (with PCF Ratio), include Southwest Black Bean Burgers, Asian-Style Fish Cakes (which are made with catfish, banana pepper, ginger, lemon juice, and garlic cloves), and Key Lime Pie (using Splenda instead of sugar). Scalpi also lists recommended websites, online sources for ingredients and equipment, and exchange lists. Highly recommended for its variety of flavorful recipes and useful resources.

I just finished reading the Everything Diabetes Cookbook 2nd edition. The author has done a great job of covering the basics about diabetes in a reassuring voice. If you or someone you love has diabetes then this is the cookbook for you. There are so many recipe choices that taste so yummy that your entire family will want to eat these dishes too!

This book is great - easy to read, easy to apply, user-friendly, and informational in tone. The facts and tips about diabetes are easy to process, not overwhelming. Recommended for someone recently diagnosed with diabetes and searching for some solid basic facts, recipes and recommendations.
