At last! This special cookbook puts flavor and choice back on the menu for people with diabetes and their families Betty Crocker, America’s most trusted friend in the kitchen, has teamed up with the International Diabetes Center (IDC)–one of the leading medical centers–to create an indispensable source of easy-to-make recipes and up-to-the-minute food and nutrition information for the growing numbers of people who have diabetes, more than 15 million of them. Here is the first cookbook to include recipes featuring Carbohydrate Choices–the new, simplified approach to meal planning recommended by the American Diabetes Association. For people who find diet exchanges too hard, too limiting or too much work, this new method is a real breakthrough. Each of the book’s 140 recipes shows the number of Carbohydrate Choices per serving, so that planning the rest of the meal is easy. From Old-Time Beef and Vegetable Stew to Creamy Vanilla-Caramel Cheesecake, the recipes are made with everyday ingredients, including sugar. No food groups or ingredients are left out, so there’s no need for anyone to feel deprived or restricted to a special diet. Food exchanges are also included, making it easy for those who still count calories. Betty Crocker’s Diabetes Cookbook is also packed with expert medical and nutrition tips from Dr. Richard Bergenstal, an endocrinologist and diabetes doctor, and two registered nurses–invaluable for the newly diagnosed as well as for those who have been coping with diabetes for years. Throughout the book, real-life advice from people who have diabetes offers inspiration and great ideas on dealing with this chronic disease. When it comes to eating and living with diabetes, people need guidance and advice they can trust.
4 Stars Betty Crocker’s Diabetes Cookbook: Everyday Meals, Easy as 1-2-3
This is a wonderful book and even if I don’t use the recipes word for word, it helps me convert/modify the recipes I use to cook meals when my mother who has Diabetes comes to visit.
5 Stars Helped my Dad lose some pounds
I bought this cookbook to help my father, who is a pre-diabetic, lose some extra pounds. My mother has been cooking from it pretty regularily and he has already lost over 20 pounds. They say the meals are pretty easy to prepare and taste pretty good.
5 Stars Excellent
This is the best book I have ever had and believe me I have had a lot of cook books.
5 Stars Lots of good recipies
This is a great cookbook for any one with diabetes or any one who has to prepare meals for some one who does. The book was in excellent condition and shipping was speedy.
5 Stars A Life Saver
My husband was recently diagnosed with diabetes; it came as surprise, because although it’s in his family history, he is only 25. We are making huge changes in our eating habits, and this cookbook has been incredibly helpful. Not only does it provide low-carb recipes, it’s also a valuable resource for information on diabetes itself. It includes a care chart, a glossary of terms associated with diabetes, a convenient list of 1 choice snacks, tips and recommendations from doctors and fellow diabetics, etc. For people just starting to learn about diabetes and its implications, we couldn’t have chosen a better resource. Highly recommended.
