Outline ReviewGetting dinner on the table is tough enough. For the millions of Americans who have diabetes or have family members with diabetes, preparing healthy and appealing meals can be nightmare. To the rescue: The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes by the American Diabetes Association and the American Dietetic Association, two of the nation's leading sources for nutrition and health information. The authors chose the best recipes from four previous diabetic cookbooks and updated them using the newest and healthiest ingredients and the latest nutrition recommendations for people with diabetes.
The book contains 13 chapters and more than 400 easy recipes for everything from Miniature Crab Puffs and Turkey Sausage with Peppers and Onions to Moo Shu Pork and New York Cheesecake. The authors cover all the basics of a diabetic diet and lifestyle, including exercise, carbohydrate counting, and food-exchange lists. Each recipe is also accompanied by both nutrition facts and food exchanges. The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes proves that diabetics don't have to live on carrot sticks, rice cakes, and sugar-free yogurt to keep glucose levels in check. --Ellen Albertson

The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes Jan 14, 2005
A wonder cookbook with lots of good, easy to prepare recipes that help me stick to the diabetic diet plan my registered dietitian prepared for me. My family also enjoys many of the recipes even though they are not diabetic.
The only complaint I have about the book is the index. I use the index frequently when I am looking for a specific recipe. This book does not put letters of the alphabet in the index as a location aid in finding a listing.
Me and My Diabetes Sep 27, 2000
I have type 2 Diabetes. My Doctor has told me that my Diabetes has gotten to the point that I will need insulin. He tells me that I need to get more exercise. I do my best. To my scale I am losing weight; but to his scale I am the same or I weigh even more. This Cookbook to me will help me eat what I should eat and the amont I should be eating.
THE TRUTH ABOUT SUGAR Feb 23, 2000
As a Registered Dietitian, for more than 20 years, and Certified Diabetes Educator, for over 10 years, I was so distressed by reviewer comments regarding sugar in the diabetic diet, that I am taking time to respond.
Since 1994 dietitians and educators working with people with diabetes have been trying to get the truth out about sucrose (sugar). Sugar is not a forbidden food for people with diabetes.
Scientific evidence from more than a dozen studies has shown that the use of sugar does impair blood glucose control in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Sugar and foods containing sugar must be substituted for other carbohydrates, gram for gram, and not simply added to the diabetes meal plan. In making such substitutions, the nutrient content of concentrated sweets and sucrose-containing foods, as well as the presence of other nutrients frequently ingested with sucrose, such as fat, must be considered.
The bottom line for people with diabetes is to check the total carbohydrate in a recipe or on a food label and work that into their diabetes meal plan. Because there are individual variations in blood glucose response, self-monitoring is an important part of diabetes control.
Great Cookbook Period Feb 20, 2000
Great food for the whole family. Almost everthing I eat comes from this book. (I am not taking drugs - just diet and exercise.) It has helped me lower my blood sugar 40 points in three months and so far I have not run out of new things to try. Even friends who do not have diabetes have bought the book, just for the reduced fat/low sugar/low salt recipes. It is a hit in my house.
