Too high in carbs for many diabetics May 19, 2004
This cookbook seems to focus on cutting down on fats and oils, but makes only a little attempt to cut down on carbs. (All carbs convert to sugar when digested, except for the fiber part which is not digested.) Most of these recipes would raise my blood sugar too much, especially if I had a typical meal (with moderate carbs) before dessert. Many of the recipes emphasize fruit, or use fruit for some of the sweetening, rather than all sugar. Fruit may have more vitamins that plain sugar, but fructose still raises my blood sugar. The recipes use no artifical sweeteners.
