Product Description

From the Back Cover

"A welcome addition to the kitchen library of anyone interested in healthy eating."--Journal of the American Dietetic Association

More than 250,000 copies sold and better than ever!

Having diabetes doesn't mean having to say good-bye to tasty meals and hello to a lifetime of eating bland food. The New Diabetic Cookbook is full of delicious recipes that are tailored to your special nutritional needs. These time-tested recipes are full of fiber and low in cholesterol, salt, sugar, and saturated fat, yet not short on taste. This fifth edition has been updated with the most recent food exchange lists from the American Diabetes Association, greatly expanded nutrition tables, and concise information on saturated fat, fiber, and cholesterol. The New Diabetic Cookbook also provides tips on meal planning, canning, and freezing. Bestselling author Mabel Cavaiani has added a new chapter explaining how you can prepare your own mixes for a quick, healthy batch of cupcakes, cookies, cakes, or bread, all safe for a diabetic diet. With all of its tasty recipes and invaluable information, The New Diabetic Cookbook is a must-have for your kitchen library.

A good general cookbook with some of the best nutrition exchange information. Searching bookshelves, I've been surprised at how few of the books (particularly for diabetics) didn't give nutrition information in any depth. I have a relative new to diabetes and the food exchanges, counting fat grams, etc. are confusing and difficult--this was almost exactly what I wanted.

Recipes are useless. It's suppose to be a diabetic cookbook which means that I want recipes that I can make that are low in sugar, instead you get a book full of Meat and soups. Big Whoop, I never add sugar to my meats when I cook. But I want to make cakes cookies and squares, frostings, etc.. that are diabetic friendly. This book went straight to Value Village.

I would like to see recipes with more flavor. I tried one and it turned out but was really bland. It is hard to get someone that is diagnosed with diabetes to eat something that is so bland.

I am so glad I bought this. Being a new diabetic I was at a total loss as to what to cook. I can eat wonderful food that doesn't taste as if I am eating saw dust. Wonderful flavourful recipes.

Disappointed.... Nov. 1 2006
By Deborah S. Jones - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wanted a diabetic cookbook because my husband and my mother (who lives with us) are trying to eat healthier. I thought following some of the diabetic recipes would be a good healthy, sensible way to eat. I didn't realize that about 1/2 of this entire book is information about diabetes.... the other half is recipes. We don't need all the technical information on diabetes. If you are looking for info on diabetes, then this is definitely the book for you. But if you are looking for healthy diabetic recipes only, this is NOT the book. I wish I had known before I had purchased this book that it is an information first/recipes second book.

Not great for me April 21 2007
By Vanessa E - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was recently diagnosed with gestational diabetes. My nutritionist basically told me to watch my carbs, but dont limit my fat/salt/etc at this time. I bought this along with a Betty Crocker Diabetic Cookbook Everyday Meals Easy as 1-2-3. I am glad I bought the other one. It has pictures and is much easier to navigate. In my case the New Diabetic cookbook spends too much time on diabetes information and isn't as appealing for meals. Great for someone else, just not me!

There is nothing wrong with the recipes in this book but they are boring. I could (and have) put them together without the expense of this book. If you are new to diabetic cooking, this book may be helpful. However, if you are an old hand, forget it!

Look for a recent publishing date...not this book June 20 2007
By Patricia Frymyer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping I could eat a little better, since I have "elevated blood sugar levels" but I think most recipes in this book would give me "elevated cholesterol levels" instead. At its publishing date I'm sure it was better than what most people were using to cook with, but we now know that margarine is full of the bad stuff that clogs our arteries, and just about every recipe seemed to have that as an ingredient. So if you're looking for healthy cooking, this isn't the place to start. I suggest finding a book with a publishing date of the last few years, that would have taken into consideration trans fats and our need to eliminate them.
I'm eating my way through the recipes. April 1 2013

One by one I'm trying the recipes that sounded good. It's a pleasure to enjoy all the different tastes I'm coming up with the same main meat or poultry. My blood sugar is stable as well.
