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
Prepared jointly by the American Diabetes Association and The American Dietetic Association, The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes is the most authoritative and comprehensive cookbook available for people with diabetes and their families. With more than 375 recipes that taste as good as they are good for you, this book makes it easy to prepare satisfying and delicious meals that the whole family will enjoy.
If you are a person with diabetes, you know you have to be careful about what you eat. But healthful food doesn't have to be dull, and reducing fat and calories doesn't mean giving up flavor. Why feel deprived when you could start the day with Scrambled Eggs with Ham and a hot Buttermilk Biscuit? Company coming? Everyone will enjoy a savory Cheddar Cheese Dip served with crisp raw vegetables and apple slices. Grilled Orange-Mustard Chicken with Apple-Pecan Wild Rice and steamed broccoli make a perfect family dinner, or try Shrimp and Asparagus with Fettuccine in Mustard Cream Sauce for a weekend supper. Have a hankering for something sweet? Port-Poached Pears are an elegant fat-free dessert, or indulge in heavenly Angel Food Cake with Cocoa Whipped Cream.
The recipes in The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes are consistent with the latest diabetes recommendations and make the best use of the new lower-fat ingredients available today. Each recipe is accompanied by a nutritional analysis and the most current diabetes exchange information; recipes containing more than 400 milligrams of sodium per serving are flagged.
A winning combination of the most recent nutritional recommendations and contemporary culinary tastes, The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes is the one book all those with diabetes should have in their kitchen library.
