All New Complete Step-By-Step Diabetic Cookbook

Over 300 Great-Tasting Recipes for You and Your Family

Five Steps to Success
1. Take Charge. A diagnosis of diabetes can be overwhelming, but here are ten basic things you need to do when you’re newly diagnosed (page 7).
2. Eat Smart. Use the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans as a framework for healthy eating when you have diabetes (page 11).
3. Count Carbs. Not all carbs are bad. It’s a matter of picking the right kind of carbs in the right amounts so that you can control blood sugar levels (page 15).
4. Create a “Diabetes-Friendly” Kitchen. Learn how to stock your kitchen to simplify healthy cooking (page 17).
5. Dine for Pleasure. Eating out is not off-limits when you have diabetes. It’s all about making choices. We’ve got restaurant strategies (page 27) as well as a holiday menu planning guide (page 37).

The research continues to show that controlling blood glucose levels can prevent or slow the development of diabetes complications, reduce the incidence of heart disease, and result in a better quality of life for people with diabetes. There’s no reason not to start today and take charge of your diabetes. As a person who has lived with type 1 diabetes for over 34 years, I know that managing diabetes can be a daunting task. But with our five-step plan and collection of over 300 recipes, we give you the tools to manage your diabetes in a way that works for you.

The ALL-NEW Complete Step-By-Step Diabetic Cookbook provides information on assembling your health care team, setting goals, using resources, counting carbs, stocking your kitchen, and eating away from home. One of the biggest complaints I hear from folks who are following a diabetic diet is that they’re tired of eating the same things day after day. So we’ve filled this collection with too-good-to-be-true main dishes, breakfasts, soups, sandwiches, snacks, and desserts that your whole family will enjoy.

Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll get from the ALL-NEW Complete Step-By-Step Diabetic Cookbook:

  • over 300 kitchen-tested, dietitian-approved recipes
  • complete nutrient breakdown for every recipe including carbohydrate, fiber, calories, fat, protein, and sodium
  • recipe tips and shortcuts
  • grocery shopping list for stocking up your kitchen
  • strategies for eating on the run
  • family-pleasing holiday menus
  • sugar substitute guide

When it gets down to it, the basic question everyone asks when they find out they have diabetes is “What can I eat?” You’ll be pleased with the answers in the ALL-NEW Complete Step-By-Step Diabetic Cookbook.
