Best Diabetes Cookbook?

As a new person with diabetes, I have been making a lot of changes to my life style of late!

 

I was wondering what diabetes cookbook does a lot of the boards members use?

 

I have Robin Webbs, COMFORT FOODS and have enjoyed many of her dishes.

 

THANKS ~

Most of us would recommend that you look for Low-Carb cookbooks instead of Diabetes cookbooks, which generally have too many carbs for most of us.

 

You can also check out low-carb website which have many recipes, just do a search for low-carb recipes.

Another book which is a favorite among many here was written by Neal Bernard titled Prevent and Reverse Diabetes. There are many recipe suggestions in the book offered by a qualified board certified physician.

The best advice I can offer for purchase of "diabetes cookbooks" is DON'T.

 

As Lizzy wrote, if you must buy a cook-book, look for low-carb cook-books.  I know nothing about Robin Webb's recipes, but if a recipe does not have a carb count under it I tend to ignore it unless it really looks delicious. In that case I run it through an analyser to work out my own carb count and to decide whether the acceptable portion size is worth the trouble of cooking it.

Veganist is stretching the truth a very, very looooong way with "a favorite among many here". That is my polite way of saying that is balderdash.

 

Speaking only for myself, I detest Barnard. I suspect that I am not alone here.

Neal Bernard is a PETA frontman and one who stretches the truth about as far as one possibly can and if that doesn't work he outright lies.  They call the person who had the worst grades in med. school doctor!

 

There are no people here who consider him a favorite, except perhaps for people you "plant" to try to give legitimacy to your outrageous ideas and opinions.

That sounds like a blog by Alan_S rather than a book.  Is that what you had in mind?

It does include recipes, some of which reappear in the book :smileyhappy:

I agree with what others have said, try low carb cookbooks for diabetes friendly recipes.  Most diabetic cookbooks have a few recipes that are lower in carbohydrates, but many, many are not.  If a serving size contains 45 grams of carbohydate, I immediately know that it won't be right for me personally.  I want cookbooks with recipes I can actually use myself.  I'm not just browsing for the fun of it. ;-)
