The Best Recipes And Cookbooks For Managing Diabetes

The Best Recipes And Cookbooks For Managing Diabetes

My godmother has had Type 1 diabetes all her life. I was always fascinated by her insulin pumps, regular skin pricks to check her blood sugar levels, and all of the effort that went into managing her disease. As an adult, I admire how she has accepted her condition and worked all her life to stay healthy. Diabetes is a challenging disease that is affecting a growing number of people around the world. Although some people are born with diabetes (Type 1), you can also develop it later in life (Type 2) or during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). In all cases, diet plays a very important role in managing the condition so that it doesn’t escalate or cause further complications. In this article, I’ll share a number of recipes that are optimal for those managing diabetes, and take a look at some of the most helpful cookbooks out there to help maintain a healthy lifestyle through your home cooking. Feel free to skip right ahead to see current prices and reviews on Amazon of the cookbooks, listed below. Diabetes Overview and Recipes The simple version of diabetes is that the body struggles to maintain normal blood glucose levels (which a healthy body does insulin production), putting sufferers at risk for a number of complications. Although managing diabetes requires a variety of interventions, a healthy diet plays a very important role. Here’s a quick overview of what happens to the diabetic body: Eating for diabetes means avoiding simple and starchy carbohydrates, especially sugar. The good news is that the basic principles of a healthy diet for diabetes are the same as what nutritionists and doctors recommend for everyone: a diet rich in vegetables and fruits, fiber, whole grains, healthy animal proteins; and low in saturated fat, empty calories, added sugar, and proces Continue reading >>

Cookbooks For People With Diabetes

Cookbooks For People With Diabetes

Amy Olson, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, may soon have to replace her favorite cookbook. She still loves the recipes, and so does her family. But the book -- Quick and Healthy Recipes and Ideas: For People Who Say They Don't Have Time to Cook Healthy Meals by Brenda Ponichtera (Scaledown, 1991) -- is so dog-eared and stained with splotches of sauce that she could use a new copy. For Olson, a good cookbook is more than just a convenience. Like her clients at the hospital, she has diabetes, and her health depends on the choices she makes in the kitchen. The recipes in her favorite cookbook aren't specifically geared for people with diabetes, but they do tend to be light in fat, calories, and carbohydrates. As an added bonus, every recipe comes with detailed nutritional information, such as calories, total fat, and carbohydrate count, making it much easier for her to fit the meals into her daily plan. Olson encourages all of her diabetes patients to find healthy recipes that they'll enjoy cooking at home. A cookbook doesn't have to have the word "diabetes" on the cover to be helpful, but each recipe should include a breakdown of fat, calories, and carbs. "A lot of general cookbooks have that information, but diabetes patients may have to weed out some of the recipes," she says. When shopping for a cookbook, people with diabetes should think about what kinds of foods they really like to eat, Olson says. Chilled cucumber soup may be healthy, but it isn't always realistic for people who crave heartier fare. If you're a carb lover, for instance, it's possible to find a cookbook that satisfies your taste buds yet stays within your dietary budget.

The internet has a lot of good sites for cookbooks like Amazon.com. If you want to find diabetic cookbooks that suit your specific needs you could always try my website at Diabetic Cookbook Blog (dot) com. I do diabetic cookbook reviews and I try to pinpoint the diabetic cookbooks towards a specific type of diabetes. I am also creating my own diabetic cookbooks that are cultural in narture. There are so many good cookbooks, its difficult to choose. I like most anything that Williams-Sonoma puts out. And Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country, especially the Cook's Illustrated "Best" series. For "diabetic" cookbooks, I like the ones that Better Homes and Gardens has published recently, Diabetic Living Cookbook and Diabetic Living Everyday Cooking. Seems like I adjust most recipes to better suit my meal plans, whether they come from a regular cookbook or a diabetic cookbook. Today I'm making flour tortillas for the first time. Instead of using all-purpose flour like the recipe calls for, I used half whole wheat and half bread flour. The balls are in the refrigerator now chilling for a half hour before I cook them. Flavorful Seasons Cookbook (ADA book) by Webb. I like it because it is broken down into seasons and gives me some out of the box recipes to try. Carbohydrate Addict's Cookbook by Heller. This has some very basic recipes that I can companion with almost anything. 500 Low-Carb Recipes by Carpender. This one has a lot of more intricate recipes.

Im Writing A Diabetic Cookbook Will You Share Your Story?

Im Writing A Diabetic Cookbook Will You Share Your Story?

An astounding factby 2050 if we stay on the same trajectory, 1 in 3 Americans will have diabetes or pre-diabetes. Chances are theres someone you love that lives with this challenging disease. Type 1 diabetes, which affects 5 10 percent of people with diabetes, is not preventable and often begins in childhood. Type 2 diabetes, which is far more prevalent, can be preventable and often treatable at onset by maintaining a healthy weight, exercising and eating well. My grandfather Isadore Shlensky had diabetes. I have early memories of watching him give himself insulin shots in his stomach (maybe thats where my fear of needles developed!). As a child, I couldnt imagine having to give myself shots every dayfrankly, even as a grown woman I cringe at the thought. Last year, Grandpa Ises daughter, my beloved aunt Gerry, was diagnosed with diabetes, which so far she has been able to manage with medicine and some lifestyle changes. Either the propensity for diabetes runs in our family, or we are just a typical American family, Im not quite sure which. But I want to do what I can to help people avoid or live better with this disease. While Im no expert in diabetes, I have become somewhat of an expert in healthy cooking and eating over the course of my 16 years developing and sharing healthy recipes, including writing 3 cookbooks . Thats why Ive teamed up with the American Diabetes Association to write a Six OClock Scramble meal-planning diabetic cookbook for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes. I can imagine that when people are first diagnosed, they feel panicked about the lifestyle changes they have to make and are desperate for guidance when it comes to meal planning and cooking, and I hope I can serve them (pun intended). Ive just begun to write the diabetic cookbook, which Continue reading >>

Sue Spitler, Linda Eugene and Linda Yoakam have put together an excellent cookbook in 1,001 Delicious Recipes for People with Diabetes. Their recipes include complete nutrition information, including carbohydrate amounts and exchanges. New to this edition is a separate chapter on Vegetarian Entrees, including codes indicating if the recipes are V (Vegan), LO (lacto-ovo vegetarian), L (lacto vegetarian), and O (ovo vegetarian). Personally, I think they should have included such coding in the other chapters because many other recipes are also vegetarian. Furthermore, they could have added coding for those recipes that are GF (gluten free). Nevertheless, the recipes are delicious sounding.

Best Diabetic Cookbook?

Best Diabetic Cookbook?

My father is a diabetic, type 2 and I really want to find a great diabetic cookbook, there are so many, but which ones are the best??? If you're beginning to learn about cooking for the diabetic I would recommend "Cooking for Diabetics" (Kitty Maynard, R.N., Lucian Maynard, R.N.; Theodore Duncan, M.D.) as a good book to start with. There are lots of very good books on cooking for the diabetic and once you learn the basics you'll find yourself capable of identifying the better books with only a cursory inspection of their content. What I like about this cookbook is that it includes a lot of nutritional information that many either lack or don't cover thoroughly. I used to struggle with artificial sweeteners. Now that I've found Splenda (there are other brands of the same stuff if you shop around for it - Walmart has a brand that I can't recall at the moment that's essentially identical and much less expensive) and learned how to use it (I find that if I use it on a one to one ratio with sugar the finished product is much too sweet) the meals I prepare for diabetics are much better. Oh, one more thing. If you're cooking for anyone with special dietary needs you should try to develop the habit of reading labels. You'd be amazed how much sugar (sodium, etc.) is in things you'd never expect to find them in and in amounts that will astound you. Also, sugar by any other name (and there are many names) is still sugar. I have The Art of Cooking for the Diabetic.. by Mary Abbott Hess, L. H. D., M. S., R. D., F. A. D. A. This one is updated to include the American Diabetes Association nutrition recommendations and revised exchange lists.. I also have and recommend: Multicultural Cooking (light and easy).. and: Full Of Beans.. Both books by Kay Spicer.. Both endorsed by the Canadi Continue reading >>

A Baker Resurrects A Diabetic Cookbook From 1917 (sort Of)

A Baker Resurrects A Diabetic Cookbook From 1917 (sort Of)

What would you think if I presented you with one of my recipes but gave you very little instruction on how to actually make it? Say I just gave you the ingredient list and told you to put it together and stick it in the oven? Or if I wasnt even particularly clear about the ingredients list, if I mentioned using separated eggs, but I really only meant that you should use just the egg whites? What if I didnt even tell you an oven temperature at which to bake the item? I am going to take a wild stab here and say you wouldnt think much of me as a recipe writer. In fact, youd probably never visit my food blog again. I know that I sometimes make a typo or forget to list a step in the instructions. But on the whole, I try to write my recipes the way I would want to read them: clearly, concisely and carefully. So imagine my confusion, not to mention my frustration, when trying to recreate recipes from a cookbook that made all of the aforementioned transgressions. Let me give you a little background here. My friend, Jessica Apple, editor of A Sweet Life Diabetes Magazine, came across an old diabetic cookbook and thought it might make good story material. And by old cookbook, I mean really old. As in written almost 100 years ago. Diabetic Cookery , by Rebecca W. Oppenheimer, was published in 1917, at a time when such cookbooks didnt really exist for diabetics in need of carbohydrate restriction. In fact the preface begins like this, The author would feel diffidence in publishing a cook book when so many other excellent ones already exist, if it were not that she is treating a special field. It is important to note that Oppenheimers book was published five years prior to the discovery of insulin in 1922, at a time when type 1 diabetics died quickly from the disease, and type 2 di Continue reading >>
