That translates to a diet low in saturated fat (less than 10 percent of total calories). In addition, people with diabetes have other dietary challenges to manage, such as restricting sugar intake. If you know you need to make changes, but you’re not ready to switch from ham to tofu, Diabetic Low-Fat and No-Fat Meals in Minutes presents more than 250 modified recipes that fit the lower-saturated-fat requirements, avoid sugar, don’t require major taste changes, and are quick to prepare.

Each recipe includes preparation and cooking time, and the nutritional breakdown includes calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, cholesterol, and sodium. Additional sections, such as “Top 10 Ways to Cope with Picky Eaters” and “50 Ways to Do Without Sugar and Fat with Herbs, Spices, and Seasonings” make this cookbook even more useful. Author M.J. Smith is a registered dietician who specializes in working with people with diabetes and has written seven other cookbooks. –Joan Price

 

You Don’t Have to Be Diabetic to Love this Cookbook: 250 Amazing Dishes for People With Diabetes and Their Families and Friends

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

The book food lovers with diabetes have been waiting for: a through-the-menu collection of 250 dishes to meet any craving, from hot and spicy to sweet and sour, from creamy to crunchy, from pastas to dessert. Written by Tom Valenti, one of America’s Ten Best Chefs (Food & Wine) and a “clairvoyant in the kitchen” (Ruth Reichl, The New York Times)—and a diabetic—You Don’t Have To Be Diabetic To Love This Cookbook is filled with recipes so delicious, so imaginative, so varied and enticing that it will turn the burden of following a diabetic regimen into a celebration of food.

In fact, this is food for everyone in the family to sit down and enjoy, with no penalty to the non-diabetics. Valenti employs innovations and techniques that are a signature of his cuisine—acid to brighten flavors, unexpected combinations of texture and temperature, turkey bacon as a foundation ingredient to add a haunting smoky-salty quality—and he never resorts to imitation products. Recipes include Asparagus and Mushroom Risotto; Chicken Chaat; Filet Mignon with Black and Green Peppercorn Sauce; Snapper Piccata; Grilled Duck Breast Paillard with Orange, Onion, and Mint; Lamb Sausage with Warm Potato Salad; Shrimp and Tomato Ravioli; Goat Cheese Cake; Banana Mousse; Miniature Pumpkin Pies.

Real flavors, real food, and finally, real pleasure, for America’s 23.6 million diabetics.
