An indispensable, up-to-date resource for managing your diabetes from the global leader in diabetes research, care, and education
Finding out that you have diabetes immediately raises questions about the condition, its treatment, and its impact on your future. Why did I get diabetes? What will I have to do to treat it? How will my future health be affected by having diabetes? What will my life be like? Getting accurate answers to these and many other questions will determine how well you are able to live with diabetes.
This completely updated edition of The Joslin Guide to Diabetes will help provide the answers you need. It’s an easy-to-understand resource that explains not only the types of diabetes treatment but also every aspect of diabetes self-management, including:
• Meal planning and carbohydrate counting
• Monitoring blood glucose
• Administering insulin and taking oral medications
• Treating high and low blood glucose
• Using physical activity to help control diabetes, maintain good health, and reduce the chances of future problems
• Successfully fitting diabetes into your lifestyle
Based upon research and the clinical experience of the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center and written by physician and diabetes expert Richard S. Beaser, M.D., and nutritionist and diabetes educator Amy Campbell, R.D., M.S., C.D.E., this book will help those with diabetes integrate the medical treatments and lifestyle changes necessary to learn how to live healthfully with this condition.
During the last decade, major changes in the approach to dietary treatment of diabetes have occurred. Today it is widely recognized that people with diabetes can enjoy a high-carbohydrate meal plan low in animal proteins and saturated fat and get the nutrition they need to stay healthy and energetic. Now The Joslin Diabetes Healthy Carbohydrate Cookbook offers tasty and easy-to-prepare recipes that provide necessary protein in the form of beans, lentils, and tofu and take full advantage of the bounty of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices available year-round. Dishes such as Vietnamese Imperial Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce, Belgian Endive and Watercress Salad with Blue Cheese Toasts, Pumpkin Ravioli with Mushroom Ragout, and Star Fruit Upside-Down Cake prove that living with diabetes does not mean eating bland, tasteless foods.
The Joslin Diabetes Healthy Carbohydrate Cookbook features:
Whether you are living with diabetes or are simply in search of flavorsome, nourishing food for yourself and your family, the creative and fresh-tasting recipes and helpful information in this book will make The Joslin Diabetes Healthy Carbohydrate Cookbook an invaluable companion in your kitchen.
If you have diabetes, then you’re careful about your diet. But living with diabetes doesn’t have to mean being limited to bland, tasteless foods, nor should you have to spend excessive amounts of time planning and preparing complicated meals. Now the same authors who brought you the award-winning Joslin Diabetes Gourmet Cookbook bring you The Joslin Diabetes Quick and Easy Cookbook, with more than 200 recipes for dishes that can be prepared in thirty minutes or less.
Here are recipes for one to four people for every time of day — from Breakfast Burritos to “Power lunch” dishes to delicious dinner pastas like Mushroom Ravioli with Chunky Tomato Sauce, as well as suggestions for snacks, desserts, and beverages. Nutritional analyses and diabetic exchange information accompany each recipe. You’ll also find serving suggestions, advice on what to eat when you’re away from home or relying on restaurants, and a section on commonly asked questions about diabetes and nutrition.
Once again, Frances T. Giedt and Bonnie S. Polin, both living with diabetes, have created, in conjunction with the Nutritional Services Staff at the world-famous Joslin Diabetes Center, a delicious array of healthful recipes that will satisfy people with diabetes or anyone in search of quick nutritious meals.If you have diabetes or cook for someone with diabetes, and you have a busy life, this cookbook will solve several problems for you. All 200 recipes follow the low-fat, high-fiber, moderate-protein guidelines, and all can be prepared in 30 minutes or less with familiar ingredients from your pantry or supermarket. These recipes are tasty, providing satisfying, healthy eating for the whole family, not just the person with diabetes–no more separate meals. Imagine a breakfast of Asian Omelet with Crab (like egg foo yong without the fat and salt), Breakfast Burrito (10 minutes to prepare), or Potato Pancakes (baked instead of fried). Lunches include a variety of soups, sandwiches, and salads. Dinners emphasize pasta, seafood, poultry, and lean meats, sometimes with an ethnic flair, such as Mushroom Ravioli, Spicy Halibut Fillets with Pineapple, Sausage and Mushroom Pizza (only 16 percent fat), Shrimp Fajitas, Cajun Grilled Chicken on Yellow Rice and Peas, and Turkey Sloppy Joes. Nutritional breakdown is provided (calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, dietary fiber, cholesterol, sodium), along with exchange information. Designed to feed one to four people, the book includes savory dishes for all meals, plus exchange lists, answers to medical questions, and two weeks of menus (for both 1,200- and 1,800-calorie daily allowances). –Joan Price
