Four Great Cookbooks for Diabetics

  1. Diabetes Cookbook for Dummies
  2. It seems the "Dummies" series covers everything and anything – including diabetic recipes. The “Diabetes Cookbook for Dummies” includes not only recipes but also tips for your diet. Inside, you can find advice for dining out, planning meals, grocery shopping and more.

    The sections break down like a usual cookbook, with recipes for breakfast, appetizers, soups, salads, grains and legumes, vegetables, seafood, poultry, meats, snacks and desserts. The book also names restaurants that share their recipes, so you can check them out for yourself. It’s a great book not only for cooking better meals but also for making more health-conscious decisions.

  3. Diabetic Meals in 30 Minutes – Or Less!
  4. As a nutritionist and author, Robyn Webb continues to help many people make healthier eating choices. She joined forces with the American Diabetes Association and wrote one of their bestselling books, “Diabetic Meals in 30 Minutes – Or Less!”

    The book cuts down time by offering diabetic cooks tips on how to make the most of their time from organizing the kitchen to techniques for preparing vegetables (including a useful tip on how to reduce time and tears due to onion cutting). The book also veers towards more creative categories, offering dishes for all of your “Lazy Sunday Brunch” and “Warm Summer Evening” needs.

  5. Betty Crocker’s Diabetes Cookbook: Everyday Meals, Easy as 1-2-3
  6. A household name in the recipe cookbook world, Betty Crocker offers plenty of cookbooks, among them a particularly helpful one called “Betty Crocker’s Diabetes Cookbook: Everyday Meals Easy as 1-2-3.” The company joined forces with the International Diabetes Center and made sure that the recipes follow the most recent guidelines from the American Diabetes Association.

    The cookbook includes advice for parents and caregivers and even a glossary of medical and nutritional words. You can plan ahead with the book’s menu plan, which offers tips on how to organize your meals for seven days in advance. The cookbook also stresses the idea that these recipes are beneficial for the whole family – diabetes or not. “Here’s great news about diabetes,” the book states. “The best-kept secret of diabetes food planning is that it’s good for everyone.”

  7. Biggest Book of Diabetic Recipes
  8. You're probably thinking: Is there one book that can satisfy ALL of my cooking needs? Well, if you want quantity from your cookbook, Home and Gardens’ “Biggest Book of Diabetic Recipes” can help. The volume boasts more than 300 recipes, with photos to illustrate the delectable fare you can whip up.

    You can indulge in everything from Orange-Ginger Chicken to Salsa Steak and also create delicious treats and snacks for kids. Surely something inside can quell your craving for diabetes-friendly food.
