Best Diabetes Cook Books
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes you are aware of how difficult it can really be to start changing your diet. Many of us feel as if we need to cut out all of our favorite things. You may be reluctant at first because finding recipes that fit your new diet can be difficult. Luckily for you diabetes has become a common disease, and writers are beginning to create cookbooks especially for those with the disease.
Because we understand the struggle of finding recipes that fit the diet of a person with diabetes, we are bringing you our list of some of the best cookbooks that focus on recipes that are not only delicious but also fit the needs of your new diet. These cookbooks cover everything from snacks to delicious desserts. There is no reason why cooking for yourself, or for a diabetic loved one, should be as much drudgery as using Freestyle lancets or testing multiple times per day with the Prodigy auto code.
Diabetes Snack Munch Nibble Nosh Book
Understanding exactly what is acceptable for those mid-day hunger pains is one of the hardest struggles in changing your diet as a diabetic. This cookbook contains recipes such as chile con queso and crab cakes. The Diabetes Snack Munch Nibble Nosh Cookbook has recipes for just one person, for two people, and even for large groups. The great thing about this cookbook is that it’s for adults and children. If your child is diabetic it has recipes that will appeal to children of all ages. All of the recipes are low in fat and low in sodium; they even include a nutrients analysis of each recipe.
Magic Menus for People with Diabetes
This cookbook is more for the individual that is concentrating on calorie/carbohydrate intake. Magic Menu for People with Diabetes has 200 recipes that are hassle-free and make meal planning easier than you could have ever imagined. This cookbook is based on a diet of 1,500 calories a day, and includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The great thing about this cookbook is that it allows you to mix and match recipes according to your likes and dislikes. Many people enjoy this cookbook solely for that reason; it allows them to feel more in control of their diet.
Diabetic Dessert Cook Book
Another complication of being diagnosed with diabetes is dessert and understanding how much of it you are allowed to eat. If desserts are the one thing you truly love, this cookbook is perfect for you. These recipes are easy to follow and take care of your sweet tooth without putting your health at risk. There are over 100 recipes that include sweets such as citrus candy, bonbons, truffles, fudge, and much more! These recipes are great for those with diabetes because every single recipe uses no sugar at all or all natural sugar. You no longer have to feel like sweets need to be cut out of your diet completely. This cookbook allows you to indulge and not feel guilty! It is still important to monitor your blood sugar levels, of course—every person reacts differently. So make sure that you have your Prodigy auto code meter handy, or other diabetic supplies, such as your Freestyle lancets.
With these three cook books you are finally set free from all of the struggles of changing your diet once you are diagnosed with diabetes. Always remember that you are still allowed to eat delicious food; you just need to find the right recipes to help you do so.
