5.0 out of 5 stars Really great book if you are diabetic or not. 6 Jan 2007
By pepemia VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I bought this book for my mother in law as a present as she had been newly diagonaised with diabeties. Unlikely a lot of books I had looked at this was simple to understand, had good general information and also easy recipes. A lot of books seemed to have fancy recipes for food I knew she would never eat but this has great, easy recipes for everyones tastes. I was so impressed by the recipes I bought it for myself and im not diabetic. The recipes dont have photos but are really easy to cook, usually with some recipe books you only use about three or four recipes but this has countless recipes I am trying.

The information at the beginning explains about diabeties , how foods can affect diabeties and what foods can be eaten or avoid. Very clear infortmation that does not bog you down and is easy to understand. It is also great advice for those with family/friends who are diabetic.

Highily recommend , no nonsense book which I would recommend to everyone - diabetic. health conscious or just who likes good recipes !

I have enjoyed this book, and have already prepared several of the recipes. It is well organised and contains a lot of information which I, newly diagnosed, found very helpful indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and useful 1 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is clear and recipes are useful, quantities, calories, carbohidrates etc are well measured and clearly detailed. The only thing is that no photos are included in the recipes, but this is a minor detail. The book is cheap enough as to not have photos in it.
