Just because you suffer from diabetes does not mean that you have to eat tasteless, bland food for the rest of your life. The Simple Diabetic Cookbook contains 120 recipes that are delicious and easy to make. Whether for yourself or a member of your family, you will find ideas to make your meals intereting and varied. The book starts with general dietary advice for diabetics and explains how diet can affect this condition. Blood glucose control is crucial in diabetes and these recipes, together with advice on following the GI (glycaemic index) diet, can help you to manage your blood glucose levels. The book contains recipes for every occasion, from starters to main courses for everyday meals and special occasions. Desserts, cakes and biscuits are also included. Each recipe is accompanied by nutritional information that makes it easy to see at a glance the fat and carbohydrate content. A meal-planner allows you to plan in advance and prepare mixes so that you can quickly make your own bread and cakes. Once you become used to the ingredients and methods used it will become second nature to think ahead and plan your meals using these recipes. Using this book, anyone living with diabetes can always find something delicious to eat.
