At last! This special cookbook puts flavor and choice back on the menu for people with diabetes and their families
Betty Crocker, America's most trusted friend in the kitchen, has teamed up with the International Diabetes Center (IDC)--one of the leading medical centers--to create an indispensable source of easy-to-make recipes and up-to-the-minute food and nutrition information for the growing numbers of people who have diabetes, more than 15 million of them.
Here is the first cookbook to include recipes featuring Carbohydrate Choices--the new, simplified approach to meal planning recommended by the American Diabetes Association. For people who find diet exchanges too hard, too limiting or too much work, this new method is a real breakthrough. Each of the book's 140 recipes shows the number of Carbohydrate Choices per serving, so that planning the rest of the meal is easy. From Old-Time Beef and Vegetable Stew to Creamy Vanilla-Caramel Cheesecake, the recipes are made with everyday ingredients, including sugar. No food groups or ingredients are left out, so there's no need for anyone to feel deprived or restricted to a special diet. Food exchanges are also included, making it easy for those who still count calories.
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook is also packed with expert medical and nutrition tips from Dr. Richard Bergenstal, an endocrinologist and diabetes doctor, and two registered nurses--invaluable for the newly diagnosed as well as for those who have been coping with diabetes for years. Throughout the book, real-life advice from people who have diabetes offers inspiration and great ideas on dealing with this chronic disease. When it comes to eating and living with diabetes, people need guidance and advice they can trust.

This book is designed to make meals easy. It's our first cookbook to count Carbohydrate Choices for every recipe, following the latest guidelines of the American Diabetes Association.
You'll also turn to this book for its easy-to-follow health information, from an explanation of the types of diabetes to a nutrition primer and a medical resource guide. The section "Diabetes Care: It's in Your Hands" empowers you to understand your care process. The goal is to help you feel in control of your diabetes, instead of letting diabetes control you.
Throughout, you'll find plenty of encouragement. There's real-life advice from people with diabetes, as well as parents of kids with diabetes and other caregivers who deal with diabetes day in, day out.
Finally, you'll find a week's worth of delicious menus, complete with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack ideas, followed by a glossary of medical, nutrition and other diabetes terms.
As a source for recipes and so much more, Betty Crockers' Diabetes Cookbook will become your all-in-one diabetes resource.
