I was talking with a member earlier today and she asked what cook book I could recommend for diabetic cooking. To be honest, I have only 2 diabetic style cook books and found that I have to adjust those recipes about as much as a non-diabetic cook book. So now I just use a recipe that sounds good and make my adjustments. See some tips for doing this here: http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discu...
However, I do have my favorite "go to" books that are ear marked and food stained. These are my best loved cook books
1. Flavorful Seasons Cookbook by Robyn Webb (by the ADA)
2. 500 Low-Carb Recipes by Dana Carpender
3. Betty Crocker's Cookbook (mine is the 9th printing from 1983)
4. The Carbohydrates Addict's Cookbook by Dr. Richard Heller & Dr. Rachael Heller
5. And of course a book that I compile of recipes I find in books, magazines, family recipes and online. This one needs to be moved into a bigger binder!
They all show the changes and substitutions and even if the family liked them or not on the pages. They are a great tool to keep us from getting bored with eating the same old thing. And never be afraid to try something you would never eat. You may be surprised.
Food is a tool for us. It can be helpful or hurtful. If we use the right tool for the job, we will enjoy the results and maybe just expand our taste buds a bit.
Please share your favorite books or the ones that you would avoid like the plague. LOL
