I get frustrated by all of the so-called diabetic cookbooks out there on the market. The average carbs per serving top 50 and that's just per entree… not including what a whole meal would be. Here's what I would like to see for the ultimate diabetic cookbook…
I would like to see complete menu plans where a complete meal would be around 30 grams of carbs or less… no transfat, low fat, low calorie, low cost, maybe under 30 minutes, low sodium, low preservatives, and include foods that I actually like.
So often I may find 2-3 recipes in a whole cookbook that would actually be worth copying and making. There's got to be someone out there who can assemble 365 days of truly diabetic friendly menus: breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. Let's keep the per day calories in check with an average diet and make the portion sizes enough for an average human to actually live on. Let's make the ideal cookbook allow a WHOLE cup of food rather than 1/2 cup or teaspoon servings. After all, this is MY idea of the ultimate cookbook.
I don't care about fancy color photographs or articles on how to cut up a mango or featuring gourmet recipes that require a bank loan.
Can someone please write a cookbook for the average diabetic person that serves one and can be doubled or tripled for families??? I get tired of trying to cut recipes down, freezing massive quantities of leftovers or having to live on eight servings of one entree for a week and a half. Can we have this cookbook with frugality in time???
Is all of this too much to ask for???
