Format: Hardcover
Making smart food choices is such an intricate part of staying healthy for anyone who suffers from diabetes and Jackie Mills has done an admirable job of showcasing just how many good choices are available that offer nutrition and ease of preparation without compromising flavor.
Mills provides suggested 7-day menu plans to make it easier to follow dietary restrictions and offers an abundance of clearcut advice in the book's opening pages about stocking a healthy pantry, eating sensibly without feeling deprived and smart substitutions for sugar and other ingredients.
Certain recipes are tagged as quick or high fiber or both which proves helpful and most recipes are in the moderate to complex range when it comes to number of ingredients and preparation time.
We miss any artwork or appealing photos, but suppose that Mills decided to devote the more than 600 pages of this heavy volume to information, recipes and tips.
Mills is clever at turning what she calls "ho-hum" ingredients such as chicken and green beans into meals such as Peanut Chicken with Green Beans that are worthy of serving to company.
"1,000 Diabetes Recipes" would be a welcome gift for any diabetic who enjoys food and cooking and there is certainly plenty of variety to appeal to all tastes.

1000 Diabetes Recipes is a veritable tome. In its 625-plus pages, the author--an extremely talented, smart, and seasoned recipe developer and true authority on her subject--provides delicious recipes and helpful tips (such as salad matching guidelines). This book is not just for those with diabetes! Perhaps that's because the recipes are super-flavorful and imaginative, not depriving. Take savory tarts made with couscous and quinoa crusts, which I'd never seen before. Let's spread the word about this encyclopedic cookbook, an incredible value for the amount of content you're getting.

Format: Hardcover
I have to admit, I am a fan of previous cookbooks by Ms. Mills, and when her 1,000 Diabetes Recipes book was released, I knew I had to have a copy. Let me say that I do NOT have diabetes, and one way to keep even pre-diabetes away is to be conscious of the need to watch what I eat.

Ms. Mills has provided the culinary community with a volume of recipes that are not only easy to create, but their simplicity in creation takes away all excuses from eating fresh with tasty, healthy recipes at one's fingertips.

One of the most important features of this newly released cookbook is the fact that Ms. Mills provides her readers with an education in nutrition that is easy to understand. She includes the carbohydrate and calorie counts, which allows those following a low-carb regime a great variety of choices to continue as a lifelong plan of healthy dietary habits and delicious nutrition with great flavors and ease of preparation. Her "7-Day 1,800 Calorie Menu" along with "A Dozen Menus for Special Days" provides her audience with great ways to stay focused on healthy, tasty eating. The visual cue for Food Measurements (xvi) is a unique way to "eyeball" quantity when measuring.

For those of us who are NOT diabetic, her recipes just make sense! The variety in this 1,000 recipe volume enables any cook to plan meals with ease.

Here are three examples of recipes found in the book:

Everyday granola (p. 6) - A household standard, so much fresher that the store-bought stuff! All the ingredients are easily accessible and can be found in most panties, and the ease of preparing this recipe makes it simple for all.

Personally I don't need pictures, but I'm not the only cook in the house and my wife often likes to see a meal to know if she wants to make it. I've made about a dozen recipes from this book so far and they've all been satisfying. It's easy to plan a weekly meal plan and groceries by just selecting what to make in advance. The best thing about this book is that we've never seen a blood test get into bad levels with one of these meals yet.

This cookbook has become a staple in my kitchen. I consider myself an experienced cook who uses fresh and healthy ingredients but even I was a little worried about our diet when my husband was unexpectedly diagnosed with Diabetes. I have found this book a wonderful resource for diabetics and our whole family has enjoyed every recipe I have prepared so far. I would agree that this is an excellent cookbook for anyone who enjoys healthy eating and delicious food. It certainly doesn't feel like we have been deprived of good food in any way and I would reccomend it (and do as I work in a medical clinic) to everyone.
