I have blood sugar problems and, I suspect, pre-diatbes. I had the hardest time finding cookbooks that had a big section on ideas for just vegetables! I wanted to add more interesting veggie side dishes into my meal plans but even the vegetarian books I looked at just didn't have what I wanted. This book does - and a whole lot more. Lots of stews and soups and skillet meals. Most of them can be served either plain (such as a soup or stew) or over rice or noodles. The nice thing is that most of the recipes don't incorporate many carbs, therefore making them low-glycemic, which is great for anyone who struggles with diabetes, pre-diabetes, hypoglycemia (which is my issue) or any other problems with erratic or unstable blood glucose levels. I have tried MANY of the recipes and found them all to be "keepers". I do love that I can make some kind of meal that can be served over rice and give it to my family that way and serve it to myself without rice. You won't be disappointed in this book. The only thing I can say in a negative way is that the author is very much into a "no sodium" way of thinking so everything is listed as "salt-free" and he never adds salt to any recipe. I add salt to all of them and find the flavor enhanced even more. Check out this book! I use mine several times a week and will continue to for years to come.

My basic complaint about the book is that it uses Splenda a lot. I prefer to not use artificial sweeteners, but I can work around that. Having high blood pressure its nice that he keeps the sodium levels low. Many diabetics have additional health concerns and he seems to be mindful of that.

I thought there would be good low glycemic recipes here, There is no additional sugar added, but the pre-made ingredients that are used to prepare the foods are not "low glycemic." So be careful. There are other cookbooks out there that are "from scratch" instead of using pre-packaged food.

"500 Low Glycemic Index Recipes" has a ton of creative recipes that are low in salt and sugar. In fact if you want to add salt you have to figure out how much to add yourself to taste. Some recipes call for a reduced-sodium soy sauce and this recipe is in the front of the cookbook. For the recipes I made I just used a reduced-sodium soy sauce from the store.

The recipe my husband and I liked the most was the "Oriental-Style Flank Steak." Now flank steak is fairly expensive so I was a bit tentative about trying a new recipe. The recipe called for green onions, sesame seeds, barbecue sauce, garlic and soy sauce. I left out the ginger. This flank steak then marinates for a few days for optimum flavor. I must say it was excellent and my husband even wanted to eat it again the next day so he had leftovers.

The second recipe I tried was the "Chicken Wontons." I adapted the recipe quite a bit and left out the carrots, celery, sherry, ginger and soy sauce. Instead I added one teaspoon of seasoning salt and mixed in chopped yellow onion. The cooking time ended up being more like 20 minutes instead of 10 but they turned out fine. They were easy enough to make but I'd advise you buy a 14-ounce package of wonton wrappers since this recipe makes about 30 instead of 25.

Some of the other recipes that look good include:

Scotch Eggs
Bean Dip
Hawaiian Fish Fillets
Curried Beef
Marinated Vegetable Salad
Manicotti
Lite Lemon Cheesecake
Grilled Pineapple Kabobs

There are not a lot of dessert recipes and many do call for sugar substitutes like Splenda.

The only thing I have to complain about is that the text size for the index is really tiny and hard to read. Otherwise this is a great book.

I bought this book to supplement my other low GI cookbooks. This book has some really great recipes! My husband, who typically doesn't like "healthy" foods, thought the meals I made from this book were fantastic. I think the author includes a little bit of everything that a wide variety of people can enjoy.

So glad I found this cookbook. I'm insulin resistant and this book is a big help since almost every single recipe in it has less than 30 carbs per serving. The recipes are tasty and easy to make. It's nice not having to try and figure out the carbs and protein amounts in my head, although I have made a few changes to lower the carbs- ex using low carb tortillas instead of the flour ones called for. My only issue with it is that a few of the recipes call for Splenda and I have no particular desire to put chlorine in my cookies.

My father is diabetic and is also on a low sodium low potassium diet. This is a hard combination to find recipes for! Everything I've cooked from this book, nearly 4 dozen recipes, has been great. I've already recommended it to others who are following similar diets.

A wide variety of recipes to meet everyone's likes taste wise and many include items you may typically keep in your kitchen. I've cooked some of these recipes for company and they had no idea there was anything "special" about them. I also appreciated that it has a breakdown of calories protein, fat, water, etc. and indicates where the recipe falls on the glycemic index (for example, stuffed mushrooms are low on the index). This book is well thought out and was a good purchase for my kitchen.
