Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This cookbook is aimed at helping "stop heart trouble before it starts" in people with diabetes. That translates to a diet low in saturated fat (less than 10 percent of total calories). In addition, people with diabetes have other dietary challenges to manage, such as restricting sugar intake. If you know you need to make changes, but you're not ready to switch from ham to tofu, Diabetic Low-Fat and No-Fat Meals in Minutes presents more than 250 modified recipes that fit the lower-saturated-fat requirements, avoid sugar, don't require major taste changes, and are quick to prepare. Most of these recipes are lower-fat substitutes for familiar, fatty favorites, such as Blender Egg Nog (no fat, made with nonfat milk and egg substitute), Chicken Pot Pie, Cheese Nachos (made with reduced-fat cheese), Low-Fat Pancakes, Bean and Bacon Casserole, Chicken Chow Mein, and even Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies. Each recipe includes preparation and cooking time, and the nutritional breakdown includes calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, cholesterol, and sodium. Additional sections, such as "Top 10 Ways to Cope with Picky Eaters" and "50 Ways to Do Without Sugar and Fat with Herbs, Spices, and Seasonings" make this cookbook even more useful. Author M.J. Smith is a registered dietician who specializes in working with people with diabetes and has written seven other cookbooks. --Joan Price

I bought this cookbook for my mother to use (father is diabetic and had heart bypass surgery). It has so many great recipes and lets you know what to do in order to make it have less sodium, etc. It has red meat recipes (he can't eat that) but we just substitute fish, chicken, or turkey. It uses ingredients she actually had in the kitchen and would use again (not just for one recipe). I made the "No fat fried chicken" (a baked recipe to taste like fried) and my dad said it was the best chicken he has ever had. These recipes will dress up the same few meats so that one doesn't get tired of the same thing and give up on a new way of life. The recipes are so, so, easy. My mother hates to cook and loves this book.

I have tried two recipes from this book and will be trying more soon. What I really love is that these recipes are not too flashy-they don't have a million ingredients and are pretty quick to put together. For a July 4th party, I made the "Kitchen Quarterback Salsa and Bean Dip" and the "Diet Mountain Dew Salad" simultaneously while my six month old was screaming at me. I think that says a LOT about the simplicity/ease of preparation that these recipes entail.

The best part is that some of my guests were the type to gripe about low-fat/diet food and they RAVED about these dishes and asked me for the book info. That says a lot about the taste factor.

I would highly recommend this book for people that want quick diet food that actually TASTES good.

Fantastic book. Is a help when trying to figure out what to eat. A lot of low glycemic meals are loaded wth fat. By using this book you can figure out what to eat and lose weight. And still keep blood sugar levels down.

This is a great cook book. I have made several of the recipes in it, and they taste great. And I'm not even diabetic!

I am a Type 1 Diabetic, and was looking for low carbohydrate meals for myself and family of four - and if they were low fat as well, that would be a bonus. As promised, the book is filled with low-fat recipes. However, snacks were as much as 25 grams of carbs, and meals (per serving) ranged from 14 grams of carbs (which is pretty good) to 40 grams -- which you can do quite easily with your own recipes. I was very disappointed in this purchase. I have not even tried the recipes yet...but if you are diabetic and looking for low carb recipes, this is not the book for you.
