Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

From the first glance it's clear that this diabetes cookbook is different: the recipes are in large print. It's also different because each recipe makes one or two servings--no waste, no leftovers--for people with diabetes who are living alone or with one other person. No-Fuss Diabetes Recipes for 1 or 2 presents 125 recipes--both traditional and ethnically diverse--that "match good taste with good health" and don't require odd, hard-to-find ingredients. Each major section (breakfast, lunch, dinner) opens with 5 quick recipes that require no more than 8 ingredients and no more than 20 minutes to prepare. Most recipes are modifications of foods you've always liked: Huevos Rancheros, several types of muffins, Black Bean Burritos, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chocolate Pudding, Scallop Fettuccini. Some are more quirky: Blueberry Fruit Pizza (not pizza at all, but a breakfast item made with pita bread, fat-free cream cheese, apricot preserves, walnuts, and blueberries), Sweet Potato Lunch, Lentil Spaghetti, and Middle Eastern Muffin Burgers (ground beef, couscous, and applesauce). Nutritional breakdown includes calories, carbohydrate, protein, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and fiber. --Joan Price

This is an excellent book of recipes that taste so good and are easy to make for diabetics and others. The authors are registered dietitians and a nutrient analysis is provided for each of the recipes.
I bought the book for my mother-in-law who is diabetic and decided to keep it myself because the recipes are so good and so easy.
It also has a section to help diabetics with planning their meals to meet their meal plan.
I am a second year dietetic intern who will definitely recommend this book for my clients when I begin practicing in May 2000.

There seems to be two camps developing in the type 2
comunity, those who follow the traditional ADA high-carb
and low-fat way-of-life and those who follow the
low-carb, higher protein/fat way. This book is in the
high-carb group. Since I'm keeping my BG's 2hrs post
meal near the pre-meal targets (<120), the meals here
did not help me. Your milage may vary.

I am so pleased to have found this book. Type II runs in our family, and I'm trying to prevent it, by being careful about carbs, and balancing them with protein. All the balancing work is done for you. Great to find a cookbook with easy recipes that taste good, and you won't have to eat it all week! It was just what I had been looking for. I've only had it a few days, and have already tried several recipes. And these easy recipes make you realize how easy it could be to create your own variations. As a singleton, I'm glad things serve one or two, and it gives me a better idea of what a right-sized portion should be.

These no-fuss recipes are great for ANYONE! You don't have to have diabetes to try these great tasting recipes. And it was such a pleasure to have easy to prepare recipes with amounts to serve one or two people-what a great way to try out a recipe! It is much simpler to double up or increase the serving size of recipes than to divide or reduce a recipe. I think this book should be re-titled to "No-fuss Recipes for One or Two"

"No-Fuss" is truly the best title for this cookbook. My 21 year old daughter, a college student, was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes recently. The dietician has her "counting carbs" and learning to identify slower-absorbing sources of carbohydrates. She is "new" to cooking, and these delicious recipes fit the trends of today's taste, ease of preparation, and are colorful and satisfying. We are hoping for "Book Two" to be out in a few years. Bravo to the writers!

Finally, quick recipes! Some of the recipes you get in other books have way too much prep time or are too complicated to make. I think this is the best resource for someone with diabetes who has to watch sugar/carb intake. I hope more versions of this book comes out.

I am stupid pissed about this book.

If you have Type 2 diabetes I urge you to read my review. Then please be your own health advocate and learn about your disease. Don't blindly trust your doctor or some random cook book or even this review.

- Why I disliked this product: Because it won't help you eat well for your diabetes.
- What was good about this product: The type-size was larger for those with vision problems so they can easier SEE the recipes that will kill them. The recipes are easy and you can kill yourself easier.

--------

We got this recipe book as a gift from a relative for Christmas. It was super thoughtful and we were happy (before we'd read it).

BACKGROUND

My husband got diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 5 months ago. He'd been experiencing vision issues, extreme thirst, fatigue, etc. It was a scary time, but ended up being one of the best things that could happen to us. The doctor put him on two medicines and our new life began. When I asked the Dr. when my husband might get off of the drugs if he turned around his eating - his answer was "never".

Instead of getting depressed, my husband immediately started doing research to figure out how to manage diabetes and what you should and should not be eating. We already eat plenty of good foods - but we were also eating plenty of bad foods.

The general idea of Type 2 diabetes (or high blood sugar) is that you have eaten SO many foods that cause your blood sugar to rise that you have ruined your body's ability to deal with it properly. Your body ends up being flooded with insulin and it leads to a host of medical problems.

So, I think everyone probably knows that eating straight up sugar is bad for your blood sugar.
