America's Complete Diabetes Cookbook is a collection of recipes from a variety of sources, which together comprise tasty and healthy selections for people with diabetes. One of the keys to successfully managing diabetes is meal planning, and the majority of people affected by diabetes and their family members will tell you this is the most challenging task in living day to day with this disease. In fact, most Americans have six or seven "standard" meals, which can become uninspiring whether or not they have any health concerns.

Good nutrition and healthy eating receive lots of attention in the press! Americans with diabetes are aware that what they eat is important not only to help manage blood sugar levels, but also to help prevent complications of diabetes such as cardiovascular disease. A balanced intake also plays an important role in the prevention of other diseases such as osteoporosis and cancer.

Although not originally designed for those with diabetes, these recipes have been analyzed for nutrient content, and on each page you will find the nutrient information (energy in calories, carbohydrate, fiber, protein, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium) that will help you fit these recipes into your meal plan.

Whether you use the Exchange Lists for Meal Planning©, carbohydrate count or attempt to choose a balanced intake, these recipes are for you. The exchanges are provided for those who follow a meal plan and use the Exchange system. Carbohydrate and fiber have been included with each recipe to permit easy carbohydrate counting for those who like more flexibility at meals.

You will also find recipe tips, complete meal suggestions and make-ahead information on the recipes contained in this book. Start today and expand your choices in diabetes meal planning. I am sure you will be able to find a wide range of new family favorites that will make this cookbook one of the staples in managing your meals. Enjoy...
