Tasty dishes for diabetics

April 11, 1999|By Joe Capista

Every diabetic knows the importance of diet in keeping blood glucose levels normal. Even the tastiest recipes, though, are doomed to grow tiresome. Then what?

"The Better Homes and Gardens New Diabetic Cookbook" (Meredith Books/Better Homes and Gardens; 1999; hardcover $24.95) hones in on recent developments in diabetes, combining new knowledge with the latest culinary delights.

Featured are 150 recipes, which, according to editor Kristi Fuller, yield "great-tasting food that appeals to the whole family." Each recipe comes with simple instructions and a nutritional breakdown of each dish, and is discussed in light of the entire diet. There's stuffed french toast, cranberry pork chops and mint chocolate cream puffs on the menu, so it's time to get cooking.
