At last! This special cookbook puts flavor and choice back on the menu for people with diabetes and their families Betty Crocker, America's most trusted friend in the kitchen, has teamed up with the International Diabetes Center (IDC)--one of the leading medical centers--to create an indispensable source of easy-to-make recipes and up-to-the-minute food and nutrition information for the growing numbers of people who have diabetes, more than 15 million of them. Here is the first cookbook to include recipes featuring Carbohydrate Choices--the new, simplified approach to meal planning recommended by the American Diabetes Association. For people who find diet exchanges too hard, too limiting or too much work, this new method is a real breakthrough. Each of the book's 140 recipes shows the number of Carbohydrate Choices per serving, so that planning the rest of the meal is easy. From Old-Time Beef and Vegetable Stew to Creamy Vanilla-Caramel Cheesecake, the recipes are made with everyday ingredients, including sugar. No food groups or ingredients are left out, so there's no need for anyone to feel deprived or restricted to a special diet. Food exchanges are also included, making it easy for those who still count calories. Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook is also packed with expert medical and nutrition tips from Dr. Richard Bergenstal, an endocrinologist and diabetes doctor, and two registered nurses--invaluable for the newly diagnosed as well as for those who have been coping with diabetes for years. Throughout the book, real-life advice from people who have diabetes offers inspiration and great ideas on dealing with this chronic disease. When it comes to eating and living with diabetes, people need guidance and advice they can trust.
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook This book makes it easy to come up with different foods to cook. With three diabetics in the house it is sometimes difficult to come up with new things to eat, including deserts. This book solves that problem....more info

Great Cookbook This cookbook is wonderful. The recipes are easy to make and taste great too.
LOVED this book! My husband is diabetic and I have been trying hard to find recipes that are good and quick and easy. I FINALLY found a GREAT cookbook that does that! (leave it to Betty Crocker!) I grew up with the same Betty Crocker cookbook that was passed down from my grandmother to my mother and so on... and now Betty has done it again! These recipes are wonderful, and easy to use! I just wish there were more Diabetic cookbooks by Betty Crocker! This is a GREAT book to have! ...more info
Great Cookbook and more! You will find great recipes in this cookbook and learn how to plan meals and snacks for diabetics. This book also explains diabetes and gives guidelines on how to live with it. Our doctor ordered one to have in his office to show his other patients after I showed him my copy. It has been so helpful in coping with this new lifestyle....more info
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook: Everyday Meals, Easy as 1-2-3 I bought this book as a gift for a friend of mine who recently discovered that he was diabetic. The book was great. Who doesn't love Betty Crocker? Very affordable, the order or the recipes flowed nicely. The quality of the book was exceptional with great graphics and details that any cook would love. Loaded with receipes that everyone can eat, plus a reference chapter that talked about the diabetic condition and establishing a healthier life style (something we all could do). Of course this doesn't take the place of seeing a doctor, but it was very informative. Would highly recommend for anyone and everyone. ...more info
Easy Easy Easy I love this book. It is the one book I recommend to newly diagnosed diabetecs because it counts your choices for you. My non-diabetics friends are always asking for recipes from this book. I have a number of other diabetes books, buying this one because we like our Betty Crocker Red Book so much. Easy to make snacks and desserts. ...more info
Betty Crocker Diabetes Cookbook Nothing at all wrong with the finished food. But the book is only good if you are rich and have plenty of time to shop. The women who presented the meals obviously fit into both categories. If they were just regular people (like the name, Betty Crocker, is supposed to represent) they would not have said that these are quick and easy to prepare....more info
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook: Everyday Meals, Easy as 1-2-3 This is the best book I have found so far with recipes for the diabetic. I was just recently diagnosed and dreaded having to change my cooking plans. This book has provided "regular" recipes and has given me some great menu ideas. You don't need a library of diabetic cookbooks - you just need this one. I use it everyday!!!...more info
GREAT COOKBOOK!!!! WE JUST FOUND OUT A FEW WEEKS AGO THAT MY SWEET HUBBY HAS DIABETIES. SO I CAME HERE TO FIND A COOKBOOK TO HELP ME FEED HIM GOOD NUTRICIOUS MEALS. WHEN I RECIEVED IT I WAS SUPRISED TO FIND INFORMATION ABOUT DIABETES AND IT HELPED ME AND HIM TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HIS CONDITION. AS HIS DR. TOLD HIM, "YOU CAN EAT MOST ANYTHING, JUST WATCH YOUR CARBS AND SERVING SIZES, AND BE SURE TO WEIGHT AND MEASURE YOUR FOODS." SO, HE HAS SO MANY CARBS AND CALORIES A DAY AND I TRY TO FIND THE BEST WAY TO "SPEND THEM" ON THE BEST FOODS. HE IS DOING GREAT ON THIS AND IT HELPS ME ALSO BY PUTTING THE NUMBER OF CARBS IN THE TOP CORNER OF EACH RECIPIE. YEAH!! NO HAVING TO FIGURE THAT OUT.
THERE ARE SOOO MANY GOOD RECIPIES IN HERE TOO. WE DO NOT USE SUGAR, WE USE SPLENDA IN EVERYTHING AND IT TASTES GREAT!! THIS COOKBOOK WAS AN ANSWER TO A PRAYER....I LOVE IT!!!! IT IS JUST AS THE COVER SAYS "EASY AS 1-2-3!!!"
Great Cookbook! My husband was recently diagnosed with diabetes. He had to change his eating habits immediately. This book made it so easy to come up with tasty recipes. He loved everything I cooked and never felt he was missing out on the "bad" foods. I really liked the insert telling us how many starches etc. in each dish. ...more info
Great Source of Information There are good recipes as well as information about the diabetic diet in this cookbook. ...more info
Wonderful for the newly diagnosed This book was recommended to us and I am REALLY glad we tried it. It is very helpful and the food is tasty. There is also a sample menu in the back which we are following and substituting for variety as needed. VERY GOOD book, you'll like it and he will too!...more info
Betty Crockers Diabetes Cookbook Book was received in a timely manner and in very good condition....more info
Love, love, love it! When I was first diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes three years ago, I rushed out and bought all sorts of diabetic cookbooks. I tried recipe after recipe and gave it up as a waste of time, as the food was tasteless, blah and aimed mainly at Type 2s. Then I tried Betty Crocker - PHENOMENAL! The food has taste, doesn't worry overmuch about fat (which can be corrected for with insulin), and impresses the heck out of my non-diabetic friends! Who needs more than that? And they mean it when they say that it's simple - you don't have to be a chef to make these recipes, a knife and a whisk is usually all that's needed. YAY! I make a point of trying a new recipe every week, and the list of 'must make' favorites keeps growing!...more info
Diabetic Cookbook- Betty Crocker This is a great cookbook, easy to use and easy to understand. I highly recommend it to you....more info
EASY COOKING MADE EASY FOR DIABETICS I purchased 2 copies of Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook because my great nephew who is 5 years old is a diabetic. I want him to be able to spend time with me and his cousins, but I want to prepare meals that everyone can eat. Betty Crocker did just that and I can prepare his meals and know exactly what the carbs are without any difficult. This book is for anyone who wants to be healthy. I gave the other copy of the book to his grandmother. I highly recommend this book and it want take long to prepare a nice healthy meal for a diabetic. And, it's easy to read.
Decent Recipies I originally purchased this cookbook for my father who is a diabetic that loves to cook. He loves the recipies in there and told me about them. I'm not diabetic but am very conscious of what and how I cook for the family, genetics being any indication for our future. I purchased one for myself. It is good, the recipes give you the nuitritional information and the carbohydrate counts for each one. It has a variety of foods in there to please just about every taste. The steps are easy to follow and you don't have to be a gourmet to accomplish a satisfying dish. ...more info
A Good Place to Start I've read the mixed reviews on this product, and I feel like both are merited. If you're new to cooking on a diabetic diet (or just a healthier diet), then this is a very good place to start. Recipes are simple and use everyday food items, and the nutrition content is included for every meal. If you're more experienced, though, the recipes are more "food for thought" to provide ideas. There's PLENTY of room to make them more nutritious--for example, one especially tasty-looking entry calls for a highly refined rice ingredient that provides very little nutritional value. Instead of using it as written, try substituting brown rice and adding your own seasonings (I use a brown and wild rice mixture and add thyme, shallots, etc.). The nice thing about this cookbook is that there's plenty of flexibility to make a recipe "yours" by modifying ingredients to your own taste and nutritional preferences....more info

Wonderful! We have tried about a dozen recipies out of the book and my family has only not liked two of them. I have even been able to get my fiance to eat fish, that is a first! I recomend this book to EVERYONE, not just those with Diabetes but anyone who wants to change they eat for the better....more info
Finally a cookbook for diabetics that calls for "real" ingredients! Most cookbooks I've seen for diabetics call for all sorts of "fake" ingredients that I find totally unappetizing. This book, however, uses mostly "real" ingredients and has recipes that the whole family can enjoy. One of the horrifying things about being a diabetic is being "different", having to eat "different" foods and substitutes for the real thing. The recipes in this book sound really appetizing and the pictures make me want to run to the market so that I can start cooking. There are even dessert items like Double-Berry Muffins that don't call for any strange ingredients. It even gives you a choice of using a real egg or a fat-free, cholesterol-free egg product if you have a cholesterol problem. I admit I haven't read ALL the recipes yet, but of all the ones I HAVE read, the ingredients are readily available in regular supermarkets. No special trips to the health food store required. I would highly recommend this cookbook for diabetic who, like me, don't like to feel deprived and don't like to eat a lot of fake ingredients. (They give me gastric problems!)...more info
Great starter cookbook for newly diagnosed diabetic! Wonderful hardcover cookbook. Very useful information not found in any of the other diabetic cookbooks. Great recipes and I really like the illustrations. We're making the caramel cheesecake for Thanksgiving. Easy 1,2,3 system to track carb levels....more info
Disappointing Maybe I have too many cook books, but I didn't find this any different than any other book that gives nutritional breakdowns. Many of the recepies had too many carbs &/or fats. Among other things, I was hoping for interesting ways to make diabetic cookies and other goodies without fruit. Many of the ingredients are not available in ordinary stores. I found it ho hum and not worth the price....more info
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook To a diabetic, eating correctly is really hard to do..And finding recipe's that are tasty, attractive, full of nutrition and easy to prepare is quite a job. This cookbook is exactly what a diabetic needs.. It makes cooking as easy as 123...It's wonderful..!!!...more info
A Great Gift This was a gift for my mom who cooks for my dad who was just diagnosed with diabetes. She loves it. She told me she has looked at other diabetic cookbooks but was not impressed with any of them. This one is full of usable recipes and info both her and my father can use to support him through this disease. ...more info
The Best Diabetes Cookbook Ever! The Betty Crocker Diabetes Cookbook is just as fantastic as the regular Betty Crocker Cookbook. The pictures are mouth-watering, the recipes are easy to follow, and they taste wonderful! My husband, who is diabetic, found it hard to believe they were from a diabetes cookbook. If you are diabetic and buy just one cookbook, buy this one!! If you don't have diabetes but are trying to eat healthy, this is the book for you. I recommend it whole heartedly!...more info
Perfect recipes for Diabetic For those who thought desserts are not for diabetics, here's a book which is a must read. The ingredients used in the recipes are the basic things found in every kitchen thus making it enjoyable for all in the family. The book also has doctor's advice to remain fit. A great book for diabetic people.
Not Exactly What I Needed This is a good cookbook with good information but a lot of the recipes use ingredients that I can't use as they are unavailable in our area or very expensive. Having diabetes is expensive on its own and the food should be simple and easy to put together. Diabetes takes a lot of time to manage and when you are just beginning with the process and looking for help - this is not the book for you. Perhaps after things have settled down and I am more used to dealing with diabetes, it will more useful. If you want truly unique recipes, try this. If you want ordinary food that is good for you, try something else....more info
The 30 Day Diabetes Miracle is more helpful in controlling blood sugar! I highly recommend the 30-Day Diabetes Miracle series for managing your diabetes and creating a whole new healthy lifestyle!

Who cares about refined carbohydrates, this bookis great! Our nutritionist says to simply watch the amount of carbs. They haven't told us to stay away from anything. My husband is a picky eater so I didn't have a lot of options until I got this cookbook! We have tried 8 of the 21 recipes my husband would eat and they have all been a hit. I have never been interested in cooking before and so I am not only learning how to cook for a diabetic but also learning how to cook. This is a must have for every diabetic but especially for a picky eater!...more info
Just Great This cookbook is one of the best diabetic cookbooks around and I thank Betty Crocker for allowing us poor diabetics the priviledge of reading it. I particularly like the fact that she gives a Carbohydrate choice scale number at the top of each recipe and that at the end she gives a neutrition table for each recipe. These are extremely helpful to a new diabetic. Also the recipes are very easy to read and follow. I would recommend this book to any diabetic who wishes to cook and eat regular food instead of all the bland stuff that the doctors and neutritionists try to say that a diabetic must eat.
Easy cooking I like the cookbook overall. It has mostly regular ingredients and easy to follow instructions. The things I have cooked from it have not been delicious but I am not an excellent cook so will continue trying other recipies....more info
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook Excellent - does a good job with carb choices and recipes are easy and as in the title everyday - excellent for the newly diagnosed....more info
Great Book I really liked this cookbook. I was impressed by the speed at which it arrived at my door. For a "used" book it was in excellent condition. Thanks!!!...more info
