Some of My Favorite Diabetic Cookbooks

bettycrocker_diabetes_cookbookIf I’ve learned nothing, and I’ve learned much on this diabetic’s journey, I’ve learned that it is important to plan your meals and manage your eating wisely. One missed meal could land me in the hospital. If the meal is not cooked properly to accommodate this disease, then I could be sick from eating the wrong things. We aren’t going down like that, you hear?

So to keep my eating in check, I’ve found some cookbooks that I rely on daily to help me eat well and right.

Recipes for the Good Life & Patti Labelle’s Lite Cuisine by Patti Labelle

Ultimate Diabetes Meal Planner by Jaynie Higgins

Betty Crocker’s Diabetes Cookbook by the editors of Betty Crocker Cookbooks. I was thrilled to see this cookbook. I have always loved having a Betty Crocker cookbook  on my kitchen bookshelf.

You can also go online to Taste of Home for diabetic recipes and here is a wonderful, free recipe e-book published by the American Diabetes Association, it’s titled Taste and See.

If you don’t plan your meals and plan the preparation of your meals, it becomes too easy to fall back into old, bad habits such as eating whatever is available. We all know where that got us, right?

Take care of yourself now.
