Take control with more than 400 healthy and inspired diabetes-friendly recipes.

Without compromising flavor, we’ve tailored these recipes to fit within the often-daunting nutritional parameters of a carbohydrate-conscious diet, paying special attention to fat, sodium, and calories. This collection of recipes will show you that you don’t have to give up the foods you love and will encourage you to branch out and try new ingredients as well as learn some innovative techniques and strategies.

A foreword by the prominent head of the renowned Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, explains the role of diet and cooking in combatting diabetes. Thirteen recipe chapters feature everything from Breakfast; Appetizers and Snacks; and Soups, Stews, and Chilis to Meat, Vegetarian Mains, and Special Treats.

Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Swapping out regular cheddar for extra-sharp cheddar allows us to use less cheese without compromising the soup’s cheesy flavor. Recent research indicates that a low-fat diet is not necessary for people with diabetes or anyone else—as long as the right type of fat is consumed. We use full-fat cheeses throughout the Complete Diabetes cookbook because they have better flavor.

One-Pan Pork Chops and Vegetables with Parsley Vinaigrette

An easy weeknight meal full of incredible flavor with plenty of roasted vegetables, including unpeeled potatoes and whole garlic cloves (we said it was easy!). Season with lots of fresh herbs and serve with a vinaigrette full of bright flavor and olive oil.

Desserts and Baked Goods

Our diabetes-friendly treats, including Banana Ice Cream and Summer Peach Cake center on fruits, nuts, dark chocolate, whole-wheat flour, and less refined sugar and should be reserved for special occasions. It is recommended that diabetes-friendly desserts be eaten as part of a meal (instead of on their own) to aid in delayed digestion and glucose tolerance at that meal.
