1 review about Diabetic Meals in 30 Minutes--Or Less!,...


  • Apr 9, 2010
I really know of no one who enjoys being on a diet or even having minor dietary restrictions for that matter. It is simply not fun. The best tasting meals, dishes and things all seem to be the ones that are the worse for us. I really, really despise diets, don't like them, not one bit. There is little is this world of food that I like better than a nice juicy cheese burger...go greasy that it drips down your arm when you eat it; loaded with cheese an served with an extra large plate of French fires; gain, plenty of grease. That and a nice chocolate malt...nummers!

But alas, the world is not also dished out the way we would like it and all good things come to an end eventually. It you are on a restricted diabetic diet, this book by Robyn Webb and published by the American Diabetes Association can go along way in making your life more bearable. Now this is not the beginning and end of all diabetic cook books, but it is certainly a nice addition to the arsenal you have available these days. Folks, I know food and I can tell you that there are many, many mighty tasty dishes between the covers of this book.

Each of the recipes have of course been kitchen tested (many in our own kitchen). This work also is a wonderful tool in figuring out portion sizes to aid blood sugar management and weight loss. It includes complete nutritional information and official ADA exchanges which is extremely helpful. Now, I am not one who normally likes quick to fix meals but many times they are simply necessary as we all led busy lives. I have not tried one of these meals that could not (with a bit of luck and skill) be prepared in 30 minutes or less.

The important factor there though is the taste of the food! There is something in the little book for everyone and I can attest to the fact that even the recipes of dishes that I am not overly fond of are actually quite good. The dishes I am fond of are terrific!

Everything is pretty well covered with good representative dishes; appetizers, Asian dishes, beans, beef, chicken, couscous, deserts, dips, fruit, pasta, pork, potatoes, pumpkin, rice, salads, salmon, sea foods, shrimp, soups, tomatoes, turkey and of course the ever present and available bane of my existence...vegetables.

It is very important to note that this book offers an extremely large variety which can lead the eater and diabetic to other books and other dishes. It is also important to note that each and ever recipe featured here can be expanded with little ease.

If you are stuck with a diet, either self imposed or medically imposed, you need not suffer quite as much as those of the past. This is good food folks and this little book is a wonderful help. I do highly recommend it.
