Having explored diabetic recipes for years, I've concluded that there are 2 primary schools of thought about healthy eating for diabetics. One is a balanced low fat diet; the other is low carb. My spouse and I are both diabetic. I eat low carb and remain off any medication. My husband's doc sent him to a nutritionist who taught him low fat and whole grains. He lost weight but can't control blood sugar without medication.
I found low carb recipes and techniques a long time ago from a group called Specific Carb Diet and Dr. Bernstein's.
I love Spark Recipes because I can find both low carb recipes and low fat recipes. There's an option to tweak a found recipe and make it closer to what you specifically need. I've used that quite a bit.

Yeah, we need some really good diabetic cookbooks!
ALL of the ones I've looked at are HIGH in carbs and seem to include sugar, bread or pasta in EVERY recipe.

I absolutely love the Spark People cookbook. My husband is a newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic. I would greatly appreciate a Spark People cookbook which is low in carbohydrates. I am hoping Chef Meg could do this for those who need specialized recipes. Thoughts?
