I got this book from the library and it has some really wonderful-sounding recipes. I am not a diabetic, but the healthy guidelines apply to everyone. There are many plant-based recipes for vegetarians like me.

When I am sick of eating healthy, I like to get out my healthy cookbooks & look through them for ideas. The pictures look so yummy that it is hard not to get motivated to get back on track. I always seem to find something new & delicious.
I like Hungry Girl cookbooks the best!
Diabetic people have low vitamin C levels. Vitamin C may reduce glycosylation. Vitamin C lowers sorbital in people with diabetes. Sorbital is a sugar that can accumulate and damage the nerves eyes and kidney of people with diabetes. C helps the heart, is an antioxidant. Vitamin C is not produced by the body; therefore it is necessary to take a huge amount of it.
Vitamin C significantly reduces urinary protein loss in people with diabetes
I spent the money for a recipe program for my computer and save recipes I find in magazines, books, online, etc.. We can only recall and save so many recipes from the many places we see them. This way, recipes I find which are healthy and look good are at my fingertips. This program actually allows me to copy a recipe and "captures" it to avoid a lengthy process of transcribing it over.
I bought Living Cookbook 2011 online for $35.00 and do like it.
