Asian Flavors Diabetes Cookbook Review

Updated on October 7, 2012

While visiting Chinese buffet restaurants may pose difficulties for individuals following a diabetic diet, that doesn’t mean that all Asian food is off-limits. Not every Asian dish is high in sugar; many selections are naturally quite healthy. Learn how to prepare your own wonderful meals at home with the Asian Flavors Diabetes Cookbook .

About the Book

Asian Flavors Diabetes Cookbook features more than 100 recipes for dishes from throughout Asia designed specifically for the needs of individuals following a diabetic diet way of eating.

The book opens with an introductory section designed to help readers get prepared to make Asian meals in their own kitchens. This section provides details on stocking your pantry in preparation for experimenting with the recipes presented in the book, as well as general information about staples commonly used in Asian cooking.

The remainder of the book is devoted to recipes, with a variety that is sure to impress even the most discriminating connoisseurs of Asian cuisine. The dishes are healthful and consistent with a diabetic diet, of course, but they’re also great-tasting selections that everyone in your household is sure to enjoy.

A few of the super recipes you can learn how to prepare from this book include:

  • Beef Satay
  • Crepes with Banana
  • Curry-Spiced Grilled Shrimp
  • Fresh Vegetable Summer Roles
  • Garlic-Cilantro Jasmine Rice
  • Grilled Zucchini with Ginger-Soy Sauce
  • Shrimp and Pork Wontons
  • Stir-Fried Asian Greens
  • Tofu Pot Stickers
  • Many other delicious dishes

Don’t let the fact that this book is specific to a diabetic way of eating fool you. While it’s a great option for those who are diabetic or who are following a diabetic diet, it is by no means a collection of what you’d think of when you think of weight loss recipes. Instead, this book is an outstanding resource for anyone who wants to master preparing Asian meals at home - dieters or not.
