    Allison, I don’t normally plug my own work, but you mentioned nutritional analysis, and I wanted to say that a book I helped to write, “The Four Corners Diet,” has detailed nutritional analyses of all the recipes, including the main vitamins and minerals and “total available glucose, which is total carbs plus 58% of protein and 10% of fat.

    It’s a low-carb diet, and the idea was to convince dieticians that a LC diet could supply essential nutrients.

    Unfortunately, the book bombed, but that means you can find used copies for a penny online.

    I think I will stick with the Better Homes & Garden cookbook: fool-proof recipes and nutritional info, including carb counts.

      What might be interesting to explore is why the promos describe him as Type 2 and how this shapes his perspective.

    Isn’t pasta considered to be either low or medium on the glycemic index? At least regular wheat pasta cooked al dente. It generally ranks in the 40s or 50s, depending on the shape.

    I would absolutely love a copy of this cook book! I recently got a copy of Sam Talbot’s book and it has given me some great ideas, but I could always use more!

    The book looks fascinating. I love to cook when I have the time. DMBooks is a great effort to educate. My doctor gave me a cookbook named “The New Soul Food Cookbook for people with diabetes.” It’s free from the Merck Journey for control Program. It does have a nutritional breakdown of every recipe in it.

    1 cup flour – 1/8th of this should be 50/50 potato flour / arrowroot /flr if making with brown rice flr for gluten free! -The arrow root flr makes it holy!
    ½ tsp. Baking pwdr
    ½ tsp salt
    ½ tsp cayenne pepper – adjust to taste
    ½ cup butter [soft]
    2 cups grated extra old cheddar cheese
    3-4 tsp water

    -mix cheese, butter, water, salt, cayenne& bking pwdr.
    -add flour gradually
    -Roll in poppy seeds – black
    -refridgerate overnite
    -slice Thinly
    -bake in 400° oven X 10 – 12 min

    I’m sorry your cooking adventure with Michea Moore didn’t meet all your expectations.

    Allison – the above was a recipe originally in a published in the LCBO Food and Drink Magazine Autumn 2001- Ontario Liquor Control Board – we’re still a little behind up here when it comes to the purchase of Happy Hour neccessities! I adjusted it to suit my gluten free needs – originally the arrowroot flour was a mistake – the when the crackers came out lacy – well what a hit on the coctail table -There are never any left! Dietician advised the carbohydrate is minimum -and not to worry about it!!!!! – mostly protien & butter! Made with orange cheddar – they are perfect for halloween!! BOO!

    I think I’m too late for the giveaway but thanks DMBooks. We need more food that is delicious and healthy at the same time. I am a latina woman and I see a lot of people in my culture, specially latina moms, who are suffering for having to cook (and eat) unhealthy food. But hopefully things will change.

    [...] The cookbook is called “Blood Sugar: Inspiring Recipes for Anyone Facing the Challenge of Diabetes and Maintaining Good Health” by chef Michael Moore. I’m not going to write a review of it, because I pretty much agree with everything Allison said in her review on Diabetes Mine here. [...]
