Product Description:

Have you longed for exotic, international recipes that are high in fiber and unrefined carbohydrates, but low in calories, sodium, and fat? Are you tired of cooking the same dishes over and over again, and weary of adapting recipes to a low-sugar eating plan?

Here are nearly three hundred new and delicious recipes chosen from fifty-five countries and ethnic groups from around the world, offering you healthful meals and snacks - from hearty soups and fragrant spice blends to a spectacular array of vegetables, grains, entrees, desserts, tropical fruits, and more. If you have diabetes, cook for someone on a sugar-restricted diet, or are simply eager to try worldwide favorites, you'll enjoy sumptuous, satisfying recipes in the pages of Diabetic Cooking from Around the World.

Author Vilma Liacouras Chantiles has canvassed twenty-eight diabetes associations and specialists on every continent to gather these genuine, zesty recipes. The results are here for you to savor again and again and include such exotic dishes as spicy Argentinean empanadas and chicken curry from Bangladesh; Patlijan Karni Yarek (Armenian Stuffed Eggplant) and Appelpannekoeken (Dutch Apple Pancakes) from Holland; Norwegian Spinach Soup and Kenya Stew; Paludeh (Persian Fruit Delight) and Cheese Muffins, New Zealand style. There are many, many other mouth-watering choices.

For each easy-to-follow recipe you'll find complete nutritional information: calories; grams of carbohydrate, protein, fat, and fiber; milligrams of potassium, sodium, and cholesterol; plus the food exchanges per serving.

Hundreds of delicious, healthful meals and snacks in the pages of this book help provide a varied diet for anyone interested in eating meals free of excessive sugar, sodium, and fat.
