    Where can I find recipes that are diabetic friendly?

    I’ve found it difficult to locate diabetic friendly recipes that are tasty. Is there a website or a cookbook that anyone can recommend?

    There are plenty of diabetes-friendly recipe books available - the best place to find these is your state diabetes association.  The Low GI Diet Cookbook (Jennie Brand Miller et al) is also a good choice as is Diabetic Living Magazine (available by subscription or in newsagents) and Healthy Food Guide Magazine (you can also find some recipes on their website http://www.healthyfoodguide.com.au/). Sanitarium has good recipes for using legumes, grains and vegetables http://www.sanitarium.com.au/recipes

     Taste.com.au is also a good site to browse as it doe have sections dedicated to low GI meals suitable for people with Diabetes.

    The Symply Too Good To Be true cookbooks are also great, simple, nutrition anaylsis and GI values for all their meals.

    There are many cookbooks but one of the best recipe books I've ever seen is Diabetes Living, which is actually a magazine that comes out regularly. It has some great recipes in it that are diabetes friendly. But really, it's about healthy eating. Therefor people with diabetes can follow any recipe they like but may need to adapt them slightly so they are a healthier version. Having a talk to a dietitian might help you with getting that information.
