Default Diabetic Cookbook

I just got one for my birthday. Put out by the American Heart Association.
Says it is for Diabetes and Heart Healthy.

I won't repost the whole thing but here is a sample breakfast menu:

1 serving Apricot and Apple Granola
1 Whole Grain English Muffin with teaspoon of tub margarine
1 cup Orange juice

Say what? I can't see how a meal like that would be good for anyone, much
less a diabetic!

The sample menus are all based on over 2,000 calories per day. I can't even
eat half of that. And certainly not that many carbs.

The recipes do give carb counts and there are actually a few that are low
carb or fairly low carb but some seem to me to have unnecessary carbs. Like
some kind of fish with orange salsa. Now I don't eat low carb but I sure am
not going to waste the carbs that I do eat on something like an orange!
Yeah, I know some people like oranges. I'm not one of them.

There are actually a few recipes in there that I would eat. I say would
because I can't. 61 grams of carb per serving? Count me out.

The person who gifted me with this is not a diabetic. I just feel bad about
it. This isn't the first such book I've been given. I'm sure that the
people who buy these books think they are doing a good thing. But I feel
they are being taken advantage of.

Sounds about par for the course. I find those books to be totally worthless.

Diabetic patients need to be very cautious about what they consume on a daily basis. Consulting a physician is always the best approach to get the right diet for a diabetic patient.

If I even thought about eating that meal, my BGL would be up around 300.

I normally have 1/2 C. egg beaters with 1 egg, a meat (right now we are
hooked on the polish kielbasa), a biscuit with margerine and SF jam, and
coffee with splenda and 1/2 & 1/2. Sometimes we will have a quesadilla,
or I will fix roasted potatoes with cheese instead of the biscuits.
