Diabetic cookbook recommendations?

wandajune6 | Sep 29, 2013 07:46 AM

I need a few great cookbooks for feeding my diabetic boyfriend who is just now coming to terms with the fact that he needs to eat like a diabetic and his 14 year old picky eater son. Both are happiest with traditional Mexican and American comfort foods and the son whines incessantly if there are vegetables and/or anything "weird."

Being new to diabetes, I'm struggling with cooking in ways that I know are healthy for him. Based on my knowledge, I'm basically doing South Beach Phase 1 but I'm running out of ideas and need a little more help. Based on this, I need cookbooks that:

-educate me a bit on food guidelines (I'd love to know the WHY behind the foods)
-provide tasty options for picky eaters
-give options that aren't too labor-intensive for 2 people with busy schedules

Any ideas? I've been reading lots of reviews of books but don't know what's actually worth buying.
