This is a cookbook I was really looking forward to because it is written by a diabetic, not just an educator who has studied about diabetes. The author freely shares that she is type 1 and how she has to work hard to manage it. In the many cookbooks I have read, it is very rare to have one actually written by a diabetic.And her insights into what it means to try and meal plan as a diabetic are priceless. To me that is one of the greatest strengths of this book. Unfortunately the actual book didn't measure up, or give her the chance I feel she needed to shine.THE PROS:Larger font and layout makes it easier to read the recipes - this should be a standard for all diabetic books.Many meal plans and calorie levels to choose from.THE CONS:No pictures at all - I realize that it adds to the cost to put in color pictures but that's an expense I would be willing to pay. Without any pictures it is a very text heavy book.Recipes have VERY Misleading Names-For example, take the recipe on page 288 titled, "All Natural High Fiber Peach Squares" But, it is made using Splenda which is artificial and anything but "natural". The fiber is only 2 grams which is not high fiber at all. A high fiber rating needs be 5 grams or more which, as diabetics know, anything over 5 grams can be subtracted from the total carbohydrate count - thus lowering the amount of impact the carbs will have on the blood sugar.Not enough of the author in the book-Ms. Higgins does share some from her personal experience in a few pages at the front of the book, but I feel she should have had many more pages of advice and insight scattered throughout the book.
