There are thousands of recipes available but a lot don’t really work. I’m looking for recipes that are tried and tested by Mums

  • I second the Diabetes magazine – they have some great recipes in there. I have a friend who’s a diabetic and loves that mag – some of the food she brings for lunch looks really great.

  • I quite like looking at the Diabetic Living magazines and website as the cooking is seasonal and supposedly some of it is recommended by real people.

  • yeah that is a great suggestion and that maybe mom could put up special recipe section. Like gluten free, diabetic, vegetarian, vegan etc. Makes finding recipes so much easier.

  • Some states run a shopping trip. You learn how to read and understand the contents in the ingredients? Have you seen a Dietician or Diabetes Educator? Make sure you choose those that have a provider number. Some who don’t don’t have proper training and done appropriate studies (you also can’t claim from Medicare or you private health fund – I was sent to one – I lost weight but my cholestoral doubled in 6 weeks). My GP wasn’t aware that he didn’t have a Provider Number. he wasn’t happy with the results of another patient he had sent to the guy either – he also charged a lot more than the genuine Dietician I saw.

  • Thanks everyone. I have checked the Diabetes Australia website but I was hoping to get tried and tested recipes from MoM because some on the website just’ don’t work.

  • Diabetes Australia have an infoline too and resources and you could get help with recipes.

  • Have you tried that magazine that used to be advertised by Rob from better homes and gardens – might be worth looking into – some libraries hire magazines too

  • Diabetes Australia has a wonderful site with recipes and lots of other info. Maybe take a look at this site?
