Delicious Dishes for Diabetics - A Mediterranean Way of Eating by Robin Ellis

I was going to recommend this book in reply to a previous post but can no longer find it. Although aimed at Type II diabetics it is suitable for all as it follows the principles of a Mediterranean diet. It is also suitable for Type I and Type 1.5 diabetics. The only fault I have with the book is that I count carbs and the recipes do not contain the carb content leaving me to work it out. I am in favour of carb counting.

Many of you will remember Robin Ellis as the star of the original Poldark who did not need to strip to the waist in every episode. I always had a crush on Demelza (played by Angharad Rees ). He (Robin) has always been keen on cooking and is now retired in France. He developed Type II some years ago.

Hi, if anyone is looking for a book to order, try “ the book depository “ I have been using them for quite a few years they don’t charge post/package for anywhere in the world so posting to to Granddaughters in Australia is great the Robin Ellis cook book is in stock for £13.30 and free delivery not bad.

Another good one is the Fast 800 Recipe book. A low carb Mediterranean style cook book. It's in Tesco. I am not advertising and it is purely personal choice. Some good stuff in there though. 😁

Hi Michael, hope you are progressing steadily. Like you I like to count carbs. Any suggestions for books that take the faff out of calculating them yourself? Have got the Fast800 one, but always looking for inspiration. I know there are lots of individual recipes on the internet, but always prefer a book! Xx
